The expected useful life of the excavator is 10 years. At the end of its useful life, the excavator is expected to have a salvage value of $10,000. It is expected that the excavator will be used 1,500 hours per year. Using an interest rate of 7.5%, determine the hourly depreciation and interest cost for the excavator.

2) The annual taxes for an excavator are $2,150, the annual insurance is $2,780, and the monthly storage cost is $350. Determine the hourly taxes, insurance, and storage costs for the excavator if it is used 1,200 hours per year.

4) The tires for a front - end loader cost $8,900 for all four tires. The loader is used 1,600 hour per year and the estimated life of the tires is 4,000 hours. Using a repair multiplier of 15% and an interest rate of 7.5%, determine the hourly cost of the tires, including tire repair.

5) An excavator consumes 3.9 gallons of fuel per hour. Determine the hourly fuel cost for the excavator if fuel cost $3.75 per gallon.

6) For an off - road dump truck, it is estimated that under normal conditions its hourly lubricant consumptions are as follows: crankcase, 0.011 gal/hr; transmission, 0.007 gal/hr; final drives including differential, 0.006 gal/hr; and hydraulic controls, 0.008 gal/hr. A tube of grease is used during each 8 - hour day to lubricate the grease fittings. The local costs of lubricants are as follows: oil for the crankcase, $28.00/gal; transmission fluid, $19.00/gal; oil for the final drives, $31.00/gal; hydraulic fluid, $9.00/gal; and grease, $5.00/tube. The filters for the truck cost $0.50 per hour of operation including the labor to install.

• Crankcase, 0.008 gallons per hour

• Final drives, 0.001 gallons per hour

• Hydraulic controls, 0.021 gallons per hour

• One tube of grease is used during each 8 - hour day to lubricate the grease fittings.

The local costs of lubricants are as follows:

• Oil for the crankcase,$7.43 per gallon

• Oil for the final drives, $8.99 per gallon

• Hydraulic fluid, $3.56 per gallon

• Grease, $4.01 per tube

The filters for the excavator cost $0.25 per hour of operation, including the labor to install them. The estimated repair reserve is $4.20 per hour. Using 1,400 billable hours per year, determine the hourly ownership and operation cost of the excavator.
