Estimated end-of-year maintenance costs for the next 10 years areas follows:Year Maintenance Cost1 $ 4002600380041000510 1400/yearThe old forklift has no present or future netsalvage value, since its scrap metal value just equalsthe cost to haul it away.A replacementis now beingconsideredfor the old forklift. A modern unit can bepurchased for $6500. It has an economic life equalto its 10-year depreciable life. Straight-line depre-ciation will be employed,with zero salvage value atthe end of the 10-year depreciable life. At any time the new forklift can be sold for its book value.Main-tenance on the new forklift is estimated to be a con-stant $50 per year for the next 10 years, after whichmaintenanceis expected to increase sharply.ShouldAcme Manufacturing keep its old forklift truck forthe present, or replace it now with a new one?
