These instructions are mandatory for lubrication of the semitrailers.
The Semitrailer must receive lubrication with approved lubricants at recommended intervals in order to be
mission-ready at all times.
The Lubrication Chart (Figure 1) shows lubrication points, items to be lubricated, the required lubricants, and
recommended intervals for lubrication. Any special lubrication instructions required for specific components
are contained in the NOTES section of the chart.
The KEY provides information needed to select the proper lubricant for various temperature ranges and
uses, and identifies the capacities and intervals.
Recommended intervals are based on normal conditions of operation, temperature, and humidity. When
operating under extreme conditions, lubricants should always be changed more frequently. When in doubt,
notify your Supervisor.
SPECIFIC LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS
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.
Maintain a record of lubrication performed and report any problems noted during lubrication. For
maintenance forms and procedures to record and report any findings, refer to DA PAM 750-8.
Keep all external parts of equipment not requiring lubrication free of lubricants. After lubrication, wipe off
excess lubricant to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
For lubrication instructions in cold weather, refer to FM 9-207.
LUBRICATION CHART AND DIAGRAMS
The 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.
