Shipping Cost: $850 Actual cost varies by location
Total Purchase Cost: $12,710

Annual Operating Cost
(Based on 50 miles a day, 5 days a week, 35 weeks a year)

Payback

Based on the assumptions above, the payback period for the Pro model will be approximately 18 months and the Standard model will be approximately 14-15 months. However, more consistent use throughout the year would see a sooner payback period. As the Annual Employment Cost increases, the savings made from the productivity increase will continue to outpace the Annual Operating Cost of the Single Track Cat.
