Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very handy Love the m12 rachet. Comes in handy on the roof helping make the job a bit quicker adding just the right amount of torque. Only complaint is I wish it had an easier reverse on it instead of the old school of the old type of rachets with the spin dial. April 17, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not For Serious Use. Head Breaks or Strips This thing was brilliant for a month of hard but repectful use. Then one day "POP" and it was all over. Tool still spins but not the socket.. The tool is great for spinning in and out fasteners, but NEVER attempt to use it to break fasteners loose or provide final torque. The ratchet mechanism in the head will implode. Needs improvement before I will consider getting another. I hope Milwaukee fixes this because otherwise it would be a phenomenal tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by very handy It is a life and time saver in tight places where you can't move a ratchet like changing spark plugs. It would be even better if Milwaukee would make it with an adjustable angle head. The only downside is there is no torque power for loosening bolts, you have to loosen it before the wrench will spin it out. November 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by THE NEW TOOL Used it on the job at work. Where I would usually have a 3/8" air ratchet, I used this cordless ratchet. NO HASSLE due to NO AIR LINE ! ! Plenty of power to remove the fasteners. October 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by really good idea money well spent, use it everyday has good battery life October 28, 2014
