     Schedule(s) (the 'Schedule') executed and to be executed by the parties and

     absolute and unconditional without any claim of setoff or compensation by
     Lessee. Lessee shall not be permitted to prepay its Rentals or other
     obligations. Lessee shall on the Lease Commencement Date pay Lessor the
     number of advance rentals, if any, set forth in the Schedule. Such advance
     rentals shall not constitute a security deposit and shall not be refundable
     to Lessee under any circumstances, but shall be applied by Lessor against
     subsequent Rentals in reverse order of maturity.

3.   Use. Lessee will cause the Equipment to be operated in accordance with any
     applicable manufacturer's manuals or instructions, by competent duly

     from such location in ordinary course of Lessee's business.

4.   Maintenance. Lessee assumes all risk of loss or damage to the Equipment by
     any cause whatsoever from the date of shipment thereof until it is returned
     to Lessor and the Schedule with respect to it is terminated, and agrees
     that the Equipment will be installed and maintained in good operating
     condition at Lessee's expense and returned to Lessor promptly at the expiry
     of the Lease Term in good operating condition (ordinary wear and tear

5.   Alterations. Lessee may make alterations, additions or improvements to the
     Equipment provided such alterations, additions or improvements shall not
     decrease the value of the Equipment or impair its utility. Any alterations,
     additions or improvements to the Equipment shall be at Lessee's expense and
     shall belong to and become the property of Lessor subject to the terms of
     this Agreement during the Lease Term of such Equipment. Lessee may remove
     any such alterations, additions or improvements at the expiration of the
     Lease Term of such Equipment, provided Lessee shall repair any damage to
     the Equipment or the premises where located resulting from or occasioned by
     such removal and provided after any such removal Lessee shall restore the
     Equipment to its original state and condition (ordinary wear and tear

6.   Insurance. As and from the earlier of the date upon which Lessor pays any
     part of the cost of an item of Equipment or acquires ownership of or title
     to an item of Equipment or bears any risk, responsibility and liability
     therefor and thereafter throughout the Lease Term of an item of Equipment.,
     Lessee shall at its sole expense:
     (a)  insure the Equipment against all risks of physical loss or damage,
          including without limitation loss by fire (including extended
          coverage), theft, collision and such other risks of loss as are
          customarily covered by insurance on such type of equipment by prudent
          operators of businesses similar to that in which Lessee is engaged, in
          such amounts, in such form and which such insurers as shall be
          satisfactory to Lessor, but in no event shall such insurance be less
          than an amount (the 'Loss Value') equal to the present value from time
          to time of all unpaid amounts due as Rental or otherwise (including
          the purchase option amount or any amounts due if the purchase option
          is not exercised, if applicable) with respect to such Equipment,
          calculated by discounting such amounts at the rate of six percent (6%)
          per annum, which amount the parties agree represents an estimate of
          the full replacement value of the Equipment from time to time during
          the Lease Term.
     (b)  Maintain public liability and property damage insurance in respect of
          the use, operation and possession of the Equipment and the ownership
          thereof by Lessor with insurers satisfactory to Lessor in such form
          and with such limits of liability as Lessor may form time to time
          reasonably require.
     Each insurance policy will name Lessee and Lessor as insureds will name
     Lessor as an additional insured and loss payee thereof and shall contain a
     clause requiring the insurer to five to Lessor at least 30 days' prior
     written notice of any alteration in the terms of such policy or of the
     cancellation thereof. At Lessor's request, Lessee shall furnish to Lessor a
     certificate or certificates of insurance or other evidence satisfactory to
     Lessor that such coverage is in effect, provided, however, that Lessor
     shall be under no duty to either ascertain the existence of or to examine
     such insurance policy or to advise Lessee in the event such insurance
     coverage shall not comply with the requirements hereof. If any such
     policies of insurance contain a co-insurance clause, Lessee shall either
     cause such co-insurance clause to be waived or maintain at all times a
     sufficient amount of insurance to meet the requirements of any such
     co-insurance clause so as to prevent Lessee from becoming a co-insurer
     under the terms of any such policy. Lessee will, at its expense, make all
     proofs of loss and take all other steps necessary to recover insurance
     benefits unless advised in writing by Lessor that Lessor desires so to do
     at Lessee's expense. Proceeds of insurance shall at the option of Lessor be
     disbursed by Lessor against satisfactory invoices for repair or replacement
     of Equipment, provided there is no Default hereunder, or be retained by the
     Lessor for application against Lessee's obligations hereunder, and if the
     proceeds received are less than the Loss Value of the Equipment lost,
     Lessee shall immediately pay to Lessor the amount of such deficiency. The
     total or partial loss of the Equipment or its use or possession shall not
     relieve Lessee from its obligations and liabilities hereunder.

7.   Uninsured Loss and Damage. If any item of Equipment is lost, stolen,
     destroyed or damaged beyond repair and is not covered by insurance in the
     amount required by section 6 for any reason, or in the event of any
     condemnation, confiscation, seizure or expropriation of such item. Lessee
     shall immediately pay to Lessor the Loss Value of such item, at which time
     Lessor will transfer to Lessee, without recourse or warranty of any nature
     whatsoever, all of Lessor's right, title and interest in such item of


8.   Laws and Regulations. Lessee shall comply with all laws relating to the
     Equipment, its possession and use and the ownership thereof by Lessor.

9.   Representations and Warranties of Lessee. Lessee represents and warrants to
     Lessor, which representations and warranties shall be deemed to be repeated
     on each day that this Agreement remains in force, that:

          good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its corporation,
          and Lessee has the power, corporate or otherwise, to enter into this

          other instrument to which Lessee is a party or by which Lessee or any
          of its property or assists may be bound; and
     (d)  there are no actions, suits or proceedings pending or, to the
          knowledge of Lessee, threatened in any court or tribunal or before any

     abatement and shall seek recourse solely against the supplier or
     manufacturer of such Equipment. For such purpose, Lessor assignees to
     Lessee the benefit of all warranties and guarantees provided by
     manufacturers or suppliers of Equipment. If the manufacturer or supplier
     substitutes replacement equipment for any Equipment described in a
     Schedule, Lessee will promptly give Lessor notice thereof together with
     such particulars as are necessary to prepare a corrected Schedule and such
     replacement equipment shall be deemed Equipment.

     ('Default') and under all Schedules if:
     (a)  Lessee fails to pay any Rental or other amounts payable under any
          Schedule or hereunder when due in the manner specified;

          with the entering into of this Agreement or any statement in any

          untrue or incorrect when made or furnished;

     (i)  Lessee or any guarantor of Lessee is in default under any other lease,
          contract, agreement or obligation now existing or hereinafter entered

     (k)  Lessor believes in good faith that the payment of the Rental or the
          performance or observation of any covenant herein is impaired or that

          being encumbered by Lessee or seized or otherwise attached by anyone
          pursuant to any legal process or otherwise.

For greater certainty, Lessee acknowledges that a Default under one Schedule
     shall be deemed a Default under all Schedules.

     any other right or remedy Lessor may have at law or in equity, the rights

               the then current Equipment location for the purpose of
               Repossession and acknowledges that Lessor may retain all prior
               payments as partial compensation for the use of the Equipment,
