new fatmax 14.4 drill wont start under load

Postby mattstra » Wed Apr 19, 2017 9:09 pm

I bought a new fatmax 14.4 drill it looked impresseive but its rubbish it just stops under the slightest load , you can stop the chuck from spinning wih your bare hand with a fully charged battery, any advice would be gratefull received, surely this cant be normal I have had makitas for 25 years and never suffered this problem, regards matt

14.4? Where did you get that from?! I don't think there has ever been a 14.4 Fatmax drill released in the U.K.!
