The Right Grease For Power Tools Makes All The Difference

Tool Grease is Tool Grease Until You Use the Wrong One

ToOld tool grease on a power tool.ol grease may not be something on the top of our list when it comes to our priorities. For someone who’s handy with tools around the jobsite or even at home, greasing the mechanical systems of a power tool that’s getting stiff seems like an easy task.  Just open the casing and apply the lube, right?  But if power tools are an important part of your livelihood, it might be wise to have a professional do the maintenance.

Get the Right Tool Grease the First Time

In a Bosch Bulldog™ rotary hammer, not using the right grease for a tool can hurt the function of the hammer by reducing the effectiveness of the impact mechanism and by gumming the moving components that cause excessive wear. It’s important to know the viscosity and the heat capacity of the tool grease being used. Dissipation of the tool grease if too thin can cause heat build-up and reduce the lifetime of the moving components. And the same holds true for tool maintenance of demolition hammers, combination hammers or breaker hammers.

The Maintenance Advantages

The right tool grease for the right tool produces superior power tool performance.The viscosity of the lubricant is critical to tool life. It ensures proper lubrication and function of the seals and o-rings over the life of the tool. Various lubricants have different additives, so they should not be mixed. And mixing different lubricants together during tool maintenance  can cause a chemical reaction that may damage the tool or reduce lube effectiveness.

By sending your product to a Bosch service center, you ensure the use of Bosch-quality parts and lubricants. Proper and scheduled maintenance as well as the use of the right grease for a tool ensures years of trouble-free service by preventing early wear of moving components.

    Great little write up on tool maintenance. I have been known to maintain a tool or two but nothing that operates like a Bulldog.

    The correct lube for Bosch tools can be purchased at your local Bosch service center. Or call (877)267-2499. Make sure to have the 10 digit # printed on the tool’s data plate to ensure you get the right lube for that specific tool.
