Hi there have just joined and am going to ask what maybe a stupid question. I have just purchased a brand new makita twin set of impact driver and drill. I had a look at the drill and tried using the keyless chuck to see how it worked and how to insert drill bits. I have followed all the instructions and cant get it to work. At the end of the drill is just a massive hole and the three prongs are far inside and i cant get them to move at all and the chuck doesnt seem to turn in any direction so unless i am being stupid and doing something wrong i believe it may be faulty. I appreciate any help before i return it to b and q.

if you cant get it to close by rotating the chuck clockwise facing from the front with out using any tools that may mark take it to bxq and let them try to tighten it and place the ball in there court

The chuck used on that ,model looks identical to the pne on the DHP456 and other 18 volt models - a single barrel design. As B-A says, if you can't tighten it (by turning anticlockwise when the handle is in your right hand, the tool in front of you and them chuck is gripped in the left hand) then it's the vendors problem.

BTW, did you purchase the drill with any intention of buying other compatible tools in the future? Only asking because this tool is a "G-series" tool so the battery packs are incompatible with the "D-series" trade tools and AFAIK only a combi drill, impact driver and jigsaw are available in the G-series range
