Product Overview

Details

The Milwaukee 3/8 in. Cordless M12 Lithium-Ion Ratchet features best in class power, speed, and durability in a small yet powerful package. Its durable motor provides 35 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. It's 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 35 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
  • Part of the M12 System of over 90 tools

Incredible worksaver, if only the switch would turn easier!
I have major arthritus, so this is a lifesaver for me. Saves me so much ratcheting! Battery lasts a really long time between charges. Only wish that the direction switch would turn without the need for pliers. Even after cleaning and lubricating, it is notchy and requires pliers to turn. Curious if I have a bad one, or if other people have had similar experience and if there is a solution??

Best Cordless Tool in the Box
I already own the 1/4 Impact Driver Set and love it. I wanted this ratchet the first time I saw it used by a mechanic using it in his garage. I bought this 3/8 ratchet kit and ordered a 4.0 Ah battery to go with it. This tool especially comes in handy at a U Pull It Auto Salvage Yard as well as in the shop. I especially like how you can flip the switch and break loose stuck nuts and bolts. It sure is nice for those long winded bolts too. lol

A quality tool.
Nice tool. Compact and easy to use. Only complaint is that the knob to change directions is small and sometimes hard to use in gloves. Otherwise, a good tool. Btw, the ratcheting function is great.

I bought the ratchet to initially work on car repair, but continue to use it anywhere I can. It is a little heavy, but given it's power and capability it's worth the weight.

A good tool that gets you away from the airline umbilical.
I use it for hard to get to areas in the engine bays of my vehicles.
It is a very powerful tool for being a 12 volt unit.

Great tool
This is a fantastic tool. It is reasonably small so gets into tight spots. The light is helpful and i like the paddle trigger. It has enough power to get the broken free bolts off.

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.
