N OT E
Lubrication instructions contained in this PMCS are MANDATORY.
Overall views of lubrication points are located at the end of this work package. Localized views are
located, together with specific lubrication instructions, in the PMCS Table.
The loader is not enrolled in the Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP).
Refer to FM 9-207 for lubrication in arctic operation.
Included in this PMCS are lubrication services to be performed by the operator.
Lubrication intervals are based on normal operation. Lubricate more during constant use and less during inactive peri-
ods. Use correct grade of lubricant for seasonal temperature expected. Refer to the KEY.
For equipment under manufacturer's warranty, hardtime intervals shall be followed. Shorten intervals if lubricants are
known to be contaminated or if operation is under adverse conditions (e.g., longer than usual operating hours, extended
idling periods, extreme dust).
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 lubrication equipment clean and
ready for use.
WARN I N G
Solvent cleaning compound MIL-PRF-680 Type III is an environmentally compliant and low toxic mate-
rial. However, it may be irritating to the eyes and skin. Use protective gloves and goggles. Use in well-venti-
lated areas. Keep away from open flames and other sources of ignition. Failure to follow this warning may
cause injury or death to personnel.
Clean area around lubrication points with solvent cleaning compound (Item 2, WP 0031 00) or equivalent before lubri-
cating equipment. Keep all external parts of equipment not requiring lubrication free of lubricants. After lubrication,
wipe off excess lubricant to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
Maintain a record of lubrication performed and report any problems noted during lubrication. Refer to DA PAM 750-8
for forms and procedures to record and report any findings.
