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 tine) and the related man-hour times are based on normal operation. The manhour
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 738-750.
· 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 medical attention.
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
