Commonly, many companies do not have mobile service departments, or service locations near the purchaser's location. This is a primary concern to manufacturing, the equipment must be serviced by experienced technicians. Add this to your lis of questions.
A suggested list of replacement components to keep a production line operating is also a primary concern. Even if your firm does have experienced mechanics and technicians on board, without the parts, it just becomes the 10 cent part that stopped the locomotive. Salesmen are just that, the'll sell you a bill of goods and try to assure you that the equipment will last forever. Stock the parts, get the list.
I've worked in engineering and plant maintenance off and on as well for more than 30 years. I may have many other suggestions offline via my email if you have specific concerns.
