John Deere Monopoly on Repairs for Its Equipment Complaint

March 12, 2022

This antitrust class action alleges that Deere & Company, which does business as John Deere, has acquired a monopoly on repairs of its agricultural equipment. The computerized engine control units (ECUs) built into the equipment, the complaint alleges require specific tools and software that Deere has not made accessible to independent repair shops or owners who would like to do the repairs themselves. Deere dealers are also forbidden from giving others access to these tools and software, the complaint says, meaning that they are the only ones who can make repairs and allowing them to make ‚Äúsupracompetitive profits‚ÄĚ for these services.
