Even very reliable Makita rotary hammers break down over time. Any breakdown is eliminated, you only need to have straight arms and perseverance.
In addition to electrical malfunctions, rotary hammers are also subject to mechanical breakdowns.
The work of rock drills with solid materials in a dusty environment shortens the life of the machine and requires user intervention to perform preventive maintenance.
Repair of the mechanical part of the Makita 2450 and 2470 puncher
Any repair of the tool begins with the determination of the nature of the malfunction and disassembly.
A Makita 2450 and 2470 rotary hammer can be repaired by a user with basic locksmithing skills and knowledge of electrical safety requirements.
This article discusses the mechanical part of the Makita puncher, the main malfunctions and how to solve them. Disassembly of the mechanical part of the Makita 2470 puncher
To get to the mechanical part of the punch, you need to remove or disassemble the cartridge.
Disassembling the quick-detachable chuck Install the hammer drill on the back of the cabinet on the surface of a table covered with a clean cloth or paper. Using tweezers or a screwdriver, remove the rubber tip 35, item 1.
Carefully loosen the annular spring, pos. 2, the clutch cover, pos. 3, the steel ring, pos. 4. You will reach a steel ball with a diameter of 7 mm, pos.20.
Now you can remove the case of the mechanical part. It is black. Using a screwdriver, unscrew the four screws at the end of the case.
Holding the black case with your right hand, press the end of the shaft from which the cartridge was disassembled with your thumb. The plastic case is easy to remove.
Next, remove the gearbox shaft.
To disconnect the mechanical part from the electrical part, you must first remove the electric brushes. In the lower part of the body, the rotor is held by electric brushes, which must be removed.
After checking that the electric brushes are disconnected from the lamellas of the rotor, use a screwdriver to pry the metal case of the perforator at the border of the green plastic case.
Now we proceed to disconnect the rotor from the mechanical part of the punch. The rotor is held in the mechanical part due to helical gears of the gearbox. If you take the rotor case in one hand, and the mechanical part in the other case and pull it in different directions, swinging, you will separate these two nodes.
You get such a knot in the old grease. Next, unscrew the two M4 × 12 bolts, pos. 43, using the hexagon, item 2666273-7 with the internal hexagon head. Pull out the shaft with the intermediate spur gear 10 pos. 80, art.226399-7.
from the inner case pos. 49, art. 153687-8. Clean parts from old grease.
You get such a mountain of clean details. Now carefully review the details, immediately discard the rubber rings, picking up new ones.
Replace defective parts with new ones.

Common mechanical problems with Makita rotary hammers include:
- destruction of the quick-release cartridge;
- bearing failure;
- breakdown of the shock mechanism;
- punch barrel wear;
- wear of rubber strikers and striker;
- gear breakage.
Repair of the perforator cartridge is done to replace the anther and rubber ring, as well as the conical spring and the steel ball, which provides clamping of the working tool (drill). What does the working tool indicate? namely, the drill is poorly held in the cartridge.
The main reason is the wear of a steel ball 7.0 pos.20, art. 216022-2. Ball wear occurs from contamination of the barrel of the cartridge due to ingress of dust and dirt.
The general view and arrangement of the Makita rotary hammer cartridge is shown in the photo below.
Do-it-yourself makita 2450 rotary hammer cartridge repair is easy to do. The cartridge must be disassembled, freed from old grease, discard rubber parts, replace defective ones.
complex failures require knowledge of the mechanical design of the Makita 2450 rotary hammer.
Having determined the nature of the malfunction of the Makita rotary hammer, proceed to disassemble the mechanical part called the gearbox.
Disassemble the mechanical part according to the attached video. Release it from the old grease. Carefully inspect all parts, their integrity, level of wear. All rubber products during any disassembly require replacement.

Repair of parts of a shaft of the Makita 2450 puncher
Remember! In the lower part of the body, the rotor is held by electric brushes, which must be removed.
At the next stage, the rotor must be disconnected from the removed mechanism. The rotor is disconnected from the mechanism simply by pulling out, because it is held by the friction of two helical gears.
It turned out such a dirty knot.
Now you need to separate the shaft of the percussion mechanism.
Most often, rubber rings, striker poses wear out. 24, compressor spring pos. 18. and cylinder parts. Here’s how barrel parts wear out and collapse during improper use of the tool.
Consider the most difficult malfunction. failure of the shock mechanism. The characteristic signs of failure of the impact mechanism is the absence of impact and the unpleasant noise of a working punch in the “Impact” mode.
Such a malfunction is typical for those perforators that during operation were pressed strongly against the work surface.
Having disassembled the gearbox, we remove debris and pieces of foreign objects. We find the defective part and clean everything from the old grease.
Very often the striker pos. 24 is destroyed, art. 324396-8, which is part of the trunk. metal ring pos. 27. art. 324216-6.
Discard damaged parts, replace with new ones, cover with a thin layer of grease. Parts are ready for assembly. But more on that in the next article.

DIY punch repair. When it is possible and necessary to repair a hammer drill
The hammer drill always works in extreme conditions. It is not surprising that over time it goes down, both consumer goods models and well-known brands. If the punch is expensive, then you can’t just throw it and run to buy another one in return, and you don’t need to. It’s better to try to repair the punch yourself, and our article will help you with this.
To be or not to be repaired
When you are faced with a choice and decide what to do with a hammer drill that doesn’t want to work at all, think: can you repair it yourself? It is worth undertaking repairs if:
- You already have experience in repairing some mechanisms;
- if your hammer drill is not one of the cheapest models. In this case, not only do not start repairs yourself, but also the masters should not be contacted. As the saying goes: "The sheepskin is not worth the mint";
- if you know the nuances of the device of the puncher that you are going to repair, because they are very different from each other, each has its own technological features.
It is most effective to consider a concrete example, which we will do.
Repair of the Makita puncher
This rotary hammer is known for its reliability, but still someday there is a limit to its endurance.
We disassemble our tool and start with a cartridge
To find out the cause of the breakdown, you need to parse the mechanism:
- Remove the lever through which the switch. Special care is required here, otherwise the repair may result in further damage to the parts.
- If you have a Makita model 2450, then the cartridge is not removed here, so you have to disassemble it:
- we take a screwdriver flat and remove the rubber gasket. a barrier to dust from entering the perforator. Perhaps you have changed this detail more than once;
- the snap ring is next;
- now further disassembly is prevented by the cover. We remove it and see that in the barrel of the cartridge there is a fixing unit consisting of a ring holding the ball, a guide for the ball, a conical spring. We disassemble everything in order, starting with a metal ring.
What surprises can await you after disassembling the cartridge? Typical problems are:
- the rubber gasket has worn out and does not prevent dust from entering the punch anymore. Repair will consist in cleaning the parts from dust and replacing the boot. Dirt will also penetrate if the lid on the cartridge is deformed. This does not particularly affect the work, but the details will wear out faster;
- the retaining ring has relaxed or is completely worn out. We change it;
- the ball has worn out. The solution is simple. a replacement, but with the condition that the diameter is not even a micron less, otherwise the cartridge will fail again and already completely. Do not forget to honestly lubricate this element and fix it in the hole of the guide washer;
- possible wear of the guide ball itself, i.e. washers at the points where they are in contact. In case of critical wear, we make a replacement;
- a conical spring is the most resistant part, but with prolonged use it can also deform. If this happens, we carry out the replacement by deploying its smaller vertex to the gearbox;
- Now you can assemble the cartridge, but do the assembly in the reverse order and finally grease the end of the drill.
We disassemble the switch that controls the choice of operating modes
To perform this operation, a slotted screwdriver 2 mm, having a T-shaped working part:
- the main task is to pull the latch out of the handle. After inserting a screwdriver into one of the grooves on the side of the handle, carefully hook first at one wing of the latch, and then at the other and pull it out of the handle. In this case, the spring can be wrung out, and the latch pops out of the handle. We hold it to prevent this from happening;
- Now you need to take the handle to the left until the protrusions on it and the recesses on the gear housing coincide. The switch is released and we dismantle it;
- the clamp, together with the spring we take out;
- remove the rubber seal located on the handle of the switch;
- we clean all the details and their location.
- The first thing that most likely caused the hammer to fail was the developed switch fingers, because during operation they constantly come into contact with rotating parts. In this case, the switch must be changed, but if the work cannot be interrupted to search for a new switch, then simply rotate the worn element 180 degrees. This measure is temporary and full replacement anyway can not be avoided.
- Disused seats. We change the switch.
- The round rubber gasket is deformed and grease flows out of the gearbox. The solution is obvious. we make a replacement.
- The process of the retainer broke, holding it in the gear case, which contributes to spontaneous switching of modes. You can not change the latch, if this problem does not bother you, the punch will still work.
- Failure of both wings of the retainer, which leads to popping up the switch from its seat in the housing. We change the lock and work on.
- The handle of the switch is equipped with two metal fingers. They must be lubricated, and at the same time the ring, before putting it in place.
- Next in the pen we put:
- a spring;
3. We put a switch in the gearbox, but only partially, otherwise we will not be able to perform the following operation
4. The switch will have to be turned against the clockwork, so that it becomes as it was when we dismantled it. Now he will fully fall into place. If you feel that something is wrong, it means that you have excessively deepened the latch.
5. It remains to scroll the switch clockwise until it occupies the drilling mode, press the latch, make sure that the switch moves as it should to the selected position, and the punch repair in this part is completed. Next we deal with the gearbox.
We repair a reducer
If there is no suspicion that the engine has burned out, then the task is simplified by the fact that we will not dismantle the entire gearbox:
- from the barrel located in the perpendicular position, we extend the housing together with the needle bearing. A malfunction may occur in the fact that the bearing did not come out, and this indicates the development of a seat in the housing. Then the case is better to replace;
- replacement of the part is also necessary when the landing of the intermediate shaft bearing is weakened;
- if you notice that there is an oil leak, then sometimes, although rarely, you have to change the seal, the place of which is the neck of the case. often the reason is not the oil seal itself, but an excess of lubricant;
- if you have a real Makita, and not its fake. the switch seat is extremely rare, and if you slipped a fake, you will have to change the case often for this reason.
The reason was found and eliminated, now we collect, while:
- lubricate parts, but sparingly;
- remove metal particles from the housing;
- make sure everything is folded correctly;
- set the case in place.
Here the wizard parses the Makita punch in 5 minutes:
Bosch rotary hammer repair
Bosch belongs to punchers with a long service life, but sometimes even the most famous brands have to be repaired.
So, what kind of malfunctions can this puncher have:
- so as not to disassemble the tool in vain, first ring the cord, its damage may cause a stop;
- If the cord is OK, check the anchor and stator. To do this, unscrew the cover from the back and first just inspect, and then test;
- disassembling the upper assembly, perform the work in the following sequence: rubber tip, lock washer, head, spring, ball;
- dismantle the case and switch;
- Bosch Achilles Heel. compressor ring and hammer, pushing drill. Most often, you yourself are to blame when you think that the harder you push, the better the tool will work. And just the opposite. You press harder and decrease the striker stroke, more frequent strikes and, as a result, the striker becomes unusable;
- if you do not lubricate the shank of the drill periodically, then the sealing rings and hammer strikes will fail more often.
The technology, in general, differs little from that used in the repair of other brands of perforators.
