Milwaukee M18 LED Flood Light | First Look

Milwaukee Tool

Milwaukee M18 LED Work Light

Topping off our look at their New Product Symposium is the Milwaukee M18 LED Flood Light. We were impressed with the intensity of this LED unit, as well as the variety of jobsite-friendly features.


The M18 Flood Light is compact. Don’t let its diminutive size fool you – it throws an incredible amount of light.

M18 LED Flood Light Video Preview

Tyson Apfelbeck is the Product Marketing Coordinator for this line and gave us a rundown on why this light rocks. Take at look at this video preview, then feel free to read on for more information.


Milwaukee M18 LED Flood Light Features

  • Hi/Low Setting
  • Runtime: XC Battery/Low: up to 6 hrs.
  • Runtime: XC Battery/High – up to 3 hrs.
  • M18 Power System
  • Sturdy “Roll Cage”
  • Multiple Hanging Points

This was a completely darkened hallway in Milwaukee. The M18 Flood Light illuminated it to the point that it would be easy to do work there.


You can hang this light in a number of ways, using wire or EMT. The flat-sided roll cage allows you to set it in multiple positions, as well.


The power source M18 battery installs neatly on the front of the light. Controls are also easy to access.

With all of the hanging and positioning options, this light should be right at home on the job. Plus, it seems pretty tough. We saw it tossed, dropped and thrown during demonstrations and it always kept right on ticking. That’s not to say that a well-positioned piece of rebar won’t take it down, but in most situations, this light can take a beating.

Milwaukee M18 Flood Light Opinion

Bottom line, we really liked this light. It was even brighter in person than it appears in the video and really took a beating while we watched. For the price range ($99-$129), this seems like it may be a great investment for the tool kit. We’re waiting on ours to arrive, and we’ll keep you posted.
