There should be a tension screw inside the chuck, I don't remember if it is a phillips or allen head, that you can loosen to free up the chuck.Anyone have a problem like this with yours? I opened the chuck all the way, it's stuck all the open. Tried everything, wd40, holding it with channel locks, what now? it's STUCK ! I just got this one too! Damn
All of my Dewalt drills hit the trash heap a long time ago, both corded and cordless.Have had the same thing happen to my dewalt hammer drill many times. Gears stripped out in the damn thing after about 2 months. No auger bits of any type used. Just paddle bits, and masonary bits. I am through with dewalts tools altogether.
I did some research. This is the newer self tightening chuck. It's not suppose to come off the drill without a tool? I took mine off! There are no set screws on this chuck. This is the second one in three months, it's the DC925, I'm done with this garbage. I'm heading back out to the garage for one last attempt at it with a HAMMER to see if I can loosen up the chuck. If not it's trash. New chuck is 50 plus bucks, screw them.All of my Dewalt drills hit the trash heap a long time ago, both corded and cordless.
Believe me I gave it a couple of good wacks alright and it worked. I shouldn't have to repair my hammer drill with a fricken HAMMER!!!!:furious:ive always used milwalkee hammer drills , have had good luck with them & the batteries are cheaper then dewalt. hey ranger use a sledge hammer!!! KA-WAM!!
Ok. So now we have ( Slowes, Lowes, Home creep-o, I think someone called it, and now we have default dewalt. Lol.
My Milwaukee corded sawzall and holehawg are still working fine too. Brand new in 95
