Usually their request is: as long as the crushing capacity is maintained, the simpler the rest, the better, as simple as possible, to bring the price down.

Imagine the additional annual cost of labour incurred for regular oiling and assistance with maintenance, and the additional losses that result from downtime if these are not done properly, compared to automated machine operation.
