I have the new type where you don't remove the chuck, but the weight of the auger bit is not on the drill, it's on the clam plate. The only way my bit can fall off is if the locking wingnut came out.I think the newer clam plates don't require you to remove the chuck from the drill. With the older clam you won't loose the auger bit but it's a pain in the ass swapping it back out to use your drill.
So I guess people who are having their setups come apart are not using a clam plate with the locking wingnut?
Da_Teacher which adapter are you using?
I think I'm going with a clam plate if I can ever find one available...out of stock everywhere.

Brush vs Brushless is not a big deal, torque is what matter. Typically the nicer cordless drills are brushless. Larger corded drills tend to have carbon brushes, even the nice ones. On carbon brush drills there is a little port with flathead next to the motor, if you open that port there will be a chunk of carbon with a spring. The carbon actually wear down after a while and will need to be replaced. The carbon absorbs the excess energy from the motor when you let go of the trigger. The brushless drills just have a technology that absorbs that excess energy without the need for the carbon brush. I have a miter saw that I've used to build a shed,3 chicken coops, fences and a lot of furniture. I have never replaced the brush, not to mention the brushes go for 75cents or something stupid cheap. All that being said i don't think any of the reputable brands sell battery operated tools with brushes so it might be a good idea to focus on brushless drills.I've heard a lot of guys saying thhe brushless drills are the way to go. What is the difference between a brushless vs other?
Regardless you cant get a brushed battery drill from Miluwakee, Dewalt, or Makita because that would be wrong and those companies know the difference between right and wrong.You will burn out a brushed drill. As stated torq is key. If you want to buy a drill every year buy one brushed. If you want to buy one that will last, buy a brushless hammer/drill. This is where you will get the torq and not burn it up. Milwaukee/Makita/ et al. will list torq specs. Dewalt uses something else. I use a Dewalt hammer/drill and shave through ice on BM without a hiccup. Do not use any drill on high speed or on hammer. I get roughly 20-25 holes in 12-15" of ice on (1) 5amph battery.
Now you could buy a cordless "hole hog" and never worry about burning anything up. Might tweek the auger if it gets hung up. Lol
Lol. I've never heard of a brushed cordless as being "wrong". I guess today I would refer to them as "vintage".Regardless you cant get a brushed battery drill from Miluwakee, Dewalt, or Makita because that would be wrong and those companies know the difference between right and wrong.
