Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) are performed to keep the MBU and its associated
equipment in good operating condition. The checks are used to find, correct, or report problems. Operator
personnel are to do the PMCS jobs as shown in the PMCS table. PMCS are done every day the MBU is
operated, using the PMCS table. Pay attention to WARNING and CAUTION statements. A WARNING means
someone could be hurt. A CAUTION means equipment could be damaged.
Before you begin using the MBU, do Before PMCS
During use of the MBU, do During PMCS
After using the MBU, do After PMCS
Once a week, do Weekly PMCS if the MBU has been in use
Do Monthly PMCS once a month if the MBU has been in use
If you find something wrong when performing PMCS, fix it using troubleshooting and/or maintenance procedures.
The right-hand column of the PMCS table lists conditions that make the MBU not fully mission capable. Write up
the faults that cannot be repaired on DA Form 2404 for unit maintenance. For further information on how to use
this form, see DA PAM 738-750.
If tools required to perform PMCS are not listed in procedures, notify your supervisor.
Look for signs of trouble. Senses help here. You can feel, smell, hear, or see many problems that can be
eliminated before they get worse. Inspect to see if items are in good condition. Are components correctly
installed and secured? Is any damage to the frame or components visible? Correct any faults or notify unit
