Electric ratchet

Was watching a you tube car channel today and the guy was using what looked like an air ratchet but was battery powered. Anyone got one and are they any good? A quick look on eBay & Amazon and they are between £25 to £90.

I have a Snap On 1/4Ē drive thatís handy at times but you really need to crack off any fasteners before using it, It takes the same batteries as my 3/8Ē rattle gun thatís very useful. Canít comment on any of the cheaper tools but I would say if you havenít already got a rattle gun thatís what I would recommend. Might be worth looking at the posts in the tool section of the forum?

SMA on YT by any chance?

Yes I bought a Sealey battery wrench - works great and gets a lot of use https://www.ffx.co.uk/tools/product/Sealey-Cp1202Kit-5054511190328-Ratchet-Wrench-Kit-3-8Insq-Drive-12V-Li-Ion--2-Batteries . Undo by hand like a ratchet then wiz off with the button. Last bit of a tighten done by hand - though it does have some oomph. I bought it especially for the timing chaion cover on my Jag project - perfect!
