Great ratchet! Competes with Snap On's Dual F80
This is a great ratchet. I have this 3/8" ratchet as well as the 1/2" premium one. I also have the Snap On F80 3/8" and S80A 1/2" as well. This premium Craftsman ratchet competes with the Snap On ratchets. There are some differences between them though. As far as handle design, the Craftsman premium handle is much better than the Snap On one. The feel of the handle and the leverage you can put on the handle makes it better than the Snap On's, The 84 tooth used in the Craftsman ratchets is the finest tooth design ever sold by Sears. The Snap On's have 80 teeth. The Snap On's, despite having 4 less teeth, are still smoother than the Craftsman. The Craftsman premium ratchets are a great ratchet and with the lifetime warranty can come in handy if something ever goes wrong. The Snap On's have a lifetime warranty as well, but unless you're a shop that has the truck guy come by on a regular basis, you'd be better off with this Craftsman ratchet! Sears is 7 minutes away.

Too Bad
The feel of this ratchet is great, really great. However, the ratchet will lock up. Sears will replace it with a new ratchet off the shelf but it requires a trip to the store. I'm on my fourth one.

OK ratchet, but not better than Slim Profile

So I'm a hobby mechanic I refuse to pay out my hard earned money for the "convenience" of letting someone else fix something. It's sort of like flying vs driving. You may get to lounge in the airport but did you really save any usable time...and how much did it cost you. OK someone walked off with my Craftsman Slim Profile 3/8" ratchet and my wife bought me this for Christmas or Father's Day. I honestly don't like using it. Its too heavy & the handle is too long to take advantage of the high teeth count. It doesn't have a quick release button. I have two cheap long handle ratchets for breaking loose things and I usually want something light and nice to the touch and slightly smaller for normal clearance items. I actually tried to use it this last weekend and it was too big and went to the freebie forged craftsman POS and that worked. I also have a 3/8" AmPro stubby high tooth ratchet. I prefer to use that for an application that requires it. She bought my the 1/4" Premium Grade as well and that one is much more useful. Save your money & buy a Craftsman Slim Profile and if you want a high teeth ratchet get a stubby one for those tight spaces.

Easy ratchet

This item is smooth to work with and great for tight places that you have difficulty reaching. However, I found the claws or notches inside the ratchet to be a little off .

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best Ratchet Made

I picked up a 3/8 premium ratchet yesterday, have used about every ratchet out there including truck brands. With out any question this is the finest ratchet made. The finish is perfect, there were no blemishes, it reminded me of a high end German car in quality. The action was smooth as a Swiss watch, It felt perfect. Most important, I have large hands The feel was like someone made it just for me. COO is USA.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

USA Made and Smooth as Silk Action

Just got the 3/8" and 1/4" ratchet and I really like the smooth action and feel. Will make a great additions to the RV tool box. Will add the 1/2" if these hold up.

Junk, Junk and more Junk

Was "operational" for 4-5 months however the connection between Ratchet Drive and head became loose after only a few weeks. Craftsman refused to replace under their so-called "lifetime" warranty, no reason given why they would not replace. This was the first Craftsman tool I ever purchased, I will never purchase another one, I would strongly encourage anyone who requires a always performing, and a true no questions replacement warranty to use Snap-on (my personal choice) or Mac as they last forever, and provided you don't misuse them they last forever. If it breaks just request a replacement kit or talk to your rep and arrives a new one (or the new version if no longer being made). I should note "red" Snap-on are made in the U.S.A. they have a cheep brand that is not but all true Snap-on are made in the U.S.A. unlike Craftsman or Kobalt

new style ratchet

Being a 63 year old mechanic I found this new ratchet when I went to sears the other day to buy some other tools.Someone obviously got it right this time with comfort and ergonomics. This fits in your hand so comfortably and smooth.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
