Rated 4 out of 5 by Crazzyfred Good ratchet
I bought this ratchet do to the thin head and flex locking design. But I do work on heavy diesel and after a year of used the teeth broke in the ratchet. Got it fixed and I would say a year later the head snapped off. Is it better then a snap on? I would say yes and no. It's a better design but the same quality. Yes I would recommend it to another tech.

This is a great ratchet. I've had to use it on several projects and it has worked right every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mechgi77 Leverage is my name
I love this ratchet!!!!!!! I use it daily. It gives you alot of leverage, which for me comes in handy working on diesels. Makes stubborn filters and air dryer cartridges come off much easier. I also find it makes it easier to loosen the nuts on airbags on trucks and trailers when you cant get an impact to fit. Was reluctant to buy it because of the price, but for as much as I use it i'm glad I bought it. In my opinion the only thing i wish it had was a quick release for the socket. Go ahead and get one, you will not regret it!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cracker some flaws but good ratchet
I am a diesel mechanic and i use this ratchet a lot. i had a mac one before and i did not like it nearly as much as this one. I did have the square drive snap off on me but i called the matco guy in town and he came out and fixed it for me. i like the flex head lock better than snap on but the ratchet doesn't seem as smooth. overall good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kiatech13 GREAT RATCHET
I use this ratchet on a daily basis, works great for every application. The flex head provides easy access to those hard to reach places. This ratchet makes rotating over an engine easy, no hassle with a breaker bar. This is built to hold up to the toughest jobs and the 88 tooth head makes for smooth operation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 302bronco Anyone can use this ratchet a lot.
I purchased my 1/2 inch locking flex ratchet over a year ago and I use it almost every day, locking flex head is a time saver in tight spaces or just for convenience. Only down fall is the handle is small and flex a lot under moderate to heavy loads. Also my chrome is staring to peel. YMMV.
