The cost of running any piece of equipment varies with time and the severity of the application.
This correlates directly with when the maintenance work needs to be carried out and can swing up and down significantly, depending upon where the machine is in its lifecycle.
We help you estimate the availability of the equipment over the life of the contract and ensure that this fits in with your mine planning needs.
We use detailed lists of maintenance tasks, their frequency and expected cost to work out for you what the dealer should be charging.
Using this methodology replicates the way most dealers will work the contract out and puts you in a very strong bargaining position as you have a clear understanding of the risk of the contract and the real costs of carrying out the work.
With access to data from major manufacturers and a database of comparative operating costs, we are in a position to provide you with impartial advice on equipment maintenance costs.
