M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 3/8 in. Ratchet (Tool-Only) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 487.

I wanted the M18 version of this but none of the local stores carried it so I wound up getting this after seeing the specs indicate you can drill a 1" hole in wood with a spade bit. I tested it out with some Bosch Daredevil spade bits. The 1" bit bogged down a bit and it took multiple attempts of reversing and starting over to get the hole through. The 3/4" daredevil bit went through each time. I don't think I'd recommend purchasing this tool if you primarily intend to use it bore holes in framing. That's what the Milwaukee Hole Hawg is for. This is a nice right angle drill to use in tight spaces for driving screws with the occasional use of boring larger holes. I purchased a right angle adapter for a regular drill but that was garbage that stripped gears after the first or second hole. This works a lot better than that but it's not what you'd want to use to rough in a hole house. If you don't mind the wait of ordering the M18 version of this has more torque. I wound up getting this because it was in stock, I have M12 batteries and it should suit my needs. I'm running some communications cables and I have a larger Milwaukee cordless right angle drill to bore the larger main holes but I needed something small and light that could get into tight spaces so I can drill down through the top plate with a 1/2" or 5/8" bit to feed the wires down to the wall plate. This is working fine for that. The LED work light is very important and illuminates the drilling area well. I really like how it flashes red when it clutches out instead of turning with the clutch disengaged and making that annoying noise. It's a good right angle drill but I think the owner's manual is a little optimistic when it claims it can do 1" holes with a spade bit. 3/4" went fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of my top 5 tools. I have been a mechanic for over 30 years. The cordless tools are the best things to come along in a long time. When I started to look for a cordless ratchet, price and respectable name brand where the 2 most important factors. I tried the Snap On and Mac cordless ratchets. The physical size of both are twice the size of the Milwaukee and 4 times the price. I wanted a cordless ratchet to get into small places and this one I feel is the best on the market. The only draw back about this tool is the kind of low power. I say this because I am comparing it to the Snap On and Mac. Both are 18 ish volts and this is 12 volt. If you are going to buy this ratchet, you need to compare it to using a 6-7 inch long hand ratchet. The Snap On and Mac are like using a 14 inch long hand ratchet. This one gets into much smaller places and is vary easy to control. If the bolt is to tight, I just brake it loose by hand and get it the rest of the way with this ratchet. I have been using this ratchet for over a year now and have had no trouble with it. I love this tool and I use it almost every day. Being able to get into tight areas is the best thing about this tool. It makes up for the little less power than the other brands. I just bought the Milwaukee 3/8" drive M18 impact. Had to buy the 12/18 volt charger. So if you think you will ever buy another Milwaukee cordless tool you need to get the 12/18 volt charger so you can have a charger for both batteries.

More torque than you expect and battery lasts longer than expected as well. Works almost anywhere a manual ratchet does. No torque adjustment so be careful with small fasteners especially in aluminum or plastic. Portable and cuts job time significantly. Everyone should have one. My father in law has had one for years and it has performed like a star. I've invested in Ryobi tools and batteries for years and for years waited for them to come out with anything close to this. No such luck. I finally broke down and bought one.

I also use it at work and the battery lasts all day on the job. It's small and fits into many tight areas. It's lighter weight than many other drills (handy being on a ladder) and it's still powerful enough to do what I need it to do. I have used it for drilling into wood and drilling into metal. I haven't drilled into concrete or masonry yet, but I'm confident it can make the small holes I need to set a few bolts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far. I replaced an old 18v NiCd drill with this m12 Fuel kit. Initially, I was looking at more 18v drills, but I really like the compact size, and realized I could probably do 95% of the things I needed with this, if not everything. I'm not a contractor, just a homeowner doing DIY jobs. That being said, so far, these have been awesome.

This has saved my wrist from hours and hours of using hand ratches. Very light. It makes my job way more enjoyable. I dont know how I ever did things without it. I use it everyday.Love Milwaukee/
