Does it have different sizes ratchet heads included

Does it have different sizes ratchet heads included
Asked by: Rick
Negative, the heads are set. But they do make a 3/8 model as well. Not sure of a 1/2 though. But adapters are a thing and inexpensive too. Definitely a must have tool in my opinion.

I need to attach a 15/16 socket for this. Will it fit or can I use an adapter socket?

I need to attach a 15/16 socket for this. Will it fit or can I use an adapter socket?
Asked by: DC
If you need to use a 15/16 socket (or 24mm) then you should look at the 3/8ths version of this tool. I'm assuming your socket is 1/2in. You could then use a 3/8th to 1/2in adapter.

M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/4 in. Ratchet Kit w/ (1) 1.5Ah Battery, Charger and Tool Bag is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 176.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ! I am a professional auto mechanic of 16 years. After my trusty air ratchet took a dump I decided to try and find a comparable battery model. Looking at the offerings of tool truck brands I decided on this Milwaukee based mainly on the speed. 250rpm compared to 150-175rpm of others and the torque rating of 30 ft/lb (I won't even mention the price difference over tool truck offerings!). This ratchet is as fast and as strong as the air ratchet it replaced. The torque limiting function took a bit to get use to. It just stops dead. No kick back or twisting your hand into sharp things. And while it's probably not recommended, I have used it to break bolts lose with no ill effect. I have used it daily for over a month. The battery last through several jobs and recharges in a reasonably quick amount of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milwaukee cordless 1/4" ratchet I really like my cordless ratchet. It has enough power to get the job done, spins nuts & bolts quickly and relatively quietly. It's nice to not have an airline attached to a powered ratchet, and this one has a light that no pneumatic ratchet has. A nice feature of the Milwaukee is the light stays on for about 10 seconds after operation, unlike some electric drivers where the light is only on when squeezing the trigger. Minor downsides: It is a bit larger than I wanted, it won't get into very tight spaces like a pneumatic 1/4" can, and the body is big if you have small hands. However, no airline is a big bonus, especially for underdash work in automotive repair. I'm an ASE Master, L1 certified auto mechanic for 25 years, and I can tell a quality tool when I use one and I recommend this ratchet if you need something like this. I can see how I could use it in many ways around the house also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First rate device - does all I expected of it I have recently committed myself to a move from plug in or manual devices to battery powered devices and after some research selected Milwaukie power tools, This kit was the latest (and probably the last for a while). I am not a heavy user, being a home fixer/tinkerer rather than a professional artisan, and these tools are very efficient, reliable and easy to use. Recharging all types of batteries for M12 & M18 devices is fast and the charge lasts much longer that I expected. The tools a nicely designed, sturdy, and seem very well structured ergonomically, and I can use them for a couple of hours a time with no fatigue in my hands, although he bigger batteries are quite heavy and can sometimes unbalance the tools, These tools seem nigh on perfect for home use, and have stood up well to the current remodeling and repair work I'm undertaking on my current house. These devices are fully compatible with all my existing socket sets, etc.
