Milwaukee® Towers Above the Rest with 2X the Light Output

MILWAUKEE, WI – Leading jobsite lighting provider in the industry, Milwaukee Tool, is expanding their Lighting Solutions once again with the introduction of the next generation of tower light performance – the M18™ ROCKET™ Tower Light/Charger. Providing 100% more high-output light than the original M18™ ROCKET™ Tower Light/Charger, the new tower light is a brighter stand light solution built to meet jobsite visibility needs.

“In 2016, we gave users a tower light solution that solved all the common frustrations users had with halogen stand lights,” said Jason Isaacs, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “This year, we’re making our most fully featured cordless tower light even better with the introduction of our second-generation tower light/charger, complete with all the features users came to know and love and 2X the lighting output of the original model.”

Like the original model, the new M18™ ROCKET™ Tower Light/Charger features a multi-directional light head, allowing users to orient three independently pivoting light heads to direct light wherever it’s needed. For optimized control over 6,000 lumens of TRUEVIEW™* High Definition Light, the tower light has three output settings. For easy transport and storage, the light features an updated carry rail and carry bag, sets up in seconds, and can be extended from 4-7’ to light overhead work or minimize shadows when casting light downward.

For ease of use, the M18™ ROCKET™ Tower Light/Charger has an integrated AC plug for use with a standard extension cord, and on board M18™ Battery charger, and a USB port for charging personal devices on site. Like Milwaukee’s other high output LED lights, the new Tower Light LEDs never need to be replaced and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.  

Milwaukee® is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. This light is part of the M18™ System, now offering more than 200 power tool solutions. Focused on the user and investing in game-changing technology, Milwaukee will continue to design and develop lighting solutions with the ability to adapt, perform and survive the demands of professional use.
