The batteries don't take long to charge (1 hour or so) and the tool last all day on one battery. I professionally work on cars, so I put this tool to the test all day everyday. it takes the abuse and keeps on working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy I absolutely love this 1/4 inch drive Ratchet. It has as much power as my 3/8 cordless impact which isn't a Milwaukee(I wish it was) without the hammering. Perfect for working on cars where you need the smaller 1/4 extensions and sockets powerful enough to do the job.
Date published: 2019-08-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This ratchet is making me rethink air tools. I’ve used this ratchet for everything from valve covers to differential covers. It’s hasn't stopped since I purchased it. I can’t say enough about how much I love this ratchet. If your thinking about switching, don’t think just switch. My next buy is the 3/8 ratchet.
Date published: 2019-09-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product needs the drive set available I've yet to use the tool since I bought it months ago. I thought Milwaukee would have a drive set available for the product. I know I can just buy any set to use it. However everything I use in my truck is Milwaukee and I'd like to keep it that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I'm a motorcycle tech and use this rachet constantly its got great torque but easy to control and nice and quiet! Ive been upgrading all of my air tools to milwaukee brusless tools so far they have all out performed there pneumatic counterparts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. I use this 1/4" ratchet at work all the time. My air ratchet just sits in the drawer. Power and battery life is great. Going to buy a 3/8 ratchet since this one works so good. So much more freedom than being tied to an air hose all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would definitely by this ratchet again. This is a great cordless tool for the money. It has decent power after the initial break free of the fastener.only downfall would be it is bulkier than the non fuel model and some of the other competition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product I really like the product. It is very compact for hard to reach spots for my profession. The only downside is after a good amount of time using it. It gets hot and you’re able to smell like burning oil.
Date published: 2019-09-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome addition to my tool box. I use it everyday as a Auto Tech in a Dealership. It has plenty of torque and not having a square battery pack in the end makes it great for interior work as well as under hood work.
