It uses grease to lube the gearbox. makita supply their own grease so you should be able to get a small tube from your local dealer. You don't have to use Makita grease though, just general grease should be fine. Not too thick and heavy, or too oily and light. I know that sounds a bit vague. Do you have other machines that you have grease for? SDS hammer drills, saws, any small power tool like that will use a similar type of grease.

    Makita 6228d has no torque, is the gear box repairable or only can be replaced?


    The gearbox (PN 125087-2) is only sold as a unit, no individual parts are available for it. Torque on a drill is usually a function of the power in the battery and the motor's ability to use it. Unless the gearbox is binding enough to make it or the motor very hot when in use your problem may lie in a 'tired' battery or motor issues like brushes.

    How to dismantle a makita HP electrical hammer drill, want to replace the brushes


    Check out the split drawing on this page.
    If your makita does not have any outside accessible brush caps, you need to dismantle it.
    lay it on the side, where the side with the screws securing the to halves together is facing up.
    Remove all screws (some may be hidden under labels etc.) Gently pry the halves apart, locate the brushes disconnect their leads if any, and remove. Install new brushes and make sure the move freely, and that they are springloaded when in place. Gently rotate the rotor to ensure everything is ok . Reassemble and test drill. If the brushes leaves long streaks of noticeably large sparks, something has gone wrong or the rotor was damaged in the first place, causing excessive wear.

    Makita 8444d second and third gears sound noisy and do not engage


    I had the same problem on my 8444, it was out of warranty (just over 2 years old) so I stripped it and found the plastic gear selector ring worn out. Was livid at this as these drills are marketed on the strength of the "all metal" MXT gearbox! Makita UK, to their credit, sent me a replacement gearbox free of charge when I pointed this out to them.

    A year on and the replacement gearbox has now started doing the same in 3rd (high) gear. Doubt I can get another free 'box out of Makita (they would probably say I fitted it incorrectly) so am looking at buying just the drill body, which comes out at around £60 and will work with my existing batteries. Just not sure if I would trust the replacement not to fail, but a similarly powerful drill with 2 batteries would cost me wel over £200.

    unless you find a repair shop that has a used gearbox that has a shifting collar they would sell, you will need to replace the whole component. they do not sell individual parts for this.
