John Deere Monopoly on Repair Services Antitrust Complaint

March 24, 2022

Deere & Company, which does business as John Deere, makes agricultural equipment. This antitrust class action concerns what the complaint alleges is a monopoly on the repair services for this equipment. According to the complaint, the computerized engine control units (ECUs) now built into the equipment require specific tools and software that Deere has not made accessible to independent repair shops or owners who would like to do their own repairs. Deere dealers are also forbidden from giving others access to these tools and software, the complaint says, allowing them to make ‚Äúsupracompetitive profits‚ÄĚ for these services.
