Customer Reviews
Rated 3 out of 5 by from NICHE TOOL I have owned this tool for a year. It still functions and works correctly. The things that I liked are the comfort of the grip, and the small size of the ratcheting head. The things I dislike. Adjusting the ratchet direction is hard and uncomfortable. The dial on the back doesn't have enough surface area to grip when slippery and greasy. It is sort of a weird tool, because the torque is not great enough for most sizes that 3/8" sockets are for. The torque is more suitable for 1/4" drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of my top 5 tools. I have been a mechanic for over 30 years. The cordless tools are the best things to come along in a long time. When I started to look for a cordless ratchet, price and respectable name brand where the 2 most important factors. I tried the Snap On and Mac cordless ratchets. The physical size of both are twice the size of the Milwaukee and 4 times the price. I wanted a cordless ratchet to get into small places and this one I feel is the best on the market. The only draw back about this tool is the kind of low power. I say this because I am comparing it to the Snap On and Mac. Both are 18 ish volts and this is 12 volt. If you are going to buy this ratchet, you need to compare it to using a 6-7 inch long hand ratchet. The Snap On and Mac are like using a 14 inch long hand ratchet. This one gets into much smaller places and is vary easy to control. If the bolt is to tight, I just brake it loose by hand and get it the rest of the way with this ratchet. I have been using this ratchet for over a year now and have had no trouble with it. I love this tool and I use it almost every day. Being able to get into tight areas is the best thing about this tool. It makes up for the little less power than the other brands. I just bought the Milwaukee 3/8" drive M18 impact. Had to buy the 12/18 volt charger. So if you think you will ever buy another Milwaukee cordless tool you need to get the 12/18 volt charger so you can have a charger for both batteries.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ratchet acuator broke Bought in March 2016, working on family car and ratcheting actuator broke, will be working with customer service for a resolution. One thing that I think would make this tool a bit better is to angle the light so it lightens both forward and a 90 degree to the tool since this is a 90 degree tool it seems logical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from M12 cordless ratchet I work in a ATV, motorcycle shop and require the use of an air ratchet a lot. I purchased the Milwaukee cordless 3/8 ratchet because one another mechanic in the shop has been using one now for a year without any issues at all. I really like not having to drag the air hose around. Not as strong as the air ratchet but you know that so choose your spots. Now I use the cordless 90% of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT RATCHET I am a diesel mechanic and use this on a daily basis and it has been real useful tearing down the top end of a motor. I do not have to drag out an air hose and wait on the air pressure before i can start working. This is by far one of the best tools I have purchased for work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, works as expected. Able to carry in my tool tray, so I can use a power ratchet away from my service truck.Love it.
