Milwaukee 2556-20 M12 Fuel 1/4 in. Ratchet (Bare Tool)
Not much i can say it seems durable until you start using it daily and then
you realise that this tool is going to take a beating.. using all day long to
make up for the money it costs is going to be a real deal breaker.

Priceless tool to have

I purchased this ratchet about a year ago after seening a snap-on version. My friend said how much it was and stuff. Well I picked this up, a lot cheaper and more powerful then his 14.4v one. It's definitely a win-win with this tool. Milwaukee never let's me down. A great tool for any tool box. The ratchet is a bit powerful especially if your coming off a brushed one. I added the protective cover shortly after buying the tool.

Amazing tool - quality, power, long battery life
I'm a mechanic. I use this ratchet daily. Honestly, this style of ratchet that allows for breaking fasteners loose by hand is the best. The ratchet is sturdy and well balanced. Because this is the smallest of the gen 2, I use it quite more than the 3/8 inch. Even using an adaptor to 3/8 sockets is no problem. Am very satisfied and would always buy another one. Only one drawback have I encountered. In winter, with thicker gloves on, switching forward/reverse is sometimes a chalange.

Powerful. Fast rpms to turn the nuts off or on. Small, easy to fit in small spaces. Battery last a long time. Love it. Don't turn on the air compressor very much anymore. So.much quieter than my air ratchets. My ears don't hurt as much at the end of the day. Five year Warrenty that I hope never to have to use. I have all three Milwaukee ratchets now. Great tools.

i have an older cordless ratchet that the ball has come out of the head. can i buy just the head or is it cheaper to buy whole tool?

BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not carry any parts. You can contact Milwaukee directly at 1-800-729-3878. The agent will be able to assist you with the part replacement.
Any ratchet head options, such as a female 1/4" hex drive? Can the drive heads be swapped-out?

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.
