Stanley Genadek Milwaukee Tool Expo:

We do a lot of landscaping and shrub trimming in ornamental tree trimming and I’m convinced that these new hedge trimmers from Milwaukee tool are going to permanently replace our gas powered hedge shears for normal everyday use

Mario Navarro says:

bro!! where’s the ear protection!? what’s the point of making a million if half of it will go back into medical bills

M Murph says:

still holding up? been thinking about adding one of these.

Paul L says:

I’m getting me self that tool yaaaaaa. Getting a 130 foot hedge installed in 2 weeks. Thanks for the vid.

BL0HARD says:

This guy doesn’t know what he is talking about. The 5.0Ah battery isn’t defined as the battery used for flash lights, it’s the battery the powers every Milwaukee 18v tool like drills, impact drivers, rotary hammers, cable crimpers, angle grinders, torches and dozens of other tools. Did he notice the 9.0Ah battery is a high demand battery that is intended to be used in Milwaukee high demand 18v tools like the hedge trimmer, whipper snipper, mitre saw, blower and large rotary hammer drill. I’m guessing the hedge trimmer didn’t feel down on power because his 18V 5.0Ah battery was going flat since Lithium battery powered tools don’t fade when they are going flat but just stop. Instead because he never bothered to charge the 18V 9.0Ah battery which would have allowed the tool to have more power. (I didn’t realise this until watching a review on impact drivers that having a battery with more amp hours gives more power not just run time over batteries with less amp hours even though the voltages are the same). The smaller port on the charger is for Milwaukee M12 batteries not to charge flashlights????? (unless you have a M12 flashlight…)

hey keith, can u show how it cuts pampas grass when you get the chance?

Art ocha says:

how thick of a branch can you cut with that?

Rydal1 says:

nice drop test mate, does it last more than one bush?

WH says:

Thanks much.  I think you just sold me on them.  I haven’t been asked to trim a hedge yet but can see it coming . Got and hedge trimming , instructional videos to recommend ?  I think I get the jest just by watching but if you have any pointers I’m all ears , err well , eyes in this case !  LOL..    Thanks !

The Lawn Care Nut says:

$300 for the tool + Battery seems excessive! I’ll take gas-powered all day long at that price point and use it to slice through thick branch hedge rows. Seeing the Milwauk on Taxus yews isn’t really much of a test either to be honest. I do find it interesting that these “contractor grade” battery tools are coming out now. I’ll call it now and say they never really gain wide-spread acceptance as replacements for gas trimmers but do find small niche markets in areas where noise is a factor or accessibility. Still, I think these companies are making a mistake leaving behind the homeowner segment by overpricing themselves. Time will tell. Lastly – is it ok to admit I was hoping for some cut-up finger action?

bhepp344 says:

So can the Milwaukee last enough to do a entire house? Can they hold up to heavy commercial use? Is the cut as nice as stihl? I like the hs 56-c. The hs 45 is nice but I’ve gone threw a bunch of um. 169$ is much better then $300+. I’m just looking for a professionals opinion. Thanks!

Draden Moore says:

They believe in you

HeY LisTeN says:

??? reupload?? buy why?? WHYYYY?!?!?!?!? lol i thought it was a new vid =/

Sams Lawncare says:

hey keith I’ve been doing landscaping for 5 years about now I got my license and I’ve been going out every week with flyers and it’s paying off I’m getting enormous jobs for at least me and what I’m used to but I just got a big job and in the clients back yard she wants to extend it but she has so much brush and wants it removed should I charge hourly for the brush or should I give her a set price for the area cut its not enormous probably 30 feet by 30 and the brush is about 2 to 3 inches high ?

Maui Landscape & Lawn says:

jmalczak says:

Tony's Lawn care says:

great vid still liking em?

Luis Millan says:

very good machine just cut my finger with mine

Jake C says:

I’m from the uk mate and I have both the same hedge trimmers as you showed in the video, I found the same thing, it was less strain on your arms and shoulders, if you haven’t already give them a go on a ladder and you’ll really see the difference, but truthfully i know the stihl has a much cleaner cut, loving the vids mate

Exquisite Lawn Service says:

it doesn’t make enough noise! lol I think Id loose business you’d do a hedge trimming job and the neighbors would never even know you were there! haha I mean think how many times a neighbor comes out and says hey when you get done here can you do this or that and how much?….ok let’s go ahead

em forty says:
