FIELD MAINTENANCE PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS
AND SERVICES (PMCS) INTRODUCTION - CONTINUED
GENERAL LUBRICATION PROCEDURES - CONTINUED
When servicing this roller, performing maintenance or disposing of materials such as engine coolant,
hydraulic fluid, lubricants, battery acids or batteries, and CARC paint, consult your field/local hazard-
ous waste disposal center or safety office for local regulatory guidance. If further information is needed,
please contact The Army Environmental Hotline at 1-800-872-3845.
Ensure that all fluids drained as a result of lubrication or maintenance are collected in container and disposed of in
accordance with local policy and ordinances. Clean up any spills immediately.
Keep all lubricants in a closed container and store in a clean, dry place away from extreme heat. Keep container
covers clean and do not allow dust, dirt or other foreign material to mix with lubricants. Keep all lubrication equip-
ment clean and ready for use.
Maintain a good record of all lubrication performed and report any problem noted during lubrication. Refer to DA
Pam 738-750 for maintenance forms and procedures to record and report any findings.
Cleaning compound, solvent MIL-PRF-680 Type III is an environmentally compliant and low toxic
material. However, it may be irritating to the eyes and skin. The use of protective gloves and goggles is
suggested. Use in well-ventilated areas. Keep away from open flames and other sources of ignition.
Keep all external parts of equipment not requiring lubrication free of lubricants. Before lubrication, wipe lubrica-
lubrication, wipe off excess oil or grease to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
Refer to FM 9-207 for lubrication instructions in cold weather.
Refer to AR 70-12 for use of standardized fuels and lubricants.
Engine, transmission and hydraulic system oil filters shall be changed when:
a. they are known to be contaminated or clogged;
b. service is directed by Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP) laboratory analysis; or
c. at prescribed hardtime intervals.
Engine, transmission and hydraulic system oil must be sampled as prescribed by DA Pam 738-750. Thereafter, they
are sampled as AOAP results dictate.
For equipment under manufacturer's warranty, hardtime oil service intervals shall be followed. Intervals shall be
shortened if lubricants are known to be contaminated or if operation is under adverse conditions (i.e., longer-than-
usual operating hours, extended idling periods or dust).
GENERAL PMCS PROCEDURES
Always perform PMCS in the same order so it gets to be a habit. Once you've had some practice, you'll spot any-
thing wrong in a hurry. If any deficiency is discovered, perform the appropriate troubleshooting task in Chapter 2 of
this manual. If any component or system is not serviceable, or if the given service does not correct the deficiency,
notify your supervisor.
