performance  of such  other  activities  in  connection  with  the  Collateral

provisions  and as are  expressly  requested  by the  Owner  Trustee  and  are
reasonably within the capability of the Administrator.

(ii)  Notwithstanding  anything in this Agreement or the Related Agreements to
the contrary,  the Administrator  shall be responsible for promptly  notifying
the Owner  Trustee  in the event  that any  withholding  tax is imposed on the
Issuing  Entity's  payments  (or  allocations  of  income)  to the  "Owner" as
contemplated in Section 5.02(c) of the Trust Agreement.  Any such notice shall
specify  the amount of any  withholding  tax  required  to be  withheld by the
Owner Trustee pursuant to such provision.

(iii) Notwithstanding  anything in this Agreement or the Related Agreements to
the contrary,  the  Administrator  shall be responsible for performance of the

thereunder.  In connection  with paragraph (ii) above,  the  Accountants  will
provide  prior to [Date] a letter in form and  substance  satisfactory  to the

required,  the  procedures to be followed with respect  thereto to comply with
the  requirements  of the Code.  The  Accountants  shall be required to update
the  letter  in  each  instance  that  any  additional   tax   withholding  is

longer be required.

specified in Section 10.02 of the Trust Agreement  required to be performed in

the Trust Agreement.

(vi)  In carrying  out the  foregoing  duties or any of its other  obligations
under this Agreement,  the  Administrator  may enter into transactions with or
otherwise deal with any of its Affiliates;  provided,  however, that the terms
of  any  such  transactions  or  dealings  shall  be in  accordance  with  any
directions   received   from  the   Issuing   Entity  and  shall  be,  in  the
Administrator's  opinion,  no less  favorable to the Issuing Entity than would
be available from unaffiliated parties.

(vii) It is the intention of the parties hereto that the Administrator  shall,
and the  Administrator  hereby  agrees to,  execute  on behalf of the  Issuing
Entity  or  the  Owner   Trustee  all  such   documents,   reports,   filings,
instruments,  certificates and opinions as it shall be the duty of the Issuing
Entity or the Owner Trustee to prepare,  file or deliver pursuant to the Basic
Documents.  In  furtherance  thereof,  the Owner Trustee  shall,  on behalf of
itself and of the Issuing  Entity,  execute and deliver to the  Administrator,
and to each successor  Administrator  appointed  pursuant to the terms hereof,
one or more powers of attorney  substantially in the form of Exhibit A hereto,

the  Issuing  Entity  for the  purpose  of  executing  on  behalf of the Owner
Trustee  and  the  Issuing  Entity  all  such  documents,   reports,  filings,
instruments, certificates and opinions.

(c)   Non-Ministerial  Matters.  (i)  With  respect  to  matters  that  in the
reasonable   judgment   of  the   Administrator   are   non-ministerial,   the
Administrator  shall  not take any  action  unless  within a  reasonable  time
before the taking of such action,  the  Administrator  shall have notified the
Owner  Trustee of the  proposed  action and the Owner  Trustee  shall not have
withheld consent or provided an alternative direction.  For the purpose of the
preceding   sentence,   "non-ministerial   matters"  shall  include,   without
limitation:

(A)   the amendment of or any supplement to the Indenture;

(B)   the  initiation  of any claim or lawsuit by the  Issuing  Entity and the
      compromise  of any  action,  claim or lawsuit  brought by or against the
      Issuing  Entity  (other than in  connection  with the  collection of the
      Receivables);

(C)   the amendment, change or modification of the Related Agreements;

(D)   the appointment of successor Note  Registrars,  successor  Paying Agents

      Indenture Trustee of its obligations under the Indenture; and

(E)   the removal of the Indenture Trustee.

(ii)  Notwithstanding   anything  to  the  contrary  in  this  Agreement,  the
Administrator  shall not be obligated to, and shall not, (x) make any payments

take on its behalf.

2.    Records.  The Administrator shall maintain  appropriate books of account
and records relating to services performed  hereunder,  which books of account
and records shall be accessible  for  inspection  by the Issuing  Entity,  the
Owner  Trustee,  the  Indenture  Trustee and the  Depositor at any time during
normal business hours.

3.    Compensation.    As   compensation    for   the   performance   of   the
Administrator's  obligations under this Agreement,  the Administrator shall be
entitled to  $[_________]  per month which shall be payable in accordance with
Section 5.04 of the Sale and Servicing  Agreement.  The  Depositor  shall also
reimburse the  Administrator  for any of its liabilities and expenses  related
to its  performance  hereunder  or  under  any  Related  Agreement  (including
without  limitation  those  expenses  set forth in  Section  1(a)(ii)  of this
Agreement).

Administrator  shall be an independent  contractor and shall not be subject to
the  supervision  of the Issuing  Entity or the Owner  Trustee with respect to
the  manner  in which  it  accomplishes  the  performance  of its  obligations
hereunder.   Unless   expressly   authorized  by  the  Issuing   Entity,   the
Administrator  shall have no  authority  to act for or  represent  the Issuing
Entity or the Owner  Trustee in any way and shall not  otherwise  be deemed an
agent of the Issuing Entity or the Owner Trustee.

6.    No  Joint  Venture.  Nothing  contained  in  this  Agreement  shall  (i)
constitute  the  Administrator  and either of the Issuing  Entity or the Owner
Trustee as members of any partnership, joint venture, association,  syndicate,
unincorporated  business or other separate entity, (ii) be construed to impose
any  liability  as such on any of them or (iii) be  deemed to confer on any of

11.   Amendments.  This  Agreement may be amended,  with prior written  notice
to the  Rating  Agencies,  from  time  to  time by a  written  amendment  duly
executed  and  delivered  by the Issuing  Entity,  the  Administrator  and the
Indenture Trustee, with the written consent of the Owner Trustee,  without the
consent  of the  Noteholders  and the  Certificateholder,  for the  purpose of
adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or  eliminating  any of the
provisions  of this  Agreement or of modifying in any manner the rights of the
Noteholders or the Certificateholder;  provided,  however, that such amendment
will not, in the  Opinion of  Counsel,  materially  and  adversely  affect the
interest  of any  Noteholder  or the  Certificateholder  or  the  federal  tax
characterization  of the  Notes.  This  Agreement  may also be  amended,  with
prior  written  notice to the Rating  Agencies,  by the  Issuing  Entity,  the
Administrator  and the Indenture Trustee with the written consent of the Owner
Trustee and the  holders of Notes  evidencing  a majority  in the  Outstanding
Amount of the  Notes and the  holder of the  Certificate  for the  purpose  of
adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or  eliminating  any of the
provisions  of this  Agreement  or of  modifying  in any  manner the rights of
Noteholders  or  the  Certificateholder;   provided,  however,  that  no  such
amendment  may (i)  increase  or  reduce  in any  manner  the  amount  of,  or
accelerate or delay the timing of,  collections  of payments on Receivables or
distributions  that are required to be made for the benefit of the Noteholders
or the  Certificateholder  or (ii)  reduce  the  aforesaid  percentage  of the
holders  of Notes and the  holder of the  Certificate  which are  required  to
consent to any such  amendment,  without the consent of the holders of all the
outstanding  Notes and the  Certificate.  Notwithstanding  the foregoing,  the
Administrator  may not amend this  Agreement  without  the  permission  of the
Depositor, which permission shall not be unreasonably withheld.

12.   Successors  and  Assigns.  This  Agreement  may not be  assigned  by the
Administrator  unless such assignment is previously consented to in writing by



                                        10



the Issuing  Entity and the Owner Trustee and subject to the  satisfaction  of
the Rating  Agency  Condition  in respect  thereof.  An  assignment  with such
consent  and  satisfaction,  if  accepted  by the  assignee,  shall  bind  the
assignee   hereunder  in  the  same  manner  as  the  Administrator  is  bound
hereunder.  Notwithstanding  the foregoing,  this Agreement may be assigned by
the  Administrator  without  the  consent of the  Issuing  Entity or the Owner
Trustee  to a  corporation  or  other  organization  that is a  successor  (by
merger,  consolidation or purchase of assets) to the  Administrator,  provided
that such successor  organization executes and delivers to the Issuing Entity,
the Owner  Trustee  and the  Indenture  Trustee  an  agreement  in which  such
corporation or other  organization  agrees to be bound  hereunder by the terms
of  said  assignment  in  the  same  manner  as  the  Administrator  is  bound
hereunder.   Subject  to  the  foregoing,   this  Agreement   shall  bind  any
successors or assigns of the parties hereto.

13.   GOVERNING  LAW. THIS  AGREEMENT  SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN  ACCORDANCE  WITH
THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK,  WITHOUT  REFERENCE  TO ITS CONFLICT OF LAW

OBLIGATIONS  LAW) AND THE  OBLIGATIONS,  RIGHTS AND  REMEDIES  OF THE  PARTIES
HEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS.

14.   Headings.   The  section   headings   hereof  have  been   inserted  for
convenience  of  reference  only and shall  not be  construed  to  affect  the
meaning, construction or effect of this Agreement.

15.   Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in  counterparts,  each of
which  when so  executed  shall  together  constitute  but  one  and the  same
agreement.

16.   Severability.  Any  provision of this  Agreement  that is  prohibited or
unenforceable in any  jurisdiction  shall be ineffective to the extent of such
prohibition or unenforceability  without invalidating the remaining provisions
hereof and any such prohibition or  unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall
not   invalidate  or  render   unenforceable   such  provision  in  any  other
jurisdiction.

17.   Not Applicable to Caterpillar  Financial Services  Corporation in Other
Capacities.   Nothing  in  this   Agreement   shall   affect  any   obligation
Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation may have in any other capacity.

(a)   Notwithstanding   anything  contained  herein  to  the  contrary,   this
instrument  has been signed by [Name of Owner  Trustee] not in its  individual
capacity  but solely in its  capacity as Owner  Trustee of the Issuing  Entity
and in no event shall [Name of Owner  Trustee] in its  individual  capacity or
any  beneficial  owner  of the  Issuing  Entity  have  any  liability  for the
representations,  warranties,  covenants,  agreements or other  obligations of
the Issuing Entity hereunder,  as to all of which recourse shall be had solely
to the assets of the Issuing Entity.  For all purposes of this  Agreement,  in
the performance of any duties or obligations of the Issuing Entity  hereunder,
the Owner  Trustee  shall be subject to, and  entitled to the benefits of, the
terms and provisions of Articles VI, VII and VIII of the Trust Agreement.



                                        11



(b)   Notwithstanding   anything  contained  herein  to  the  contrary,   this
Agreement  has  been  signed  by  [Name  of  Indenture  Trustee]  not  in  its
individual  capacity  but solely as  Indenture  Trustee  and in no event shall
[Name of  Indenture  Trustee]  have  any  liability  for the  representations,
warranties,  covenants,  agreements or other obligations of the Issuing Entity
hereunder  or in any of the  certificates,  notices  or  agreements  delivered
pursuant  hereto,  as to all of  which  recourse  shall be had  solely  to the
assets of the Issuing Entity.

19.   Third-Party   Beneficiary.   The   Owner   Trustee   is  a   third-party
beneficiary  to this  Agreement  and is  entitled  to the rights and  benefits
hereunder and may enforce the provisions hereof as if it were a party hereto.

20.   Successor   Servicer  and   Administrator.   The   Administrator   shall
undertake,  as promptly as possible  after the giving of notice of termination
to the Servicer of the Servicer's  rights and powers  pursuant to Section 8.02
of the Sale and  Servicing  Agreement,  to enforce the  provisions of Section
8.02 with respect to the appointment of a successor  Servicer.  Such successor
Servicer shall,  upon compliance with the last sentence of the first paragraph
of Section  8.02 of the Sale and  Servicing  Agreement,  become the  successor
Administrator  hereunder;  provided,  however,  that if the Indenture  Trustee
shall become such successor Administrator,  the Indenture Trustee shall not be
required to perform any  obligations  or duties or conduct any  activities  as
successor  Administrator  that would be  prohibited  by law and not within the
banking  and  trust  powers  of the  Indenture  Trustee.  In such  event,  the
Indenture   Trustee  shall  appoint  a   sub-administrator   to  perform  such
obligations and duties.

21.   Nonpetition Covenants.
