Milwaukee has announced that they are coming out with a full line of flex-head ratcheting combination wrenches.

The new Milwaukee flex-head ratcheting wrenches feature a 12pt box end design with 144 ratcheting positions for a 2.5° arc swing.

At the open end, Milwaukee’s MAX BITE grooves are said to improve fastener grip and allow for 25% more torque compared to smooth-faced wrench openings.

The wrenches have I-beam-shaped handle for user comfort and ergonomics, similar to Milwaukee’s other combination wrenches.

Milwaukee Flex-Head Ratcheting Wrench Pivot Screw

The flexible box end features a hex fastener at the pivot, allowing users to tighten them up if needed or to suit their preferences.

As an aside, Milwaukee does not make hex keys, L-wrenches, or T-handle drivers… yet?

This seems to have been a natural progression for Milwaukee Tool – adding flex-head ratcheting wrenches to their mechanics tool lines.

They’ve been expanding their mechanics hand tools selection, and already offer ratcheting and non-ratcheting combination wrenches.

Thus, this isn’t a big surprise.

However, there’s one surprise takeaway that I didn’t anticipate, and that’s the open stock SKUs. All 30 wrenches have individual SKUs and prices, indicating that you can buy them separately.

As Milwaukee has been expanding their hand tool selection, their focus has been on sets and bundles. They have since started offering socket rails and separate ratchets, and this is another step in that direction.

When they were just starting out, sets made sense. But now, graduating to also offering open stock SKUs is a big deal that shows how serious Milwaukee Tool is about growing their presence in the automotive hand tool industry. And, they’re none done yet.
