Grease for punch - a sincere concern for the instrument !

Why do I have to lubricate the punch?

Modern drills, depending on the class, can be used for drilling, drilling and chiseling, even in hard materials such as concrete.All of these modes, except for increased noise at work lead to the release of large amounts of dust, small stone chips, etc.

Such extreme conditions are often forced to clean and lubricate the device.Usually recommended for two types of grease: grease for gear punch and drill bits, drills and other interchangeable working tips.This gear is used for the lubrication of a liquid oil.

Most models in the manual for the specified time and frequency of oil changes.Accordingly, in case there are special drills hatches and openings for the pouring of oil, was hermetically sealed lids or screws.

grease Punch: how to choose?

As a rule, with the type of oil suitable for high-quality rotary hammers known manufacturers have no problems.The instructions indicate the recommendations, what kind of oil to pour into the punch, in what quantity.But what if no such data?It is possible to recommend the use of oil for diesel engines.

By the way, in some Chinese factory rotary hammers change the oil, in the opinion of experts, led to an increase in the impact of efficiency, reduction gear heating and even a reduction of noise at work.For some models of drills, both professional and amateur, it is an important and even operation.Features of their structure during extended use chiseling mode associated with excessive vibration, leading to cessation of supply of lubricant to the working mechanisms of the zone requiring lubrication.

Along with this tool more heated.To oil the gun again been reported in these areas must be periodically (every 20 minutes) to pass in the drilling mode, thus providing not only lubricate friction parts, but also their cooling.It is obvious that such regime change favorable impact on long-term performance punch.

How can grease the gun yourself?

Knowing what to lubricate the gearbox punch, however, it is important to do this at regular intervals.How often should I change the oil, than follow, and how to determine the maturity replacement?Experts recommend doing this with an eye on the instructions, but be guided by the practical side and especially the intensity of use of the tool, load value during the work, the terms of their holding (including dust).

Preventive replacement is recommended after changing the motor brushes.Although an experienced master of sound and increased rigidity of the tool is able to determine the need for oil changes.

Before you lubricate the punch, it is necessary to clarify whether the warranty period has expired.Because not all models have access to the gear unit in the form of a flap or opening.And in this case it may require disassembly of the housing.It is better to entrust the Service Centre.Moreover, if the tool is still under warranty.

Through self lubrication gear, you must first remove the old one.To do this, conducted flushing crankcase kerosene, diesel fuel or liquid lubricating oil ( "Veretenko").If you have to disassemble the body, the mechanism can be pre-purged to remove accumulated dust and dirt.Remember that the blowing and flushing mechanisms should be lubricated with all that was before the lubricant (eg, helical gear), but that it had not, in any case not be lubricated (for example, a transfer clutch).

approximate order of actions includes the preparation of lubricants.As the latter is recommended by the manufacturer's lubrication punch despite their higher cost.Perhaps, in the absence of firm, most versatile lubricant for drill punch - is known litol.

With regard shank drills and other interchangeable nozzles experts unanimously recommend covering them a small amount (no more than a pea) lubricants, for example, lithologic or grease.This should be done every time before installation into the chuck.

After removing the bit shank should be wiped clean from accumulating dust.Incidentally, the choice of lubricants, especially for the liner, should be done with caution to avoid oils that may cause adhesion due to nozzle jamming and heating impactor.
