Every pumper has late-night emergency calls. A customer’s septic system backed up and they need the tank pumped immediately. It’s important that the pumping technician effectively light the job site for safety. The M18 Rocket LED Tower Light/Charger from Milwaukee Tool will do that. With setup in five seconds, the tower provides 3,000 lumens of high-output light for both task and area lighting, and can charge any M18 battery through a built-in charger.
“The M18 Rocket Tower Light has the capability to provide high-intensity task and area lighting in any environment where there is no ready access to AC power, or where it can be dangerous to string cords due to present water,” says Jason Isaacs, product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “For pumping or portable sanitation professionals who frequently move from job site to job site, the portability of the M18 Rocket is huge. It can collapse down to 40 inches for easy transport and storage.”
The unit delivers multidirectional light through three independently rotating, adjustable light heads. It has a runtime of up to 17 hours with TRUEVIEW Technology to deliver a consistent beam, optimized color temperature and true representation of colors and detail, leading to a more productive work area. Its rotating and pivoting light head extends from 4 to 7 feet to light overhead work or minimize shadows when casting light downward.
“It’s been clear for years that temporary lighting was a major obstacle for productivity and safety,” says Isaacs. “Logging hundreds of hours on the job site, we interact with users on a daily basis to learn about their frustrations and ideas. This drives us to develop solutions professionals truly want and need to perform their job productively.”
The unit has an AC/DC input with an integrated M18 Charger. When plugged in, this charger can charge all M18 battery packs so users can quickly get back to the job at hand and have a battery ready to go when they need it. Its impact-resistant, reinforced legs and low center of gravity provide a stable base. A durable polycarbonate lens design can survive harsh job site use, delivers impact durability, and the light heads nest into a protective shroud.
Additionally, with an IPX4 rating, the unit is water resistant.
“We saw a huge opportunity to deliver a versatile and durable solution that professionals have not had before,” says Isaacs. 800/729-3878; www.milwaukeetool.com.
