8816M BMPM: Pave the Way to PM


A little lube in the right place means smoother paving operations for your 8816M bituminous material paving machine (BMPM). And the conveyor grease fittings definitely qualify as the right place!

The bank of five conveyor grease fittings is located under the BMPM’s hopper wing in the middle of the track on the right side. These fittings are usually coated with dirt and sand, so make sure you wipe them off before starting the lube job.

Follow the -10 TM and make sure these fittings get greased daily. Each fitting will need four to five shots of GAA.

And if any of the fittings clog and won’t take grease, report it RIGHT AWAY.
