US Army – Fort Hood | Facility Coordinator/Manager | Fort Hood & DOL Maintenance Fort Hood, Texas
Maintenance purchased one of these systems a few years ago and we have applied in lubing winch cables on wheeled and track vehicles.
We fabricated a cart to mount it too and it is staged it in front of the vehicle to where it can be Operating to clean & lube the cable.
It has drastically cut the man-hours in our cable cleaning & lubing process according to what the shops are telling me.
But we still have some old timers that still like cleaning by hand, their loss.
The Department of the Army really needs to add this to their inventory for motor pool repair it will cut down on cable maintenance and save an enormous amount of funds on cable replace due to deterioration.
I don’t know if any other facilities are using this system on vehicle winch cables, but it can be done, we have proven it over the past several years.
