The gearbox or clutch mechanism on my 14.4v DW991 cordless drill gave out while I was driving 1/4″ lagscrews on my deck. Drill is about 2 years old, not a lot of usage. Went out and bought a new one (they wanted $80 to fix the old one) so now I have 4 batteries and 2 chargers.
My question is since I don’t want a reoccurance of that breakdown, is a drill like the DW983 capable of driving lag screws regularly? Was my breakdown unusual? It seems to me that at that price they should be capable of doing anything the motor will turn.
