Milwaukee Tool builds upon its lineup of ratchets with the introduction of the M12 FUEL Extended Reach ratchets. The 1/4-in. and 3/8-in. ratchets deliver up to 55 ft-lb. of max torque and feature a slim head profile with an extended neck that gives users the longest reach in tight spaces, the company says.
As with all M12 FUEL products, the new tools feature the PowerState brushless motor, RedLithium battery pack and RedLink Plus hardware and software to deliver performance, durability and run-time. The PowerState brushless motor delivers up to 200 RPM and 55 ft-lb. (for the M12 FUEL 3/8-in. ratchet) and up to 250 RPM and up to 40 ft-lb. (for the M12 FUEL 1/4-in. ratchet), ensuring power that rivals pneumatic, Milwaukee Tool says.
With no hoses, compressors or cords, a PowerState brushless motor improves the motor life of the M12 FUEL extended reach ratchets by up to twice that of other cordless options available, the company says. An investment cast steel yoke housing and premium anvil materials provide a durable solution.
With a balanced and ergonomic design featuring a compact head profile size and extended neck, users are able to access more limited space applications than other cordless and pneumatic ratchets.
For added protection, optional rubber boots are available for both tools. These boots add minimal size and weight to the tool and are made of durable, proprietary rubber designed to withstand corrosive materials commonly found in maintenance environments.
The M12 FUEL Extended Reach ratchets are compatible with the M12 cordless system, now offering more than 90 solutions.
