Milwaukee is preparing to introduce a cordless hedge trimmer, string trimmer, and blower to their M18 line.
Milwaukee‘s 9.0 Ah battery is on the horizon, and with it will come tools that would not have been possible (or maybe just not very good) with their lower capacity batteries. In early 2017 you can expect to see a hedge trimmer, string trimmer, and outdoor blower all running on Milwaukee M18 batteries.
The M18 FUEL String Trimmer 2725-21HD features the Powerstate brushless motor and a solid drive shaft going all the way down the trimmer. This helps deliver the power, balance, and maneuverability required by professional landscapers. The M18 FUEL string trimmer has the power to clear thick brush, reached full throttle instantly and has unmatched runtime among cordless electric trimmers. It is extremely durable, and has less weight, vibration, and noise than gas string trimmers. This trimmer is designed to have the runtime, power, and performance to earn its place on a professional crew. It’s expected to be available in January of 2017 and Should be available for pre-order by November.
The M18 FUEL Blower 2728-21HD provides the best combinaiton of power and efficiency through an axial fan design. This blower has the power to clear lawn and jobsite debris and delivers the longest max CFM runtime among all cordless blowers currently on the market. THe cordless blower also delivers all of this while having less weight and vibration than a gas blower. This blower is significantly more powerful than the smaller, M18 shop blower already on the market. It should also be available for pre-order in November and purchase in January.
The M18 FUEL Hedge Trimmer 2726-21HD delivers more power under load, has an unmatched runtime, and has a zero maintenance motor.It has the power to cut thick branches, and it’s 24″ blade trims more material in a single pass, increasing reach and productivity. The M18 FUEL hedge trimmer also promises less weight, lower noise, and less vibration than its gas counterparts. Very few cordless hedge trimmers on the market are utilizing a brushless motor. The fact of the matter is, not a lot of cordless hedge trimmers are currently made to sthe heavy duty specifications that Milwaukee has us used to, and instead utilize a consumer design. The hedge trimmer is going to have a similar gear case to the FUEL Sawzall for extended, demanding use. The 2726-21HD will also be available for pre-order around November, and will ship early 2017.
You’ll be able to get these tools as soon as they are available at Ohio Power Tool, along with nearly any other M18 Cordless too they’ve come up with. If you have any questions you can reach them at 800.242.4424.
