DeWalt hammer drill chuck locked to auger
« on: Mar 30, 2021, 05:56 PM »
Seems that all my gear decide to wait until the end of the season to go up in flames LOL. At least it waited!

My dcd996 DeWalt hammer drill chuck is locked on the auger.  I can turn the chuck a bit but it locks either way. 

Anyone fix this issue?  Going to be tough to ship it with the auger attached LOL

Lol, that's a good thing that it waited, maybe use a pair of channel locks or vice grips to see if you can loosen it.

I’m in the construction industry and run into that situation from time to time. Try taking a hammer with a flat punch or heavy regular screwdriver, tap on the three jaws that hold bits in the head. Sometimes, tapping each of them in, will unlock the chuck on the inside of the chuck head. Good luck!

Have to tap mine a time or to also. The licking mechanism seems to stick.

Thanks guys - fixed with gripping a pipe wrench over the chuck and running slowly in reverse. 

Phew!

Appreciate the post HD - the things you can find on YouTube!  Will keep this in mind when running up against this issue.
