Milwaukee M18 Trimmer and Blower


So these two followed me home from the big orange store last night.



I put them to work today on the yard. I live at the end of a Cul De Sac so my lot is fairly large and pie shaped. I have over 400' of privacy fence to trim as well as around the house, trees, driveway, deck, and grandkid yard play sets.

It took me a little less than an hour to trim, edge and blow away the cuttings. I still had 2 bars out of 4 left on the 9.0 AH battery when I was done.

The trimmer has two speed settings, I kept it on high the whole time. It had plenty of power for anything you would encounter in a normal yard. It cut tall crabgrass like a champ.

The blower worked great and made short work of the clippings.

I think I'll add a harness clip to it, while I don't have to have it, by the end my arm was getting tired.

If anyone is on the fence on the this trimmer, consider me a Buy vote.

Re: Milwaukee M18 Trimmer and Blower


I am so tempted to buy a cordless blower. I do volunteer work for our local trail system and one of my jobs is blowing off leaves, debris, etc. from the parking lot. The guy at HD showed me the merits of one of the brands (green in color) and I was impressed but the price scared me away.......for now.

Re: Milwaukee M18 Trimmer and Blower


Looking at a combo set just like this. So far have read about Ryobi 18v and 40v and Ego and Echo. I need to use the trimmer for edging too which I guess is a learned skill?? And the blower needs to have a low power setting too for simple things like cleaning out the garage floor. Is this suitable do you think?

I love mine. The blower on the Milwaukee has a variable speed trigger so you can go strong or light with the airflow.
