M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/4 in. Ratchet Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Must order this one The M12 cordless 1/4" ratchet kit is not sold in the Home Depot stores. So you are unable to see and handle the item before you buy. if you want it from Home Depot you must ordered it from them first before you're able to handle the unit. I did order the item since they do not display the item in their stores. The item does what it claims to do, the price is fair for the product received. we will see how it holds up long-term.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milwaukee m12 review This is a tool that i use all day long. I am a mechanic by tradetrade so this tool is being used constantly for 8 hours a day 5 days a week . I have only charged the battery 4 times in the nonth that I have used the tool. I have built work around it by buying torx and tamper torx which has increased my speed of getting jobs complete to half the time. I am planning on purchasing another battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great tool. This is a very effective tool within its limits. I saw reviews where they use it as manual ratchet to break the initial torque of a nut or bolt before engaging the electric drive. I contacted Milwaukee and they recommend not using it as a manual ratchet as the handle is plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I work in the Autobody field. Let's just say the last one of these I bought lasted six years. That's hard to beat for an electric tool you use everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant beat it Use it more than my air ratchet due to its hoseless operation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ratchet I use these at work everyday. They are well made and work really good. I do bodywork for a living and they work wonderfully for removing and replacing parts. I bought a 3/8 and a 1/4 for home use I liked them so well. You have to understand the limitations of any tool. For example you wouldn't use a 1/4 ratchet to tighten lug nuts. As long as these ratchets are used for there respectful purpose I feel that one would last for many years. My only gripe is the battery charge time as I am used to a 15 min charge from my makita tools but they still charge within a reasonable time. Great product, worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool & highly recommend. 1 of the best tools 2 have! It really works great & u can get into places that 1 that uses an air hose won't allow, this 1 will help in getting the job done well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ! I am a professional auto mechanic of 16 years. After my trusty air ratchet took a dump I decided to try and find a comparable battery model. Looking at the offerings of tool truck brands I decided on this Milwaukee based mainly on the speed. 250rpm compared to 150-175rpm of others and the torque rating of 30 ft/lb (I won't even mention the price difference over tool truck offerings!). This ratchet is as fast and as strong as the air ratchet it replaced. The torque limiting function took a bit to get use to. It just stops dead. No kick back or twisting your hand into sharp things. And while it's probably not recommended, I have used it to break bolts lose with no ill effect. I have used it daily for over a month. The battery last through several jobs and recharges in a reasonably quick amount of time.
