Powerful!
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
I purchased this ratchet about a year ago after seening a snap-on version. My friend said how much it was and stuff. Well I picked this up, a lot cheaper and more powerful then his 14.4v one. It's definitely a win-win with this tool. Milwaukee never let's me down. A great tool for any tool box. The ratchet is a bit powerful especially if your coming off a brushed one. I added the protective cover shortly after buying the tool.

As a auto body tech, i demand a lot from my tools. I had the snap on cordless 14v ratchet. It had to be rebuilt the first year i had it and a few months ago the driver snapped off the head. At $400 for less than 2 years i decided to try the m12 fuel cordless ratchet and i could not be more pleased. This tools is every bit of the snap on if not better. The smaller batteries are good for tight workspace but they dont last long. I change the battery daily. Not a big deal if you have a few

I’ve been looking for a quality 1/4” cordless ratchet for a while now and I’m happy to say I found it. I work on classic cars as a hobby and lately I have been running into a lot of situations where I could have used such a wrench. I got this wrench as a birthday gift earlier this year and it has to rank as one of the best gifts I ever received. Although this wrench is as long as a 3/8” air ratchet, it has a small head to get into tight areas and you don’t have the air line in your way. I was very surprised with the torque. 40ft. lbs is major and you have to be careful when using it for the lighter stuff. But that is easy with the variable speed trigger which is easy to use once you get used to it. Battery life is great for its small size and can be monitored with the 4 level meter on the side of the tool. What’s nice is that the tool comes with a second battery and they charge pretty quick. This is the first Milwaukee fuel tool I’ve ever used (I have mostly Dewalt) and if the others are anything like this I’ll be buying more.
