Section II. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
1-5. PMCS INTRODUCTION
PMCS means systematic caring for, inspecting, and servicing equipment to keep it in good condition and to prevent
breakdowns. To be sure the Roller is ready for operation at all times, Roller must be inspected systematically so that
defects may be discovered and corrected before they result in serious damage or failure. Use a DA Form 2404
(Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet), or DA Form 5988E, to record any deficiencies. DO NOT record
faults that you fix.
Any information in Paragraphs 1-1 through 1-13 overrides any conflicting information in paragraph 1-14.
1-6. PMCS PROCEDURES
PMCS, Table 1-1, lists inspections and care required to keep your Roller in good operating condition. This table
is set up so you can do intervals of PMCS while walking around the Roller.
The "INTERVAL" column of Table 1-1 tells you when to do a certain check or service.
The "PROCEDURE" column of Table 1-1 tells you how to do required checks and services. Carefully follow these
The "NOT FULLY MISSION CAPABLE IF:" column of Table 1-1 tells you when your Roller is non-mission capable
and why the Roller cannot be used.
When the Roller does not perform as required, refer to Troubleshooting.
When something looks wrong and you can't fix it, write it on your DA Form 2404, or DA Form 5988E.
IMMEDIATELY report it to your supervisor. When you do your PMCS, you will always need a rag or two. The following
checks are common to the entire Roller.
