I am an auto mechanic and this ratchet is the most used tool in my tool box. Anything from doing brakes, removing dashes and engine work.
Battery life isn't bad and the batteries recharge quickly, so far i have nothing but praise for this product.

Describe Yourself:
Professional
Plenty of power!!
I already had a 3/8" ratchet, when I thought a 1/4" would come in really handy. My 3/8" is not the Fuel and this 1/4" has more umph to it than the 3/8" by a fair margin. The only drawback is, it is a little bulky to get into some tight spots.

This ratchet is pretty good, makes jobs faster
There is not enough power to break loose a fastener that was torqued to 98 in lbs. Once a fastener is broken loose it's pretty fast to remove them. The battery life is good, I use this a couple times a day for a few minutes and the battery lasts for nearly a week.

I would definitely by this ratchet again.
This is a great cordless tool for the money. It has decent power after the initial break free of the fastener.only downfall would be it is bulkier than the non fuel model and some of the other competition.

NEEDS MORE BREAKING POWER
I HAVE OWNED 2 OF THE ORIGINAL STYLE RATCHETS FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND WAS HARD ON THEM, DECIDED TO UPGRADE TO THE NEW BRUSHLESS AND IS VERY GOOD BUT DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE THE SAME BREAKING TORQUE AS THE OLD MODEL. STILL VERY GOOD RATCHET FOR THE PRICE. USED EVERY DAY. AS A AUTOMOTIVE TECH IT IS GREAT FOR TIGHT SPACES

Product needs the drive set available
I've yet to use the tool since I bought it months ago. I thought Milwaukee would have a drive set available for the product. I know I can just buy any set to use it. However everything I use in my truck is Milwaukee and I'd like to keep it that way.

Great ratchet with lots of torque.
I like this ratchet, it has lots of torque and great battery life. I have used it to assemble several work benches and two curio cabinets. No complaints about the tool.

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?
Ernest S on Feb 14, 2019
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.
