DD Form 1970, Motor Equipment Utilization Record is a form used to control the use of special purpose and material handling equipment as well as combat, tactical, and non-tactical vehicles. The form is also used for recording the operating time on equipment that requires services based on hours only. This includes generators, air compressors, centrifugal pumps, and so forth.
The latest version of the form - sometimes confused with DA Form 1970, House Staff Evaluation Report - was released by the Department of Defense (DoD) in November 1999. An up-to-date fillable DD Form 1970 is available for download and digital filing down below or can be found on the Executive Services Directorate website.
For regular dispatches, the DD 1970 will be used until all the spaces in the operator or action section are filled in. For extended dispatches, the form will be used until all the spaces in either the operator or destination sections have been completely filled.
