When you do your PMCS, you will always need a rag or two. Following are checks that are
common to the entire Bucket-ProTM System.
Degreasing Solvent (MIL-PRF-680, Type II) is toxic and flammable. Keep away from
heat or flame. Never smoke when using solvent. The flashpoint for Type II Degreasing
Solvent is 141 F (61 C). Wear protective goggles, face shield, and gloves; use only in a
well-ventilated area; avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothes; and do not breathe
vapors. Failure to comply may result in injury or death to personnel.
If personnel become dizzy while using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air and
medical help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If solvent contacts
eyes, immediately flush eyes with water and get immediate medical attention. Do not
use diesel fuel, gasoline, or benzene (benzol) for cleaning.
Adhesives, solvents, and sealing compounds burn easily and give off vapors that are
harmful to the skin and clothing. To avoid injury or death, keep away from open fire
when using these materials, and use only in well-ventilated areas. If adhesives, solvents,
or sealing compounds contact the skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and
water, and rinse thoroughly. Failure to comply may result in injury or death to personnel.
Keep It Clean. Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious
problem. Clean as you work. Use Degreasing Solvent (MIL-PRF-680, Type II) on all metal surfaces.
Use soap and water when you clean rubber or plastic material.
Rust and Corrosion. Check Bucket-ProTM System for rust and corrosion. When any bare metal or
corrosion exits, clean surface and apply a coat of paint. Report bare metal or corrosion to your
Bolts, Nuts, and Screws. Check all bolts, nuts, and screws for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or
broken condition. You can't check them all with a tool, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or
rust around bolt heads. When you find a bolt, nut, or screw you think is loose, tighten it or report it
to your supervisor.
Welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. When you
find a bad weld, report it to your supervisor.
Electric Wires and Connectors. Look for cracked, frayed, or broken insulation, bare wires, and
loose or broken connectors. Tighten loose connectors. Report any damaged wires to your supervisor.
When you check operating conditions, check to see if component is serviceable.
