I seem to remember a conversation where numerous people on the board had gearbox issues with their LXT Drill/Driver/Hammer.
Starting on Sunday, mine sounds like it has gravel in the "3" speed and it barely spins. Speeds 1 and 2 are OK as far as I can tell.
This is really aggravating because it's over a year old and I don't have a leg to stand on with Makita. I really don't want to pay to fix this issue since it's seems to be a design fault.
Adding insult to injury, I just bought the white Makita drill/driver thanks to Greg Burnet's killer deal for $119. It's a recon, but the drill appears to be brand new as do the charger and one battery. The second battery is definitely beat up making me wonder if they replace the cells on the recon batteries. The drill seemed to work fine, but I realized the LED light is dead.
So now, I have TWO drills that are out of service and I'll have to buy a third one while these are down. What a pain in the neck. Please help.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
