MAINTENANCE CONCEPT: Operators shall possess an MOS of 62F and maintenance will be performed by a 62B
MOS. This is a Non-Developmental Item (NDI) and as such, there is no maintenance engineering effort on the part of the
Army. However, consistent with maintenance policy and procedures of Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services
(PMCS) and Maintenance Allocation Charts (MAC), the level of repair assigned to maintenance and associated tasks
identified in the MAC should be reflective of training and repair part support for similar items of equipment in the inventory
for unit through depot maintenance. Maintenance will be performed by MOS 62B at the level authorized by the MAC and
TOE mission statements.
a. MAINTENANCE PLAN: Maintenance capabilities will be governed by the MAC and will be tailored to
accommodate the complexity of the maintenance requirement.
b. UNIT MAINTENANCE: Unit Maintenance is performed by a crew, the operator, or unit maintenance personnel as
shown in the MAC of the appropriate TM or commercial manual. Unit Maintenance normally includes inspection by sight
and touch of easily accessible components; lubrication, cleaning preserving, tightening, and isolation using BITE, go no-
go, or onboard instrumentation, if applicable; and the replacement of easily removed and installed components that do not
require other than common tools.
c. INTERMEDIATE DIRECT SUPPORT MAINTENANCE: Intermediate Direct Support Maintenance is performed by
installation shops and selected intermediate maintenance support units and activities in the Army force structure.
Intermediate Direct Support Maintenance will remove and replace major assemblies and components and provide contact
maintenance teams for local support of unit maintenance when required. Intermediate Direct Support Maintenance
personnel shall be capable of diagnosing causes of equipment failures, repairing specified components and repair parts so
they may be returned to the supply system in support of the bucket. This maintenance level shall maintain a supply support
system which allows unit maintenance to obtain repair parts through reparable exchange (RX) and requisitions.
d. Intermediate General Support Maintenance:
No maintenance tasks are required at General Support Level.
e. DEPOT MAINTENANCE: No depot maintenance programs are planned for the overhaul of these buckets.
