Re: Giveaway: Milwaukee M12™ ROCKET™ Dual Power Tower Light


I would use the M12 ROCKET Dual Power Tower Light in very low light situations of all types that arise during generally remodeling and rehab jobs.

Re: Giveaway: Milwaukee M12™ ROCKET™ Dual Power Tower Light


Right now with the day light being so short.. I would use it for getting started every morning and finishing up every night.

I had no idea they made a m12 light stand, very cool and another reason to get a m12 line up.

I need a M12 ROCKET Dual Power Tower Light to do my work more safely, multiple aspects. And if I'm not lucky enough to win this drawing I'll probably have to buy one myself (and skimp on a meal or two to fund it).

In dark situations to provide light

Milwaukee makes awesome lights, and I am happy with all five that I own.

Re: Giveaway: Milwaukee M12™ ROCKET™ Dual Power Tower Light


Through the Winter months, I'll be needing a light for loading up and unloading tools and such each morning and again in the evening.

My night vision ain't what it used to be.

Remodeling projects in general, drywall repairs, finding tools and stuff in storage (basement or attic), rooting around in the shed, cleaning the vehicle in darkening evenings, garage adventures, and so on.

Light output is underestimated by so many....and to their own detriment and reduced productivity.

Re: Giveaway: Milwaukee M12™ ROCKET™ Dual Power Tower Light


Good area lighting will change my whole attitude about a project. The headlamp will let me keep track of what is right in front of me, but its so nice to have the area well lit
Whatever we are remodeling always has lights out at some point, its important to have some good temporary illumination

Re: Giveaway: Milwaukee M12™ ROCKET™ Dual Power Tower Light


I do a lot of work in factories and businesses that are under renovation so usually the electric is all ripped out meaning no overhead lights so a cordless tower like that would be really nice instead of running extension cords to my lights

The situation I would use the Rocket light in would be one where I am working in an environment without power and light such as an attic or crawlspace. I would also use it when finishing drywall or painting.

I'd use those M12 Rocket ligh'st in the plastic bubbles I make for repairs and remodeling. I have LED light's now. But they're not near as nice of lights as these Milwaukee's.

Re: Giveaway: Milwaukee M12™ ROCKET™ Dual Power Tower Light


With the onset of winter things get pretty dark in the north. Early morning and basement work it's essential to have light. Power on site is a luxury and adequate lighting is needed for safety and ease of work. I'd use it everywhere; opening the trailer so the guys can see what they're trying to grab then in the middle of the work site so we can set up and finally in the specific work area so we can see what we're framing.

I would probably use it on every job inside the house, and inside the garage when I work on my trucks!
