(b)  The Seller makes the following representations and warranties as to the Receivables on which the Depositor relied in accepting the Receivables.  The parties hereto acknowledge that the representations and warranties below require the Seller to monitor conditions that it may not have the ability to monitor.  Accordingly, wherever the Seller makes, or is deemed to make, a representation that it cannot monitor, such representation shall be made as if prefaced with the phrase "to the best of the Seller's knowledge"; provided, however, that the determination as to whether a Repurchase Event has occurred pursuant to Section 6.02 shall be made without reliance on whether the Seller actually had knowledge of the accuracy of any of its representations.  Such representations and warranties speak as of the execution and delivery of this Agreement but shall survive the sale, transfer and assignment of the Receivables to the Depositor and the subsequent assignments and transfers of the Receivables pursuant to the Sale and Servicing Agreement and the Indenture:
 
(i)  Characteristics of Receivables.  Each Receivable (A) was originated in the United States of America by the Seller in the ordinary course of business or was originated by a Dealer in the ordinary course of business, in each case in connection with the retail sale by a Dealer of Financed Equipment in the ordinary course of such Dealer's business, was fully and properly executed by the parties thereto, and if originated by such Dealer, was purchased by the Seller from such Dealer and was validly assigned by such Dealer to the Seller in accordance with its terms, (B) has created a valid, subsisting and enforceable (subject to paragraph (iv) below) first priority security interest in favor of the Seller in the Financed Equipment, and if applicable, a valid, subsisting and enforceable (subject to paragraph (iv) below) security interest in favor of the Seller in the Cross-Collateralized Equipment, which security interests are assignable by the Seller to the Depositor, by the Depositor to the Issuing Entity and by the Issuing Entity to the Indenture Trustee, (C) contains customary and enforceable (subject to paragraph (iv) below) provisions such that the rights and remedies of the holder thereof are adequate for realization against the collateral of the benefits of the security and (D) provides for fixed payments (except as described below) on a periodic basis, yields interest at a fixed-rate (in the case of Receivables related to an Installment Sales Contract) and is prepayable without premium or penalty at any time.  The fixed payments provided for are sufficient to amortize the Amount Financed of such Receivable by maturity and yield interest at the APR.
 
 
7

 
 
(ii)  Schedule of Receivables.  The information set forth in the Schedule of Receivables to this Agreement is true and correct in all material respects as of the opening of business on the Cut-off Date and no selection procedures believed to be adverse to the Noteholders or the Certificateholder as assignees of the Depositor were utilized in selecting the Receivables.  The computer tape regarding the Receivables made available to the Depositor and its assigns is true and correct in all respects.
 
(iii)  Compliance with Law.  Each Receivable and the sale or lease of the Financed Equipment complied at the time it was originated or made, and at the execution of this Agreement complies in all material respects, with all requirements of applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations thereunder, including usury laws, the Federal Truth-in-Lending Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, the Federal Reserve Board's Regulations B and S and other equal credit opportunity and disclosure laws.
 
(iv)  Binding Obligations.  Each Receivable represents the genuine, legal, valid and binding payment obligation in writing of the Obligor, enforceable by the holder thereof (which as of the Closing Date is the Seller) in accordance with its terms, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency and other laws relating to the enforcement of creditors' rights generally and to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).  Such enforceability has not been and is not adversely affected by whether or not the Seller was or is qualified to do business in the state in which the Obligor was or is located.
 
 
8

 
 
(v)  Security Interest in Financed Equipment.  Immediately prior to the sale, assignment and transfer thereof, each Receivable shall be secured by a validly perfected first priority security interest in the Financed Equipment in favor of the Seller as secured party.  As of the Cut-off Date, such Financed Equipment is located in the United States of America.
 
(vi)  Receivables in Force.  No Receivable has been satisfied, subordinated or rescinded and no Financed Equipment been released from the lien granted by the related Receivable in whole or in part.  No Receivable is rescindable on the basis of whether or not the Seller was or is qualified to do business in the state in which the Obligor was or is located.
 
(vii)  Prospectus Information.  As of the Cut-off Date, each Receivable conforms and all Receivables in the aggregate conform, in all material respects, to the description set forth in the Prospectus, including all statistical data or otherwise.
 
(viii)  No Amendments.  No Receivable has been amended such that the amount of the Obligor's Scheduled Payments has been increased or decreased, except for increases or decreases resulting from the inclusion of any premium for forced-placed physical damage insurance covering the Financed Equipment.
 
(ix)  No Defenses.  No right of rescission, setoff, counterclaim or defense has been asserted or threatened with respect to any Receivable.
 
(x)  No Liens.  No liens or claims have been filed for work, labor or materials relating to any Financed Equipment that are liens prior to, or equal or coordinate with, the security interest in the Financed Equipment granted by the Receivable.
 
(xi)  No Default.  No Receivable has a payment that is more than 30 days overdue as of the Cut-off Date and, except as permitted in this paragraph, no default, breach, violation or event permitting acceleration under the terms of any Receivable has occurred and is continuing; and (except for payment defaults continuing for a period of not more than 30 days) no continuing condition that with notice or the lapse of time would constitute a default, breach, violation or event permitting acceleration under the terms of any Receivable has arisen; and the Seller has not waived and shall not waive any of the foregoing.
 
(xii)  Insurance.  Each Obligor is required to obtain and maintain physical damage insurance and/or liability insurance, as applicable, covering the Financed Equipment in accordance with the Seller's normal requirements.
 
(xiii)  Title.  It is the intention of the Seller that the transfer and assignment herein contemplated constitute a sale of the Receivables from the Seller to the Depositor, and that the beneficial interest in and title to the Receivables not be part of the debtor's estate in the event of the filing of a bankruptcy petition by or against the Seller under any bankruptcy law.  No Receivable has been sold, transferred, assigned or pledged by the Seller to any Person other than the Depositor.  Immediately prior to the transfer and assignment herein contemplated, the Seller has good and marketable title to each Receivable, free and clear of all Liens, encumbrances, security interests and rights of others and, immediately upon the transfer thereof, the Depositor shall have good and marketable title to each Receivable, free and clear of all Liens, tax, governmental or similar liens, encumbrances, security interests and rights of others; and the transfer of the Receivables to the Depositor has been or will be within 10 days after the Closing Date perfected under the UCC.
 
 
9

 
 
(xiv)  Lawful Assignment.  No Receivable has been originated in, or is subject to the laws of, any jurisdiction under which the sale, transfer and assignment of such Receivable or any Receivable under this Agreement, the Sale and Servicing Agreement or the Indenture is unlawful, void or voidable.
 
(xv)  All Actions Taken.  All actions necessary to give the Depositor a first priority perfected ownership interest in the Receivables pursuant to the UCC have been taken or will be taken within 10 days after the Closing Date.
 
(xvi)  Leases.  Each Lease, relating to any Receivable (A) creates a security interest rather than a lease for purposes of Section 1-201 of the UCC, (B) is not a "consumer lease" within the meaning of Article 2A of the UCC in any jurisdiction where said Article 2A has been adopted and governs the construction thereof, (C) to the best knowledge of Seller, the related Obligor has accepted the related Financed Equipment leased to it and has not notified Seller of any defects therein, (D) is by its terms an absolute and unconditional obligation of the related Obligor and non-cancelable, (E) requires the related Obligor to maintain the related Financed Equipment for its own account except for any rental, (F) the rights with respect to such Lease are assignable by the Seller thereunder without the consent of any Person, (G) is net to the Seller of any maintenance, taxes, insurance or other expenses, (H) contains provisions requiring the related Obligor to assume all risk of loss or malfunction of the related Financed Equipment and (I) may not be prepaid by its terms, although the Obligor may discharge its obligations by prepaying the aggregate remaining lease scheduled payments.
 
(xvii)  Maturity of Receivables.  Each Receivable has a final scheduled payment date due not later than the payment date occurring in August 2012 as of the Cut-off Date and the weighted average remaining term of the Receivables is 40 months as of the Cut-off Date.

(xxi)  No Repossessions.  No Financed Equipment securing any Receivable is in repossession status.
 
(xxii)  Chattel Paper.  Each Receivable constitutes "tangible chattel paper" within the meaning of the UCC of the States of New York and Nevada;
