No need to work on it, it's deemed "Beyond Economical Repair" And if techs aren't being given PPE when they're working on incoming customer machines, they should be. I used to take machines out on the loading dock and take the air hose to them, but that was just one or two, and it was a lot of years ago. For someone who must "work on multiple machines like this a day" they should have PPE available. The points you raise are exactly why.
