These ratchets are very comparable to the same series of snap on roto ratchet.

After using the 72-tooth Gearwrench Roto ratchet for 2 jobs (head gasket replacement on a '96 V6 Mustang and a timing belt on a '99 Honda CR-V), I have mixed reviews. The handle is a good length, the rubber handle is comfortable and the pivoting head is nice when it is necessary to clear hoses and obstacles (particularly nice for changing spark plugs). In my opinion, the Gearwrench Roto-ratchet is a nice tool that would complement other ratchets.

The gripe that I have is that there appears to be a fair amount of 'play' in the ratcheting mechanism. With 72 teeth, the tool will ratchet every 5 degrees. In theory, when tightening a bolt in tight quarters, rotating the ratchet backwards 5 degrees should engage a new tooth and the fastener can be tightened. In practice, due to play between the bolt head and socket, and the play in the ratcheting mechanism, the tool has to be reversed more than 5 degrees. I have found that my older 60-tooth Craftsman low-profile ratchet requires less reverse 'swing' to engage a new tooth. This was unexpected. Tightening the bolt for the alternator belt on the CR-V was challenging using the Roto-ratchet, but easy with the Craftsman low-profile ratchet.

I made a test jig where I fastened an 12mm 8.8 metric bolt through a piece of plywood using fender washers. I tightened the bolt until it took 10 ft-pound of torque to rotate it. I marked of 5 degree increments (using a pointer attached to the Roto-ratchet). Using the same Craftsman 6pt 19mm socket on both ratchets, I compared the amount that the Roto-ratchet had to be reversed compared to the Craftsman. The Roto-ratchet needs 20 degrees to 'click' and the Craftsman needs 15. In short, if you have 19 degrees of 'swing' the Roto-ratchet probably won't work, but the Craftsman will.

I bought these ratchets after using my friends snap-on roto ratchet, and loving it. I was going to go with the snap-on brand but I own alot of gear wrench tools which have never let me down so I went with gear wrench. The snap on ratchets will run you about 220$ for both, they look identical and operate just as well as the snap-on
only differance is the price trust me. I am a diesel mechanic who works on buses, I find myself in alot of tight sitiutions were a little angle can make all the differance. To put this short I use these ratchets as my first option, I put a serious beating on them all day every day they hold up and will work well for you as well . Love them.

these ratchets are nearly perfect for the price. i havent beat them up yet but i can tell they are solid if used correctly. this type of ratchet is for tight and awkward areas, not for breaking loose rusted nuts. the flex-head variation or even a breaker bar is for medium to heavy duty tasks while this can be used for everything else. you can even hold it straight and use it as a ratcheting bit driver. i recommend gun oil on the pivot and on the chrome and a rubber protectant like 303 aerospace on the handle. helps to keep it moving smoothly and be rust and grease stain free.
i would recommend the 3/4 flex head over the pivoting head since most 3/4 applications are torqued harder. thats why i purchased this 2pc set instead of the 3pc.

I have the Snapon 3/8 drive flex head 100 teeth and 1/4 drive 72 teeth flex head and all I can say is for the price of the Gearwrench YOU CANT GO WORNG!!!! For one the Snapon 3/8 drive 100 tooth has a very long handle, 12" if I remember right, it just doesnt make for a everyday/every job tool, the length of the Gear Wrench 3/8 drive is around 8 inches and is much better for all jobs. The quality and finish of the Gear Wrench compared to my snapon ones are almost equal, I think if you swapped logos from one to the other you would have never questioned it. At first I had the mentality that the Gearwrench would serve as back up tools but now that I got mine in Im using them all the time. If you go Snapon for this set you pay $190 to $210, I think $45 for this Gear Wrench set is hard to beat.

I have used traditional style ratchets all of my life but was very anxious to purchase a set with this roto style after using a snap on version belonging to a friend. After using these for almost a year I am extremely satisfied with the quality of these ratchets. The fit and finish is top notch and the action is smooth as silk. They are not made in America but in my opinion these GearWrench ratchets are 100% high quality!

I abused this ratchet and it just keeps working. I accidently dropped it a couple of times about 5ft and its mechanism still works I even use it to break bolts at 80ft lbs (Honda disc brake), still it never jammed on me. as a training technician this tool gets used, loaned out and worked 60 hrs per week am just amazed for a tool made overseas.

I bought the 3/8 ratchet for one specific use that I do many times a day. The torque I put into it is pretty high for this size ratchet; on the order of 22 to 30 ft/bl.

I have used it every work day for a month and no problems.
But that is not why I am reviewing. I came to say two things :

1. I bought the set because the dif between the individual 3/8 and the set with the 1/4 was $4. I would be crazy to not get the set even though I didn't have a specific need for the 1/4.
Ha, ha, ha . . . the first time I used the 1/4 it "broke". Meaning let go and slipped around and would not catch enough to even moderately tighten a fastener.

2. I swear I read some where here, but can not find it now, that someone said they didn't like these ratchets as much as their old ones because they couldn't take them apart.
Well.
Since I had nothing to loose and wasn't going to try to get a replacement for my dead 1/4 I took mine apart. See my photo. One needs two picks similar to the ones in my photo. Two surprising things I found when I took it apart. I had put in like ten very small drops of super light Starrett instrument oil when I first got the ratchets. There was no trace of the oil; there was a hint of pasty grease but hardly any. Did the oil run back out while in my tool tray ? Possibly. Second it seems a few chips of dirt or black colored metal had been on the very shallow ratchet teeth in the body and had cause the ratchet pawl to not seat into the mating teeth. There was a corresponding mark on the pawl. I used one of the picks to dig the stuff out of the teeth, there was hardly any but enough to cause problems. I oiled the pawl and put some on the teeth in the body and put it back together.
