Know it's limitations
Tower Light is certainly well made and HEAVY which is good thing. Great in Hurricanes I bet. Only issue is the light intensity. 2000 lumens isn't much if you want to light up a large area. Light dissipates very fast but close up it is great. Bottom line, great for small projects, but so so for large areas.

So good it may last 500 years!
I was watching a show last night set 500 years in the future. They were walking down a coridor and there it was - the M18 dual power task light! "The Expanse, Season 3 Episode 5."
That said, I really like the one I purchased a year ago. As a homeowner it's perfect for use when painting rooms or working on a sump pump. The three light levels are just right to brightly light a room or dim it down for normal work. When not used for work this one sits in the "man cave" and makes a great floor lamp. It came in very handy last winter when we had a couple of power outages. It will light an entire room well and any M18 battery will run it for hours.

They got it right this time.
I have been using Milwaukee tools for around 8 years now. They have come a long way as far as popularity, especially with the DIY’s. But also kept us professionals happy with the fuel line of tools. I bought the first tower light, it’s a good light but half the time I have power accessible so it was a pain keeping batteries for the light as well as several other tools on a job. Now that isn’t a problem with the new dual power tower’s awesome will light a large room if needed or focus a smaller area. 3 settings to choose from. If it charged batteries it would really be a must have for everyone. I’m buying another soon. Wanted a new rover but I’ll wait until they put out the new model.

I used this product in a dim lit garage and it lights up where i am working with a very white bright light. It is a very quick setup requiring no tools and can be ready to use in seconds. this light folds up into a nice lightweight package with a carry handle and can be set up yo use anywhere with using a M18 battery. It also has 110 volt plug in for interior use. It is built rugged and I can see it will last me many many years. Well worth the money. Excellent product

Job Site Light Tower
This is the second light tower that I’v Purchased, the type work I do, sometimes there is no light, it lights up a large area, the first light I bought stays at the office, the office is about 50 miles from home, too far to go get it when needed, so I bought the second one.
Great light when you have to work at night or a dark electrical room.

Great tower light.
Works just as described. Definitely a plus that it can also be run off an extension cord and not just a battery.

Dose it charge batteries?
Chris D on May 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No it does not charge but if you plug it in to an extension cord it does not use the battery
can't get mine to run off an extension cord??
A shopper on Jun 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Be sure the cord is pushed on to male plug firmly. Next try using a different x cord. If that doesn’t work there is a problem with the light. Mine has always worked fine but things happen.
What is the largest size M18 battery that will fit?
A shopper on Dec 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have both last years model (which only fits up to 9.0) and the new dual power model which has an enlarged opening to now fit the 12.0 m18. I personally dont have a 12.0 but the increase in size of the opening should easily support said larger battery
Battery ? Does it come with one
A shopper on Aug 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Model 2131-20 will not include a battery. The battery and charger are sold separately.
This is advertised as the "Dual Power" unit BUT the photo shows the battery only unit.
so which is it?
$199.00 bare tool only is a REAL good price for the "New" DUAL Power piece...!
Thomas A E on Oct 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Model 2131-20 is the bare tool Dual Power Tower Light. If you need the kit, the model number will be MILN2135-21HD.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
