Rebuild or Replace?

A decision many owners, managers, mechanics and operators make daily.  Although there is no formula that fits every situation, there are a few things to consider in the decision making process:

  • Monetary Cost: Compare repair vs replacement cost
  • Turnaround Time: What is the quickest option to restore productivity?
  • Downtime Cost:  Calculate the hourly cost of lost productivity (Often underestimated but usually the largest factor)
