Inspect front bucket hose couplings for possible oil leaks.
Follow the PMCS and pre-equipment conditions per TM 5-3805-290-10 (Nov 07) and TM 5-3805-298-10 (Jan 12). Check for any oil leaks before and after the day’s run. A small leak can turn into a big leak. When that happens, construction operations come to a halt!
Ensure hose couplings click tightly to prevent leaks
A good way to prevent an oil leak is to grab the hose couplings and make sure they “click” in place for a tight fit.
