Must have for DIY or professional mechanics!
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
It wont break loose rusted bolts if they are really stuck. But if you have tight spaces where you cant really pull your wrench this thing is amazing.

Must have for any automotive work
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
As a contractor, I have always been a fan of Milwaukee but have never actually dove into any of their cordless tools. For my birthday in March, I asked my fiancé for this cordless ratchet for hobby/diy mechanic work. It goes without saying that since she’s gotten me this, I won’t touch a vehicle unless I have it with my. Even more so, this product is what introduced me to M12 Fuel line. I now expand my Milwaukee tool collection nearly every week.

I purchased this tool for my daughter to use while working on my truck after she broke it. This is not comparable to any impact out there on the market and yes you can hold a socket with your fingers while depressing the trigger. This tool was not designed for heavy use or for snugging up bolts but rather to run them in or out. It did work perfectly for my F350 torx bolts in the column. Swapped out a shift tube in record time.

Great product
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
I install solar panels. The products I use usually require tons of little nuts and bolts to be tightened. I also use it on our roof jobs to tighten down panel clips. Product is wicked saves so much time.

Beats Snapon
I bought this ratchet back in the begining of the year and i have used it practicaly everday. I am a full time diesel mechanic and when comparing this to the snapon equivalent it is worth it for the money. The rpms are a little bit slower than other 3/8” ratchets in its category however it does put out the torque it says it does. The head is bulky on it and sometimes you cant quite get into tight spaces with it. When that happens i just grab my extended reach ratchet. For the price of the batteries, and the ratchet itself you cant beat it. Ive dropped this thing by accident and it hasnt cracked or stopped performing as well as it has the day i got it. For all of the M12 power tools milwaukee has it makes it even more worth it. I bought the 3.0 amp hour batteries to use with my other tools and when i use it with this ratchet it will last 3 days without having to charge it. I have wrenched on it pretty tough even after it stops tightening down bolts and it still has yet to break. The only downside i believe this ratchet has is it is a little bit bulkier than others and the fact that it has a lever versus a button but thats just personal preference to me. Definitly recomend it.

3/8 Fuel ratchet
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
I have used nothing but Snapon 14.4 and 18v tools since they came out. Now comparing this to the Snapon 3/8 ratchet it blows it out of the water. Stronger, battery lasts longer ,just a better product. Went all Milwaukee to replace Snapon.
