Dcd995 gear issue

Recommended Posts

This is my third premium hammer drill, coming from 18 v 925 to dcd 985 and now dcd995. The gear shift sometimes locks in the 2nd gear? It seems you have to pull the trigger and move the chuck a bit to real ease it. I already exchanged it and it does the same on the second drill? Is this a known issue?

Is this something to be looked at? To tout a premium drill as having a quirk that should not be a problem seems to be sub par in terms of quality assurance. I demand a lot from my tools in my job and that is why I have stayed with Dewalt.

It's not a "quirk", it's just the way the gears mesh. It is really common in 3 speed drills.
