      Q:Why is it that the rotating head gets hotter pretty quickly when you have said that the brushless motor is cooler than the non brushless. I tried to run the ratchet without load for 45 sec. continuously and it get hotter pretty quick. Please explain why??

          M12 Ratchet
          Ive owned this ratchet for a while now and it has been through alot, I even dropped it into a swimming pool and it spent 5 mins completely submerged in water When i got it out and dried it off it still worked perfectly fine. This tool has been my most used tool and it just keeps going.

            Needs Improvement
            Owned 5.0 HO for 5 months and one the tabs already broke. Broke from normal installing and removing of the battery. This new gray plastic is weaker. My old 6.0 batteries are still good. Sent in for warranty and Milwaukee denied. Not buying these HO anymore.

              I already have great tools. The extra battery keeps me working nonstop. Fits my M12 tools. Newer battery technology.

              The item functions great for about 1-2 minutes. Then it bogs to a miserable creep. 5 - 6 batteries later just to produce (2) 2x3 aluminum parts. Over heating perhaps a hand full of times. Otherwise cute tool

              The ratchet is a life saver working on or under or in a car engine. I got the ratchet free by purchasing the M12 battery pack charger Combo kit combo kit. Excellent tool . Check out the on going package purchases at THE HOMEDEPOT before purchasing.

              Tool Great, Battery Connector Terrible
              I've used this cutoff saw for more than 2 years. It's a great little tool that works very well on sheet metal, tiles and thin masonry. My only gripe is, and it's a big one, is the design of the release mechanism to remove the battery case from the tool's handle. Pinching 2 stiff plastic cutouts on the battery case, see photos, should move locking tabs inside the tool handle. It's a poorly-designed setup that requires a lot of pinching force, and it often fails.

                The battery performed really well, the batteries got plenty of power and a nice compact size. I’m definitely a fan of the m12 lineup.
