Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by scribe Kind of nice to have
I didn't really need this, since I already have an impact wrench and own a manual ratchet wrench. But I have the rest of the Jobmax system so I figured why not complete it? I have used the ratchet once, but my manual socket wrench would have done the job. I suppose it will come in handy if I ever have a project with lots of bolts to tighten or if I need to tighten something in a spot that's too confined to wield a manual wrench. It seems well built like the rest of the Jobmax, and Rigid, gear. And the lifetime service agreement was easy to acquire online.

This makes a great electric ratchet. I have three and wish I had more, but you'll have discontinued this item!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hero Horrible customer servcie
The tool is very poorly made, and the customer service for the rigid is not helping at all even though the product was registered with them. They do not replace the product. Will Never buy rigid products again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by woodworker48066 great for around the house use
at this point i now have the entire set of accessories for the job max set, these work great for light duty things such as furniture assembly, cutting wood, driving in finish nails, tightening up loose bolts, etc.you would have to be crazy not to want this set, i was a little scared about this investment after reading some of the reviews on here, so i put mine through the test in my work shop. keep in mind it is 12 volts, you are not going to make a piece of furniture from scratch or repair your car with this tool, you wont drive a 3 or 4 inch nail through oak, but for all the small things you may need to do this ratchet and the other accessories are perfect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NormPeterson Great Price
Haven't used it much but the price was right so I bought it. I have tried it on new installations and it seems to work ok, I haven't tried it on a bolt that has been in place for a long time to see how it does removing something difficult. I have the 12 volt cordless base, I wonder if the corded base has more power.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ret1sg SHOULD GOT THIS SOME TIME AGO
This is one of those tools that you feel you don't need until you use it, and then you say were have you been all my life. some jobs you just need the right tool to make thing go right, and if you have a small area to work in this is your tool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ihave2manytools Great accessory head for the corded JobMax
With the corded version of the JobMax the Ratchet Head has PLENTY of power, in fact if you don't watch out when first using it, you can easily twist your wrist while holding on the JobMax when the nut/bolt has stopped turning and the entire tool tries to whip around.
And adjustable clutch is really needed to disengage the ratchet when a nut is tight and max torque has been reached, and that is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars .
So far, this tool head has worked on everything that I've tried it on, from rusted on 3/8" nuts to 5/16 x 6" lag bolts into 4x4's.
