Hello everyone,
What type of oil do you normally use for demolition hammers? Today I was given an almost brand new one, but since I've never had one before, I don't really know what kind of oil to top it up with. One of the first things that came to mind was hydraulic oil. It's an electric demolition hammer, pretty much the same as the big 45J Titan ones that they sell at Screwfix. I read the manual but it doesn't say anything about the oil.

Any help's appreciated. Thank you in advance.

ya dont have to top em up. well... certainly the pro machines ya dont. i assume its sds+

i have both types sds+ and sds max. both just state that they require a dab of grease on the bit when you put it in the machine. but in reality that never ends up happening and the machines graft and graft

It's actually a hex shank, not sds+. There's an oil gauge on the belly of the machine, so that's why I asked. It's an affordable hammer, so I don't think it's a pro machine.

I keep an old film canister full of grease in my SDS box for just that purpose. :-)

If it has a oil glass on the side a drop of 30w oil will do other wise a bit of LM grease but don't over do it tho, As dust and grit sticks well to grease

its more than likely the Rockwell/titan/mc Allister breaker

eg. https://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-ttb280 ... 230v/67819

It's a different make (I had never heard of it before until last week), but other than that it's exactly the same machine. I will get some 30w. Thank you for your help.

yes there made in china and just branded for who ever wants them, they seem to be graded to, so the ones that don't make it for brand A ends up with brand C
