Question about Makita HR2455X 1" Rotary Hammer Drill

1 Answer

Bits will not lock into chuck

Difficult to pull back to open chuck. The bits will not lock into the chuck. Is this a situation I can fix or do I need to take it to the shop. The HR 2455X has been used very little. Thank you for your help.

First I would go to Makitatools.com and download a schematic for this tool. But it is pretty simple to remove the rubber dust shield and plastic collar to look for debris and proper movement in the chuck assembly. Make sure also that you are using the right SDS bits in tool. You should be able to push the bit into the collar and twist until it goes into and locks. Let me know and I will help further

How do I load the drill bits in the keyles chuck of my Metabo impact drill Model SBE 561?


Keyless chucks work one of two ways
1: Simply turn the chuck by hand to loosen or tighten drill bit, once it grips the drill bit you will not be able to turn it anymore
2: Some keyless chucks operate by pulling the chuck back towards the body of the drill, placing the drill bit in and then releasing the chuck back to its original position

Don't know how to attach a screw on to my corded Skil 3/s drill. Is there a special bit for this purpose?


Hi auntygamma,

Welcome to fixya!

Yes, you need to use a bit with all drills. They come in different sizes and shapes. If you don't have any bits to put into your drill, an all purpose kit would be nice to have. You can find them at your local hardware store or online.

Check out this webpage: http://www.toolup.com/dewalt_dw2163_37-piece-screwdriving-set-with-tough-case.aspx

Copy and paste this entire web address into your browser and a page with one of the kits on it will open up for you. You don't have to buy a kit with lots of bits, you can pick up just one or two bits that you would use the most at the hardware store. The most used bits would be the #1 and #2 Phillips bits and a couple of different sizes of flat bladed bits. A few drill bits might come in handy too.

The drill that you have has a keyless chuck. This means you don't need any special tools to put in a bit or change one. If you look at the chuck, you'll see that the ridged part has two sections. If you hold the back section with your left hand, you can turn the front section to either open the chuck or close it to put bits in.

I don't know if this was clear or not, but if you have any problems or more questions about this, please be sure to reply back. I'll be glad to help you.

Thanks,
Handie Andie

Hilti te 10 - how do I change the bit ? and lock it good...


The end of the drill is 2 parts hold the bottom part(closes to the drill) and turn the top part (the end the bits in) and turn it a 1/4 turn counter clockwise that opens the chuck then pull the bit out to replace do the opposite. Don't let the end at the drill spin or it will come off the drill completely if that happens simply line it back up and tap it hard to get it back on

How do you lock the bits in?


Insert sds bit into chuck with slots/slot matching slot in chuck while pulling back on the spring loaded nose. If the bit does not catch try turning/rotating bit to lock. When you release the nose, a pin will drop into the indention on bit and prevent it from falling out during use. Sometimes this pin will break or wear-out thus the bit will not catch. Before you insert the bit, look into chuck for retaining pin. Pulling back on the spring loaded chuck releases pressure on the pin and allows insertion of bit.

I dont have the manel and need to no how to use it


The drill uses bits with the SDS+ connection end. You have three different modes of operation. Hammer drill for drilling into concrete. Drill only for drilling into wood or steel and chip only for chiseling concrete. Now for drill only you would have to change out the chuck for a jacolbs style.

The bits just snap in the chuck. To remove the bits you just slide the chuck sleeve back and remove the bit. To change the chuck you wolulld place the palm of your hand over the chuck and using your fingers pull the sleeve on the chuck that is near the red housing towards your palm and just pull off the chuck.It will snap back on the same way.

How do I fit drill in this machine please? DEWALT D25113K D25113 3 MODE SDS


Youcan only use standard drill bits with the use of a chuck attachment with the SDS type bayonet. These hammer drills use an SDS type drill bit which just pushes into the fitted chuck and are released by pulling back on the lock mechanism on the chuck.

There is play in the chuck may be bearings. it means drill bit wanders slightly when drilling. drill bits lock in properly but the chuck has left to right play in it


You seem to have found the problem, now you must disassemble the gear head and remove the chuck. Open the chuck jaws wide and look for a screw inside that locks the chuck to the shaft.

The chuck is stuck how do you fix it


Pull the release back and use some pliars to pull it out, you may have to tap the bit first. All the torque from those bad boys sometimes makes the bits very had to get out.

Drill bits do not lock in chuck or will not go in at all.


If the picture that I am seeing is of the same that you have then I can tell you that those are special bits that are fluted on the shanks so they can hammer. Also those drills do not chuck up like a regular drill. You have to pull the collar down insert the bit and rotate it until it falls in and then release the collar. Remember these bits are specific to the drill and can be hard to find, a rental store is a good place to find them for sale. Hope this helps. 2rns4u <*{{{>(
