  • Loss of variable speed in an impact driver

    I have the Ridgid R8823 - cannot remember how it functioned when new (don't use it a ton), but it seems to not have a variable speed trigger anymore - the drill functions just fine, but pulling the trigger results only in top speed, which is a royal pain when starting screws. Can a drill still function, yet lose it's ability to have a variable speed trigger? Or is this just how this drill is supposed to be?
    thanks,
    Mark

    Sure it can. Hopefully, if you bought this new, you registered it into the LLSA Program. If so, just take it to a Ridgid Service Center and have them replace the switch at no charge.

      It's already at the shop, under my LSA. It's been taking awhile (that's another story for another day), but it dawned on me since I took it in that maybe that was how it was SUPPOSED to be. anyway, thanks for the answer.
