Your welcome. That checklist your talking about (aka cheatsheet) is important and a great idea also. if they dont know what your looking for, or expecting, then its not their fault for not doing the maintenance...its the supervisors for not explaining what is expected from them, and having a way to "check it off" after completion.

Oh, and I didnt say it in my first response, but I go agree with the others in saying there should be a supervisor on each crew. That person is ultimately responsible for that "team" and how the equipment is maintained. I would assume that person would make slightly more then the rest of the crew because they have the added responsibilities of ensure the maintenance is accomplished.
