Does all I need around the house
I'm a plumber and am already invested in 3,000 dollars worth of tools, so it was a no-brainer when it came to battery powered hedge clippers. For the price of the bare tool I was off and running when I popped in my high output 12.0. my bushes outsider of my home have not been taken care of in a while but this tool cut through them in about 2 hours and only drained 2 bars of battery life. Yet another great tool from this company. The only thing I would mention to a new buyer of Milwaukee tools is with durability comes weight. Other than that you will not find a better product out there than Milwaukee products

        Junk batteries don’t lock into it
        All right so I bought this with the intention of mounting it to the wall in my trailer to keep all my batteries neat and organized it’s even got wall mount spots on it but it doesn’t do any good when you’re mounting it in a trailer and all the batteries vibrate loose and fall on the floor and brake and crack open. Not to mention these new 9 AMp hour high output batteries last about five. I have a similar charger by Ryobi and it even has a USB port on it and they clip in the place and don’t fall out. I have $1,000s of dollars in Milwaukee tools slowly Phasing them out

          Heavy Duty But Heavy
          I've been wanting to get rid of my old gas-powered trimmer because it was a hassle to use, you know, mixing oil and gas, fuel stabilizer, carb adjustments, the noise, the fumes, etc... I went on the cheap and bought one from the orange brand (no, not Ridgid, the other one), and came to regret it quickly. So here I am with this Milwaukee trimmer now and I will say it is not a cheaply made tool. In fact, it looks and feels like it will last a lifetime, albeit with a few drawbacks, chiefly that it is a very HEAVY tool, and expensive. Even my old gas-powered one was not this heavy, which makes it hard to recommend to anyone other than those who are into Milwaukee tools or have already invested in the M18 ecosystem and want to keep battery chargers to a minimum while moving away from gas and into battery tools. To use this tool you really need to be strong because even after only 20 minutes of use you start to feel its weight. Luckily, 20 minutes is about all I need to get the entire yard trimmed with this beast. It powers through hedges and bushes effortlessly and it has a great ergonomic design that allows you to quickly change angles or direction. If it was lighter it would be delightful to use. Battery life from the included 9.0 AH High Demand battery is stellar. 20 minutes of nonstop use and not even a single bar went down on the Fuel indicator. I might even try it with one of my smaller M18 batteries and see how it does. If nothing else, I figure it will at least make it a bit lighter. All in all, I recommend it but only if you think you'll be able to handle the weight for extended periods of time. I believe it comes in at 12 lbs with the battery, so keep that in mind before you spend almost two hundos on it. And if you don't already own a few other Milwaukee M18 tools, I'd seriously consider other options first that may be lighter or less expensive than this one.

            This thing is awesome, have used similar products in the past, both corded and cordless and this has both reach and cutting power far above the rest, the only thing close to comparison is a gas Stihl hedge trimmer, but at half the cost.

            This hedge trimmer is more than I expected. It is lightweight and well balanced. The 24 inch blade makes quick work of my bushes and shrubs which allows me more time to do other things. I have always believed in Milwaukee products and this tool will not disappoint you .

            This tool is the best hedge trimmer! It was delivered 4 hours ago and I immediately spent 1.5 hours to trim the front boxwood and hick-yew hedges. I didn't have to worry about dragging a cord around or accidentally unplugging it or cutting it in half. It is such a well balanced hedge trimmer and even after trimming everything including another long viburnum hedge which doesn't show in the picture I still had 3 cells left on a 12.0 ah battery. Every tool I own is Milwaukee and I'm happy to add this to my collection.

              I used Milwaukee Fuel Tools for some time now and expected the performance I got when I used the hedge trimmer. A little heavy at first for someone my age (66) with the 9.0 battery but did get used to the weight. The trimmer performed as good as the corded one, without the cord it is a better tool.

              People are complaining about it only able to charge one battery at a time, but Hilti’s four battery bay charging station does the exact same thing. I don’t want the rapid charge, because I want my batteries to last. This solution gives me the opportunity to charge all my batteries when I get off work and not have to worry about switching batteries when they’re fully charged. I have three 9.0’s and two 5.0’s and this is a must have. I was hesitant to pull the trigger, but I’m really happy that I did, because it’s my life that much easier without having to micromanaging batteries lol

                Cutting the cord means no more cutting the cord. It is so nice to not have to lug a cord around. I think this 72 year old did his 60 ft hedge in half the time it took last time. Last time I told myself it was probably my last time doing this job, but Milwaukee came to the rescue. I love my 18V Milwaukee tools! I cleaned up the left over litter with my 18V compact blower http://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M18-Compact-Blower-0884-20/204834633
