I have the 5262-21 corded 1" SDS Plus Rotary Hammer that I bought about 15 months ago. I have never used it because the project I bought it for got put on hold so I could focus on other more important things around the house first. Fast forward 15 months, I open the case up to grab the serial number for inventory purposes, and find oil/grease on the tool exterior and in the case. Wiped it up with a paper towel got the serial number, finished inventory, and now I’m trying to figure out the next step. The majority of my tools are cordless and I’ve never had this happen before so I’m hoping I can get some answers to what are probably stupid simple questions. I would Google them but I always end up with contradicting information. 1. Why would it leak oil? Like I said it’s never been used, it’s stayed flat in the case for 99.999% of the time I’ve owned it, and it stays in the house with most of my smaller tools. 2. What should I do to resolve the leaking? 3. If I should re-oil or grease anything what specific kind of oil/grease do I need. It does have about 4 years left on its warranty so if it would be better to ship it off for Milwaukee to handle that’s fine too. I do prefer to figure out a solution that doesn’t require sending/taking it to a service center because the closest one is 90 minutes away and shipping can be a pain in the ass.
