Abstract:
Rapid improvements in earthmoving equipment require guidelines by which to judge service life of machines. This article investigates the factors of usage, environmental effects, and obsolescence in projecting replacement periods of units in three different categories. The economic advantages of replacement are discussed from the viewpoints of cost and production capacity, and suggestions are given for salvaging obsolescent but serviceable units.
