I am starting a new LCO and was wondering if all of you experts would help me with finding a good Percentage of the equipment cost for repairs or maintenance.

Would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I think you are going to find your costs differ between new and used equipment. Also it will depend on how it is used. If it's cared for or beaten on.

Does anyone have any % they can offer?

IMHO depends on the brand and operator also, we run a little under 2%, that is revenue generated vs repairs and maintenance, this does not include vehicles which is over 6%, trilers are less than .5%

Is that revenue generated from that piece of equipment or is that general revenue?

I keep numbers in my accounting software by piece of equipment, just run a report, export to Excel and take an average.
