    I am pleased to report that it works perfectly for that purpose. I have about 100 feet of steep bank edge that I mow with the hedge trimmer attachment. I used to use my B&D pole hedge trimmer and while it worked okay for weeds it didn't do too well on the tall grass. The Milwaukee unit works on weeds and grass. With the articulating head I can adjust the angle so it skims the ground.

    Be aware that the hedge trimmer attachment is a bit on the heavy side. It is probably the heaviest of the Quik-Lok attachments. But.. I just go slow and take a few breaks as there is nothing else that will allow me to reach these weeds.

    I have some weeds on the top of a steep ridge along my driveway that have never been trimmed because nothing can reach them and the bank is too steep to stand on. I'm waiting for the pole extension to become available as that will allow me to get right in there and cut them down.

    Thatís awesome - thanks!

    I have a couple areas in mind - mostly the bank along the road upstream of my driveway. I can only get one pass with my tractor but need more for better sight distance but it is way steep. Sounds like just the ticket.

    I am hoping that I can rig one of my straps to it which will help carry the weight.

    The hedge trimmer attachment includes the Milwaukee shoulder strap. I wasnít aware of that and was surprised when I found the strap in the box.
