Question about Makita 12V Cordless Impact Driver - 6980FDWDE

1 Answer

Can't get the keyless chuck off cordless Makita 6095D drill.

The drill stopped working, dead. The batteries hold a charge fine. I tried getting the case apart to look for something loose or disconnected, and couldn't get the chuck off. Rather than a screw head inside the chuck, there is some other kind of head I can't budge with an allen wrench. What to do?

If this is a newer tool it is probably a Torx drive screw usually a T20. The screw is LH thread and after removing it you will need to put some screws back in tool to remove the chuck. First shift the gear selector to the low setting and the clutch to the drill only. Next get a bent handle allen wrench about the capacity of the chuck install the short end of wrench in chuck and tighten. Put the chuck on a block or wood or a workbench to support is and turn the wrench to about a 30 degree angle in the counterclockwise position. The chuck has standard threads so you want to hit the wrench with a hammer to loosen it. This might take a few tries but it will work. Good luck

How do I remove the drill bit from a Makita6223D?


If your drill has the original keyless chuck on it, there are two plastic rings on the chuck. The outer ring should tighten and loosen by hand enough to hold the bit(s). The inner ring is to hold on to if the chuck gets overtightened. Chucks do wear and get corroded over time and can get locked in position. If you can't get it loose by hand, channel lock pliers can help. If the chuck is that bad you may need to replace it.

Keyless chuck drill just spins


Some times the selector on top get gummed up with dust, it just needs cleaning. You were right to put it into 1st gear to remove the chuck with a big allen key, you get more resistance in the gears.

As long as the charger voltage and the battery voltage match (7 volts) there should be no problem. A fast charger just runs more current thru the battery (per unit time) than a not-so-fast charger. If you notice the battery getting really hot when it's charging (like too hot to touch), stop using it.

Keyless chuck


You will find a screw inside the chuck that needs to come out first of all but beware that it will be a reverse thread. This is to stop it loosening whilst in use. then you will need to unscrew the chuck but it isn't easy as you have to hold the shaft that the chuck is attatched to. You can sometimes take the chuck off by holding it and pulling the trigger while in reverse. (but they can be stuck fast).
