Apparently the problem has not been resolved as Thomas states. I bought this drill today, used it once in hammer mode, and it's stuck.

Thank you for your question. No, the XFD12Z 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Compact Brushless Cordless 1/2" Hammer Driver-Drill, Tool Only is not a replacement for the XPH12Z. The XFD12Z includes 1/2 in. driver drill, and the XPH12Z includes a 1/2" hammer driver drill.

Great Drill but doesn't work as good now
Purchased this drill in a drill/impact combo kit sold at home depot worked great for 3 years and, just recently I believe the gear box is going out. It will pop out of 2nd gear under heavy load (hole saw, paint mixer) and will grind until I shift it to first then back to 2nd and start again and it will only work for a little bit then back to shifting. It has a very strong motor and has a very good form fit to the hand and has phenomenal efficiency, a 4.0AH battery under moderate to heavy use can last me up to 45 minutes and sometimes an hour. I highly recommend this to those trying to build a power tool collection or those novice tradesmen that need a good solid reliable drill and already have a makita equipment lineup.
