Ratchets engineered for professionals 01 September 2023

DEWALT, a Stanley Black & Decker brand and a leader in jobsite solutions has recently announced two new sealed head ratchets – the 20V MAX XR® 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch as well as the XTREME™ 12V MAX 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch. These ratchets are ideal for the automotive, electrical and mechanical industries, as well as maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) professionals.

The new Sealed Head Ratchets are designed with the user in mind, with features ideal to tackle the most demanding jobs. The innovative sealed head design and glass-filled nylon tool housing helps provide protection against oils and automotive solvents meeting the needs of professionals across industries on any jobsite.

The new interchangeable anvil design allows users to quickly switch between square drives in both models in addition to a 1/4 inch quick change hex with the XTREME™ 12V MAX model to complete a variety of applications. The low-profile head offers accessibility in tight workspaces, while the variable speed trigger and forward/reverse switch allow users to quickly change speed and direction to maximise productivity. The ratchets also feature a trigger lock that helps prevent accidental activation and an onboard LED work light to help illuminate dark areas.

The 20V MAX XR® 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch Sealed Head Ratchet is compatible with all DEWALT 20V MAX batteries and chargers. The tools are available either as a bare unit or as a kitted unit with DEWALT POWERSTACK™.
