How do i put a drill bit?


An impact driver won't work very well as a drill. In fact it will probably break drill bits in anything but very soft material (like drywall). A drill bit needs a smooth continuous motion, because it cuts continuously as it turns. An impact driver turns with a staccato motion.

My impact driver is not this model its a dc827 but it quit hammering it just free wheels if you just slightly pull the trigger is kinda works is there anything i can do to fix this prolbem?


The pinion on front of motor is slipping on motor shaft. It seems to be just a press fit. Seems like a flaw in design. I had same problem. I took my dw056 apart and took pinion off motor and pressed groves into motor shaft with side cutter pliers. then pounded pinion back onto motor shaft. We will see how long this lasts the motor shaft is a softer metal. I feel the motor shaft should be hardened steel like the pinion and have a shear pin or some sort of spline to attach to pinion. Would like Dewalt to offer fix for this as I only used dw056 a couple of times before I had problem.

I have an 18 volt 1/2" drive cordless impact wrench made by DeWalt and when I pull the trigger the motor runs but not the anvil?


Sounds like you have a gear broke that runs from the motor to the shaft. Take it apart and check it out. easy to put back together. atleast you will know for sure and may fix it while it's opened up.

Hi from dublin,my third dewalt dw054 impact 14.4v cordless drill,they all lose power,as if the switch does not work,but i think the motor is gone.. They all went the same way after two years..great drill...


Hi there, the first thing you need to do is check the carbon brushes, there will be two of these one at each side of the motor, if these are ok then test if power is getting to the motor, to do this you will need to split the casing on the tool in half. You may need a torx driver to undo the screws on the casing. Once you have removed the screws, very carefully split the casing making sure you leave the gearbox assy, motor and switch in the other half. Insert battery onto the unit and get someone to hold the motor in place just incase the machine starts. get a voltmeter, follow the wires from the switch to the motor and where the wires attach to the motor put the probes of the voltmeter and pull the switch to engage it. You should be gettting a good voltage now, If you are then the switch is ok. hope this is of some help

if you use it every day, it would be normal for the battery to be at the end of its life. ni cads are usually good for 300 charges/discharges

Tired old Dewalt dw056 impact driver


It needs a new battery pack. Rechargeable batteries eventually wear out and no longer hold a charge. The tool runs only briefly and the battery is exhausted again. The big home centers and online sources sell replacements. There are also companies that say they can rebuild your battery pack at much lower cost than replacement. I have no experience with them.

its supposed to impact immediately that is what gives the tool its power. once you get used to it you will use it for everything its lighter and more powerfull than the drill. just dont use spade bits in it or it will shatter them. try to buy tips that are impact ready
