Milwaukee M12 Rover Compact Flood Light .
1,000 lumens isn't the brightest work light you can buy. The stand lights we use on our video set put out 6500 lumens each. And even Milwaukee's new site light puts out 9,000. But keep in mind what Milwaukee's M12 line lives for - replacing hand tools. In this case, that's a broad throw flashlight, which matches well with the 1,000-lumen output. And that outstanding versatility in positioning gives it a huge step up. .
There are some other lights in the compact class that will give you more light. Ryobi's Hybrid Work Light is one example that puts out 1700 lumens. But the trade off is positioning and durability. It's up to you of course, but that's a lot to lose for the way we use this light. If compact and awkward spaces are a normal part of your job, this is a tough light to beat and 1,000 lumens is enough. .
The sweet spot for working distance is going to be in the 3 - 5-foot range. .
In short, the Milwaukee M12 Rover Compact Flood Light might not look like a traditional jobsite illumination tool, but that's a good thing. With multiple ways for it to sit, hang, or be otherwise attached to things around the job, it's a nearly perfect light in many compact and awkward applications. And producing 1,000 lumens from its five LEDs, there's little you won't be able to see in those spaces.
If you're already on the M12 platform, you don't have to think too hard about this one - it's an easy decision. If you're not, it might just be enough to convince you to adopt it! Until our next review of the M18 Search Light, shine on!!
