MILWAUKEE, WI – The leading jobsite lighting provider in the industry, Milwaukee Tool, continues to expand their Lighting Solutions with the introduction of the M18 RADIUS™ Compact Site Light w/ Flood Mode. Building off the popularity of their other industry-leading RADIUS™ site lights, Milwaukee’s newest light provides a more compact solution for users who require the versatility of two lights in one. With 2,200 lumens of light output in area mode and 1,000 lumens of flood lighting, the light can easily handle both large work areas and smaller task situations.

2144_20_4_480pxThe dual function of the M18 RADIUS™ Compact Site Light w/ Flood Mode allows users to carry less to the jobsite. The main body of the light provides 360° of area light, while an independent array of LEDs on the side provide 90° of task lighting. Additionally, its compact size makes it easy to transport to and from the jobsite.

The new M18 RADIUS™ Compact Site Light w/ Flood Mode can illuminate large and smaller task workspaces for up to 24 hours on a single charge. The light features TRUEVIEW™ Technology, which utilizes the most advanced LED technology and optical designs to deliver a consistent beam, optimized color temperature, and true representation of colors and detail leading to a more productive work area.

Equipped with a 4-1/4” self-centering metal hook, users can hang the unit overhead on studs and piping. An AC inlet also allows the user the option of plugging in the light for extended run-time.

A durable high impact polycarbonate lens design can survive harsh jobsite conditions, and is impact and chemical resistant, delivering superior impact durability. Similar to all of Milwaukee’s high output LED lights, the new Site Light also features a limited lifetime LED warranty, and a 5-year warranty on the light.

Powered by Milwaukee REDLITHIUM™ batteries*, the new M18 RADIUS™ Compact Site Light w/ Flood Mode is compatible with the M18™ cordless system, now offering more than 150 power tool products. Committed to its focus on the user and investment in game-changing technology, Milwaukee® will continue to design and develop lighting solutions with the ability to adapt, perform and survive the demands of professional use.

SDS+ DUST TRAP™ Drilling ShroudDedicated to introducing productivity-focused dust collection solutions for compliance with the new Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA®) regulation on respirable crystalline silica dust*, Milwaukee Tool is excited to announce the industry’s first OSHA® compliance solution that doesn’t require the use of a vacuum – the Milwaukee® SDS Plus DUST TRAP™ Drilling Shroud. Ideal for overhead drilling applications, and with a universal fit to work with all SDS Plus rotary hammers, the DUST TRAP™ is an OSHA® objective data compliance solution that doesn’t require the use of a vacuum. The accessory is also OSHA® Table 1** compliant when used in conjunction with a proper dust extractor.

“As employers continue to equip themselves with the accessories needed to be compliant, it can be difficult to quickly and efficiently ensure full compliance amid the high costs of many solutions and the limited availability of cordless options that offer a universal fit,” said Iris Horn, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “The Milwaukee ® SDS Plus DUST TRAP™ Drilling Shroud is the answer to these frustrations. A cost-effective and completely universal accessory, the DUST TRAP™ offers an efficient and flexible way for users to adjust to the daily demands of the jobsite while remaining compliant.”

The DUST TRAP™ is built with a clear sleeve which provides visibility when lining up the hole and during the drilling application. Once attached to the front of the rotary hammer, it keeps dust contained throughout the duration of the drilling process. Afterwards the sleeve can be emptied, and the entire unit easily collapses and locks for storage. The compact, collapsible design is ideal for hard-to-reach places, providing superior productivity to the user.

The universal fit of the DUST TRAP™ allows it to work with all SDS Plus rotary hammer brands and styles and all SDS Plus drill bits up to 8” in length, including stop bits and other anchor installation tools.

Milwaukee® is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work. As employers work to be compliant with the new OSHA® regulation, Milwaukee Tool is dedicated to continuing to expand its Dust Extraction System.

* Enforcement of the new OSHA regulation on respirable crystalline silica dust (29 CFR 1926.1153) for construction trades began on September 23, 2017. This regulation reduces the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) to 50 µg/m3 over an 8-hour period and affects jobsites nationwide.

** In order to be compliant with the new regulation* companies prove they are under the PEL by following Table 1 standards, demonstrating objective data, or conducting their own self-monitoring programs, as laid out by OSHA.
