I don’t use a ratchet, but do have a couple of impact guns.

The baby gun does two hundred and something Nm. The big gun does 1000nm so will undo anything anywhere on a Mondy :)

Partial to Makita myself, I've got the DTW285 1/2" which has a 400nm peak for loosening and a 280nm peak for tightening.

 

Hasn't let me down yet..... touch wood.

yes used it quite a bit, had it for nearly 4 years now, build quality is great, apart from the usual oily hand prints on the body it still works the way it did when i got it. i use it for nuts or bolts that are long in length, i dont use it to crack bolts or nuts, if i cant get my guns in i use a bar to crack the nuts/bolts then the ratchet to wind them off, hasnt let me down.

How loud would you say the ratchet is?

I find I tend not to use my impact guns unless I have to as they can be very noisy, and I don’t want to upset the neighbours. For the same reason I prefer to use a sanding machine or pillar drill as they are much quieter than hand sanders or 240 mains drills.

 

Ive been looking for a brushless 115mm 240v angle grinder too for the same reason.

I already have a small brushless grinder. but it’s an 18v battery one.

i only bought it because it's got the potential for other tools to go with it as a set

 

plus it's got a cool bag

 

never needed to use it though but i've had plenty of times where i've thought "yeah, that would be a good time to use this" lol

Bit of thread drift, but it’s tool related. :)

 

I’m looking for a small brushless angle grinder. I’m also mainly left handed even though I use power tools with both hands. This means I can’t have ‘right handed only’ tools. If anyone knows of a brushless corded ambidextrous controlled grinder that would be great.

 

Here are my current two small grinders, both have ambidextrous power switches, one is a cordless Makita and the other a corded budget Makita brand.

I’d better add that, yes, I am an H and S nightmare and never use the grinders with guards :)
