Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by M12 1/4 in ratchet I am a professional mechanic I use the tool many times per day . Very impressed , almost as much power as my $350 snapon 1/4 in air ratchet but much easier to use , no air hose , and the light is really usefull. Holds a charge for a couple of days and rechages quickly. I have a couple of M12 tools that I use every day they are all great. January 25, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good , not to good for everyday use I'm a bodyman, and use my tools all day everyday. the first one I bought lasted about 2 weeks , returned it and got another , it's going good so far but feels like it's starting to slip March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by you won't regretted !!! Been using my boss ratchet for over a year, and when I said using means using it for everything 8hrs a day, then he start crying about getting it back, so I decided to get mine, this tool had 3 years so I decide to get mine before something happens. I totally recommend this product, Milwaukee makes awesome tools, what I most like about this products is that they are compact and its fit in most tight spaces on the auto industry February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice for tight spots Very happy with this ratchet. It's powerful enough for the size fasteners you'd use a 1/4" drive on. Light is nice for up into some of the dark areas you can get this thing in. Places where it's a hassle with an air hose attached. Recommended. April 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Tool Fit in tight spot, decent power, has a built in light. A little slower than some others on the market but those are also 3x the cost. February 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Ratchet I like this alit and also have the 3/.8 drive. The 1/4 is more useful as it doesn't have a ton of torque for tightening /loosening 3/8 drive stuff. March 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great tool overal At first when I opened it up out of the package I thought it was too bulky.But started using it and found out it wasnt has more power then I expected.Works great for taking apart dashes removing wheel liners battery's etc.Overall I really like the tool if your thinking about getting one just do it you wont be sorry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comparable to any 1/4'' air ratchet Super handy tool for any autobody technician. Hanging doors/hoods/fenderliners etc... All without dragging a air hose over that freshly painted fender or immaculate interior. Has the same power as any 1/4'' air ratchet i've ever come across. Mine looks like it's been through hell and back after a couple years of hard use, but still works just as well as the day I bought it. LED light with 4-5 second timer is very nice too, when working in a dark tight spot. You'll wonder how you ever worked without one after using it for a couple days. November 22, 2013
