Stuff breaks down and used there is the gamble that maintenance was never performed.
Not directed at anyone, just making a statement.

Your statement has hit the nail on the head. I started in 1982 and equipment has changed and improved. What I have noticed is the price has not changed for the improvement in time. Too many buy the equipment and pass the saving to the customer and don't keep it.
