long handled ratchets are available from Snapon ( & Mac, i am pretty sure ). but prices reflect the brand name. i have assembled a couple of these from shorthandled flex head ratchets and pull handles ( my machine shop skills & equipment are non-existant ). tool manufacturers have gotten wise to this practice by changing the sizes of the components (width of the "fork", dia. of the pin, etc i love the additional leverage these tools provide.
