Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reasonable purchase Charged the new battery, when fully charged reading was only 8 volts instead 12 as stated. Though it works well with the tool. August 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love it... Have had for over 4 years now and still kicking. Does lack in torque a bit but that's why it ratchets. Put some elbow grease into it guys. Use it daily as a heavy equipment mechanic and won't ever go back to air. August 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well but wished it was 1/4 inch drive Worked great for my project fits in tight spaces has plenty of power only regret is that I wished the had it in 1/4 drive instead as it is hard to use adapter for smaller sockets and get clearance February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cordless ratchet Much better than the Rigid model... I use it for automotive repair. September 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Most Handy Tool When certain conditions arise and my hands are in awkward positions, this tool relieves the stress and strain and makes the job much easier. Thanks Milwaukee tools! November 3, 2012
