Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 3 out of 5 by Returned before leaving the store. I didn't realize it came with no batteries or charger so I couldn't use it and HD didn't carry separate chargers - you have to buy a kit with many items I did not want to pay for at that time. Recommending only if you have batteries and charger and don't need high torque - after re-reading the specs, I'm not sure if it would have freed the bolt I couldn't get to (limited manual wrench swing room) as it may not have enough torque. The same would apply to tightening. The multi-speed switch it has is also what I wanted. August 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by M12 cordless ratchet I work in a ATV, motorcycle shop and require the use of an air ratchet a lot. I purchased the Milwaukee cordless 3/8 ratchet because one another mechanic in the shop has been using one now for a year without any issues at all. I really like not having to drag the air hose around. Not as strong as the air ratchet but you know that so choose your spots. Now I use the cordless 90% of the time. April 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great wrench i love it makes work so much easier and the replaceable battery's means you can keep working longer August 7, 2014
