Milwaukee 2123 M18 Utility Remote Control Search Light
Milwaukee has several tools designed specifically for linemen – including an M18 hex impact wrench, crimping pliers, bucket lights, various hand tools, and more. Now we have the Milwaukee 2123 M18 Utility Remote Control Search Light. It kind of reminds us of a Star Wars droid.
Why Use the Milwaukee 2123 Utility Remote Control Light?
The 2123 Utility Remote Control Light is geared towards utility service and offers myriad options for use. It can run on 12V while mounted on a shovel cart. That gives you practically unlimited runtime and you can even control it when you are not around. You could be in the truck – or even in a bucket.
Alternatively, you can clip it to the M18 ™ portable base and place it in bright spots that your truck cannot access. Additionally. Milwaukee includes a wireless joystick remote control that allows you to direct the light where you want it. You can even switch from spot to one of two flood modes. This makes this light ideal for checking power lines or illuminating a larger area for maintenance work. A double tap on the power button even brings the light back to its starting position.
“Floodlights and spotlights are essential for stormy weather and routine maintenance, but most lights on the market today only have one of these functions and force a compromise on the user. We are dedicated to innovating lineman so they can be more productive and we’re excited to offer a long-lasting option that has the versatility to spot lines, flood fields, and literally go anywhere! “
Jason Isaacs, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool
