Bought this a few days ago.
It is awesome. I have the m18 rockets and the only negative to them is the weight and sheer size of the tool when folded. This is super light and compact. I'm working on a way to attach a sling to make it even easier to haul around.
One thing I didn't know it would be useful for is using it like a boom mic.
Fully extend the neck and leave the legs folded, use the handle and hold it as an extension to your arm.
Two of us were working in a small corner and I was able to stand back and hang the light in the perfect spot over their shoulder without standing on top of them.
It really is light, and feels sturdy.
Im glad they put a 120v plug in the bottom as well. This feels like a quality piece and I feel it will out last the m12 platform and batteries for years to come. I'm treating it more as an investment in long term lighting that won't have to be reliant on batteries years from now when something new comes along.

SUMMER20 kills the free battery. Make sure you double check.

I think this is a great deal if you're invested in the M12 tool system. The free 6.0 battery is the highest capacity battery the M12 line has and as someone else mentioned you can easily flip this battery for $60 making this deal even sweeter.

That being said, I still think the M18 Rocket Tower is better than the M12 for several reasons: provides more lumens, more height, more run time (if you have a high capacity 18V 9.0 or 12.0 battery) and it can also charge your batteries if necessary. The downside is that it's more expensive (of course) and almost 10lbs heavier. I recently got in on the M18 Radius Compact light deal b/c I had more use for a portable light system indoors (power outages) and in sheds/garages. These tower lights are really meant for outdoor jobsite type situations (and maybe if you're a photographer?). They also have utility if you're a painter however I think you could still get away with one of the Radius lights for indoor contractor work.

FYI...It is a nice light but it doesn't come with a charger and the light stand will not charge the battery. So if you do not have a charger or radio you will need to buy one.

This is an excellent light, and for $99 if you return the battery, it's an incredible value

Go to acmetools.com this weekend and get $20 off $100, but free shipping starts at $200. I grabbed the light and free battery this morning.

SUMMER20 kills the free battery. Make sure you double check.

These rocket lights are great. Dual power makes it very useful, no need to rely on battery only if you have access to power. Unfortunately the models I've found at home Depot do not have the ability to charge the battery like the highest end one does, but that one is also $400.

The light normally retails for $150, so the free battery is nice. Only thing about this guy is the height is a bit shorter than the m18 version and less lumens. Still very bright.
