You are evaluating two different milling machines to replace your current aging machine. Machine A costs $266735, has a three-year life, and has pretax operating costs of $64279 per year. Machine B costs $395418, has a five-year life, and has pretax operating costs of $32757 per year. For both milling machines, use straight-line depreciation to zero over the project’s life and assume a salvage value of $40798. Your tax rate is 34 % and your discount rate is 10 %.
