Expanding on this topic a bit-
Back in the mid 80's I worked in a school bus shop for a while. Fleet of around 50 units, all with juice boxes. Owner explained that school routes are part time jobs, 2-2 1/2 hours mornings & same afternoons. He figured finding drivers who could work these hours & knew how to use a clutch was almost impossible. Averaged having doing a clutch job once a week. First replacement cycle, (replaced 12-15 every year to keep the fleet new) he traded clutch rigs for Allisons. After switching to juice boxes, averaged one trans problem every two years.
Owner had another plan- second replacement cycle after he bought the company he replaced all the "Big Three" brands with another brand. Not to mention any names, but a brand that also made farm equipment. Next replacement cycle replaced the gas rigs with 9 liter diesel V8's. Initial cost was a few hundred bucks higher, but he figured having smaller parts stock, all the same filters, belts, brake shoes etc saved money.
