Product Overview

Details

The Milwaukee 1/4 in. Cordless M12 Lithium-Ion Ratchet Kit 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-in 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.
  • 3/4 in. low profile head allows for easier use in tight spaces
  • Reinforced housing for maximum durability
  • Lightweight for easy maneuverability
  • 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 on the ratchet and a 2-Year REDLITHIUM Warranty on the battery
  • Part of the M12 System of over 90 tools

I use it for automotive use it is good for tight spaces strong enough for what I am using it for . It would be good to have more than one battery, battery life is not very long but recharge time is fast less than an hour. Great tool.

Excellent tool!
I must say this little Ratchet is amazing! I am an aircraft maintenance technician and I absolutely love this. I previously had a skil rechargeable ratchet. It was underpowered, the battery would barely hold a charge, and quite frankly it was garbage compared to this one. This tool has excellent battery life,comes with a great case, and it also has a variable speed switch so you can operate it slowly without having to worry about snapping a bolt or stud. Definitely worth every penny! If you are on the fence about purchasing this just go ahead and take the plunge.. you won't regret it! (I was not paid to write this review so rest assured it is unbiased)

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 120 days.
