Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Heavy Duty Indusrtial Set
This is a very nice set from Husky.
The tools are quality made with additional features such as: easy to read sockets; quick release ratchet; knurled ratchet handle for better grip; and handy carrying case.
The ratchet also comes with a knurled wheel to allow spinning of loose fasteners without having to remove the socket.
A 3/4 drive is essential for larger projects such as RV's, large trucks, farm equipment, and for the industrial mechanic.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Not bad
This ratchet/socket set is for serious heavy work. The set weighs over 24 lbs and the ratchet weighs over 5 pounds alone. The ratchet has a definite loud click when reversing, there's no mistaking it. The ratchet has a push button release that pushes the socket off the head while it releases the detent ball pressure. The breaker bar (aka F-handle) does not. Each tool has a label in the case to make it easy to return it to the correct place. Each wrench is 18.5" long from the end of the handle to the middle of the socket drive. I would have preferred the F-handle to be longer. At that length and using the largest socket, you have only about an18.5:1 mechanical advantage. There would certainly be enough room in the case for a 23" wrench.
There is a disclaimer printed on the inside of the case stating that this set s not to be used with impact equipment,
The hinges in the case are plastic but are the type with a fixed pin, so they won't wear out quickly as do the flex-type hinges. The four latches are somewhat difficult to fully latch and you may be fooled into thinking they are latched when they are not,
Both drives can be disassembled fairly easily, one with a c-clip remover and the other with an Allen wrench. Then the internal parts can be cleaned or replaced.
I used the set while working on a piece of heavy equipment and had no issues except for the short F-handle.
