I own a DC988 XRP drill. I recently used it for drilling some holes. While drilling I heard a pop and now the drill only spins at a slow speed. Any advice as to what component needs replacing? Brushe


That drill had several speed options, do you have it on high?

Brushes are usually a power/torque issue and wouldn't effect speed unless they were really bad

What speed would i need to set my cordless drill at to put hole in wall


Your drill will drill a hole at any speed, the drill bit needs to be sharp to drill the mateirial.The type of wall material is important.Drywall is soft but a masonry bit should be used.A masonry bit has a flat bar accross the point and slower speeds are best.Wood walls / studs you need wood bits that are sharper and medium to high speeds are used.Concrete or Block walls again require Masonry bits.If very hard concrete as in foundation walls or filled block the use of a Hammer drill will work much faster.Good Luck

YES. You have dirt and grime inside.Go to a Lowes or Home depot and look in the nail gun dept. Get a can of Paslode tool cleaner.( white aerosol can with orange and black label) $8 a can. While running tour drill,(over a sink or outside) spray it all inside aroud trigger and motor,turn in all directions and watch how much gunk will wash out. You'll be suprised at what a difference this will make and it will prolong the life of your tool. Works great on all battery powered tools and air tools ! I highly recommend it, but don't buy them out of it , leave some for me. I;m allmost out of it.

Amount of torque per setting in dewalt dc925 xrp


The torque settings are not tightly controlled so they are not all that repeatable from drill to drill. They also vary somewhat with the speed of the drill and the condition of the battery. And they aren't linear (a setting of 10 is not twice the 5 setting) Simplest thing to do for a rough idea is to use your hand to hold the chuck still to feel how much torque you have at each setting. (start low and grip it tight!) If you want a specific torque setting, say 10 ft-lbs, then put a stout screw in a scrap of wood, hang a 10 lb weight on it 12 inches from the screw and adjust until it just starts to slip.

How is a driver different from a drill? What


Hello, W/D here.

A very good question......A drill holds a bit and rotates it at a given speed. This speed can be variable, allowing the speed of the drill bit to be better matched to the material being drilled. The output from the drill motor goes directly to the chuck, and the power is directly applied to the drill bit. Some drills can generate a tremendous amount of direct torque, due to the nature of their gearing. Most of the better drills have planetary gears in them.
A driver rotates like a drill, but is designed to apply torque to a driving bit, and cause a fastener to be placed by the driver. The main difference between a drill and a driver is that a driver has an adjustable clutch, allowing the amount of torque being applied to a fitting to be preset. A good example of this would be for driving wood screws. You would dial in the torque setting that you want the driver to quit driving the screw. You don't want to drive the screw to China, you want to drive it flush. A maximum torque setting "locks" the clutch, and the fitting will be driven as far as it can go (This is about as close to being called a drill as a driver will ever get). A clutch setting midway might be just right for driving the same fitting into oak, and a setting at less than that might be just right for pine. The torque clutch effectively sets a kick out torque for the driver. When the torque applied matches the torque set on the driver, the clutch "slips", and no further driving action can occur.
Most modern battery powered drills incorporate a torque clutch between the motor and the chuck so that the tool can be operated as a drill (with the torque setting at "max") or as a driver (with the torque setting at less than max) some electric tools are configured as both, but usually they are different. For the money, a good battery powered drill/driver with a clutch offers more versatility, in my opinion.
Best regards, --W/D--

It sounds like you were between gears. When you are in neither low or high, you are sort of in neutral. Normally it isn't a big deal. It happens to me occasionally, and I do what you did. You should be OK.

My Craftsman 19.2 drill's adjustable torque clutch want allow drilling in forward gear.


Try with the drill chuck torque setting set to max. If no joy on that one, work tha low/high speed switch several times. If no luck there, you may need to open the drill and check for a loose linkage, or that something has slipped out of place. It's not difficult.

Make sure the speed lever is not in between speeds, if not, time to get a new clutch/tranny or take it back to Home Depot if its new. I think it comes in one piece. Please rate me.
