Product Description

Get the Job Done Fast with the Max Axess Auto Ratchet

The CM C3 Max Axess auto ratchet is powered by Craftsman's top-selling platform, the long-life C3 19.2V battery. That means you're not tied to air hoses or cords. You loosen and tighten quickly and easily, anywhere. You also carry fewer tools, because the pass-through design eliminates the need for deep sockets, and easily tightens long rods, too. The auto ratchet comes with the three socket sizes you use most and an adapter that drives every 3/8-inch drive standard socket.

With the Max Axess auto ratchet you loosen or tighten at up to 225 rpms, with a variable speed control, and switch to manual for a finger-tight finish. In low light situations, use the included LED illumination, and in cramped spaces take advantage or the small head designed to get in anywhere. Get the job done with this efficient portable tool that puts the power in your hands.

  • Tough, durable CM C3 Max Axess auto ratchet for home and garage
  • With reliable fade-free 19.2 Volt lithium-ion battery
  • Compatible with any Craftsman C3 19.2V battery
  • Fasten and unfasten long rods and bolts
  • Forward/reverse toggle switch
  • Paddle switch for fastening speed up to 225 rpm
  • Lock switch avoids unintentional starts
  • LED light switch for bright illumination with low power drain
  • Work anywhere, and reach tight spots
  • Includes 3/8in., 7/16in., and 1/2 in. sockets and square 3/8in. adapter
  • One-year limited warranty

Works great with max axxess sockets. Adapter needs to be revised
The ratchet works great if you're using the max axxes sockets. Just like what other people are saying about the 3/8" adapter, it pops out if you put too much pressure. Looking at the adapter I found out that the flange should be on the same side as the 3/8" pin. Just like the max axxes sockets. Hopefully they'll make a revised adapter. Power is good for what it's intended for.

Not as good as I had hoped.
I was looking forward to this new product because I had an IR ratchet that I liked but replacement batteries were very expensive. When I received the new max axcess ratchet it was light and easy to handle. The first time I used it it was powerful and had good torque. The problem I have with it is when using the adapter to use a standard socket the adaptor pops out when you put pressure on the bolt or nut you are trying to remove - very frustrating!! The adaptor needs to be made with the flange that prevents it from pushing out on the opposite side. I hope craftsman comes out with a fix for this.

3/8" adapter sucks.

The adapter for the 3/8" socket needs to be redesigned. It should be attached to the ratchet the same way you attach the maxx axess socket, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND! This will prevent the adapter from popping out as you always put pressure while using any ratchet. This unit is useless if you don't have the maxx axess universal sockets. Unless you have those maxx axess sockets, do not buy this product until they redesign the adapter.

Great tool

I bought it mainly for the battery and charger. The tool is handy though. It can get into tight places.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works like an impact, fits tight spaces

I got this mostly for the battery. I figure, why buy a new Li battery when for a few bucks more I can get a tool with it. So far, so good with this unique driver. Its cool factor is that it is flat so if you want to power through some bolts but can't fit a drill type driver in there, this will make it a breeze. It came in handy, for instance, when I had to remove a front spoiler off a car. I just put on a one-inch stubby and socket and zipped through all ten bolts. One thing that I didn't expect is that it functions with a type of impact action rather than a smooth, linear action. Not saying that's bad, actually it's handy, just didn't expect it,

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great For Weekend Warrior

The Craftsman C3 Max Axess Auto Ratchet is a great tool for the weekend DIYer. It's strong enough for most around the house/backyard projects. Perfect for making a swingset or one of those backyard play mansions! It is a little loud (regarding other reviews), but it's a power tool, not a toy!! It'll also do well with lighter duty auto repairs - just be realistic about the ft/lbs of torque needed. The feel is good and balanced, while being solidly constructed. Be prepared to buy more of the open Axess sockets unless you are just doing the basics or using the 3/8ths drive adapter. The only possible "flaw" I noticed was that the 3/8" drive adapter should have been designed to push through and 'click-lock' from the inside, not a big deal if you're not pushing down on the head. The Ion battery is very strong, although I too wish there was a battery level indicator on it. I still have a lot more to try with it!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Low torque, and lacks any redeeming qualities

Overall, I felt that the ratchet was too low on torque to be truly useful. For example, it cannot break off my car's lug nuts when torqued to 70 lb-ft. The unique shape means that it can fit in tight places like under a car or in the wheel well, but the ratchet does not have enough torque to loosen suspension bolts. I tried the ratchet with both the lithium ion battery and the XCP lithium ion battery. I do not own a Max Axess socket set, and my automotive work involves metric sizes, so I was forced to use the 3/8" adapter. For everyone saying that the adapter falls out, they have likely installed it backward; it works fine if installed properly. When used in lower torque applications, the impact mechanism creates a lot of noise and vibration, and the 225 rpm speed is relatively slow. As a result, the auto-ratchet was never my first choice of tool. For these reasons, I feel the usefulness of this tool is not worth the cost so I would not recommend it.

Decent product

I received this about a month ago and just recently had the opportunity to put it to good use while putting together an outdoor playset. Here are my pros/cons: Pros: *Easy to use. Sockets snap in and out without too much trouble *Fits in tight spaces *Good battery life Cons: *Only came with a few sockets. I didn't have any Max Axess sockets before receiving it and it only came with 4 or so. Thankfully it included a 3/8" adapter so I could use my existing socket set, but this also increases the length. *Not as powerful as I hoped. It does a decent job and definitely made the job faster, but I often had to pull out my socket wrench to tighten it further. Overall a good tool, just could use a little more power and more sockets.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
