Chapter 2, Lesson 2 - Operating Costs
This relates mostly back to the contract. However there are some other costs that, in particular, the owner must consider - but it is important for the operator to know and understand these too. ... AND, it behooves the Contract Manager (person overseeing the contract) to also be aware of and to understand all these various other costs.
This phrase is well understood by the equipment owner but often not so well understood by all the other personnel involved with a particular piece of heavy equipment - except maybe the operator.
If a piece of heavy equipment is "broken" it cannot work and thus, is NOT generating an income for the owner.
AND - in the case of fires, floods, (incidents) etc. - the "broken" equipment cannot perform the tasks planned for it and that situation may lead to a "chain reaction" of negative events on the fireline. (incident)
...if a firefighter breaks a pulaski handle a replacement pulaski or handle is usually quite easy to obtain...
...if something breaks on a piece of heavy equipment, it may take hours or days to just obtain the needed parts AND then it may take several more hours to make the repairs and get the machine operating again.
It may be easier to find and replace an operator than it is to obtain new parts and fix the machine.
