What factors do you consider when you would love to purchase a stone or rock crusher?  Before buying a jaw crusher or a cone crusher, what do you take into consideration in your pre-purchase evaluation?

In buying a jaw crusher I evalute the Communality - Make/Brand/Model, technical innovation and design, performance, structural integrity - Agents in host country - Back up service both sales and aftermarket and technical service back up and quality of people employed.

Crusher is a machine to produce valuable product. I agree with Robert in general but would like to put the same arguments in different order.

Service and minimum downtime - operation cost - performance - meeting requirements - reputation - robust construction - technical innovation, power consumption.

In some counties due to local rules it is impossible to get parts within reasonable time, so "agent" is a very bad word, it should be dealers with stock of spares.

Operating cost information or " Operating Cost Guarantee", if proprietary ware parts cost are not consistent with normal parts pricing you will find yourself in real cost compromise, you must consider every manageable proprietary ware part. We were shocked into this realization !! We are having to spend disproportionate amount of time and inconvenience researching for OEM suppliers, for the original manufacture, so we can source and price parts competitively . If not you are held "RANSOM"

First study the standards to meet, than create a process , than specify the crusher & calculate screensize. Forget the single crusher, the whole process must work.

What is the cost of ware parts per ton of aggregate? I am not argue with you, but I know a lot of speculations about parts cost from dealer compared to OEM parts price. But as you mentioned to get OEM prices you need to spend time and money to find them, deliver them and check them. From my experience the difference much less them expected. Besides that personal is doing what they should not do.

So real figures can be very interesting. May be not here.
