  1. I purchased the Milwaukee 2604-22 kit, Comes with the hammer drill, 2 of the 4 amp hour batteries and a charger. I purchased brand new, So i opened it and i noticed both batteries were dead (single led blinking) and none would turn the chuck, but the led work light came on. I charged one fully and when i tried the drill it was the same deal, Only the work light came on, Battery was full and was not even warm. Frustrated i charged the other only to find the same issue. I had an idea to turn the flywheel while holding the trigger, It did nothing... So i tried turning it and then pressing the trigger, When i did it that was it would run for a brief second before stopping and only the light on, I kept doing it until the drill finally pulled through and started chooching. When i put a load on it it stopped 2 more times and it hasn't again, Only used it in my 9h work shift though so time will tell. So im wondering if anyone has had a similar issue and any ideas on what may be the cause? Would it be the drill, or the batteries due to possibly being dead so long, Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. (This is my first tool from the red side)
  2. Hi, I have a Makita HP1621F which is a keyless 1/2” hammer drill. It’s a nice drill, but the chuck has finally failed on me. It will tighten, but after a few minutes use it loosens. First question: does this mean I need to replace just the chuck or might the problem instead/also be with the spindle, compression spring, ball bearing, retaining ring or helical gear, all of which have a bearing on the chuck (see the parts diagram at: https://www.ereplacementparts.com/makita-hp1621f-hammer-drill-parts-c-97_16247_1585.html) I’d hate to throw it away for want of a chuck. Unfortunately, the Makita replacement chuck, even on eBay is pricey ($50 new). I don’t want to spend a lot of money on a new part for an old tool which itself has an uncertain life. It’s only worth getting a replacement chuck for not too much money. So, I’m wondering if any forum readers could suggest an OEM or other chuck that would work in my Makita HP1621F. Note: the description on the drill itself, describes the drill as a 5/8" drill. However, all the descriptions of the drill I've ever seen (on eBay, for example) list it as a 1/2" hammer drill. The Makita replacement chuck is Part Number: 763192-3. My thanks in advance for your suggestions and help. I will very much appreciate them.

    If you are in the market for a really good hammer drill, allow me to recommend the Ridgid R5010 it has a great keyless chuck and a pulse mode that’s great for slow starting a bit without it walking or driving a screw like an impact driver. Made in Germany by Metabo for Ridgid, can be found on eBay for under $100

  5. Hey guys not sure if this is a big deal or not but I've been noticing over the past few months that my fuel drill is starting to wobble almost like an impact driver does. it was perfect when I first got it but seems to be getting worse. It's not just with this longer extension it's with drill bits, my hole saws, even small or short bits too... I originally thought then a few things were bent but they are not. Everything on the drill seems tight, is this normal for an eight month old drill that's used around the house for DIY? I have attached two videos below, let me know if anyone needs to see anything else. https://youtu.be/wRZ5Bp-vENM https://youtu.be/75b0YpFFyM4
  6. I thought this would be a good thread to start & will help a lot of people out when at the store. Post info, links, & pictures of your top three favorite driver bit/drill bit "kits". Then post 2-3 of your favorite bits, attachments, extensions, etc that do not come in the kits you use.
  7. Got a chance to talk to my Milwaukee rep last night and he gave me a few tools to try out. Most of them have been used to show customers how they work, but are still in pretty good shape. Tools: M12 Fuel SDS 5/8" hammer drill Laser Distance Meter (I wasn't even aware they made this) M12 Right Angle Drill (This was awesome since I started a topic earlier on this!) Two pack of vice grips M12 Blue Tooth Radio The top three will be cool to mess around with, I have about five pairs of vice grips, but it never hurts to try a new product. When I get time later I will post a few photos. The hammer drill is the most used, but if I like it I am pretty sure I can get it cheaper because of that fact. Thanks, FB82
  8. I got to use this product a little while back, so I figured I would share about it. I am assuming I am not the first to post on this, but none the less, here it goes. First, the power and speed of this tool is amazing. I am not even that big of a Hilti fan (price $$$) but this tool is the real deal in my opinion. I borrowed it at work from the plumbing contractor and had to drill a few holes in concrete for dowels. It easily drilled the 5/8" holes that I needed to drill. Also, the dust extractor kit for the tools is pretty handy as well. I didn't use this application, but I witnessed some overhead drilling and it works great. I am currently building a new addition on a hospital, so this tool is very handy for dust control! In terms of the tool I would recommend it, but most people can't afford to spend over a grand on one tool, let alone something that you might not be using everyday. FB82
  9. At the Home Depot and I saw this deal on a 1" hammer drill for $199.99. Seems decent since it also comes with a 4 1/2" grinder. Fair market price?
  10. Hello all, Been lurking on the forums, finally decided to sign up. I need your guys help in making my next purchase. My budget is $650 and I'm looking to get an Impact Driver/ A drill/ and an SDS plus rotary hammer. I'm looking for all cordless and preferably brushless. I'm down to the following unless you have a better suggestion: ***Option 1 Makita Xt25m combo kit for $384.97 ( The promo also includes a free dual 18vx2 36v rotary hammer ) So this would give me the ( xph07z Hammer Drill, Xtd01z Impact, & free xhrz053 Dual battery rotary hammer) Then I could use and additional $150 to buy to 4.0 batteries for the rotary and be at a total of $534 which would give me 3 tools, 4 batteries and I would just be lacking a case for the rotary but I would still have an extra $120 to spend - My thoughts- I wish the impact was the LXTD06 model( I would hate having the xtd01zmodel knowing a brand new a better version exists) , the rotary is not brushless & is rather large, no life indicator on the batteries, but I get 4 batteries 3 tools and money to spare, wish I hade a case for the rotary though *** Option 2 Bosch Clpk233181L kit for $369, then also purchase the Bosch Rhh181bl rotary bare tool with box for $268.99 So this would give the ( DDS182 hammer drill, IDH182 Impact, Rhh181 rotary for $637.99, so 3 tools, 3 cases but only 2 batteries and I max my budget -My thoughts - I love the fact that each model is the companies latest and greatest model, the impact seems really cool & Everything here is brushless, everything has a case, the downside is I would be short a battery and maxed out on the budget, the rotary also seems pretty cool for how light is is. ***Option 3 Milwaukee 2797-22 M18 fuel combo for $399,Milwaukee 2612-21 rotary $150(-$150 off Home Depot discount) So this would give me the ( 2604-20 Hammer, 2653-20 impact & 26-21 rotary for $548. So I end up with 3 tools, 3 cases, 3batteries and 2 chargers and $100 to spare -My thoughts- I wish the drill was the newer model hammer, same with the makita impact it will make me made knowing that I just bought something new when there is an updated version out, I love that the impact is the companies best model, my concern with this deal is the rotary, it's not brushless. And more importantly it only has 2 settings! I want that 3rd hammer only chipping setting. Ideally I would get the 2712-20 model instead since it is also $299 and has the 3 settings and is brushless, the only issue is it is not available for the -$150 off Home Depot discount and it is a bare tool so no battery and no case and it would put me over budget since it's not included on the Home Depot -$150 deal. I am not a professional just an at home DIY. I do own a sports performance facility and bolt several peices of fitness equipment to concrete floors and walls, as well as break down and put together several peices of fitness equipment. I am that crazy picky guy that likes all the bells and whistles and the latest and greatest. I hate cheap stuff and going the affordable route to sacrife quality. I'm all about having the quality,but I still have a $650 budget for these 3 tools. Also I don't own any platform at the moment so I will be buying into a platform, but there aren't that many additional tools that I would need. I want to make this purchase by the end of the wk. Please offer any opinions, advice, thoughts etc. on helping me make this decision. Thanks for taking your time to read this and help me out.
