Case Approves Use of B20 Biodiesel Blends

for Construction Equipment

TOMAHAWK, Wis. (June 11, 2008) – Case Construction Equipment announced it has approved the use of B20 blends (20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel) for more than 85 percent of its construction equipment. In June 2006, Case became the first construction equipment manufacturer to approve the use of B5 blends.

“Case is proudly leading the construction industry to help lower customers’ fuel costs and make a positive impact on the environment,” said Jim Hasler, vice president, Case Construction Equipment, North America. “Using biodiesel to power Case equipment reduces our dependence on foreign oil and increases our U.S.-based energy production. Plus, biodiesel has the potential to save customers money.”

Biodiesel, which is produced from vegetable oils or animal fat derived from renewable resources, is used in various processed mixes with standard petroleum diesel. This alternative fuel is credited with having the ability to lower exhaust emissions and help reduce dependence on imported oil.

“Biodiesel adds lubricity to the fuel, which is beneficial in many circumstances, particularly as sulfur and aromatics are removed from the fuel,” said Ray Good, engine application manager, Case Construction Equipment. “Biodiesel has a higher Cetane number and burns cleaner with less particulates and smoke emissions. It is also fully biodegradable and nontoxic.”

Good noted that biodiesel fuels approved for use must comply with the North American Standard ASTM D6751. “Biodiesel should be purchased from a trusted supplier who understands the product and maintains good product quality. Case recommends that you only use biodiesel from BQ 9000 accredited suppliers to maintain the quality and the consistency of the fuel.”

The early approval of biodiesel blends in Case engines joined a long line of industry firsts for Case. These include development of the first factory-integrated loader/backhoe, the invention of the Extendahoe™ extendable dipperstick; the return-to-travel and mid-mount cooling features for wheel loaders; power turn capability, PAT blades and tilting cabs (on under 100 hp models) on crawler dozers, and the availability of Ride Control on skid steers.

Case advises equipment owners to discuss the use of biodiesel, as well as the service requirements associated with its use, with their Case dealer. For a list of Case equipment that is approved for B20, visit www.casece.com.

Case Construction Equipment sells and supports a full line of construction equipment around the world, including the No. 1 loader/backhoes, articulated trucks, excavators, telescopic handlers, motor graders, wheel loaders, vibratory compaction rollers, crawler dozers, skid steers, compact track loaders and rough-terrain forklifts. Through Case dealers, customers have access to a true professional partner—with world-class equipment and aftermarket support, industry-leading warranties and flexible financing. More information is available at www.casece.com. Case is a division of CNH Global N.V. (NYSE: CNH), a majority-owned subsidiary of Fiat S.p.A. (FIA.MI).
