Do u make a 12volt 3/8" variable speed ratchet that reverses?

Asked by: Sparky
Forward/reverse is chosen via the selector in the head. Speed is determined by how much you pull the trigger. It's definitely as fast as my corresponding 12V impact, but that's not very concerning to me.

M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 3/8 in. Ratchet (Tool-Only) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 455.

I'm a Master Plumber and this little tool was a game changer. It makes cutting copper to fast and easy. It will also get into places between joists, studs, and corners where even a tiny hand cutter won't go, or will only go reluctantly. This tool speeds up jobs and get's me on to the next task. Time is money, and this thing is money in the bank. I personally own two of them and all my helpers have invested in them too. It's nice that the battery is interchangeable with other Milwaukee tools. I also recommend the M12 blower which is another great tool that makes things fast and easy. My only gripe is that the battery will short out and fry the tool if you get it too wet. Over the years I've burned out two of these. Having said that, I get it wet all the time (dozens upon dozens of times) and it takes a good bit of water to kill it. I wish Milwaukee would find a way to make it water proof. Even with the water issue, this is still an innovative and awesome tool.

This has saved my wrist from hours and hours of using hand ratches. Very light. It makes my job way more enjoyable. I dont know how I ever did things without it. I use it everyday.Love Milwaukee/

I'm a mechanic and this tool makes getting skid plates and air filers a simple task. I love how light yet powerful it is. I love the LED light for working under cars. I have always trusted the Milwaukee brand, so this was a no-brainer for me. My advice is get a second battery as back-up.

The description indicates that his tool will cut down to a 3/8, that’s a lie. Seeing that my work(HVAC) consists of mainly 3/8 and 3/4 copper tubing, you’d think that this would be the perfect product to help make the job easier and more efficient. And then There is Home Depot, who has done nothing to make this right. I thought these stores once stood for something like integrity and leadership, but all they want to do is take your money and give you grief if something on THEIR end is not right.

Works great on copper, It automatically detects the pipe size, so not only is constant readjustment eliminated, it will not deform the pipe due to impatience of over tightening the tubing cutter. Blades are not deep enough to cut CPVC or PEX I had to know, so I did try it on a piece of EMT conduit. After 10 seconds, it barely scored it, so obviously don't use it for that. In all fairness, it is only advertised as a copper cutter, and it does cut copper well. A plumbing contractor could justify using this to save time. But unless you just wanted that new cool toy, I mean tool, I would not recommend it for the occasional home DIY'er as it is a bit pricey for as much use they would get out of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Torque You would have thought a wrench that looks like this would loosen tight bolts and tighten bolts. It doesn't. It's great for quickly removing bolts and nuts once loosened and great for running down loose bolts and nuts. Initial loosening and final tightening relies on using the wrench as a ratchet handle. I sure wish it worked like an impact driver.

I bought the impact and ratchet combo online, i wish they could have just let me get all the pieces of this combo in one of my local stores. Both the batteries lasts longer than expected and the impact and ratchet works very well. light and small in the hand which makes them both easy to work with. if you are considering purchasing i would definitely recommending it, do yourself a favor and look at all the M-12 tools they offer, there is much more than what is just in the stores.
