Say Goodbye to Hand Pruners and Embrace Milwaukee’s M12 Brushless Loppers
Pruning can be a tiring and repetitive task, especially when dealing with fast-growing trees like crape myrtle in Central Florida. That’s where the Milwaukee 2534 M12 Brushless Loppers come in. Designed to provide an ergonomic solution for repetitive pruning, this cordless tool can be a valuable addition to your landscaping toolkit. In this article, we’ll delve into everything you need to know about the Milwaukee M12 Brushless Loppers and how they can make your pruning tasks a breeze.
The Milwaukee M12 Brushless Loppers are perfect for fast and controlled pruning, even on large branches. With the ability to cut branches up to 1-1/4 inches thick, this powerful tool eliminates the hand fatigue associated with manual loppers.
One standout feature of the Milwaukee M12 Brushless Loppers is the mode select button. This innovative addition allows you to choose between larger or smaller branches, enabling the tool to adjust its power and reduce the time it takes for the jaws to open when working on smaller branches. By switching to “half-width” mode, you can make smaller repeat cuts, increasing your pruning speed by approximately 40%.
With the M12 CP2.0 battery, the Milwaukee M12 Brushless Loppers can deliver over 1000 cuts per charge on branches up to 1/2 inch thick. Compared to manual pruners, this battery-powered tool reduces muscle effort by up to 75%.
During a media event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, we had the opportunity to extensively test these loppers. One feature that immediately caught our attention was the blade’s response to the trigger. Pulling the trigger engages the blades, while releasing it instantly opens the blade. This unique mechanism provides precise control over the cut capacity in any application. It’s intuitive, natural, and allows for quick adjustments during pruning.
We made numerous cuts on both thin and thick branches using the applicable cutting patterns. The Milwaukee M12 Brushless Loppers exhibit a responsiveness similar to that of hand scissors. Additionally, the in-line ergonomics of the tool make it more convenient for pruning trees and large shrubs compared to the bulkier DeWalt 20V loppers. Not only are they lighter, but they also offer more features and power while maintaining the same cutting capacity. In terms of design, Milwaukee has clearly put in a lot of effort to create a tool that eliminates the need for manual hand-held scissors.
And that’s exactly what we believe this tool achieves.
- Lightweight inline design
- Built-in hand guard
