Milwaukee Tool 56 Piece Socket Set Preview – 48-22-9008
Mechanics take note, expanding on their platform, the Milwaukee Tool 56 piece socket set gives the namesake a pretty impressive slate for the mechanic. Offering these kits in a self-contained kit, it’s also a great fit for under the seat or back of the SUV.
Milwaukee Tool 56 Piece 48-22-9008 Features
The first feature you notice with the Milwaukee sockets is the square end. This not only provides a great place for a wrench for leverage but it also keeps the sockets from rolling away when not on the ratchet. Large, bold engraved numbers provide easy-to-read markings, and the markings last a lifetime. Typical socket material, the chrome vanadium offers durable construction and an easy-to-clean finish.
Pro Tip: It’s proven that 4 out of 5 dentists agree, less 10mm Milwaukee sockets are lost than any other brand. –Not proven
Looking at the ratchet internals, a 90-tooth gear and pawl setup provide the 4° of arc swing. The ratchets also include a slim profile on the head which allows access in tight areas. This Milwaukee Tool 56 piece kit comes with metric and SAE sockets, and the 48-22-9008 kits include a lifetime warranty. The 3/8″ kit comes with 27 standard length and 25 deep well sockets. Also included in the kit is one 3/8″ Milwaukee 90T ratchet, a 3-inch extension, one 6-inch extension, and a universal adapter.
