Darren, I can give a quick reply to this, but I'm no expert. From what I understand, the maintenance schedule isn't just machine hours, but more complicated than that. The system tracks use of individual components independently, too. The air conditioner filter is most likely based on machine hours, but something like a ball screw isn't. The ball screws, from what my memory serves, are clocked independently and only when used. Does this help?
