Question about Dewalt Drills

1 Answer

What can cause this issue

I have a Milwaukee m12 impact driver and I absolutely love it the torque is comparable to my 20v dewalt unfortunately the last couple of days I can not get my batteries to charge the charger shows the solid red light indicating that it is charging unfortunately that's the extent of it I can leave it on the charger for 8 hours and if still only shows the red light and put on the impact it gives me the same charge level as when I put it on the charger

If the battery is older than 1 year replace the battery with a new one , also I know its difficult but try to not charge a battery till its dead , short cycle charging of battery's kills em fast if battery is less than 1yr contact Milwaukee its still under warranty

Testimonial: "The impact was new at Christmas time last year I do not short cycle charge the batteries I run them until they will no longer turn the screws but will still barely turn the Chuck with no pressure and this is happening with both of the batteries that I have and happened at the same time very odd"

My dewalt impact gun dcf885 when I press trigger the motor starts then dies

Mick, this could be a sign of a worn out/faulty motor, mine did this, ripped it apart and it was the motor. Yours may still be under 3 year warranty if you can find your receipt.

Thank You for the response.I guess I need a air Impact wrench instead of the DeWalt Electric

Or compare before with 18Volt Milwaukee FUEL impact wrench on Li Ion Battery [ try before you buy ] its having very much power.
But if you have work the whole day job the best choise for long lasting air tools
