          Awesome tool with lots of power!
          Awesome tool with lots of power. I used this torque wrench to install 1/2” concrete anchors for a foundation wall steel reinforcement system. This impact wrench effortlessly drove the anchors into the pilot holes in concrete.

            Good blower not perfect if you have small yard it works for clean up blowing large leaf fine smaller like inch in size of in grass not so great Got this blower because have Extra Batteries 18 v 8 amps those lasted 20 minutes blowing and drain out takes 2 hours charged back Unit is heavy have to change hands 10 minutes blowing No shouldered straps. If you buying without batteries price could be cheaper if you need batteries price to much Better blower out there for that price prefer back pack models electric or gas. Lots reviews and test scores on Milwaukee blowers to compare personally using echo backpack gas blower so I’m spoiled takes weigh off your arms

            The power of a gas blower with faster trigger response
            I've had my share of yard blowers; both gas and battery-powered and in both hand-held and backpack (gas only). I have about an acre of yard with a lot of sidewalk/driveway in the front. My gas backpack eventually wore out and I've been using another brand of battery-powered hand-held. It does OK but really lacks the power I had with a gas-powered version. I already own a number of Milwaukee cordless power tools and have been very pleased with the brand. I also have the Milwaukee 18-volt cordless weedeater and it has been doing a great job for the last 2 years so I felt this new Milwaukee blower would be worth a try. I'm glad I did! Everything about Milwaukee is well thought out - no surprise there. The blower tube and nozzles actually latch on. No chasing after a knocked off nozzle. Even though it takes TWO M18 batteries to power the blower, the blower is very well balanced with my 2) XC 6.0ah batteries plugged in. I was expecting the blower to be on the heavy side with the pair of 6.0ah batteries but it surprisingly wasn't. The operation of the blower easily surpasses any yard blower I've used. First, there is the large trigger; it is easy to squeeze the trigger with two fingers - this for me provides great balance and control. Although the trigger is very responsive and easy to operate with just my index finger, I found it more comfortable to use two fingers. Then the awesome feature of the variable speed, trigger slide control. I've had blowers with trigger locks that locks the trigger in at maximum output, but Milwaukee designed this blower with a slide lock; just move the slider to the speed/output desired - that's it! I didn't really know how much I would use that feature but it turns out that I use it a lot. The trigger response from a dead stop is immediate, definitely faster than my gas blower which was fairly responsive. Blower's performance is awesome. I use the tapered nozzle for blowing grass clippings from the driveway and sidewalk and clear the leaves from our patio with the flat nozzle. The blower noise is much, much lower than gas and a little less than my other brand battery-powered blower, very tolerable. Now for the batteries; yes, you need 2) M18 batteries, and they should be matched amp-hour sized and both fully charged. You can use differing amp-hour sizes, however, the lower size battery will deplete sooner and when one of the batteries runs out, the blower will not run regardless of the charge remaining in the one battery. This is a 36-volt blower and needs both 18-volt batteries to work. My XC6.0ah batteries lasted about 50 minutes of mostly constant high-speed blowing. The blower's fuel gauge appears to accurately reflect the XC fuel gauge. I am very pleased with the Milwaukee blower. Milwaukee did a great job in the design.

            Milwaukee Does It Again
            This Milwaukee M18 FUEL Dual Battery 145 MPH 600 CFM 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Handheld Blower provides gas-powered blower performance or better with so much more convenience. The machine is well balanced and easy to use. The electronically controlled constant power output is great and combined with the top mounted slide switch to select a rate is really nice. Of course, variable output using the trigger is always available. I have a good assortment of high output M18 batteries associated with my other Milwaukee tools and found that using 6 AH batteries makes for a nice balance between run time and weight although 8 AH batteries or higher are recommended. Having extra batteries helps if the job is going to take more than about 20 minutes. The 4-light fuel (charge) indicator is easy to see during use and is helpful in assessing remaining run time. The nozzle attachments are typical Milwaukee quality with latches instead of the usual difficult push in and twist arrangement. For many homeowners this is all the blower they will need. I have a large yard bordered by woods and will still use the gas-powered backpack blower in the fall. However, this machine will really help simplify blowing the spring leaf development debris as well as fall leaves from behind the foundation plantings, around the patio, pool area and driveway where the backpack is overkill or awkward to use. Like my other Milwaukee tools, it is a really nice heavy-duty machine.

            Bye bye gas powered blower!
            I got this blower (bare tool only) primarily to clear leaves and other debris from the lawn, patio, walks, and driveway. Since I’m already invested in the M18 platform and have lots of batteries I can keep it running for days. It requires two batteries to operate and I’ve found run time decent when using two 6.0 Ah high output batteries. I really like the variable speed trigger lock off switch, which allows for easy selection of the appropriate amount of air for any job. Lower levels are good for removing leaves from mulched flowerbeds without blowing away the mulch. Higher speeds are good for wet leaves and moving mulch back from the edge of flowerbeds to prevent the weedwacker from kicking it into the yard. And unlike any other battery blower I have (and I have 2 other brands), this blower’s lowest setting is comparable to the idle of a gas powered blower. Most folks won’t care about “idling;” however, if you’ve ever put down pavers and filled the gaps with polymeric sand, you know it requires a gas powered blower on idle to adjust the depth of the sand to 1/8” below the top of the pavers. This Milwaukee blower can do it too! Something to keep in mind is that the tool requires two batteries to run. That’s unfortunate, but I get it. Two batteries not only helps balance the tool, but also provides for longer run time and more consistent power. Unfortunately the added weight of two 6 Ah or higher high-output batteries makes this tool heavy (bare tool is ~6 lbs) and a bit bulky. After five minutes I have to change hands because it fatigues my wrists and forearms just like my gas powered handheld. It also has some kickback upon gunning it at startup. The marketing and specifications say this tool is “optimized for high output batteries,” and it seems to be the case unless I’m imagining it. I used two XC 5.0 Ah batteries and the bright, operator-facing, FUEL gauge, which is helpful but rather overdone, seemed to drop quicker than when using high output batteries. And while high output batteries didn’t seem to affect the air speed or power, they prolong run time. This blower boasts air speeds up to 145 MPH, which is only 5 MPH less than my handheld gas powered blower… and it’s significantly quieter (64 db(A) but still loud enough for earplugs. And while the 600 CFM is an impressive specification, I find MPH a more helpful measurement for comparison. For example, my gas powered handheld blower is rated 400 CFM, but blows up to150 MPH while my backpack blower is rated 434 CFM and blows up to 251 MPH. So CFM can be misleading in my opinion. Either way, I can confidently retire my gas powered handheld. I’d surmise this model is a quieter and perhaps greener option that would please professional landscapers too. For most DIYers or folks with small yards, this model might be overkill, in which case Milwaukee’s 2724-20 blower might be more economical and less cumbersome. The two included nozzles (flat and tapered) snap on nice and tight, which I appreciate, although most of the time I won’t use them. There’s a small hanging hole on the underside of the blower so it can be hung on a screw in the workshop, which is great because that’s how I like to hang my blowers. One thing I was surprised about is that the warranty is only 3 years versus the standard 5 year power tool warranty. I’m not concerned given how reliable my Milwaukee tools have been, but still worth pointing out. Overall another nice Milwaukee tool!

            I use this blower both for yardwork and to dry off my vehicles after washing them. This new M18 dual battery blower is noticeably more powerful than the M18 single battery blower. I also purchased a "stubby car drying nozzle" I found on Etsy that I use with the blower and together they do an amazing job! I highly recommend both products.

              Great power, but at great cost
              I gather this has been a long-awaited product for fans of the Milwaukee FUEL lineup, and Milwaukee likely put a lot of time into trying to get it perfect. So let me be as detailed as possible in my review. As background, I've used two models from the big competing brand (let's call it green power), and Milwaukee was clearly trying to beat it. In many ways it has, but it required one awkward step: equipping the blower with dual batteries. It will not work with one, because frankly, 18V wouldn't be enough for a high-end blower. Therefore, it's set up to use two batteries in series for a total of 36V. First, the positive: the power is extraordinary, and Milwaukee isn't kidding when it says this will spin up in under one second. Once you've felt the difference, you just can't go back. Being able to move leaves at your feet immediately, and then move on without breaking stride is incredible. The spool up time on my old green model was simply unbearable once I'd tried the Milwaukee. The issue is battery life: while the marketing photos show the unit being used with dual 8.0 high output batteries, most people will probably be using their XC 5.0 batteries from screwdrivers and the like. These batteries have the power to create serious airflow when paired up because they have the same voltage as the bigger models, but there's no getting around their small size. The runtime is pretty disappointing. For illustration purposes: I started my leaf blowing session at 8:27am with freshly-charged 5.0 batteries, and by 8:42, the unit was flashing red to signal dead batteries. I was using max power most of the time, but not the entire time. So that's 15 minutes for a typical session. With the 8.0 series batteries, I imagine this would stretch to 25 minutes, but it's still awkward when you consider that charging them up again to return to the job requires either two chargers, or waiting for each battery to charge in turn (which takes about 30 minutes with the 5.0 batteries on the Milwaukee Rapid Charger). Now one other thing that merits an explanation is the controls. This is very innovative, and shows that Milwaukee is trying to anticipate how people actually use their equipment. There's no "hi/lo" switch or something silly like that. Instead, there's just a proportional trigger (pull a little for a little airflow, pull some more and it ramps up smoothly depending on how far you pull it). But Milwaukee also gives you the top thumb button. This physically locks in a particular trigger pull (literally, it moves the trigger), meaning you can set it at 25%, 50%, 100% or anything you want, and you can now just use the blower without holding anything but the handle (or handles, as there are two). This is great for overhead work (blowing off a roof), where you might need to hold the blower in such a way that you can't reach the trigger. It's also great for relaxing your hand a bit if you want a consistent level of power for a number of minutes. So, overall, this is a great product, but in addition to the battery life problem, there is the battery price problem. Unless you already have a matching pair of Milwaukee batteries (5.0 or up), you are going to quickly find that the total package price of this blower is way, way above the competition. So, who's this for? Anyone who has a good collection of Milwaukee batteries and wants what is probably the best-designed leaf blower on the market, and is willing to trade runtime for extreme power and instant-on functionality.

              Milwaukee's Professional Grade Cordless Blower
              Milwaukee M18 FUEL Dual Battery 145 MPH 600 CFM 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Handheld Blower (Tool-Only) This brand new M18 FUEL blower from Milwaukee is a great choice, especially if you already have other Milwaukee tools and have two M18 batteries. This “tool only” unit comes with two different nozzles, but no charger or batteries are included. It will not operate with just one battery, I tried it, you must have two. I tested the noise level outside at full throttle 2 ft. away with the NIOSH app on my iPhone and it was 95-96db. Milwaukee tested it at 64db, I’m not sure how they got that number. 64db is a normal human conversation level and it’s much louder than that on full power. I guess they test under different conditions and with better equipment? Anyway, it is still quieter than a gas blower and puts the noise level about the same as my other well-known brand cordless blower of similar power. I did prefer the round nozzle attachment, the flat one caused a slight high-pitched sound that became irritating to my ears, but since I usually would be wear hearing protection while using it, not an issue. I like to switch hands side to side while using a blower and I really like the ambidextrous slider control with constant on at any speed, the trigger is also easy to use and comfortable for instant variable control. My current blower pinches my index finger every time I pull the trigger without my gloves on, but this one never does. This Milwaukee is my go-to favorite now. With the batteries installed the unit is nicely balanced for comfort while using it. With the trouble-free Powerstate brushless motor, I pull the trigger and in 1 second this blower delivers 600 CFM/145 MPH. I had no trouble blowing everything in my path with this blower. This is suitable for commercial lawn care professionals (or homeowners) needing the full power of a gasoline blower, but using cordless battery power instead. Milwaukee states “The blower requires (2) M18 REDLITHIUM Batteries for operation and is optimized to be used with M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT batteries. The M18 FUEL Dual Battery Blower is part of the M18 System”.

              Excellent battery powered blower
              This blower has excellent power and is not too heavy to use handheld. It's not as powerful as the heavy duty 2-cycle backpack blowers but is on par with smaller backpack or plug-in blowers. Since it's non-polluting and doesn't need a cord, it's a clear winner! I used 2 5Ah XC batteries for most of my evaluation. With the blower at max power, the batteries lasted about 25 min. I also tried larger batteries (6&8 Ah). I only have one of each so I did not evaluate run time but weight wise, they were not an issue. I really like the slide speed control which makes it easy to maintain any blower speed desired. Remaining battery power by red lights in front of the slide switch which is easier than checking the batteries themselves. IF you plan to use this constantly, you'll need an extra set of batteries and a couple of Rapid chargers. The rapid charger recharges a battery in about the time it takes for one to discharge but for cleanup after mowing, you are probably fine with one set. Great addition to the M18 FUEL family.
