Snap-on releases new MicroLithium cordless ratchets

May 20, 2014

Snap-on has introduced two new MicroLithium cordless ratchets for technicians. The ratchets, 1/4 in. drive and a 3/8 in. drive models, both feature 14.4v MicroLithium batteries that match the performance of a pneumatic ratchet, Snap-on said.

“Our new cordless ratchets give you the freedom and added accessibility of working untethered without sacrificing one bit of speed,” said Rodger Isetts, product manager for Snap-on. “In addition, the 14.4 volt MicroLithium battery system is interchangeable with our other micro cordless tools in the line, providing even more convenience, productivity and performance.”

Both provide high manual breakaway torque and follow with rotational speeds of up to 350 RPM to remove and install bolts fast. They feature a cold-forged crankshaft for quality, strength and durability.
