Great Ratchet but weak anvil
I love Milwaukee tools and I have not been let down by any Milwaukee tools I have purchased until now. I previously purchased the M12 FUEL 3/8" Ratchet (2557-20) last year and absolutely love it. I have been working with it every day without fail. So, I decided to check out the extended reach 1/4" version for those harder to reach spots. On the second day of use, I was taking off a bracket with a 10mm socket and with hardly any pressure, the 1/4" anvil twisted off like it was made of plastic. The M12 FUEL 1/4" Extended Reach Ratchet has plenty of power and its reach is fantastic, but be careful of how much pressure you place on the tool, because the anvil can't take much. I do recommend this tool, but limit the use to very small work loads or get the 3/8 version.

    We work on exmilitary trucks in the shop. These trucks are old, not always well serviced, and multiple layers of paint over most of the hardware. Not an issue for this tool. I like the extended reach for getting into tighter places as well. Many places a regular ratchet just wouldn't be able to swing.

    This ratchet is great.Makes quick work of running out and tightening bolts.Just enough torque; and you can still use it like a regular ratchet for additional torque.So good I ended up getting the 3/8" drive one as well. Light weight and the battery lasts a pretty good time.

      I have always wanted a wrench that I could count on that had some power. I tried air and corded but some were to big and bulky to get into tight places. Then Milwaukee came out with their different sizes. I use the 1/4 inch extended reach wrench and so far I have had no problems with it loosening or tightening bolts or putting screws (with the proper attachment) in tight places. I was surprised at the power this wrench has. I have had to really hold on to this rascal because it will get out of your hands if your not careful, cause it has that much power. Don't let the 1/4 inch size fool you. It has the power to do more. It is a great asset to have when working with bolts or nuts in a small space. No more knuckle busting!! It gets right in there and powers the bolt or nut off and out. I love using this tool cause it has a million uses when it comes to fitting tight places. Great tool to add to my metal shop and my wood shop. Milwaukee has come a long way and they really are producing some very good tools for the DIY'er and the professional.

      If you do a lot of wrench work the Milwaukee M12 FUEL, 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless, Cordless 3/...
      If you do a lot of wrench work the Milwaukee M12 FUEL, 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless, Cordless 3/8-inch Extended Reach Ratchet belongs in your toolbox. The kit comes with a M12 battery charger and 2 Ah battery. Also provided with the kit, is nice soft case with Velcro loops to hold the ratchet, battery charger and battery in place when transported. I think the Milwaukee 3/8-inch extended ratchet is the perfect powered ratchet size for a first-time purchase. Milwaukee also makes a ¼ inch and ½ inch size of ratchet. However, with the proper adapter the 3/8-inch drive can easily be used with ¼ inch and ½ inch sockets (of course no adapter is required for 3/8 sockets). I took a picture of a tiny 5/32-inch socket mounted on 3/8” x ¼ “adapter on the extended ratchet. I included in the picture a 1-1/8” socket with a ½ inch drive mounted on a 3/8” x ½” inch adapter. This picture shows the versatility of the 3/8-inch drive Milwaukee ratchet. The 3/8-inch extended ratchet provides 55 ft./lbs. of torque (the 1/4-inch drive ratchet produces 40 ft./lbs of torque and the ½ inch drive ratchet produces 60 ft./lbs.). In my way of thinking this makes the 3/8 inch drive the perfect place to start. Also, the 3/8 extended drive ratchet can reach further out to a bolt when you are working. There is a 4-inch difference in length between the new extended reach 3/8-inch ratchet and the original Milwaukee 3/8-inch ratchet (2457-20) that I previously purchased. The new 3/8” extended ratchet has a cast steel yoke and slim profile head. A rubber boot is also available for purchase to protect the drive end of the ratchet, if the ratchet is receiving extensive use. The rotational direction of the ratchet is changed on the head end just like a manual ratchet. There is an on/off safety switch in front of the squeeze trigger to prevent accident startup. An LED light is pointed at the socket location and turns on when the trigger is pulled. So, lose the air hose required by your pneumatic ratchet if you have one. There is no more need to drag around an air hose and have it getting in the way. No more lube oil required by a pneumatic ratchet. I would recommend this new M12 Fuel Ratchet to a DIYer or a professional mechanic. I’m sure you’ll will enjoy your new purchase if you make one.

      I'm a convert, can't understand how I've made it this far in life without one of these. I will admit, I'm a bit of a Milwaukee fanboy, but this is a great tool. The kit comes with a soft carry case, a charger, one battery, and the tool itself. Upon initially holding it I was concerned it's pretty heavy. Think about how you hold a manual socket wrench and then understand you would hold this the same way. I was very concerned about the weight putting stress on my hand and wrist, but those concerns were brushed aside when I actually used it. Yes it is heavy, but it will drive or loosen a bolt so quickly you don't really need to hold it for very long, reducing the stress caused by the weight issue. I was blow away by how quickly this was able to secure a bolt for me when I was installing a bike rack on my trailer hitch. This is fast, powerful, and easy to use. It won't be appropriate for all situations, but if you find yourself with a ratchet in had on a somewhat regular basis you should consider one of these.

      Finally a top quality brushless, cordless ratchet wrench in a kit form. It comes with the 12 volt cordless 3/8" ratchet, a 12 volt lithium Ion battery known as M12, a charger for any M12 batteries you have and a beautifully made heavy duty carry case. The real test is in the use.This ratchet is an extended design to get into hard to reach places. And it have almost 55 pounds of torque. It's perfect for the garage and automotive repair. I love mine, a real time saver.

      In the process of reviewing the Milwaukee M12 FUEL 12-VOLT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 3/8 inch Extended Reach Ratchet Kit with One 2.0 Amp Hour Battery I took an opportunity to replace the brakes on one of our farm trucks. Having experience with pneumatic air ratchets for many years helped with this review for a clear comparison between what is new technology vs. clearly old. While I do not believe air supply will be eliminated in near from the everyday shop environment, battery technology has evolved to where I utilize the air compressor very little from yesteryear. This extended reach ratchet allows for more leverage when removing fasteners. It also allows for reach into those places where you could not before. The rubber over-mold grip is nice and I like the 4-LED lights that indicate battery level. There is a trigger lock-out and when the ratchet meets its limit, keep the trigger depressed and continue ratcheting just like a manual ratchet. Two thumbs up Milwaukee!

      Powerful Time Saver I was skeptical of the need and usefulness of a powered ¼” ratchet. I’m now a believer and going to keep this in my main tool bag, despite its size. Milwaukee has done a nice job creating a large ecosystem of cordless power tools that share their “M12 Fuel” system. I’ve got a few and the M12 lithium batteries are interchangeable. This tool has an LED light to help illuminate the work, it reserves just like a standard ratchet, has a low-profile head to enable it to get into tight spaces and has a good length. The provides a surprisingly good amount of torque too, it’s not a replacement for an impact wrench, but provides plenty as a ratchet. The tool provides a quick way to tighten or loosen fasteners, a lot faster than the traditional time saver; a regular ratchet, which makes it 100 times better than a regular wrench. It comes with a battery and charger, the case it came in was defective, the handle was only stitched on one side. Not a big deal for me as it’s going in my tool bag. It’s a little heavy but well balanced and it’s a pricey addition to your tool box, but if you work a lot with nuts and bolts, this tool is a real time saver!
