Good work light!
Well built strong work light. Stands firmly on it"s own or can be hung by one of two hooks provided. 12 LED bulbs provide daylight brightness to any work site.

Great light. Wish it was brighter.
I wish it was brighter. I bought 2 of them to compensate. Other than that, I love it. I previously owned the Makita DML806 which was awesome but the poor design of the switch caused it to break shortly after the warranty period. It would have cost more to fix than to buy a new one. Do not buy the DML806.

Makita flashlight
Had it for a couple months now, used it a lot. It's very versatile and bright and still on its first battery. A must have for anyone with makita tools.

Makita LED
Excellent light, has two brightnesses settings, the battery life is impressive, and folds to a compact size. Any professional or handyman will love this in his collection of tools. I was sceptical thinking I might not use it often, but with the multidirectional head I can easily direct light to the area I’m working on without messing around with cords or stands. It turns out to be a hug time saver and I use it on the daily.
