Very Handy Tool Rated 4 by Anonymous
The M12 cordless ratchet makes quick work of removing and installing long fasteners. The drive end mechanism is a little wobbly as though it was a bit off-center, but this does not detract from its utility. It works okay as a manual ratchet, however a bit unwieldy due to the large handle. The spot light does a nice job of illuminating the fastener. The compact Li-Ion battery charges quickly and seems to have good endurance.

im a professional mechanic, i have a 1/4 drive snap on cordless ratchet i use alot, i wanted a 3/8 drive version but snapon replaced theres with this. i figured its rated at 35 ft/lbs so it should be more powerfull ........ but its not... it is lighter, more compact , has a higher free spin speed, and the battery charges faster/ lasts longer

Great ratchet Rated 4 by gug371
  Yes, I recommend this product.
I can't believe this little 12 volt ratchet does the job it does.The battery holds up good and it has decent power for a cheaper battery operated 3/8 ratchet.I'm very happy with the purchase .The only negative is it gets wide and hard to get in some places .

Replaces an air tool, but big Rated 4 by Anonymous
I use this for basic, low torque bolts you come across with car maint. I wish it was as compact as the air ratchet I use. The battery life and power makes it convenient, but not as versatile as a compact air ratchet.
