PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
To make sure that your vehicle is ready for operation at all times, inspect it systematically so you can discover any defects
and have them corrected before they result in serious damage or failure. The charts on the next few pages contain your
unit PMCS. The item numbers indicate the sequence of minimum inspection requirements. If you're operating the vehicle
and notice something wrong which could damage the equipment if you continue operation, stop operation immediately.
Record all deficiencies and shortcomings, along with the corrective action taken on a DA Form 2404. The Item Number
column is the source for the numbers used on the TM Number column on DA Form 2404.
