The head of the tool is 30mm wide and 28mm deep without a socket installed. Overall the tool is 275mm long and about 64mm in diameter.

Does it have different sizes ratchet heads included

Asked by Rick October 3, 2018
5
Answers

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?

Asked by DC June 3, 2018
5
Answers

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.

Does the battery also fit in a 3/8?

Produces good torque for a 1/4" ratchet. Exceeds my expectations for a 12v tool. I bought this for field work on aircraft where an air hose is a pain to run. It gets in fairly tight spaces and.it beats having to wave a ratchet standing on my head. I'm sure this will be just as dependable as my Snap-off air ratchet which is now collecting dust! I'm now looking at the M12 drill and impact tools.

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.

This 90° battery ratchet is great tool to have in arsenal against misbehaved machines; run down torque is between 30in/lb up to 120in/lb on full charge, so handle with care if you dont want to fook sheet up.
