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


Congrats guys. That's why I didn't enter. I don't need/want another battery system. I just got the 18v Milwaukee stuff, I don't need the 12 volt too.

I’ve actually had the 12V hackzall in my amazon shopping cart for a long time. Now I’ll more than likely get it.

If this was one of the 18v lights I would have been all over that.

Received the light today. Thanks to CT and Milwaukee.

Has to be plugged but I’m too tired to dig out an extension cord so I’ll get pictures when I get to the job site tomorrow.

I bumped into the FedEx guy this evening.

I figure the rest of the kit is on a separate shipment. Based on what Big Johnson reported....

How about that...it seems that package turned up on my porch this evening after-all, and I did slap in the charged up battery to test it out.

It's not the brightest light in the world but I think an appropriate amount of light. About 10 or 12 feet from the back of my shop, it cast a wide beam that illuminated the entire back wall, (22' wide), plus some of the side walls..... I could see things I haven't seen in years....I really need to throw some stuff out...

That little light is adjustable up, down and turn around with no problems.

Thanks again to Milwaukee tools and ContractorTalk.com for sponsoring the giveaway!
