The Craftsman 3/8-in. Mini Air Ratchet Wrench Navigates Under Hoods Filled with Tight Spaces
This Craftsman 3/8-in. mini ratchet wrench from Sears packs a lot of ratcheting power into a small and well-designed tool. This 3/8-in. mini ratchet wrench is powerful, generating 20 ft/lb. of torque and 250 rpm free speed. While it may be powerful, it runs smoothly thanks to a twin pawl ratcheting mechanism. It's quiet, too, with a built-in silencer and rear exhaust that reduces noise.
This Craftsman 3/8-in. mini ratchet wrench is heavy in user-friendly features (for example, a laser-etched size indicator makes sure you grab the right tool every time), but it's light in weight. The tool, which has a comfortable ergonomic throttle, features a composite housing for a lightweight feel at just 1.6 pounds. It's a handy tool for jobs both big and small. This ratchet features a unique sealed ratchet head design which prevents the ratchet head from spreading under extreme loads.

Craftsman 3/8 in. Mini Ratchet Wrench is a great ratchet for a great price. It is not intended as a breakover bar as some try to use it for, but it was a good addition to my tool chest. I like it, because, it's fast & and takes over a lot of the work load for you. It is light weight, yet strong. If you keep this thing oiled before each use, it will last a long time. I use it for auto work around the house. My kid's cars keep me pretty busy keeping them going & I think that I use my air ratchet more on their cars, than I do on my cars. I also use this air ratchet in my shop on small engine repairs working on sand buggies. I have both shallow and deep well sockets to use for this ratchet. Adding a 3/8" swivel makes this tool more versital and easy to use in those awkward spots that you may need. I have a set of extentions for when the need arises as well. With the sockets, swivels, & extentions, you can get in a lot more spots than one would think. This impact is a regular tool that I use & would recommend to any shop. The only thing I don't like is the exhaust port, but other than that, I have no complaints. Make sure to use teflon tape when putting on your air connection & you will have a leak free connection. Keep it clean, oiled, & dry and you should have no issues with durability on this air ratchet.
Used it 3 years in heavy auto repair with no problems. The teeth on the pawl(s) sheared off. When the replacement parts come I will rebuild and continue using this air ratchet over my $250 IR 3/8

I bought this ratchet for work being done on my daughter's Mustang (replace exhaust manifold). I decided to buy this when I discovered my full sized pneumatic ratchet was too big 'round to fit in the space I needed to get too. This was perfect! Aside from losing its Craftsman label on one side, it has performed well!

this ratchet has good power and is way cheaper than some of the other ratchets available for triple or more the price. the only drawback in my opinion is the plastic paddle. which must be handled somewhat carefully.

I use mine for basic auto repair. Good performance. This 3/8" and the 1/4" drive are my fist set of air ratchets. I assure they are Properly lubricated prior to use. I have had no problems. These are basic working mans tools, nothing fancy, limited in torque but saved me a lot of time. They are Light, compact and performed well. For my needs, dollar for dollar I am positive on this product and I found these tools for the price are better in quality then those at the Discount tool store.
