Dryer upgrade

A smart customer of ours who is a keen operator recently upgraded his stacked dryers.  The dryers were only eight years old.  The benefits of upgraded equipment early like this are many:

  1. You are operating under warranty more.  If you replace at 8 years and 5 of those years were under warranty then you are only paying for parts for 3 years.
  2. Service costs rise as the equipment gets older.  You eliminate that cost by upgrading quicker.
  3. Newer equipment intimidates potential competitors.  Would you rather put in a laundromat next to a run-down laundromat or a laundromat with shiny, new equipment?
  4. Customers like the new equipment.
