RACINE, Wis., - (January 23, 2009) - Tim McMichael, a foundry manager at CMC Corporation in McDonough, Ga., is the winner of the 2008 Case Construction Equipment Skid Steer Sweepstakes, the company announced today.

As the winner of the CNH Parts & Service online sweepstakes - which ran on the website from June 6 through November 30 - McMichael will receive a two-year lease on a new Case 420 Skid Steer, a prize valued at more than $23,000. The sweepstakes was open to anyone working in the construction industry, and McMichael's name was drawn randomly from more than 1,200 entrants.

McMichael, whose primary job duties involve maintenance, said he's excited about the opportunity to discover what Case has to offer in a skid steer.

"I'm thrilled about winning the lease on a Case 420 Skid Steer," said McMichael, who lives in Jackson, Ga., with his wife, Amanda. "The power and adaptability of the 420 should allow me to use it for a lot of different jobs."
