    Answer This Question

    A:  No lube needed. Can use wd-40 cto clean if needed

    by|Aug 16, 2023

      A:  Andrew, you can use 3 in 1 oil or SAE20 oil to lubricate the blades of a hedge trimmer. Any grade engine oil will work well. Give them an oiling every 30 minutes or use, before, and after use.

          Fell Apart
          Used maybe five-six times, now just out of warranty, falls apart at the angle adjustment, now its missing a "gear alignment pin" (looks like ~5mm screw) holding the gears together and the cutter on a trimmer with a 1inch cut, really bad design. I will say it did work good before it fell apart but if I used this professionally it wouldn't last a day.

            Cuts job time in half
            I should’ve bought this long time ago! Makes your job much easier than having to use a ladder and extension cords. Cuts hedges without any problems and reaches way above head level. It is quiet heavy even with the shoulder strap. I found my arms getting tired halfway through the job. I wish the head was able to rotate so you don’t have to adjust your grips for certain angles.

              Pleased with purchase!
              Easy to attach, easy to operate. Heavy duty construction. Doesnt eat up batteries surprisingly. Cuts clean and effortlessly. Very pleased, looking to purchase pole saw now!

              Out performs gas hedge trimmers
              This is a fantastic addition to the Milwaukee Quik-Lok line and a must have if you have hedging or bushes which require pruning. The attachment is solidly built and looks and feels like a quality product. It comes well packaged and a shoulder strap is in included in the box. The hedge trimmer attachment has an articulating head which swivels though 270 degrees and has 13 locking positions as well as a storage position. The included blade cover is of quality construction and the blades are very sharp and well lubricated. The attachment is easily and quickly mounted on the power head and runs smoothly and quietly with batteries lasting a surprisingly long time. Optional extension poles are available though this would add weight and make the whole assembly more difficult to maneuver. I have found that this trimmer outperforms the Stihl Kombi articulating hedge trimmer I had previously used with the added bonus of a quieter running, exhaust free motor.

                Purchased for trail maintenance work
                Tough work for an electric tool. 1" claimed cut capacity is too abusive, a consistent 1/3 of an inch continuous load is doable with occasional larger cuts. Can "Chew" through larger stuff if desired. Dry & dead hardwood is too abusive and will stop the tool. On the first day, I cleared over 1000lbs of green material and poison oak, for which it excels! Excellent battery life on low power mode which is plenty. 7 batteries over 7 hours of work. Move handle to front shaft. - Chuck the strap

                  Heavy but gets the job done!!
                  Another great addition to Milwaukee’s FUEL Quik-Lok system. This hedge trimmer attachment is a great alternative to using gas powered hedge trimmers, and even though it is cordless it performs as well as a gas hedge trimmer. No more dealing with gas fumes or having to gas available in a gas can. This hedge trimmer attachment has the ability to rotate 270 degrees in 13 set operating positions which allows for you to adjust the hedge trimmer to help you shape the hedge to your liking. Cutting the top of the hedge is easy with this rotating option if your hedge is really tall. There is a padded grip on the attachment for greater comfort on your hands. The blade length is 20” and the maximum cut capacity is 1”. The hedge trimmer attachment weights 5.8 lbs. I got rid of my gas powered hedge trimmer once this came out. Be mindful that the hedge trimmer attachment plus the power base plus the battery is heavy. I highly recommend buying the Milwaukee Should Strap (49-16-2722) to help with the overall weight. It is easy to balance the tool well if you place the shoulder strap in the ideal location. The rotating head is great to make using the hedge trimmer comfortable. Because of the overall weight, if it wasn’t for the rotating head, the tool would be hard to manage. I have hedges that are higher than 10’ so being able to create a 90 degree angle with the hedge trimmer allows for me to get a nice flat top without having to go up and down a ladder. The tool will take some getting used to but overall I think it’s a hit for Milwaukee’s first generation of outdoor power tools!!

                    Broke in less than 10 minutes
                    I love Milwaukee. Great tools and this had great reviews. Hoping I got a dud. Started using it after the regular hedge trimmers which worked ok. Lacked some power but did the job. These were amazing until it stopped cutting in less than 10 minutes. Thought the extensions might not be tight. Finally saw the head was coming apart on first use. Kept pushing it back together and finally it just fell in half LITERALLY. Thank goodness I was able to get the tall tall stuff before it fell apart.

                      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!

                        It was quite and trimmed several bushes without any issues. Very sharp blades. The ability to change the angles was very convenient also.

                        I had two issues with this hedge trimmer: First, the power head doesn't have the power to take advantage of the 1" cut capacity. It bogs down in heavy grass, and stalls on dead branches (although does better on green branches). The second issue is that the provided strap is garbage. I'm pretty tall, but if I adjust it all the way out the trimmer would be hanging at the ground. As a result, most of the strap is doubled back, which makes adjustments difficult. Additionally, the strap webbing falls to the side of the thin metal rectangular loop where it doubles back, which pulls that metal loop out of alignment and then it just falls off. Much cussing ensued each time it happened, and I replaced it with an ego strap.
