(NYSE:PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today

"We have invested significantly in the development of this technology and to
see its benefits be proven out in the marketplace is very rewarding," said
Jeff Cullman, President – Hydraulics Group. "Miami-Dade has seen some
tremendous results with their test fleet and we are pleased they have made
such a strong commitment to the technology with this large order. While they
were able to secure federal EPA funding for half of this order, investing
their own money demonstrates the positive economics and payback on the
technology as a stand-alone purchase."

Miami-Dade used funding from the United States Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) to purchase 15 of the vehicles as part of the National Clean Diesel
Campaign's Emerging Technologies List. RunWise is the only drivetrain
technology on the list. 

"We've been very pleased with the overall performance of the vehicles with
RunWise technology," said Danny Diaz, Director of Fleet Management for Miami
Dade County. "The savings we are seeing is significant when you look at the
long-term with these hybrid trucks."

Beyond brake energy recovery capabilities and reduced noise levels, the
Autocar refuse trucks equipped with RunWise technology commonly demonstrate
annual fuel savings in the range of 35-50 percent (equivalent to a 50-100
percent improvement in fuel economy measured in miles per gallon) for the
automatic side loader, reusing as much as 71 percent of the vehicle's braking
energy. Additional benefits include reduced maintenance costs, less engine
wear and tear as well as extended brake life.

The RunWise version of the Autocar refuse trucks is currently in operation in
Miami-Dade County and a number of cities around the country including in
Hialeah, Florida; Miami, Florida; Seymour, Indiana and Austin, Texas.
