Product Overview

Details

The Milwaukee 3/8 in. Cordless M12 Lithium-Ion Ratchet features best in class power, speed, and durability in a small yet powerful package. Its durable motor provides 35 ft-lbs. of torque at 250 RPM to handle most jobs with ease, and its compact design gives the user better maneuverability in smaller, tighter work spaces. A metal variable speed trigger gives the user precise speed control for any application, and since it's powered by Milwaukee's REDLITHIUM technology, it also runs with a longer lifespan for more use and less charging. The ratchet is built with reinforced housing for extra durability, and also comes equipped with a built-ion LED to light dimly lit work areas and a built-in battery fuel gauge that displays the remaining run time.
Features:
  • Compact yet powerful design delivers 35 ft-lbs. of torque at 250 RPM
  • Lightweight for easy maneuverability
  • 3/4 in. low profile head allows for easier use in tight spaces
  • Reinforced housing for maximum durability
  • Variable speed metal trigger gives the user precise speed control
  • On-board fuel gauge displays remaining run time
  • Built-in LED light allows for work in dimly lit areas
Includes:
  • M12 3/8 in. Cordless Lithium-Ion Ratchet (Bare Tool) - 2457-20
  • Bare Tool - Battery and Charger Sold Separately

A must have tool
I do all my own car repairs (4 cars) so I'm doing some sort of maintainence regularly as well as some major repairs. I was sceptical of the power and how long a charge would last but after reading many reviews I needed to give it a try. I love the function of an air ratchet but hate the noise so I never use mine. This tool is amazing! It has plenty of power for what its supposed to do. Its not supposed to break tightened bolts loose, its supposed to spin nuts and bolts on and off with having to swing a ratchet back and forth. In my opinion, the comments I've read in some places about not having enough power are a non issue. With most motors and parts being made of aluminum the last thing you want is a tool cabable of snapping a bolt or stripping out a thread. You can use it as a manual ratchet to break a fastener loose and then hit the trigger! This thing has made working on cars (especially in tight spaces where you cant ratchet more that a fraction of a turn) much easier and faster. You can work all day on a charge without a problem. For those willing to shell out 3 times the money to a guy on a tool truck for a product with less warranty, more power to you. With a 5 year warranty at this price, you cant go wrong.

Must have tool!!!
The tool does what it's supposed to do at a great price. It's a ratchet like an air ratchet. It's not an impact gun. It makes working on cars faster and easier. A battery will last all day without a problem. I did my timing belt and water pump and used it for most every fastener and the battery still showed a half charge

Great tool! Perfect to replace air tools
I purchased this for a guy that works across the shop from me in a dealership. I personally own both the 3/8 and the 1/4 version of this tool. Just like myself, this guy loves the tool. It has COMPLETELY eliminated the use of my 1/4 air ratchet and my 3/8 air only gets used when there is an extremely stubborn bolt. The only slight gripe would be that the speed could be a little faster. When compared to an air ratchet, these are pretty slow. But, you get used to it and it actually allows for a little better control. The 1/4 has more than enough power, and the 3/8 is enough for most task. Love these tools!

A good alternative to an air ratchet
With no hose to trip over or drag around and enough power to get the job done this ratchet saves me lots of time and makes my job easier, you can't ask for more than that!

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?

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 60 days.
