  • Ridgid 18V Impact - Collar Is Rusty

    Bought a 18v impact and driver combo. Been using the impact a lot and I have noticed increasingly it is harder to insert and bit and remove it from the collar. Have to jiggle and push and pull to get a bit on and off.

    Taking a closer look the collar and it's interior surface has a rusty red tint to it. I wonder if it's getting corroded? Now I do live in Miami where it's 200% humidity 80% of the year LOL, I don't know if that has anything to do with it. No I did not drop the impact down a drain or a pool.

    Is this something I should be concerned about getting it serviced? Or should I spray some WD40 into the collar and see?
