When fully extended, the UB18DGQ4 tripod light stands 84 inches tall. You can shrink it down to 39 inches (or anywhere in between) if you’re in an area with lower clearance or if you need to dial in your light closer to the ground.
It features three light panels that rotate 230° horizontally and 215° vertically to give you a variety of lighting angles. In total, there are 66 white LED lights that provide real-color lighting wherever you need it.
You can also easily transport this tripod light around using the convenient carrying handle, and its 17.9-pound weight makes it more than manageable to lug on and off the jobsite as needed.
Additionally, this light is IP55-rated, meaning it’s resistant to water and dust.
This work light retails for $199 as a bare tool, including an AC adapter. There are no kit options available at the time of writing. Metabo HPT backs your purchase with a 2-year warranty.
