These numbers reinforce why I always buy a slightly used machine and take great care of it. It lowers my operating cost and makes me more money.
Notice I said "slightly used" that way the first owner pay the largest depreciation hit.
Again another article that says if you use your head and calculate simple math you can make money.
Another point: This is why I always tell new guys to rent tools first because it gets their pricing right when they do buy something because they have always had to factor those costs into the job. Guys who buy right away think that the rentals are a rip off and never think that multinational companies like sunbelt have their expenses in order to know what to charge. Imagine that!
