2-6. GENERAL LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Do not start or move Roller while anyone is under Roller. Severe injury or death could result.
These instructions are mandatory.
a. 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. On-condition (OC) oil sample intervals shall be applied unless changed by the Army Oil Analysis
Program (AOAP) laboratory. Change the hard-time interval when lubricants are contaminated or when
operating the equipment under adverse operating conditions, including longer-than-usual operating hours. The
calendar interval will be extended during periods of low activity. When extended, adequate preservation
precautions must be taken. Hard-time intervals will be applied in the event AOAP laboratory support is not
available. Hard-time intervals must be applied during the warranty period. 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 Roller operation.
The lubrication is to be performed at whichever interval occurs first for the Roller. Special lubrication intervals
and services are shown by the use of an asterisk (*) symbol.
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 type III drycleaning
solvent is 200°F (93°C). Failure to do so can 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 medical attention. DO NOT use diesel fuel, gasoline, or benzene (benzol)
b. Clean Fitting Before Lubricating. Clean parts with drycleaning solvent or equivalent. Dry before
c. Lubrication After Fording. When fording occurs, lubricate all grease fittings outside and underneath
d. Lubrication After High-Pressure Washing. After high-pressure washing, lubricate all grease fittings
outside and underneath the Roller.
