will 12.0Ah battery fit this trimmer?

Asked by: brdman
Yes it will. I have no personally done it, but Milwaukee designed all of it's 18v tools to use the batteries interchangeably. I've used my 5.0Ah batteries on the trimmer, as well as my 9.0Ah. I've looked at the shape of the 12.0Ah and the rear of the trimmer and there is nothing that should keep it from fitting.

M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless String Trimmer Kit with 9.0Ah Battery and Rapid Charger is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1370.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The claims that it's as powerful as a 2 stroke are inaccurate at best. If you just need to clean... The claims that it's as powerful as a 2 stroke are inaccurate at best. If you just need to clean up the spots your mower can't get on a weekly basis then it's probably perfect. It can do more but it does it slowly. Don't expect to walk at a normal pace down the driveway and sidewalks for edging, don't expect to swing it through anything dense and watch it all disappear. It can do these things but you have to take your time. The guard on it is also very small so it throws crap all over constantly. Probably expect to wear pants and a face shield. I expected it to be much quieter than it is. I decided to still wear ear plugs. The angle of the head isn't correct for me (5'-11") so I have to hold it down unnaturally in order for it to cut flat. I had trouble getting the string to feed properly (New quick load head), that includes both sizes of included Milwaukee line and some plain round 0.95 that I had. Overall, if you know what you are getting then it's recommended. If you expect it to replace and be just as good as your 2-stroke, you'll be disappointed. For reference purposes I went back to my Husqvarna 223L after about 15 min with the Milwaukee and the Milwaukee went back to the store.

About 10 minutes tops for me. It doesn't cut as well as my Echo gas trimmer ( 10 yrs old ). The short battery life is compounded by the extra time spent cutting a fixed volume of grass as compared to a good gas trimmer. As a kicker, when I went back inside to charge the battery back up, it sat for 10 minutes blinking the fast red light on the charger. Most likely the battery was too hot and the charger was protecting it. You will absolutely want at least 2 batteries, maybe more. If you have a lot of work to do you may need an extra charger as well. With 2 batteries and 1 charger you will go immediately from the first battery to an already charged one. When the fresh battery runs out, your other battery will still have a ways to go to recharge. Down time. It's a nice break over listening to the gas trimmer and burning my arm on the motor. I suspect that all of the current generation of battery trimmers, hedge trimmers, poles saws, etc, have this same battery life challenge.

Very powerful and awesome charger that is fast, if you have smaller battery this charge them much faster. One and only issue is that it is not possible to do edging with this and there are lots of products out there that do that, that means the head of trimmer won't turn, only in one position and it is for cutting places where mower can not go. it works great as most of Milwaukee product does, I think that is why it is on great sale price at the time of reviewing it because probably they are coming out with newer version that does edging as well. The nylon thread is very good quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Issues with trigger, less than a year old. First off I have to say I have 6-7 different weed trimmers as I have a 23 acre property and lots of weeds. The Milwaukee M18 Fuel weed trimmer wasn't cheap and therefore I expected better performance than what I've got so far. After using this for a 10-15 minutes the trigger doesn't respond, the motor cuts in and out, is it overheated? Not sure how this could be as this is a "Professional" grade tool and sold as such, where you should be able to use this for hours on end. Just got out the Stihl and finished the job.

I bought this trimmer 2 weeks ago ($199 deal of the day with a 9 amp battery) and I am going to return it, I am not sure how there are so many positive reviews for this. The main problem I am having is that the bump feed system doesn't work, I read multiple times the instruction and watched the video about how to load the string but the string just get stuck and the bump feed does not work. I will return it today or tomorrow. Also the battery life is good but I was expecting a little more for a 9 amp battery, I noticed that Milwaukee batteries are made in China, while Dewalt are made in Japan, I am not sure if this is a factor. I have a wide range of Dewalt 20V and 60V tools but I had been trying to avoid to get the trimmer as I have heard that the Dewalt engine is in the front, gets debris and overheats.

However, the power diminished greatly once I passed the 20 minute window. That is very disappointing considering the weed-water is advertised with 90 minutes of run time. There is NO WAY this weed-eater will run for 90 minutes.
