Adding to the fold, nothing too fancy... just right.
I have had 3 work lights over the years and while the brightness has greatly improved, the ergonomics of the light has gotten worse on each new version. The ergonomics was best on the light you made about 15 years ago. The on/off switch was on the back and the head would pivot past 90° so you could have light on the part you are working on while its on a benchtop. The latest version has a bright LED light but the front switch is easy to accidently turn it off when you grab the light, and the head only pivots 90°. It's frustrating to have to find something to put under the light so it will tilt and shine on your benchtop when a simple design change would allow the head to pivot past 90°. Move the switch to the back and allow the head to pivot more and you would have the perfect light. Do your designer actually use the tools they design? If so, they would immediately see the improved user experience these changes would bring.
Had this flashlight for 4 years and now it doesn't work. Found out it has a 5 year warranty but not getting any replies from Milwaukee. Worked well but now it doesn't...
I use this light for repair of outdoor power equipment. A very good light. I don't normally worry about blemishing surfaces with the magnet so, I removed the rubber magnet protector and got much more sticking power. Doesn't fall off steel parts anymore. Only problem: some carburetor cleaner got on the plastic lens and fogged it up. Asked Milwaukee where I could get a replacement lens several time through this website with no answer. If its not available, just tell me.
The light output is the only thing that saves this from going down to 1 star.
A round task light? What were they thinking? This thing won't stand up, lay down or stay where you want the light to be. Honestly the most frustrating tool to use in my bags. I opted for a Petzl headlamp instead.
