For the past 8 years Milwaukee Tool has been the industry leader in jobsite lighting with over 40+ job lighting solutions. Milwaukee doesn’t take this lightly, so they have expanded upon, and further developed their entire work light line from hazard awareness and remote-controlled spotlights to wearable lighting. Ditch the extension cords because this entire line is synced up with their cordless battery technology.
You’re working in the dark and some light would be greatly appreciated. Milwaukee recently introduced a new member to the lighting family, the M12 Rocket Dual Power Tower Light (2132-20). Is it worth skipping the new and approved M18 Rocket (2131-20)? Let’s shine some light on the differences of the two models to determine our decision. (more…)
The new Milwaukee M18 Tower Light has integrated AC Power and charges batteries.
The older Milwaukee M18 Stand light was a reasonable success, largely due to its runtime, brightness, and the fact that it collapsed down into an easily transportable package quickly and without tools. In September of 2016, Milwaukee will be launching their update to this product with a couple of key feature changes. (more…)
The Radius light from Milwaukee is engineered to provide an area lighting solution that replaces its halogen and fluorescent predecessors.
The M18 radius light can be used as a cordless light or using Milwaukee’s M18 batteries, features a maximum output of 4,400 Lumens and a maximum runtime of 10 hours (with 9.0 high output batteries). The AC on the light is pass through, so at the worst you don’t totally occupy a cord you may want to use for something else (providing that other thing has low amp draw, like a radio or charger) and at best you are able to string multiple lighting solutions together. Up to 12 lights can be strung together. However, the light is not a charger, and no power comes from the AC outlet when the light is running off of its battery. (more…)
At the Milwaukee Product Symposium a few months ago we go a look at 3 new innovative Milwaukee LED solutions and it looks like within the next month they should all be hitting store shelves. With the technology improving so rapidly and cost for LEDs coming down it really opens up all sorts of new opportunities. The M12 LED Spotlight 2353-20 ($69), M18 LED Stand Light 2130-20 ($249) and the M18 LED HP Flood Light 2360-20 ($149) are great examples of the path Milwaukee looks to be headed down.
