Mishandling ground handling wheels.

If you don't take care of your car's wheels, it's a sure bet you won't be rolling any-where.

Crews, the same is true for your Kiowa Warrior ground handling wheels. If you abuse, neglect or continually use them without doing PMCS, they won't roll when you need 'em.

Don't ignore your PMCS or maintenance. For instance, check oil reservoirs for proper oil level and lube as required. Do the Before and Monthly PMCS like it says in TM 1-1730- 232-13&P and the wheels will perform like a champ every time you need them to move your bird.

Ground handling wheels are bulky and heavy. Some folks tie a rope mound the wheels and drag them across the cement hangar floor. That can wear down the metal at the base where the quick-release pin is inserted. Too much wear and abuse makes the wheels NMC and fit only for the scrap heap.

'Course, it's a back-break-ing effort to roll around the wheels for long distances with your back bent over. So use an old broom stick handle and lift up the cradle assem-bly and roll the wheels where you need them.
