Milwaukee High Output LED Jobsite Lighting

Milwaukee High Output LED Jobsite Lighting

Lighting is a fast-growing segment of the tool industry with many new products illuminating the dark spaces of the jobsite. Milwaukee hopes to brighten up the space further with four new Milwaukee high output LED jobsite lighting solutions ranging from 1,000 to 4,400 lumens available in October.


Milwaukee High Output LED Jobsite Lighting: Milwaukee M18 Rocket

First up is the 3,000 lumen M18 Rocket LED tower light/charger featuring TrueView technology, a tri-fold head design with 3 independently-rotating and adjustable heads, built in charger,17-hour run time with the included 9.0 RedLithium battery, and an IPX4 rating. The rotating and pivoting light head can be extended from 4 feet to 7 feet and the unit collapses to 40″ for transport and storage.

“Our users need task and area lighting that can be easily set up, provide high output light in numerous directions for precise light placement and is built to thrive in whatever environment they’re in. After spending countless hours on the jobsite talking to these users, we’ve developed a new tower light that can solve all of the due frustration users have with halogen stand lights.”

– Jason Isaacs, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool

Milwaukee High Output LED Jobsite Lighting: Milwaukee M18 Radius with One-Key

Next is the 4400 lumen M18 Radius LED Compact Site Light with One-Key (we’ve reviewed the 2145 model without One-Key). Milwaukee’s ONE-KEY technology allows the user to control the light’s brightness, direction, and schedule from the ONE-KEY app within a 50-foot range. ONE-KEY also provides inventory management capability with light location and settings and updating these records when any device with the ONE-KEY app comes within 100ft of the Site Light.

“Lighting is an essential tool on nearly every jobsite, but often the setup time required can be a productivity-killer. The ONE-KEY™ functionality will take our users’ jobsite lighting experience to the next level, allowing them to change brightness, light direction, and program automatic schedules without manually readjusting the light. This is particularly important when the light is in hard-to-reach or remote areas – ultimately saving valuable time while on the job.”
