Repair or replace hammer drill

Recommended Posts

Expensive fix for a fix. Especially if you cannot dial in the problem 100%.  It looks like that's the problem but what if it's not the whole issue? Is there any chance it could be in conjunction with something else? If there is that possibility that should make the decision a little easier to make.

 

Hey, welcome to the forum!

Unfortunately things aren't meant to be so easily serviced these days either because of expensive parts or difficulty actually doing the repair.... Then sometimes you have to buy a whole assembly to get what you want, in my case it was the clothes dryer I had to just move on and get a new one....

How old and was it exposed to rain or extremely dusty conditions?

If you're hellbent on staying with the cords I'd buy this and have parts to switch between the both of them that you can repair yourself.

If you'd consider upgrading and I recommend it, get a bulldog man...it's a much better machine and design at an affordable price.

That works too, same difference. Not sure if you had the twist chuck or what with the old one but if you're not familiar with SDS make sure to use lubricant in small amounts frequently, things get ridiculously hot very very quickly causing premature wear and even breakage.  

 

You're going to be very pleased with the difference, there's no comparison between hammer drill and SDS.

Ha

I still grin everytime I pull my sds drill out, thinking I used to be content with forcing a weak hammer drill against concrete to do a job with a mechanism that was probably thrown in as an afterthought lol!
