RACINE, Wisconsin - (December 1, 2008) - A new international Web portal,, is bringing live bidding to the used agricultural and construction equipment industries. Equipment AlleySM is a centralized source to find, buy, list and sell used agricultural and construction equipment that goes beyond the borders of nations and brands.

According to Brett Law, Director of Asset Remarketing at CNH Capital, is an important step forward for both buyers and sellers of used equipment.

"It's the live bidding, a versatile search engine and a user-friendly interface that make EquipmentAlley.comunique," he says. "And other features such as language translation, payment calculators and currency exchange that help make this a truly global marketplace."

The site is open to the general public to view all equipment listings and to equipment dealers and distributors for online bidding and buying. As site capabilities are added, the general public will also have the opportunity for real-time online bidding. Used equipment from most manufacturers is available in one place, with an industry-leading search lists agricultural equipment, construction equipment, commercial lawn and garden equipment, commercial vehicles, commercial trailers, back lot equipment and parts and accessories. Law calls it the industry's most comprehensive clearing house for used machinery.

"We've tried to make sure that Web visitors can find everything they might need at a single Web site," Law explains. "Our users can browse through categories and look at photos and condition reports of the equipment for sale, all while keeping track of what comparable equipment is selling for. And because is sponsored by CNH Capital, we can go that extra mile, offering online credit application and financing options."
