Milwaukee M12 Fuel Extended Reach 1/4″ & 3/8″ Ratchet

Milwaukee officially announces their new M12 Fuel extended reach 1/4″ and 3/8″ ratchets that were debuted in this years NPS19 event. They will be launched in September 2019.

These are very similar to the original Milwaukee M12 Fuel ratchets but with a slim head profile with an extended neck that gives users the longest reach in tight spaces and because they are Fuel branded models, they feature their powerful Powerstate brushless motor. 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. Performance is the same as the previous M12 Fuel ratchet models but now with an extended reach head.

An investment cast steel yoke housing and premium anvil materials provide a robust and durable solution to withstand shop and jobsite use. 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.

I have last year’s M12 Fuel ratchet. Now that I read this press release, I wonder:

1. Is the MOTOR itself rated for that amount of torque, or is that the actual torque being provided to the socket? The losses between the motor and head on the extended reach model have to be more than the standard model, yet they both have the same torque output rating.

2. What are the actual rated torque values with different batteries? Is the advertised torque only achieved with the higher Amp-hour XC battery? What torque is given with the smaller 2.0 A-h battery?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
