Milwaukee Tool has launched a portable and high-output battery-powered light, which is part of the new MX FUEL Equipment System. The MX FUEL ROCKET Tower Light/Charger is a 10-ft light designed for inside or outside use. Delivering up to 27,000 lm of task and area lighting, the light can be set up in seconds, features outriggers for leveling, and withstands the harshest job site environments.
“For years high output task lighting options have always been tethered to a cord, forcing users to spend valuable time setting up generators in remote applications and deal with products that are difficult to move around in job site environments,” said Jason Isaacs, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “With the introduction of the MX FUEL ROCKET Tower Light/Charger, part of the MX FUEL Equipment System, we now offer the additional battery capacity to quickly provide a high amount of light without requiring access to AC power. In areas with access to AC power, we’ve also integrated the MX FUEL Charger into the light that acts as a battery backup solution or an onsite MX FUEL battery charger for additional job-site value. Not only are we bringing cordless technology into a space where it’s relatively unavailable, but we are solving the problems of portability and stability in these environments as well.”
Built with all-terrain 8-in. wheels MX FUEL ROCKET Tower Light/Charger requires little effort to move across uneven ground – whether it’s rolled across rough terrain during early phase construction or across pan decking for early morning concrete pours. The telescopic lighting tower can be set up in seconds to a maximum height of 10 ft with a motorized mast and collapses back down to 44 in. for easy transportation and storage. Once it is in place, four outriggers can be quickly deployed to provide more stability on uneven surfaces. The four multidirectional LED light heads can cast up to 27,000 lm of TRUEVIEW High Definition Output when plugged into AC power. When equipped with an MX FUEL REDLITHIUM XC406 battery, the light tower runs for three hours on high at 20,000 lm or up to 10 hrs on its lowest setting a single charge. It can also be plugged into an extension cord for all-day operation, as well as charge any MX FUEL REDLITHIUM battery pack.
While deployed, the light can withstand up to 35 mph winds and is protected from rain, wind, and dust. Like all of Milwaukee’s high output LED lights, the new light also features a limited lifetime LED warranty and a five-year warranty on the product.
