Rated 5 out of 5 by from M12 3/8” ratchet A great addition to my m12 tool collection. A must have

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3/8" Fuel Ratchet review. Tool is great! Has good torque when removing rusted nuts. Seems to have less vibration bounce when trying to remove those types of fasteners as well. Small and definitely makes up for a third hand when it's not there. No air ratchet needed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great The ratchet is strong and well designed. Its a little on the slow side on rpm but makes up in torque if thats what you're after. I recently bought the high speed version and this one has become a backup now. Nothing wrong with it i just prefer the speed over torque.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool!, just needs alittle more power. Tool seems to be tough and durable, the only thing i wish it did was ratchet harder on reverse. I have to break most bolts free before I can use this ratchet on rusty bolts. Other than that tool works great and lasts a long time on a battery

Seems to tighten ok, BUT in reverse to remove it makes a single attempt and shuts off. This can not be correct, right? Yeah, like a single pulse.

Check your battery connection. The M12 batteries aren't as durable as the M18. It can look like it's fully engaged, when it actually isn't.

why are you pricing a 55 torque wrench the same price as the cordless 220lbs torque? That is a sham.

Asked by: JS
They are two different types of impact wrenches for different purposes.

Asked by: Mike
I have not tried it myself yet but I don't see any reason why it can't. It believe it has enough power to unscrew bolts from car engines.

I just received this ratchet and I am concerned there may be something wrong with it. It appears to work but I can hold the anvil in place with my fingers alone with the trigger fully depressed and the tool spinning at top speed. Is this normal? Should it not engage so that I cannot hold it in place by hand?
Asked by: Sicotic
It is not.
