Noticed Amazon has the Milwaukee 2457-20 M-12 3/8" Ratchet, tool only for $85.80 [amazon.com]. Ebay has the same tool for less, though if you want to not worry about the warranty then Amazon is the way to go.
I have this tool, in my view an excellent 3/8" ratchet and if your a guy (or gal) that likes to work on their own mower, car, boat, whatever, this is a nice tool to have. For those with the Amex, Citi or Discover 20% off on their account, this would be a nice deal more in line with ebay.

Amazon is not a Milwaukee dealer. You will only get the warrant from the start of the tool manufacture date and not from when you bought it. Source: I tried to warranty a drill I bought from Amazon.

This is the non-fuel version. I will 100% second your opinion. I've had it about 6 months and I use it for DIY stuff on cars and my lawn equipment. For these tasks, it works pretty well. It will loosen a lot of smaller stuff - 10/12 mm outright, obviously depending on torque. I do use it to crack smaller bolts loose and run them off and on. It will crack my crack oil drain plugs, too. I find it's a great help around the garage and a great tool for this price. I got mine off ebay for about this price.

I have this and the 3/8 M12 fuel stubby impact and that's pretty much the ball game for any work i would do on my cars, lawn mower, etc.

Also... This comes up with DeWalt tools, whereas Amazon is an authorized reseller of DeWalt tools, it only applies if Amazon is itself the seller and not a third-party selling through Amazon. You need to see where it says: "Sold by..." If Amazon.com or Amazon Services LLC is not the seller, DeWalt will not honor the warranty. I wonder if the same applies to Milwaukee tools.

Note: This deal for $85.80 appears to be from the third-party seller "CCHPRODUCTS", so buyer-beware.

Thanks for posting! I literally was about to buy from someone on facebook marketplace for $100.

Looked on ebay and found the same price ($85) after shipping... so I went with Amazon and paid the sales tax for free returns and the perhaps the possibility of arguing the warranty?

See my comment above... I wouldn't count on the warranty unless (possibly) Amazon is the actual seller (and not a third-party seller on Amazon's website).

Seller is Vera Tools (presumably named to sound like Wera Tools?)

I bought this in a combo pack last month. It will spin bolts but you will need to break them loose first. At that point you could just spin it with your fingers anyhow. Overall I'm not too impressed, I wouldn't buy it again. Just my opinion. The right angle impact that was recently released would be a much more useful tool to have

It's not Amazon =( Thank you for the heads up though - your post was the reason I phrased as "possibility of arguing the warranty" lol... At least the free returns guards me against DOA.

Yeah, if it's DOA, Amazon should cover you for a quick return. I've found some smokin' deals on Amazon via third-party vendors (I was able to purchase the Milwaukee M12 Fuel Hammer Drill Bare-Tool for only about $40 and it's worked great), but you just need to realize that you're "taking a risk" (just like you would on eBay) in buying this way.

Actually I've bought broken milwaukee tools for cheap and have gotten them serviced under warranty without issue. Milwaukee's warranty service is the gold standard.

Amazon is not a authorized Milwaukee dealer. So Shipped and sold by Amazon, the warranty is going to go off the tool manufacture date, not the sale date. The only way to get Milwaukee tools with full warranty on Amazon is to buy items sold by a authorized third party seller (CPO, for example, sells on Amazon and Ebay, and is an authorized Milwaukee dealer).
