Handheld Grounds Attachment Line Expands

Milwaukee Tool continues to expand its growing line of outdoor power equipment solutions with the versatile QUIK-LOK Attachment System. The new system is made up of multiple attachments including a string trimmer, edger, pole saw, and hedge trimmer. For the versatility to complete a wide range of applications, users can swap between attachments for use on the M18 FUEL Power Head. Powered by M18 FUEL, the QUIK-LOK Attachment System utilizes the most advanced cordless technology to deliver best-in-class power and run-time for landscaping and trade professionals. The System also achieves instantaneous throttle response while being up to 2 pounds lighter than the other options on the market.

“Attachment systems are not a new concept, but what makes QUIK-LOK so remarkable is that, through our advanced M18 FUEL cordless technology, we’re able to deliver a versatile solution that not only achieves instant throttle response for more control, but it’s also fully compatible with the M18 System which offers more than 180 other solutions. Plus, the ability to switch out multiple attachments based on the application will make jobs quicker, easier, and more cost-effective,” said Andrew Lentz, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “This is a huge breakthrough for users who are frustrated with gas solutions or investing in multiple battery platforms to use higher voltage options.”

Users can enter the QUIK-LOK Attachment System through the M18 FUEL String Trimmer w/ QUIK-LOK or M18 FUEL 10” Pole Saw w/ QUIK-LOK. Once installed in the QUIK-LOK Attachment System, users can easily add on any additional attachments they need, when they need them.

M18 FUEL String Trimmer w/ QUIK-LOK (also available as attachment)
With increased power over Milwaukee’s original M18 FUEL String Trimmer, the M18 FUEL String Trimmer w/ QUIK-LOK has the power to clear thick brush, reaches full throttle in under 1 second, and provides up to 1 hour of run-time per charge. An adjustable 14” cutting swath maximizes run-time and offers ample power for grass trimming, while a 16” cutting swath maximizes clearing power and clearing capacity to trim more grass in a single pass, increasing productivity. Additionally, the Easy Load Trimmer Head provides a quick line-loading experience in under 30 seconds.

M18 FUEL 10” Pole Saw w/ QUIK-LOK (also available as attachment)
Optimized for tasks that require extended reach, the M18 FUEL 10” Pole Saw w/ QUIK-LOK has the power to cut hardwoods, reaches full throttle in under one second, and provides up to 150 cuts per charge. Capable of delivering up to 4,600 RPM, the pole saw has a 10” Oregon bar and chain which delivers smooth and fast cuts with minimal kickback. Additionally, the pole saw has an automatic oiler for proper chain lubrication, an easy access chain tensioner for quick adjustments, and a branch hook for extra cutting leverage and branch removal. A 3’ Attachment Extension is included for applications requiring even further reach.

M18 FUEL QUIK-LOK Edger Attachment
Designed with an 8" blade and adjustable wheel for optimal control of blade depth and tool angle, the M18 FUEL QUIK-LOK Edger Attachment is ideal for creating a clean line of separation between vegetation and hard surfaces. Delivering 3,900 RPM, the Edger Attachment is built with optimized gearing to help maintain speed during demanding applications without bogging down. Due to its close contact with concrete, this attachment is also built with a high-strength metal alloy guard and skid plate to protect the gear box. In addition, mud flaps help prevent dirt and debris kick-back.

M18 FUEL QUIK-LOK Articulating Hedge Trimmer Attachment
Designed with an articulating mechanism, the M18 FUEL QUIK-LOK Articulating Hedge Trimmer Attachment allows 270 degrees of rotation for the ability to trim in different orientations. Its 20” blade trims more material in a single pass, increasing reach and productivity, and it has a cut capacity of 1”. Additionally, the hedge trimmer includes a tip guard to prevent damage to the blade and surrounding work area. An optional 3’ Attachment Extension will also be available for applications requiring further reach.

From landscaping professionals to trade professionals, 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. These new tools are fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 180 power tool products.
