I could use it when it's dark outside. Like if I get a flat tire at night, I can shine it on the area I am working and don't have to worry about my wrench slipping off the lug and skinning my knuckles.

The Milwaukee power tower would be ideal for the night calls outside that I occasionally do such as clearing a stoppage from a main-line clean out.


Or attic work where I need more light than the {1} incandescent lightbulb with the string on it up in the attic.


Or in a crawlspace so I can see all the critters while I inch along on my belly to repair something.

Our family owned company is 24 hour. So me my brother and my dad do a lot of night work especially Drain cleaning. Nothing like stumbling around in the dark in someones backyard We use the plug in halogen style stands but it can be a pain in the butt running multiple cords at 11:00 am. Plus the old style halogen bulbs are super expensive and get popped easily if were too rough. The units get so hot i'm always burning myself on them. On top of that i'm always worried about my truck catching on fire if put the hot halogen lamp in there. This would be a life saver!

P.S Does it help my chances if i mention we just bought a m18 milwaukee pro press
And I will also Rename my cat. From now on he will be known as Milwaukee!!!!!

Forget milwaukee, I love my makita lights. With 4amp 18v batteries on low(more than bright enough) they go for like 9 hours. I put magnets on the bottom of them so they stick to boilers and furnaces when servicing the burners or to stick them on castiron or steel pipe or ductwork. Or stick them to the ceiling of the van on night calls.


They run off 14v or 18v batteries, you can plug them in, and they are waterproof to at least the bottom of a trashcan full of "effluent"


Makita DML805 For the win!


Currently 99$ each I managed to get two for 197$ with a free light stand as a promotion when they first came out!

This would be great to use in crawlspaces, job sites that we start early in the morning, poorly lighted rooms or when the power is off. This would be very easy to carry around with you and it would light up my work space, plus keep both hands free since you don't need to hold a flashlight.

Light would be used on construction site where lights are few and far between. Also on a personal note, i detail vehicles on the side and would be a great help to me.

Another fine example of poetic verse describing the wretched conditions in which one toils giving cause to the need for enlightenment!

Well, like a mushroom, I'm kept in the dark and fed bullsh*t. So I'd use it just about all the time.
