marrt Posted November 8, 2011 Report Share Posted November 8, 2011 I have two new 18v DC827 impact drivers. Both units put off a really bad odor when I let off the trigger. It's like a burning smell but worse. I realize the break may cause some sparks and ozone. But this smell is much worse. Further, the fan blows straight in your face most of the time, so it's hard to ignore. My old 14.4 drivers never smelled. I've completely wrapped both drivers in duct tape but I still get the smell. Will this get better with time? Do the new 20v drivers have this problem too? I love these drivers because they really fit my hand well and Dewalt's LiOn technology is the best. However, I can't take this smell blowing in my face all day. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
