Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Job Site Lighting Reviews

When you talk about jobsite lighting, many products come to mind. Our job site lighting reviews including everything from LED flashlights to work lights and other lighting systems. We cover everything for the workshop or job site but also deal in portable lighting, including battery powered and cordless lights. These new cordless lighting products provide hours of runtime. They shine brighter and have more color accuracy than ever before. Newer LED-based lighting products also have the kind of run-time you only imagined a battery-based tool could have. Job Site Lighting Reviews for Contractors and Shop Owners We feel that halogen job site lighting has reached the end of its life. Newer LED-based lighting solutions like the Festool SysLite DUO work light and the Maxxeon WorkStar 5000 work light have made that clear. Even smaller battery-powered products have changed jobsite lighting. A great example includes the RYOBI Hybrid LED work light. Our job site lighting reviews focus on several key elements. What is the light output? How well does the light cover the work area? If battery-powered, does the LED light provide enough run-time? What is the quality of light (hotspots, color temperature, etc)?
