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.

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.

Clutch slipping on cordless drill. need spare parts to repair.


Are you sure you do not have a tourque adjustment problem. If not I do not believe Makita will want to send you parts,you would have to know what is precisely wrong and by the time you went back and forth you might as well find nearest dealer for repairs and google search Makita.com for service parts near you + zip code to get your drill fixed.
