Introduction, Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) Procedures
CK set up
Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) are performed to keep the CK and its
associated equipment in good operating condition. The checks are used to find, correct, or
report problems. Operators and Unit maintenance personnel are to perform the PMCS tasks as
shown in the PMCS tables. PMCS are done every day the CK is operated, using the
appropriate PMCS table.
Perform all checks and services keeping in mind the following guidelines:
Before you begin using the CK, do Before Operation PMCS
While the CK is in use, do During Operation PMCS
After using the CK, do After Operation PMCS
If you find something wrong when performing PMCS, fix it using troubleshooting and/or
maintenance procedures. Pay attention to WARNING and CAUTION statements. A WARNING
means someone could be hurt. A CAUTION means equipment could be damaged.
The right-hand column of the PMCS table lists conditions that make the CK 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 any tools required to perform PMCS are not listed in the procedures, notify your supervisor.
