      Q:Are M18and M18 Fuel batteries interchangeable?
      by|Sep 6, 2022
      5 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi John- all M18 battery packs are interchangeable with all M18 tools. Within our battery systems, some tools have advanced technology which we call FUEL. The three components that make a tool FUEL are a Powerstate Brushless Motor, Redlink Plus Intelligence, and Redlithium batteries. FUEL products are engineered for the most demanding trades in the world. You’ll know a FUEL product when you see the FUEL symbol on the package.

      by|Sep 9, 2022

        A:  I use standard m18 batteries in mine. From what I understood fuel tools used brushless motors for more power and better efficiency. I didn’t realize Milwaukee was making fuel batteries as well. 

        by|Sep 11, 2022

          A:  Yes, the batteries themselves will operated in any m18 Milwaukee products. Fuel refers to a higher performance line of tool. Typically more torque and power. The batteries are the same across both fuel and non fuel tools. 

          by|Sep 11, 2022

            A:  Yes

            by|Sep 11, 2022

              A:  Yes, absolutely.

                A:  Consistant running at full throttle I can get about 25 minutes.    Just normal weedeating I can do my 1/4+ acre yard 2 times.  

                by|Aug 28, 2022

                  A:  Mine last about 30-45 minutes. I have a 1/3 AC. Corner lot and is enough power to weed and edge front and back including fence line 

                  by|Sep 4, 2022

                    A:  As long as it is normal weedeating it last along time but if you wait till they are thick you will chew up som battery

                        Overall good, but black handle doesn't tighten
                        Over all this has been a great system. My only complaint is the main black handle has a crack in it preventing it from tightening on the shaft.

                          String trimmer
                          While I loved the product at first, the trimmer has begun to overheat and damage several of my batteries. This happened after the first time I used said trimmer to do normal daily yard work. I love the idea of being able to switch attachments to handle different types of yard work but it's a big letdown when the product stops working and starts damaging your batteries.

                            Falls way short!
                            I own several Milwaukee power tools and have been happy with their performance. I decided to purchase the brushless string trimmer instead of a gas weed eater because I already owned multiple batteries. VERY disappointed after several months of ownership, the trimmer will run for a few minutes, overheat and stop; head has also worn out after only a few months, common issues! Glad I didn't invest in the other attachments as I was planning on doing.

                              Mixed Feelings - I think it is melting my battery
                              I love the trimmer. Weight, power and performance is as good as my heavier gas trimmer. My issue is that it has melted the terminals on a 12 and 5 aH battery. One battery is 6 months out of warranty. The other has a month left. I’m afraid to use it again with a $300 battery at risk.

                                this string trimmer is damaged the batteries
                                I'm a big fan of Milwaukee tools. This is the first tool I have purchased and I am really disappointed. I see that you write to customers who complain that you will contact them by email. I hope you have a solution to this problem. The string trimmer destroys the batteries. Using an average of 40 minutes of work, the battery heats up And the left cell is damaged.

                                  Love my Milwaukee collection but this falls short
                                  I have about 1 hour of trimming on my property weekly. Typical stuff , edging around walls and drives, trees, buildings etc. After about 15 minutes of uses it kicks in and out. I assume it’s overheating.

                                      Way better than I anticipated. Replaced a commercial gas trimmer with this to test it's feasibility for commercial use. I admit the battery life being the biggest factor tho. Just find a way to charge on the fly. But I already had that in place. Quality is solid, and I find my myself taking care of this a little better than the old, due to it being a power tool.

                                      Hold off until they update the head.
                                      Love the trimmer and attachments but hate the head, it’s so flimsy it broke after about 4 uses of residential use with light grass.
