Love the trimmer hate the head
My trimmer head wore out in less then one season of use and now my options for replacement are poor to none. What a waste and shame for such a great piece of equipment to fail because of one poorly designed piece, the trimmer head cover.

It just doesn't work. It doesn't bump feed at all. The line just jams up as it winds into the head. Makes the otherwise great trimmer pretty awful. It also is pretty thin and fliexible plastic. Milwaukee please make this right!

The worst trimmer head
The trimmer is excellent and the trimmer head is the worst i have ever used. The hedge trimmer and edging attachment both work fine but the trimmer head spends more time jammed and being disassembled and reloaded than it does cutting grass. Looking for a recommendation on a replacement

TERRIBLE Head design!!!
I have spent a lot of money on Milwaukee tools and love them but I wish I had read these reviews before buying this. In only 3 months I need to replace the head. I only use this trimmer for my own home and that's once a week so I've used it between 12-15 times. I have a 1/3 acre fenced lot and the fact that this head needs to be replaced already is very upsetting. What is even more upsetting is how much the replacement head will cost. I really don't know what I am going to do. I can't afford to be replacing this head every few months after paying close to $200 for the tool to begin with.
Milwaukee, you really let me down.

Awsome trimer, but with a big problem
What have you done Milwaukee? you have so much nice tools but this time you failed bad

The trimmer itself impressed me with more power and running time than I expected.
But it wasn't long before the trimmer head started failing.It stopped feeding the line and i have to take it apart an clean it everytime i use it.
got it about a year ago, this is not good enough

i would recomend this if the head was as god, as the trimmer is awesome!

Broke original head, this is replacement
Is the original bump-feed head that came with my string trimmer still available? This replacement does not work as the old one did. It does not feed the string out and did not have the notches to hold the string in place inside the spool.

Bad head design?
Cannot get the head to feed line and work to get the first time using it. I treated myself to this more expensive higher quality Milwaukee product after years of frustration with lower cost trimmers. Very disappointed so far with the head, but can tell the rest of this trimmer is high quality. Please re design this head!

Disappointed in the trimmer head
I only use this trimmer on my own home once a week and the head is already broken after just five weeks. The rest of the trimmer is awesome and I would highly recommend the over all trimmer to someone, but the head is a complete failure for such a great product. Clearly Milwaukee chose to cut costs in the design and construction of the head.
