Milwaukee® Disrupts the Industry with The Most Powerful String Trimmer

MILWAUKEE, WI – Delivering disruptive innovation for the professional landscape industry, Milwaukee Tool introduces the new M18 FUEL™ 17” Dual Battery String Trimmer, the most powerful string trimmer on the market. Meeting the performance, durability, and ergonomic needs of landscape maintenance professionals, this 17” string trimmer provides the most power among all battery and gas competitors, the fastest clearing speed, and the capability to reach full throttle in under one second.

“Our new M18 FUEL™ 17” Dual Battery String Trimmer stands as an example of Milwaukee’s commitment to designing innovative, user-focused solutions to increase operator productivity,” explains Tony Buxton, Director of Product Management for Milwaukee Tool. “Through countless hours working alongside professionals on the job, we understand the demanding requirements of the professional landscaper and have worked to drive productivity on the properties they maintain. Leveraging our leadership in batteries, motors, and electronics, combined with a user-focused approach, we are transforming the industry’s expectations for the performance a battery-powered string trimmer can deliver."

The M18 FUEL™ 17” Dual Battery String Trimmer delivers the most peak torque when compared to leading professional gas and battery string trimmers. Leveraging a POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, operators are provided with up to 2.5 Nm of torque and 2.4 HP while being able to maintain RPM in the most demanding applications without bogging down or impacting productivity. Designed with a professionally demanded feature set, from the 17” cutting swath to the durable fixed shaft design, this M18 FUEL™ String Trimmer delivers powerful performance that exceeds both 35cc gas-powered and higher voltage battery-operated alternatives.

Maintaining this power throughout an application, Milwaukee’s new Dual Battery String Trimmer provides professionals with the fastest clearing solution in the landscaping industry. With the ability to cut through the most difficult applications while sustaining the highest string speed, maximum productivity is delivered, helping operators get more done.

REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence allows the Milwaukee String Trimmer reaches full throttle in under one second, increasing control and productivity in the application. Eliminating the common frustrations associated with gas string trimmers, such as pull starts, engine maintenance, and the mixing of gas and oil, this battery-operated string trimmer stands as a full replacement for gas-powered solutions. To meet performance expectations in certain high-demand applications while upholding system compatibility, this string trimmer requires the simultaneous use of two M18™ REDLITHIUM™ batteries**.

Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day's work on one battery system. The M18 FUEL™ 17” Dual Battery String Trimmer is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 250 solutions.

*M18 FUEL™ is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, all M18 FUEL™ products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations—The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software—that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M18 FUEL™ tools are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.
