Hi there! Battery run time depends on the application and how you use the tool. Both our M18 FUEL™ String Trimmer w/ QUIK-LOK™ (2825-20ST) and our M18 FUEL™ Blower (2724-20) have variable speed triggers and high/low speeds that will impact the run time of the battery.

what size bore is the blade?

Asked by steve June 14, 2021

Answer

It would take a long time to wear out a blade to a point that it needs to be changed. But if you do this tool uses the standard 2 X 8 with a 1" bore.

Hi there! Run time will vary depending on battery size and application. However, you will typically get a longer run time when using a larger amp hour M18 battery.

Very powerful, too much power actually
Not gonna lie I absolutely enjoy this tool but it has terrible cooling and it looks like Milwaukee tried to fix by adding more intake slots/holes but the fan is just a simple bi-directional fan and doesn’t move very much heat out of the motor. I’m pretty sure my hammer drill moves more air than this thing. When I use it as a pole saw, no problems with that works great. As a string trimmer it gets hot eventually and I have to run it without a load to cool it down but sometimes that doesn’t even work. Impressed what it can do but a redesign is necessary

Good trimmer
Works great for normal maintenance trimming. I tried some serious weed eating, it lasted 18 minutes on full charge 8.0 battery, 8 minutes on full charge 5.0 battery. Only reason didn’t give a 5 rating is a throttle lock would be nice and strap should come with it and not be an option.

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.

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.

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!

In turtle mode it works really well, saves the battery and is strong enough to cut normal trimming. In Rabbit mode it is more powerful than my high end gas trimmers. I have gotten rid of my gas trimmer because this one is so much better. One battery will last for my entire house and the second battery will cover everything else.

Great system...
Well built, solid performance... I bought this on special from Home Depot. The power is comparable to my gas powered trimmer. The QuikLok attaches well, but occasionally I can’t get the attachment completely into the power head. A little wiggle or spin of the motor fixes that. You can turn the string cutter around to get the string swath diameter up from 14 to 16 inches. At first, the trimmer had a bad vibration, and I found it was due to the string in the head. It must have compacted in an unbalanced way. Rewinding it with new string made it smooth out. It trims grass as expected, no issues. I used the pole saw attachment on a number of trees and removed branches up to about 4 inches in diameter without any problems. I used a 3Ah HO battery for weight considerations instead of the big HO 8Ah battery that came with the kit. After multiple branches it brought the battery down a couple of bars. All in all an excellent system for my outdoor needs. I think they should include the strap with the kit. Oddly, it was included in the folding hedge trimmer attachment I ordered later.

Great combo I used it with the 12.0 battery got 2hrs of run time with trimmer. Haven’t used the chainsaw attachment yet. However, the edger and hedge trimmer works flawless as well. I’m very pleased with the quality and diversity of this set and it’s quite. No more gasoline just slap a new battery and keep it going. Time is money and to me this has been money well spent.
