If it is air driven, it requires 'air tool oil' applied to the air connection of the tool. The rotary mechanism in small drill types requires heavy grease lubrication applied occasionally. Hope this helps!

How do i fix oil leak in seals of jackhammer

by a service kit that are made for your model

I do you a suggestion how you can do it yourself if you have a burner to heat up the bolts because of loctite sealant i think you know something of forces on that parts ? because of the tools that are neccesary to service it .
Here is a suggestion of a brand that is maybe there or coming in your Country . thats why i do this suggestion by a dutch link .

If you know the brand of your hammer ? sometimes bought secondhand and no modelname google it on 3 words powertools the brand service or choose pictures if you will see pictures where you can see your hammer but there are can be marketing technical differences by the models because a suggestion i made by Hitachi the H90 and H90SE are not compatible by service kit a part of spares can only be used.
The time you spend is meaningless if you only think its leaking oil. because there is a thin lubrication inside most jackhammers and if that's leaking ,the working hours are on it, for time wasted re prematurely burned grommets make high-priority work bolt seal the front of the machine at the stroke chisel the first rings oil seals as well as the size of the stroke bolt must be tight and smooth, as if only a little air leaks burned den all your new o-rings (ie be hard in the short term) by overheating, use lubricants, not just fat because of the high temperature internal structure and the thermal conductivity of the parts together.

Wh a t type of oil do I use on a H65 hittachi jackhammer

Is not enough this is a better suggestion for you because of wasting time for only oil (lubrication is not only very importand because of heating but if it was leaking theres more to do 323745 service kit comes complete with the most neccesary parts allways but priority in this is extra (in most cases) change the strokebolt(second hammer) allways by if that looks not smooth surface.

Jackhammer wont hammer

A complete service kit is neccesary its pointless only to change oil, including hardened o-rings and gaskets and oil seals etc. have had their working hours. it all rests on a marketing technical calculation where no user is slicing.
look for your model and a spare parts servicekit and if the neccesary tools are present you can do it on your own. the front second hammer (stroke bolt) must be air-tight the heavy battle piece must be pulled up by vacuum by the stroke cylinder and worn rings on it and everywhere and bad seals will not succeed

Check your main memory. If you could have loaded more number of programs there will be problem in accessing the memory. Automoatically the speed will come down. If you remove of those unwanted stuff from your phone including stored messages you will find better speed and accessibility.
