Milwaukee Builds Out Ratchet Offering with new M12 FUEL™ Extended Reach Ratchets
MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool builds upon its best-in-class lineup of ratchets with the introduction of new M12 FUEL™ Extended Reach Ratchets. The 1/4" and 3/8” ratchets deliver up to 55 ft-lbs of max torque* and feature a slim head profile with an extended neck that gives users the longest reach in tight spaces.
As with all M12 FUEL™ products**, the new tools feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software— to deliver unmatched performance, durability and run-time. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor delivers up to 200 RPM and 55 ft-lbs (for the M12 FUEL™ 3/8” Ratchet) and up to 250 RPM and up to 40 ft-lbs (for the M12 FUEL™ 1/4" Ratchet), ensuring power that rivals pneumatic.
With no hoses, compressors, or cords, a POWERSTATE™ brushless motor improves the motor life of the M12 FUEL™ Extended Reach Ratchets by up to 2X that of other cordless options available. An investment cast steel yoke housing and premium anvil materials provide a robust and durable solution to withstand shop and jobsite use.
With a balanced and ergonomic design featuring the most compact head profile size and extended neck in the industry, 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.
Available September 2019, the new M12 FUEL™ Extended Reach Ratchets are compatible with the M12™ cordless system, now offering more than 90 solutions.
