Answer: 
Yes, it will readily handle cutting 2×4's.
As for battery consumption, that depends on:
Battery: Standard or XC
Blade selection
If user pushes the saw aggressively or lets the saw do the work.
I use the XC batteries and have experienced good battery life span as long as I don't get impatient, admittedly a personal challenge from time to time.

Answer: 
I can't answer this absolutely, but I will say that the impact tool does very well at sinking over-sized screws in hardened wood, so I would believe that automotive sheet metal wouldn't prove overly challenging. I wish I could give you a better answer.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 138 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by call it "airless" purchased this for tooling on my bikes...so worth it June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very useful and a lot of power! This little ratchet is amazing it is not a joke. I was wondering how much power it could have for a 12v but it can drive 1/4" lag screws through wood with no problem. great for automotive work like working under the car with limited space to turn a manual ratchet or even for removing spark plugs. The quality is great and the 5 year warranty cannot be beat! Oh I wanted to add you would think it would be big and bulky but the head is actually smaller than a conventional 3/8 ratchet May 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3/8 IN. RATCHET This thing is awesome. I bought it before I replaced injectors on my 7.3. It was extremely handy where continual ratcheting would normally be required. It made a 3 hour job take 45 minutes. The 30 lb. ft. torque is nice because you don't have to worry about over-torquing anything unless it is below 30 lb.ft. The ratcheting mechanism almost works as an impact the way it jerks around to remove tight fasteners. I bought an M12 4x battery in addition to the 2x. I would recommend the larger battery on amazon because it allows the tool to sit upright when not in use. Buy this tool, it will change your abilities for the better!!! February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Works as intended.... Wish they made it with higher torque, Close to a hundred would be better than 35 but all in all its a keeper April 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Surprising Performance I challenged the tool right out of the box to help me remove a stubborn outdoor deck bracket with hopelessly frozen mounting screws. As a long time owner of a contractor grade Fein Multi-master corded tool I was curious if this smaller cordless tool could handle this type of application. I mounted a well used Bosch carbide tip metal cutting blade from my Fein Toolbox and secured it for operation using the Milwaukee supplied adapter to fit most blades available from other similar tools. I was able to cleanly and quickly slice through the metal screws and remove the bracket without needing to drag out an extension cord. While the M12 is not for heavy duty use such as all day cutting jobs or those that require cutting heavy metal, this M12 tool is winner and a real value that belongs in DiYer's and homeowners toolboxes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by M12 12-VOLT LITHIUM-ION CORDLESS 3/8 IN. RATCHET great product. love it. works like a champ would recommend it to anyone February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as good as it was expected too The ratchet works smoothly and for its size is good for semi small spaces. January 19, 2016
