SPECIFIC LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS - Continued
Refer to TM 4-33.31 for lubrication instructions in cold weather.
This Lubrication Chart is for operator/crew (C) and Field Maintenance (F). Lubrication intervals (on-condition or
hard time) are based on normal operation. Lubricate more during constant use and less during inactive periods.
Use correct grade of lubricant for seasonal temperature expected.
For equipment under manufacturer's warranty, hard-time oil service intervals shall be followed. Intervals shall be
shortened 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, etc.).
Degreasing solvent MIL-PRF-680 Type III is an environmentally compliant and low-toxicity
material. However, it may be irritating to the eyes and skin. The use of protective gloves
and goggles is required. Use in a well-ventilated area. Keep away from open flame and
other sources of ignition. When not using MIL-PRF-680 solvents, ensure MIL-PRF-680
solvent container is sealed. Store, handle, and dispose of unused and spent solvents in
accordance with local procedures and plans. Failure to comply may result in personnel
Clean area around lubrication points with degreasing solvent or equivalent before lubricating equipment. After
lubrication, wipe off excess lubricant to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
