mmmm I want the head size smaller like before
I work as a railroad electrical technician. The purpose of a cordless ratchet is to get into tight spaces and save time. To make a 3/8's head bigger that a 1/2 inch ratchet?????? Come on?. The 3/8 size is the most used of all.

Yes but there are problems.
I use it to remove and install panels on cars and trucks. The anvil will give out make it hard go from forward to reverse, also the screw holding the head will back out so watch out. The serial number will come off so make sure to keep the receipt.

I've had mine for almost a year now and I replaced my gen 1 3/8 ratchet that I really didn't like it didn't have enough power to break loose spark plugs and it was slow as heck it is a little bit bigger but I always use one of the new 2:00 amp batteries doesn't take as much room that man this thing has power it will break loose any bolt in the engine compartment. Again what other ratchet is out there that will do that? Snap on? Well, you'll just have to check youtube pretty soon. Oh, and I sold my gen 1 for 80 bucks, after using it a year.

I use this ratchet on everything possible. I haven’t found anything to complain about. If you are looking for one buy it without any regret.

Great tool - Bulky and handle button broke.
I use this tool almost everyday and it is great but could be improved with a smaller head like the gen 1. Also like one snap on model they have a longer head to reach into smaller places.The actual trigger is metal but the button it pushes in is plastic and broke on me, waiting to get it back from my service center. I have talked to Milwaukee reps about these issues and looking forward to gen 3!

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.
