RIDGID MAKES A CORDLESS 1/4'' HEX RATCHET. IT CAME OUT THE SAME TIME AS THEIR CORDLESS IMPACT WRENCH. MODEL #R82233 RIGHT ANGLE IMPACT DRIVER. 700 INCH POUNDS. ALMOST THE SAME AS AN AIR RATCHET. IT DOES IMPACT WHEN IT IS TORQUEING TO TIGHTEN OR LOOSEN A FASTNER. OTHERWISE IT WILL SPIN AT A HIGHER SPEED. EXPECT A PRICE DROP AS IT'S NOT A BIG SELLER.
WELL JUST AS I THOUGHT. AT HOME DEPOT TONIGHT. THIS DRIVER WAS REDUCED FROM $169 DOWN TO $99.
DIDN'T BUY ONE, I BOUGHT TWO. 700 INCH POUNDS OF TORQUE. VARIABLE SPEED PADDLE SWITCH. 12 VOLT WITH 20 MINUTE CHARGER.
The best 'cordless' square drive ratchet I have found over the years is the old basic ratchet made by Craftsman, Mac, Snap-On or the other major brands. They are available in ¼", 3/8", ½" and bigger drives and accept standard or deep well sockets. Most of the major companies offer a lifetime warranty on the ratchets.
