Milwaukee® Expands Outdoor Power Equipment Lineup with the Versatile QUIK-LOK™ Attachment System
Powered by M18 FUEL™, the QUIK-LOK™ Attachment System utilises 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 1 KG 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 145 other solutions. Plus, the ability to switch out multiple attachments based on the application will make jobs quicker, easier and more cost-effective,” said Gustaf Sjoberg, 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™ Power Head with QUIK-LOK™ or M18 FUEL™ Line Trimmer with QUIK-LOK™. Once installed in the QUIK-LOK™ Attachment System, users can easily add on any additional attachments they need, when they need them.
