Question about Milwaukee Tool Milwaukee 544621 Sdsmax Demolition Hammer

Open Question

Milwaukee Demolition Hammer #5332. I get only intermittent contact between the striker and the bit. It is annoying to say the least. Seems like lifting the hammer and reseting the bit sometimes will engage the bit. I have cleaned and lubed as required in the manual.\r\n Thoughts?

SOURCE: my milwaukee 5316 rotary hammer drill wont

Could be a couple things, do you have the selector in the rotation mode, also there is an internal clutch that might have broken or the splines on the spindle might be rounded. If it is the clutch you would have to take it in for repair, it is extremely tricky to work on. Take the bit out (make sure you are using the right bits for this tool) and look at the splines to check their condition. Let me know if I can help more

SOURCE: milwaukee 5338 breaker hammer stopped

my first question is what did the old brushes look like, was the spring burnt, were the contact faces on the brushes not the same. I would make sure that the brushes move freely in the tubes allowing contact with the armature, to ensure this use your volt ohms meter and place one in at a time and check by inserting your probe on the commutator thru the opposite brush tube and the top of the installed brush. I assume you have one if you indicate the cord/switch are OK. If they were not burnt then the next thing I would look for is a loose connection or broken wire from the vibration of this tool. You can get a breakdown and wiring schematic by going to I strongly recommend doing this before further disassembly. Let me know

If you mean the cord you can find the part number by going to and you will need the serial number for the correct one. Or you can also go to You will need to solder the wire ends to push into the swiitch. To release the old cord straighten one leg of a paper clip and insert next to the wire and gently pull out the old cord. UNPLUG tool first and make note of where the wires came from. The Milwaukee site also has a wiring diagram that you can download. Let me know if you need more assistance.

Bosch demolition hammer wont hammer

MUCH NEWER BOSCH demolitionhammers have a special consumables kit you MUST use anyway its marketing technical made exactly on the calculated operating hours.

Every tools has his own kit and by the heavier models of powertools a very special lubricating oil instead of grease that was used by the older tools that are working with a slower tapping block instead of a very fast battle piece.

It won't rotate. It only hammers.

The 11316 Demolition Hammer is made to hammer only, it does not rotate the bit. It is for demolition with pointed bits or flat and scraping chisels. If you want to drill holes in cement you need a rotary hammer drill.

Milwaukee now owns Kango, unfortunately I believe the 950sv is the old style. Parts are no longer avail. I have about 20 of the breakers. It is really too bad, they were great machines.
