RACINE, Wis. - (July 1, 2008) - The Lawn & Garden Dealers Association (LGDA), a 2,500-member association based in Tulsa, Okla., has entered into an agreement with CNH Capital America LLC (CNH Capital) to offer the CNH Capital Commercial Revolving Account - a dedicated line of credit that LGDA members' qualified commercial customers can use for lawn and garden equipment, landscape supplies, parts, service and rental purchases.

LGDA chose CNH Capital because it is a well-established financing organization, working with nearly 2,500 agricultural and construction equipment dealerships nationwide. CNH Capital is the Racine, Wis.-based financial services business of agricultural and construction equipment maker CNH Global N.V.

"On a daily basis, we are always searching for programs that will benefit our members," says Kirk Nellis, Executive Director of the LGDA. "We examined every aspect of the CNH Capital Commercial Revolving Account program and believe it is the best program of its type for our members because it allows them to compete on a national scale."

The CNH Capital Commercial Revolving Account has been designed from the ground up to enhance the buying power of LGDA members and their commercial customers, by offering a dedicated line of credit with attractive terms, seasonal promotions and flexible repayment options.

In addition to offering the CNH Capital Commercial Revolving Account to their commercial customers, LGDA can now take advantage of a program that will help them close more sales, through targeted marketing support and special offers.

"Another key advantage is that LGDA members no longer need to carry any accounts receivables - now, they can utilize the flexible terms available on the program and get paid within two days of making a sale," says Don Pralle, Senior Director, CNH Capital Partner Programs. "This program is consistent with our overall approach to business: that is, working on behalf of our clients and their customers to support their mutual growth."
