1-12. GENERAL LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Do not start or move Roller when anyone is under Roller. Severe injury or death to
personnel could result.
These instructions are mandatory.
Intervals. Intervals (on-condition or hard time) and the related man-hour times are based on normal operation.
The man-hour time specified is the time needed to do all the services prescribed for a particular interval. Individual hard
time intervals shall be applied during the warranty period and in the event AOAP laboratory support is not available. On-
condition (OC) oil sample intervals shall be applied unless changed by the Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP) laboratory.
Change the hard time interval if lubricants are contaminated or if operating the equipment under adverse operating
conditions, including longer-than-usual operating hours. The calendar interval may be extended during periods of low
activity. If extended, adequate preservation precautions must be taken. Intervals shown in this lubrication section are
based on calendar and hourly times or calendar times and mileage. An example of a calendar and hourly lubrication is:
M/60 HR, in which M stands for monthly and 60 HR stands for 60 hours of vehicle operation. The lubrication is to be
performed at whichever interval occurs first for the Roller.
Determination of Operating Hours. The reading on the hourmeter is the basis of all lubrication intervals that are
based on hours of operation.
AOAP Sampling. Engine oil must be sampled at 50 hours of operation or 90 days, whichever occurs first, for
Active Army Units. Reserve and National Guard activities will use 50 hours or 180 days, whichever occurs first, as the
prescribed interval. Hydraulic oil will be sampled once a year. Sampling will be performed as prescribed by DA Pam 738-
Drycleaning Solvent (P-D-680, Type III) is TOXIC and flammable. Wear protective
goggles and gloves; use only in a well-ventilated area; avoid contact with skin,
eyes, and clothes; and, do not breathe vapors. Keep away from heat or flame.
Never smoke when using solvent; the flashpoint for drycleaning solvent type III
is 200° F (93° C). Failure to do so may result in injury or death to personnel.
If personnel become dizzy while using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air
and medical help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If
solvent contacts eyes, immediately flush eyes with water and get immediate
Warranty hard time Statement. For equipment under manufacturers' warranty, hard time oil service intervals
shall be followed for the duration of the warranty. Intervals shall be shortened when lubricants are known to be
contaminated or when operation is under adverse conditions (such as longer-than-usual operating hours, extended idling
periods, and extreme dust).
Clean Fittings Before Lubricating. Clean parts with drycleaning solvent (P-D-680, Type III) or equivalent. Dry
before lubricating. Dotted arrow points indicate lubrication on both sides of the Roller.
