Discussion

Milwaukee launched M12 Fuel high speed ratchets in 2021. Prior to that, they launched M12 Fuel extended reach ratchets.

Now, they are launching M12 Fuel high speed extended reach ratchets. Makes sense.

The main selling points include: best-in-class access, fastest cordless ratchets, 20% more reach than competitive ratchets.

Milwaukee’s M12 Fuel 1/4″ extended reach ratchet deliver 40ft-lbs max torque and 250 RPM, and their 3/8″ ratchet delivers 55 ft-lbs max torque and 200 RPM. The new high-speed versions deliver 35 ft-lbs max torque and 450 RPM.

If you’re looking for an extended reach ratchet, would you benefit more from higher max torque, or faster speed?
