I just received this ratchet and I am concerned there may be something wrong with it. It appears to work but I can hold the anvil in place with my fingers alone with the trigger fully depressed and the tool spinning at top speed. Is this normal? Should it not engage so that I cannot hold it in place by hand?
Asked by: Sicotic
no that is perfectly normal, use it to torque a bolt then use a regular ratchet to remove it and you will notice it is very tight 55 ft/lbs

Is there enough power to remove vehicle wheel lug nuts?

No, not when they are fully tightened to manufacturer specs which is usually in the area of 100 foot pounds.

M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 3/8 in. Ratchet (Tool-Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 638.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These new M12 FUEL ratchets are a huge upgrade over the older Gen 1 Milwaukee ratchets. This 3/8"... These new M12 FUEL ratchets are a huge upgrade over the older Gen 1 Milwaukee ratchets. This 3/8" model jumped from 35 ft*lbs of torque to 55 ft*lbs with the brushless motor upgrade of the Gen 2. That's a 57% increase in torque, now comparable to most pneumatic ratchets! The tool length is just about perfect for the power output too. Any shorter and it wouldn't be easily controllable. As it is, I dropped the ratchet the first time I used it, because it kicked much harder than I anticipated when using it on a stuck nut. You do need to be a little careful with smaller fasteners too. I wasn't paying close enough attention and sheared an M6 screw head right off while using the ratchet with a 10mm socket. So for smaller fasteners, I now use the powered ratchet to get it driven most of the way on, and then finish it manually for more control. It's great being able to use this tool whichever way suits the purpose. If you need a little more torque than the tool can supply to break loose or tighten down a fastener, you can use it manually for that purpose too.

I'm a automotive/diesel master tech with 30 years experience on equipment from small engine repair up to tractor trailers and construction equipment. I've used many tools in the field and most are heavy duty air tools. I tried this cordless ratchet out because the price was right and I needed a smaller ratchet to get into tight places without having to fight with an air hose or cord. This fit the bill perfectly!!!! I was surprised at how much power (55 ft. lbs.) and how well built it is, all in a small package. I opted for the 3/8" over 1/4" because I needed more power. The 1/2" has 60 ft. lbs. of torque but defeats the purpose for what I need by being larger and longer. I can always use a 3/8" to 1/2" impact adapter with a 1/2" socket if need be. I was also surprised at how long the battery lasts. It's nice to be able to walk over to the parked equipment and complete a job with out starting a compressor or generator in a service truck. You save fuel, wear and tear, less noise and no pollution. To Milwaukee, your doing things right!!!!! Keep up the quality, power and price and you will have a customer for life. Home Depot shipped it fast and undamaged with no problems. Good information on the tool. Nice job to everyone!!!!

I work as a automotive technician, ive only used it a few times so far because I've only had it a few days but I love it. Its 55ft/lbs of torque is just right for what I do. Its fast and holds a charge. Also it does not seem to loose power when the battery gets weak by it's easy to read battery indicator lights.

It has insane torque. If you get it in a tight space, just pull the lever and the work is done for you, no single click movements that waste time and energy. Recommended to anyone.

I’ve never cared much for the pneumatic ratchets as they never seemed to have enough torque or speed needed. This thing has both. The LED is especially handy, just tap the paddle switch and you got light to see which fastener your aiming for. Highly recommend it.

The carrying case is good for shipping but not much else for my purposes. Glad I sprang for the brushless Fuel series. Research revealed the cheaper model is a few years old design with a lot more negative reviews.
