Question about Drills
I did the intl. 9 hr charge and only got 2 screws drilled in before drill went dead. charged again for 2 hrs and same thing. the battery is not holding a charge please help
Batteries sometimes get like yours, after a full charge they last only a couple minutes on the tool. It's usually because of a bad cell in the battery. The only fix is to replace the battery. If you just bought it, take it back for an exchange of the battery or whole tool kit. If the retailer you bought it from won't exchange it contact the company it came from to find out how to get the battery replaced under their warranty.

Time to replace the batteries. Some batteries will not last very long. My original ni-cads on a Ryobi lasted only 1yr, and the replacement ones are 2yrs old and are still OK. You might be able to check the manufacturing date on your original batteries and that will give you an idea of how long they sat on the shelf before you started using them. Rechargable batteries have limited shelf life.

If this is a newer tool it is probably a Torx drive screw usually a T20. The screw is LH thread and after removing it you will need to put some screws back in tool to remove the chuck. First shift the gear selector to the low setting and the clutch to the drill only. Next get a bent handle allen wrench about the capacity of the chuck install the short end of wrench in chuck and tighten. Put the chuck on a block or wood or a workbench to support is and turn the wrench to about a 30 degree angle in the counterclockwise position. The chuck has standard threads so you want to hit the wrench with a hammer to loosen it. This might take a few tries but it will work. Good luck

there is a gear and a clutch as agier said in the head. if its old it looses its catch, youll need to take it apart and look at it. the torque setting just tightens on the head the more you tighten it the less it will give( the ratcheting you hear when you set it low) .expensive drill so its worth trying to fix. how old is it? as for drilling thru knots and hard wood make sure your bits are sharp, you can spend alot of time trying to drill with a dull bit. do you sharpen your bits? i do alot of drilling with battery drill thruout the year and believe me a sharp bit is waaaay easier. though ive never had to sharpen concrete bit because they always break when they get old and i buy new.
so your saying it stops completley when you hit something hard, right. does it ratchet?
