Question: DEWALT IMPACT DWO56

tpxyz

Tool run fine in forward and reverse at no load but does not engage impact portion what part need to replace.
Tinkerdave
Reply: DEWALT IMPACT DWO56

Tinkerdave

Hi tpxyz,
If what your saying is the anvil spins when there is no load on it but doesn't move at all when you have a load on it then generally speaking that indicates a loose pinion gear on the motor.The pinion gear is pressed on to the shaft of the motor and they will some times slip. If that's the case the motor and pinion will have to be replaced.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Question: SWITCH

DEWALT IMPACT DWO56 WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 38.00 $ SWITCH AND THE 64.00 $ SWITCH ? ARE THEY INTERCHANGEABLE ?
WJA
Reply: SWITCH

WJA

Hello PEP,

It looks like the difference between the two switches is the forward/reverse lever. On the part number 152274-23 the lever is included, hopefully this is what yours looks like. On the part number 152274-15. The lever is not included. It is part number, 607100-00. And the switches are not interchangeable.

Hope this helps,

Question: Dewalt DW056 Impact Driver

woodnchip

The driver will spin in forward position but won't turn the screw in. Reverse seems fine. Do I replace the motor or what? Thanks, Chip

Hello woodnchip,

Sine the motor seems to be working ok I would first check the 152274-23 switch to make sure it is working properly. They are usually the most common part to go out on a cordless drill. If you don't have the the means to check it take it to a local Dewalt Factory service center, they should be able to help you.

Hope this helps,

How is the retaining ring removed to repair the chuck?

Reply: Chuck Retaining Ring For DeWalt ...

Tinkerdave

Hi garyburk,With a small knife or I use an exacto knife find the open end of the retaining ring and gently pry the ring out and up over the detent. Some tools used a round retainer ring and some used a snap ring. Hope this helps.Good luck.

Question: Bit Extraction

939481

I put a standard (short) screwdriver bit into my Dewalt 18V impact driver. The bit has a small detent groove, but obviously not the large groove needed. When I used it I drove the bit back into the sleeve and it is jammed in. How do I remove it (and have I done damage)?

Reply: Grease Type For Dewalt DW 056

WJA

Hello 475778,

The only areas that would need lube would be the Anvil and maybe inside the Mechanism Assembly. Just enough to cover the parts is needed. A good lube to use would be Porter Cable part number 875914.

Hope this helps,

Question: DW 056-brushes

Sam

How do you remove the brushes on a DW056?
Mike
Reply: DW 056-brushes

Mike

Hi Sam. Unfortunately the brushes aren't replaceable on the Dewalt DW056. You could probably pry them out of the motor housing, but since there aren't any OEM brushes available, it wouldn't be helpful. In this case I would recommend replacing the entire motor, I'm sorry to say. It's available for around $50 and it's part #607990-03. You can purchase one here:

Question: Motor And Pinion

middy

what holds the pinion to the motor output shaft?
jesse
Reply: Motor And Pinion

jesse

I have the same problem with the pinion spinning freely on the motor shaft,
Does anyone have a fix for that problem ?

I thought about drilling the side of the pinion, tapping and fitting it with a set srew, sounds good dont it, I have'nt tried it, it's probably a hardened steel pinion which would make this task a lot more difficult, any ideas are welcome.

Question: Trigger

Kent

Trigger has a deadspot?
Mike
Reply: Trigger

Mike

Sounds to me like your switch is going bad. I'm guessing the problem will get worse until the switch becomes completely intermittent, then dead. It's an easy fix though, since all you have to do is replace the switch. For the Dewalt DW056 there are two switches available, part #152274-15 which does not come with the fwd/rev slider, and part #152274-23 which does come with the fwd/rev slider. Interestingly, the switch that comes with the slider is WAY cheaper so I'd go with that one.

I got the brush assembly out from the motor. The problem is they do not sell the brush for this model. We have to replace the motor or we may order similar brush and modify a little.

I tried to snap on the bit and looks like part number 10 is not holding. I pulled on sleeve but when I put the bit in it doesn't go back down. I need to find out what parts to get.

Question: DW056

Todd

My impact driver was working fine and now when I press the lever to turn it on, it does nothing? The battery is fine. If I manually help spin the adapter, it starts to move but with no power? I thought maybe it might need new brushes, but I don't see any listed in the parts list? Could it be the motor or something? HELP anyone!
Mike
Reply: DW056

Mine did the same thing. The motor ran and the bit would turn with a little help getting it turning. There was a broken armature wire in the motor.

I'm rebuilding several for my boss. I've found that what you saying is what I found to be a bad trigger. They are easy to replace. Hope this helps.
Greg
Reply: DW056

I was working on one of mine and I hooked the battery, pulled the trigger and it ran slowly. I pushed on one of the brushes and the motor took of, full speed. See if this works; if it does it means the brushes are worn out.

Is there a special grease for lubing the planetary gear assembly? There was a lot of grease in the metal housing behind the chuck, is this supposed to be there or is it from the gear lube?

How to remove stub?

Using my DeWalt 1/4" Impact Driver, the impact driver adapter was shorn off at the face of the chuck. Tried to drill it out, but of course, it is hardened steel. Tried to remove the nose and push it out from behind - oy!, that's a lot of bearing grease on the planetary gears. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hey caymanp2,
You will need to replace the entire anvil piece..#10 part #605855-00 once you remove the retaining ring # 15..you should be able to push the piece out thru the nose..be sure and not lose any loose parts..:) parts avail at ereplacementparts.com
hope this helps?

I have had two DW056 for 5 years now. I have already replaced the trigger twice on both and now I am ordering the motor and pinion for both because the bushings are gone. They have fastened thousands of screws and bolts every week since I bough them. Well worth the money in my opinion.
When working with nuts, bolts, and screws it can be really, really annoying to turn all those fasteners by hand. I've used ratchets and screwdrivers for years but since I've discovered impact drivers everything is much easier. Faster too.

This Dewalt DW056 impact driver is a big 18 volt model which has strong torque and forceful impacting. For removing and installing lug nuts on a four wheeler this thing is excellent. It tightens the bolts very securely. I've never had a single problem with a lug nut installed with this impact driver. Driving regular wood screws is wonderful too. It just hammers away until the fastener is tight. In most cases, I need no more wrenches or ratchets.

It's not perfect however. As with any 18 volt Ni-Cd Dewalt tool it's very heavy and can be inconvenient when used for a long period of time. Also it's too powerful for some jobs, especially when installing a self-tapping screw into soft material like plastic. It's important to be careful. Also it's not a torque wrench, so make sure you don't overtighten fasteners that require a certain torque setting.

Despite some shortcomings this is a really great tool that makes most mechanical jobs a whole lot easier. Once you've got a complete set of attachments for your impact driver, you may not have to turn a bolt by hand again.

This is a very good tool over all. I've had one of these since they first came out and have had no trouble. Most comparable brand impact drivers don't have the torque these have. I've tested them side by side and these put in a 3 in. screw the best.
