Air ratchets aren't usually used for their breakaway power. You would use them when clearance is really small so you don't have to twist a ratchet back and forth a hundred time when you are only catching one or two teeth.

LOL at the shop gorillas comparing this to several hundred dollar tools that have more torque. This is a mini ratchet. The point of this tool is small size and light weight, not gargantuan torque. You use it like a standard non-powered socket wrench to break the fastener free, then pull the trigger to quickly zip it out.

And I call BS on the claims of similar tools doing 100 or 140 ft-lbs. Let's see some documentation of that.

If you don't see the use then it's not for you.

You use your actual muscles to break the bolt free then zip it off with air.m



If speed is not a factor then it makes sense you wouldn't use it. For professionals where time is money, or even just on tedious work like valve covers these make the job a lot faster.

Don't see the use in this, it's a big compromise...small but no power.

Personally the only air ratchet I use it the impacting style, otherwise they just make a ton of noise and twist your arm

Of all of the air tools in my collection ... this is the one that gets the LEAST amount of use. I purchased mine about 25 years ago ... and haven't used it since.

My manual 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 sets do just fine ...

This thing is a pos has no balls then I bought a snap on electric that does 100lbs. My IR pneumatic does 140lbs. I guess you can use it after the bolts are loose.

Milwaukee M12 ratchet...never looked back at air tools. I have the M18 1/2 " impact tool also. Best tools on the market and work flawlessly. They aren't $17.90 but I can take them to the salvage yard or anywhere.

Which Snap-on electric does 100lbs? I don't see one.

What is an air tool and why/when would you use one? What does the air part do that you can't do otherwise, or as easily, precisely, etc.? I'm talking about manual ones such as this appears to be and not pneumatic powered ones of course.

...Oh wait, I asked too soon...it appears that this tool is meant to be hooked up to compressed air to be used properly. I thought it was a self-contained tool that somehow used internally compressed air to give the user leverage or shock relief or as some sort of breakaway torque clutch or the like.
