Product Overview

Details

The Milwaukee 1/4 in. Cordless M12 Lithium-Ion Ratchet features best in class power, speed, and durability in a small yet powerful package. Its durable motor provides 30 ft-lbs. of torque at 250 RPM to handle most jobs with ease, and its compact design gives the user better maneuverability in smaller, tighter work spaces. A metal variable speed trigger gives the user precise speed control for any application, and since it's powered by Milwaukee's REDLITHIUM technology, it also runs with a longer lifespan for more use and less charging. The ratchet is built with reinforced housing for extra durability, and also comes equipped with a built-ion LED to light dimly lit work areas and a built-in battery fuel gauge that displays the remaining run time.
Features:
  • Compact yet powerful design delivers 30 ft-lbs. of torque at 250 RPM
  • Lightweight for easy maneuverability
  • 3/4 in. low profile head allows for easier use in tight spaces
  • Reinforced housing for maximum durability
  • Variable speed metal trigger gives the user precise speed control
  • On-board fuel gauge displays remaining run time
  • Built-in LED light allows for work in dimly lit areas
  • Includes a 5-Year Manufacturer Warranty
Includes:
  • M12 1/4 in. Cordless Lithium-Ion Ratchet (Bare Tool) - 2456-20
  • Bare Tool - Battery and Charger Sold Separately

Ditch the airhose
Saw this recommended by diesel tech Ron, RIP. Dont know how I worked without it, just as powerful as my 1/4 air ratchet, bigger overall but not fighting the airhose is a huge plus, great for interior work as well

I use this all the time and absolutely love it. Probably my best invested in power tools aside from my 1/4 hex impact driver. Almost wish I purchased this before my impact driver, because I pretty much use this for anything I used the impact driver for, but nice to have a second tool for other size hardware and easier to reach places. Like some of my other reviews, I love the fact I no longer have an air hose to deal with, especially when I'm rolling around on a creeper underneath a vehicle. Battery life is amazing, it isn't used all day as I am doing different tasks of the full job, but I only charge the 2.0 battery maybe once a week. Only thing I regret is the fact the news that the Fuel version is coming out soon.

Great Little Ratchet
I bought this ratchet to use in my motorcycle shop. It has come in very handy getting into tight spaces, and for speeding up work. The batteries last a long time, and the power is pretty good. It would be nice if it had more torque, but its pretty good for its size.

Handy dandy tool yo
Been using this tool for about 2 weeks now and this little baby right here is perfect for getting in those tight areas around wheelhouses and cars low to the ground. Has made my job much easier. Decent strength, good battery life, a nice bright led to see what you're doing and a comfortable grip.

Super tool
This ratchet beats draging out the compressor and hoses to do a simple job. I just keep lt on my work bench. I have several 12 volt lithium ion tools that all use same batteries and charger. It is nice to need just 1 charger on my work bench.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
