PDC4 Drill
« on: March 26, 2018, 05:49 AM »
Just purchased the 18v PDC4 and noticed that the metal ring on the end of the 13mm chuck keeps spinning after chuck stops. Its bloody annoying haha. Has anyone else had this issue? Cheers

Not sure it's an 'issue'.  It's designed to prevent the chuck damaging any surface it comes into contact with. Like when drilling deep into a corner.
there's nothing like the right tool for the job

It definitely is a feature. Apart from damage prevention, the ring also allows for fine control when precise drilling is required -- you can hold the chuck part of the drill by hand and guide it with much higher degree of precision.
