The chuck on my Ryobi seized at the start of the year with about 5 years of faithful service under its belt. I would have been satisfied with a replacement chuck however, the only way to detach the old one from the drill was by pulling it apart. So I all of a sudden found myself in the market for a new drill and decided to go for something a bit further up in terms of quality.
After some research this was the drill I settled on due to the obvious build quality and list of other features (ratcheting chuck, massive amounts of torque, quick ch...arging batteries). When I finally got my hands on this drill it was in another league to anything else I had previously handled. Truly impressive amounts of power and a very comfortable grip. I even consider the comically long extension handle to be a positive feature due to its power. My only problem with this drill is I have run out of jobs for it to do at the moment. After building a 10m X 4.2m shed, fixing up a old 6 X 4 trailer and every other odd job that pops up around the house I still consider it to be a fantastic purchase and well worth that extra you pay for it over the cheaper brands.
Questions & Answers
I have 3 x 6ah batteries which are only just over a year old.
One of these batteries stopped taking a charge about 3 months ago - the charger indicates that the battery is faulty.
When I tested it with a voltmeter it indicates that the battery is fully charged.
The second battery has now within the last two weeks started to only charge for about 10 minutes before the charger indicates it is fully charged.
However it now only works for a few minutes before the tool automatically switches off due to low charge.
What do I need to do to rectify these issues with the two batteries?
