$85 (Profit per service)

Dividing that $85 profit by the amortization rate of $1,000, it comes out to 11.75, or about 12, services to pay for the cost of the device for that year.

This is a very good investment. Any large device that requires more than 30 services to pay for the debt service for one year should be eliminated from your list. In this scenario, the professional is projecting eight services per week, or 416 per year, which equates to $35,360. Calculating this during the course of five years, the investment will yield $176,800.

A small technology with a life of two years at a cost of $300 will amortize to $150 per year, which can be calculated into your analysis.
