Awesome Product
This is a game changer when it comes to power tools. It has already been put to use since the day I got it. I recommend this highly for any do it yourselfers or any professional contractor to add to your collection!

I definitely recommend this ratchet. It's a real time saver in tight spots. I only wish that I would have bought it years ago.

I've had this M12 Cordless Ratchet for about a month. It is awesome for it's size and the investment. The only fault I see, is the lack of rubber boot to protect the head of the ratchet. I have had great service from all of my Milwaukee cordless and corded power tools.

Fantastic tool, a must have for any fitter
Honestly one of my favorite pieces, it makes doing up those hose clamps in difficult areas extremely easy. Great amount of grunt for such a small piece, absolutely love it.
Small design change suggestion: the trigger lock out switch is difficult to switch between lock/unlock as it's so small I often have to use a screw driver to unlock it.

Perfect for car repair where space is limited.
I used this tool to do an intake manifold job on a 240SX which is quite a task. This tool made the whole job a breeze since there is no manual cranking required. This does not have a whole lot of power, but it is perfect for jobs like that since you can break the bolt loose using the ratchet and drive it out with a click of a button. Great tool for where smaller fasteners are used high torque is not required.

A versatile "Go-To" tool in the M12 line!
After purchasing the *non-FUEL* Milwaukee M12 5-piece kit, I liked them all so much I went out and bought this during a promotion - it's a MUST have for any automotive work. It's also priced phenomenally well compared to competitors.

As I find the M12 series has fantastic torque among the whole family of tools, this ratchet is controllable at 250 RPM and super light/wieldable. I absolutely love how compact it is as I use it regularly for small engine repair, automotive jobs, and general fastening. It's battery life is superb with the 1.5A batteries with not much need for using the more bulky XC batteries when it tight spaces.

10/10 would recommend for any one looking to expand their M12 collection that needs a compact and controllable ratchet.

Great tool. Nice and compact. Fits into tight spaces well. Could use a little more power but that wouldn't stop me from purchasing it again. CPO has been great to deal with.

Good product, good price, easy to operate.
The ratchet information came highly recommended from a friend, so after doing my research, I was convinced that was what I needed.

After you hit the maximum torque when tightening a bolt or nut can you then use the tool manually to tighten it further?
Can you use the tool manually to break bolts free?
T&D Electric on Apr 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. I use this ratchet on a daily basis. And I tighten the bolts like any other ratchet. Still going strong. I love Milwaukee.
