When powered by an M12™ REDLITHIUM™ XC6.0 battery pack, it runs up to 10 hours on a single charge or can be plugged into an extension cord for all-day operation.

Historic restoration.

Built before electricity.

Dark crawl spaces and attics.

Not to mention after we pull all the knob and tube out.

I could use one of those lights right now. I'm in the middle of running plumbing and electrical wiring (including new service panel) in the basement of a house that's being rebuilt after a fire and has no electricity. I've lost count of how many extension cords we have running from the generator.

More generally, I do a lot of crawl space and attic work. That light would shine there.

Uh, so to speak.

This time of year, especially when it rains, it can be dark a lot of the day.

Deaknh 11-02-2018 05:05 PM

Interior painting, bathroom remodels especially when fixtures are being swapped out, any work outside after 5pm...its dark here now.

RichVT 11-02-2018 05:16 PM

I would use it for painting. Can never have too much artificial light this time of year.

Big Johnson 11-02-2018 05:21 PM

Daylight savings time is ending Saturday. So pretty much every night since it’s going to be dark at 5.

Calidecks 11-02-2018 05:28 PM

Absolutely without a doubt, loading my trailer at night. Would work great for lighting the whole thing up from outside the trailer. [emoji106]

I use some sort of lighting on nearly every job, right now I'm using 2 of these on one of my jobs. I have 3 jobs going so I take one with me at the end of the day, not the only lights I have but they're the best I have.

Was just using the dewalt version of this light today, replacing an old cast iron sewer pipe in a remodel we are doing for a GC.

Basement remodels, we now cut ceiling holes with wire looped in the ceiling (no power/no lights). Lights get powered up after taped, sprayed and painted.

Chimney liners...always dark and dingy behind heaters in old basements when I rip open the thimble area...will come in handy big league.

General dark condition supplemental lighting...of which we all know happens more than we'd like.

Perfecting my already perfect drywall and plaster work :rolleyes:

and lest we not forget the occasional power outage that are seemingly lasting longer and longer each time we get one :censored:

I've been looking at LED work lights and those look pretty bright, 7000 lumens is roughly the equivalent of 3000 watts of ballasted light if my memory serves. Of course during the winter its nice having that heat source, up until someones trying to warm up and stands in your light

fjn 11-02-2018 09:47 PM

Striking up masonry work that absolutely had to be done that day and running out of day light.:thumbsup:

Seven-Delta-FortyOne 11-02-2018 09:48 PM

Because I do so much electrical, I'm constantly working without power. So battery-lighting is pretty necessary for me.

I know, I know, "You were trained to work it hot, so work it hot". :blink: :no:

No thanks.

Joasis 11-03-2018 06:12 AM

When we shore saferooms before concrete pours, and no power.

BeforeChristoff 11-03-2018 06:39 AM

I do a lot of attic work where there is no lighting and I'm getting tired of the electrical cord constantly being in the way, also when doing major electrical work with my electrician it comes in handy when doing panel work when the main power is off

hdavis 11-03-2018 09:17 AM

I practically live with a headlamp on. Attics, crawl spaces, closets, outside work after dark. It seems there is never enough light.

I'd use these for area lighting, but I'd still have my headlamp.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 05:00 PM.
