My experience of "Quick Chucks" regardless of whether American or European, (Let's forget Chinese) is that for demanding work, one has to be carefull to tighten the chuck quite seriously. This applies espescially to hole saws etc. Any "Quick Chuck" tightened "on the fly" will jam! If this is a reccuring problem, then I would (dare to) suggest changing to a key chuck.
Hi, I run a tool repair shop, and we just got on board as an authorized warranty service center for Ridgid/Ryobi/Homelite. I have had this problem over the years with DeWalt drills. 1. if chuck is off drill, soak the chuck in vinegar overnight. 2. run the drill in reverse while gently tapping down on the chuck with a rubber or fiberglass hammer, this works real well.
i have the 18 v dewalt and if my bit id stuck i hold the chuck ring back and take my hammers claw end and tap on the bit in the outward way and it comes right out . i found that cheep bits get stuck a lot more then good ones ,but if your using it a lot with all the hammering with the impact you can expect this to happen on all impact drivers so its not just ridgid
