cordless Ratchet search
« on: August 03, 2021, 05:23:21 PM »
still looking- i really think this would help out


I think im decided on going blue- to Kobalt if i do it.

they have a smaller $129 55ft*lb "power ratchet" and a larger $149 180ft*lb "impact ratchet" 

looks like a charger with a 2ah and 4ah bat is $129

I am in absolute love with my Milwaukee ratchet. I can't think of any job I've done since I got it where I don't use it.

Iirc the discussion I’ve had with pro mechanics is between Milwaukee and snap on. The key features and failings are length and whether you can reef on the end of it without breaking it. Head size seems to be similar across all.

couple solid jobs with this guy and still happy.  Still think if i knew the power the smaller one had, i wouldn't have bought the other larger one also, but im sure it will get used, on those bigger jobs.
