There is a sight glass on the side for you to see the oil level. Make sure they are always checked. You can buy the oil at any service center. Hilti makes oil too and can probably be purchased at Home Depots. Also the Home Depots that have tool rental programs would most likely sell the Hitachi oil too.

For most climates a good oil to use is air compressor oil (mineral). Sold at Lowes and many other stores. It has great lubrication properties and can take good amount of heat. In very cold climates where oil could thicken, store hammer indoors to keep warm until ready to use. Good luck

Hitachi sells a pneumatic oil for use in its air power tools. Your local Hitachi dealer, or any pneumatic dealer will sell the oil. The brand is not as important as using a few drops directly into the air fitting when starting a day of work. If used heavily, oil it again mid way through the working day.

3 to 4 ounces for first fill. You actually unscrew the oil gauge with the little wrench that should have come with the tool and add the oil there. After putting the cap back on, hold the tool upright to check the oil level. Check daily and add oil when the level drops to 1/4 when checking as described above.

kango 950 was the hammer drill version. Usually when they stopped hammering they were due for a rebuild. These units have a aluminum piston that rides in a steel tube striker. When the 2 rubber piston rings wear out you will get the described problem. The Kango's use a special tan grease so you cannot just yank it apart and replace the 2 rings with o-rings and grease. I had to rebuild 15 900 and 950's because the previous mechanic used the wrong grease. https://project21designs.com/kango-950-parts
The link sells grease & rings.

Buy a new switch the old switch was modificated by an maintenance kit if you have an old blue or red real Kango from England. or black Atlas Copco .
But if you have the red Milwaukee Kango then there is only a new switch to replace.

  1. The total condition of the seal anvil piston and striker are very important for the total condition of impact when spending a service kit (maintenance) when there is leakage at the front part everything will be hot inside and the rings will harden again quickly.
