Amazing at first - overheats and fails now
When I first started using this trimmer I was in love. Fast, light, powerful. Then a month later, I noticed the plastic around the battery contact was melted at the negative terminal. I switched batteries, and the new battery terminal melted again. There's a grey/tan powder on the battery which I cleaned off which only appears on the batteries I use on the trimmer. My Milwuakee chainsaw doesn't do this. Then it it began having intermittent failures - it wouldn't start so I'd put it down, and pick it up a few minutes later and it would sometimes start. Now i'm afraid to use the trimmer because I don't want to ruin my expensive batteries. Very disappointed and feel ripped off.

This pole saw along with the extension makes cutting down branches, limbs, and small trees a breeze. No ladder and no struggling to start the engine, and no exhaust fumes... just the smell of fresh cut wood. It doesn't seem to eat the battery very quickly either. One negative is you can cut down quickly and not realize how much cleanup there is, and it it doesn't automatically help cleanup the fallen mess. However, it does help by cutting it up into smaller pieces for transport.

Life Simplified. Just wished it shipped with small..
JUST WISH IT SHIPPED WITH SMALL BOTTLE OF CHAIN OIL AND HEDGE TRIMMER LIGHT WEIGHT OIL. The pictures say it all. What is used to look like. To what it looks like after my new Milwaukee edger got a hold of it. Still have not tried the string trimmer, pole saw or the hedge trimmers. Do to, now having too go back to the store to buy some. I ordered this set online. Not thinking about needing oils. Being most items in the past have come with a starter bottle. I did purchase the blower separately and that was Nice and Light. I did also purchase a hight output 3.0 ahu extra battery as a back up. And to use with the pole saw.

Simply the Best String Trimmer and Edger Combo
These tool systems attracted me because I can change out the business end of the tool but only have the one motor and control unit to be concerned with. That saves storage space. In use the string trimmer is easy to load and a quick knock on the ground advances the string when necessary. The trimmer line is tough enough not to break too easily and it does a great job of cutting through grass, weeds and some woody material. Control at the trigger is very good. The edger is amazing and it cleans up the edges of the lawns very well. The 8.0 Ah battery still had half its power in reserve after string trimming and edging for about 50 minutes and walking about a half mile.

Awesome attachment
I got the pole saw attachment to help me with the tall trees in the yard. I wanted to raise the canopy because the trees were many years past due for a proper trim. The saw is very well made. It is professional grade in quality. Adjusting the chain is easy and the oil reservoir keeps the chain lubed. Also, it doesn't leak! As a unit, it works great with my 9a battery and did the job without needing a recharge. It cuts like a champ. I just let the weight of the saw do all the work and was done in no time.

This is an awesome trimmer! It replaces a Ryobi cordless unit which I now see was a total waste of money. I switched over to Milwaukee cordless tools a few years ago and it is awesome that alll of the tools run on the same battery packs. I must have a dozen batteries so I never run out of juice. I look forward to adding a couple of the other accessories that are available for this unit.

Very impressed. A must-have attachment!
Absolutely impressed with this attachment for the Quik-lok system. It made quick work of the hedges I needed to sculpt and was supremely easy to operate and reach extremely tall bushes I normally would need to get a ladder for. I had a ton of fun achieving high-end finished looks on my property without having to pay an arm and leg for it. Highly reccommend!

The trimmer exceeded expectations. Was very hesitant in buying it due to the price, but after biting the bullet and getting it, I will never go back to a gas powered trimmer ever again. No hassle, string loads easy breezy, quiet, battery life so far barely uses 1/4 of life on my whole yard that requires a good bit of trimming and edging. broke down and decided to get the edger and hedge trimmer attachments. If they work anything like the string trimmer, my yard will be the easiest its ever been. Now I just need Milwaukee to come out with an electric ride on lawn mower!
