Makita sheds even more light


Makita has launched two new cordless work lights, compatible with both 40VMax XGT and 18V LXT batteries. The perfect onsite companions, the ML005 and ML009 benefit from a compact design and are IP65 certified dust and water resistant.

The ML005 40VMax XGT Cordless Worklight has three brightness settings, delivering up to 3,600 lumens and offers approximately 3.5 hours of continuous illumination on high mode, when used with the BL4040 battery. The light has a controller with a memory function, so it will return to the last brightness setting when turned on.

For increased brightness the ML009 40VMax XGT Cordless Worklight delivers up to 10,000 lumens, with a lighting coverage of approximately 9.7m to the front and 11.4m to either side. In addition, an optional lamp shade can provide widespread illumination and reduce the glare of LED light and multiple shadows. When in high mode the ML009 can offer up to 2.4 hours of illumination, when used with 2 x BL4040 batteries.

Both lights have an LED colour of daylight white and a colour temperature of 5,000k, offering optimum visibility for intricate work or decoration. They can be rotated from -30° to 210° for easy adjustment of the light angle and can be mounted on an optional tripod lighting stand (GM00002073, not included).

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita said: “Cordless work lights offer the ultimate in convenience, as there is no need for a power source, and they can be easily moved around the workspace. The new ML005 and ML009 work lights offer the additional benefit of being nice and compact – due to the retractable handles – whilst still delivering powerful illumination.”
