Keyless chuck replacement
« on: August 13, 2017, 08:55 PM »
I own a TI 15 LI 4,2 Plus. The key less chuck has completely seized in the open position. I was wondering if the  489373 key less chuck would be a compatible replacement?

Hi,

before you buy something - and I'm sure others can point you in the right direction as to which chuck will fit your TI 15.

One thing that comes to mind (although I'm not exactly sure if this is applicable with your chuck), have you checked if your chuck was simply opened to far? Does it make a "ratcheting" sound when you try closing it? If so, give it a really fast & hard turn by hand in closing direction.

Like demonstrated here:

Kind regards,

According to toolnut.com, this is the only replacement offered:

There is a specific replacement chuck for the TI. It is different from the other chucks. I have previously found the pos part number on EKAT.

Thank you everyone for the responses and help. I think the chuck is a goner, but I'll definitely replace since I use this drill daily.
