What is QUIK-LOK?
Essentially, QUIK-LOK is a single cordless power head that drives multiple attachments. Each attachment swaps out tool-free, making for easy transitions between applications. Just click the attachment into the power head and secure it with a twist of the onboard thumb screw.
While cleaner and quieter than gas-powered equipment, Milwaukee QUIK-LOK doesn’t skimp on power. Its brushless motor cuts through thick grass and brush with the trimmer attachment. The pole saw attachment cuts hardwood up to 3″ thick. This system is ideal for landscape maintenance professionals who need powerful tools for sites where noise and emission control is necessary.
What’s more, with the versatility of the QUIK-LOK system, these tools are an excellent option for homeowners. QUIK-LOK streamlines your lawn and garden tools, and saves space in your garden shed. All without sacrificing performance.
QUIK-LOK Power Head: Pro-Level Cutting Performance
Loaded with Milwaukee’s latest cordless tech, the QUIK-LOK power head delivers excellent power and runtime. The power head is designed to run on an M18 High Demand 9.0 Ah battery pack, yet it’s compatible with all M18 batteries. Keep this in mind: Using batteries other than the 9.0 Ah will affect runtime and balance, that is, the way the tool feels in your hands. When using landscaping tools over the course of a day, balance is an essential factor to ensuring comfort, control and efficiency. For QUIK-LOK, the 9.0 Ah battery settles the tool in the sweet spot, making it the ideal power source.
In addition, the power head features a POWERSTATE brushless motor and REDLINK PLUS intelligence, which protects the tool against overheating, overloading and over discharging.
It’s equipped with two speed settings (turtle and hare) and a variable speed trigger.
What’s notable is the super quick throttle. It delivers near-instantaneous speed, reaching full rpm in under one second. The powerful-yet-compact brushless motor doesn’t bog down and, while it’s not as brawny as a gas engine, it offers top-notch performance and feel—without the mess or noise of two-stroke combustion.
