Question about Craftsman Drills
I need to change the chuck on my craftsman cordless hammer drill, I have the screw inside the chuck out but can't get the chuck to screw off the motor shaft. Do I need a special tool? Craftsman 19.2 volt model # 315.115430
No you dont need a special tool.
Some models the chuck threads off, and some it pulls off.
On your model it threads off, but it is a reverse thread. And being its a hammer drill its going to take some strong effort to remove it, as the hammer action has made it very tight.
I have in the past had to take the drill appart and hold the main shaft and use large channel locks to remove the chuch.

"Do I need a special tool?" (sic) Well sort of, you see you need, a slim tool that will grip the flat on the shaft to immobilize the shaft, so you can then grasp the chuck, to screw it off.
As a workaround why not pop off to your local Craftsman supplier/repairer and ask them to get it off, they have all the tools, and i doubt they would even charge you.
Or make a tool to fit?
