One set of manuals are included with each machine, a second set of manuals are available (upon request) at no charge. Additional manuals sets may incur a charge to the Buyer. Delivery and Storage: The quoted prices are F.O.B. our factory, Auburn, WA. This means that title to the equipment is transferred to the Buyer once the equipment is placed on our dock for pickup by the carrier. Risk of loss, damage or shortage shall pass from Seller to the Buyer upon delivery to and receipt by the freight carrier from Seller at Seller’s facility. Although Seller will use all reasonable efforts to meet quoted and acknowledged delivery date(s), they are approximate and not guaranteed. Seller reserves the right to make partial shipments unless otherwise agreed to prior to the purchase. Buyer will designate the shipping location, which shall be the Buyer’s installation site or Buyer’s storage facility if the installation site is not or cannot be ready to receive and install the equipment pursuant to this agreement. The Buyer will bear all storage and handling expenses if shipment is to the Buyer’s storage facility, as well as transfer of the equipment to the installation site when ready. Damaged Shipment ‐‐ As a matter of customer service, Seller will assist in filing damage or shortage claims, provided the equipment was shipped prepaid. If the shipment was sent Freight Collect, 3rd Party, or any other shipping method designated by the Buyer, the Buyer has the full responsibility of filing the claim against the freight company. In all cases, the Buyer has the responsibility to inspect the shipment for completeness and to assure it is free of any visible damage. If the order does not appear complete or there is visible damage, the Buyer must mark “shipment not complete” or “visible damage upon receipt” on the Bill of Lading and notify Seller and freight carrier no later than one (1) day after the shipment was received. To make resolution of the claim easier, Seller recommends that the Buyer photograph all visible damage and forward copies to Seller and freight carrier. All concealed freight damage claims must be submitted to the freight carrier no later than fifteen (15) calendar days after receipt of the shipment. In any event, acceptance will be deemed to have occurred no later than thirty (30) days after shipment absent rejection by the Buyer. Insurance: All equipment shipped via prepaid freight, the shipment damage claims must be made by the Seller in order to be eligible for damage compensation. In order for a claim to be filed, the Buyer or his agent is responsible to inspect all equipment as it arrives and fully document (including digital pictures) of any visible damage to the equipment and/or crating / packaging. Further, all documented damage must be noted on the trucker’s Bill of Lading. If the damage is excessive the Buyer is instructed not to accept delivery of that item and note on the Bill of Lading “refused shipment due to excessive damage.” All damage claims including documentation and pictures must be submitted to the Seller within twenty‐four (24) hours so that an insurance claim can be made by the Seller on behalf of the Buyer. Further, for any equipment that damage has been noted it should not be uncrated or altered in any way until the Insurance Adjuster has seen the shipment. Failure to do this could result in the claim being denied. Lastly, should the Buyer or his agent fail to document any damage or note it on the Bill of Lading then this will void the right to make an insurance claim, NO EXCEPTIONS. Installation: Where applicable, the Buyer at its own expense shall arrange for timely completion of all necessary preparations for installation, including permits and utilities (water, gas, electricity, HVAC, etc.) for the purchased equipment. All utilities must conform to equipment requirements as provided by Seller. The Buyer is solely responsible for May 9, 2012

The Buyer is solely responsible for the cost of modifying equipment sold by Seller in order to comply with federal, state and local codes. If installation, trial run or start‐
up cannot begin, continue or be accepted due to a cause for which Seller has no control, the Buyer shall pay Seller for any delays, waiting time or travel expenses incurred as a result of this at Seller’s then‐current rates or actual out‐of‐pocket expenses, as the case may be. Sales Tax: It is the responsibility of the Buyer to collect and/or pay all sales, use or other applicable taxes to the local state taxing authority, as required by law.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Buyer agrees that Seller may make any filings under the Uniform Commercial Code (as applicable to Buyer and/or Seller) with respect to the Equipment or this Agreement including, but not limited to, financing statements, financing statement amendments, correction statements, information requests, and addendums to the full extent allowed by law (hereinafter collectively the “UCC Filings”). By executing this Agreement, the Buyer represents that the Buyer is fully authorized, as either a principal of the Buyer or a personal guarantor of the Buyer, to enter into all obligations related to the UCC filings, and to grant Seller the rights related to making UCC filings contemplated herein. In states where permissible, the Buyer explicitly authorizes the filing and recording of UCC financing statements showing Seller’s interest in the Equipment as a secured party and grants Seller the right to execute Buyer’s name as debtor thereto.
