The Milwaukee M12 Rover Floodlight is intended for use just about anywhere. It features a handy 110º pivoting head for better control over the direction of your lighting.

Meanwhile, the rear of the tool features a strong magnet. It attached easily to ferrous surfaces like panel boxes, I-beams, metal studs—even under car hoods. An integrated keyhole also lets you hang it from a nail. Plus, with its streamlined design, you can simply use it as a handheld or stationary light.

Milwaukee built the M12 Rover Floodlight for plenty of jobsite abuse as well. It features an IP54 rating to protect it against water and dust. An impact-resistant lens guards the LEDs, and it can withstand a drop from up to 9 feet.

Our Thoughts

Having seen everything from the Milwaukee Packout Light to the MX FUEL Rocket Tower Light, the company is serious about lighting. From PPE headlamps to area lights to products that provide illumination for an entire jobsite, Milwaukee seems to have things covered. This M12 Rover floodlight lets us know the company isn’t done innovating. That’s fine by us. At just $59, the Milwaukee 2367-20 seems like an easy add-on for those already on the M12 battery platform. The fact that it has such excellent run-time and even charges your smartphone makes it all that much easier to recommend.

Pricing and Availability

You can expect the Milwaukee M12 Rover Floodlight to become available in November 2020. As mentioned above, it will sell as a bare tool for $59, and it comes with Milwaukee’s 5-year warranty on the tool body. The LED itself carries a lifetime warranty.

Milwaukee D Handle Drill with Right Angle Drive Review 1107-6

We reviewed the Milwaukee 1107-6 7 amp D-handle drill with the optional right angle drive attachment and were blown away by its powerful torque and drilling capability, especially in tight corners. This is a tool that, bar none, any serious contractor should have in their arsenal. This tool is not for bargain hunters, however as it will set you back quite a bit to benefit from its stellar performance.

Milwaukee 6955-20 12″ Sliding Dual Miter Saw Review

The Milwaukee 6955-20 12-inch sliding dual miter saw is a sight to behold. Its digital miter angle readout sets it apart from the competition. Milwaukee uses a clear lower blade guard – a HUGE improvement over the typically opaque guards you see with some other manufacturers. A pair of dual work lights really rounded out the feature set of this sliding miter saw and, in our opinion, should be standard operating procedure on all tools of this genre. Who doesn’t want a little light on their workspace?
