The compact brushless ratchets allow users to fasten and remove nuts, bolts, and more in hard-to-reach work areas. The Dewalt ratchets are each designed with a glass-filled nylon tool housing** that provides resistance to automotive fluids and solvents for use in automotive and other demanding applications. With the introduction of ratchets, users can expand into a new product category amongst Dewalt tools, across both the Dewalt Xtreme 12V MAX* and Atomic Compact Series 20V MAX* lines.

The new Xtreme 12V MAX* Dewalt ratchets are available with 1/4-In (DCF504), 3/8-In (DCF503) and 3/8-In Extended Reach (DCF503E) square drive configurations, with the 3/8-In Extended Reach model delivering 3.9-In greater neck reach versus the DCF503.
