Can this be operated with one hand? I have to stretch to reach the tops of some shaped topiary and i wont be able to reach with a two handed grip.

No, it's fairly heavy and most people would definitely need two hands. The owners manual says you must use both hands.

Never going corded again
Love finally owning a cordless hedge trimmer after years of slicing extension cords. Has plenty of power but is also a little heavy. Well worth it if you can handle the heft!

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.

Forget the gas, pop a battery and go for hours
I was reluctant to buy a battery powered garden implement as I figured it’d be tough to be gas powered tools, but decided to try it due to the fact I own a few other milwaukee tools and every single one is smash hit. First time I used it I put on a 5.0 battery and trimmed thick branches And light branches for a few hours and barely used one battery bar. I’m extremely impressed and the ease of just putting in a battery and going, it makes this the go to trimmer. No more searching for two stroke fuel or having to mix, or purchase more. Take the battery out of the impact, light or drill and trim a large size yard. I have used this multiple times and can find nothing wrong. I have a couple acres and this handles it no problem. 10/10 recommend.

Yes I love all my Milwaukee tools
Great power and good battery life just like all my M18 tools. Also very sharp if it fits in the slot it cuts it.
by Stranks
WHAT HAS MILWAUKEE DONE!
Milwaukee has effectively made my extension cords useless! No more cutting my power cords in half while trimming. No more taking time to set up and extent the power cords before I trim! I can literally JUST START TRIMMING! A ton of power! A 5ah battery lasts forever. Sharper then my ex wife's tongue! You just can't go wrong with this thing, it's great! The only reason for 4/5 stars is the weight. Mind you, it's not bad. It's just heavier then my old corded HedgeHog trimmer.

What a Beast of a Hedge Trimmer
Maneuvers easily enough to trim my DrSuess Bonsai with speed and precision. Long sharp blade and powerful motor makes trimming fun and productive. Another great M18 product from Milwaukee.
