Ottawa, Ontario -- October 10, 2013 -- According to lighting tool manufacturer Maxxeon, the Realtree AP camouflage coating on the new WorkStar 2030 light looks great and offers a cushioned comfortable grip, but as company spokesperson Roger Britt cautions tongue-in-cheek, â€Be careful where you set it down. You may not find it again.â€ Originally designed for use by hunters, Maxxeon says the WorkStar 2030 also has features that make it quicker and easier for automotive techs to complete their tasks.
Inspired by the unconventional design of the WorkStar 2000 Technicianâ€™s work light, the WorkStar 2030 can also be used â€œhands-freeâ€ and offers a unique combination of features. These include a moveable, directional light head with two brightness levels, and a choice of mounting options including powerful, integral rare earth magnets, retractable hook or tripod mount. The light is rechargeable, with a run time of up to eight hours and uses a single, high output 270 lumen light-emitting diode (LED) as the lighting source. The LED is virtually unbreakable and has a life expectancy of 50,000 hours.
The company says a critical element of the lightâ€™s design is the beam pattern architecture that is common to all Maxxeon lighting tools. The wide-angle, floodlight-style beam pattern produced by the Maxxeon light has been designed to be completely uniform and free from the dark spots or hot spots. This clear beam pattern is achieved using an intense white light, and results in the user being able to see clearly, and easily distinguish features and colors within the beam range. This ability to see a wide field of view clearly and precisely is an obvious benefit to auto techs when troubleshooting.
The Maxxeon Hunterâ€™s Floodlight is also available in a red and black high impact plastic body and an imitation carbon fibre coated body. For more information, please visit maxxeon.com
