JCB compensated by Asian manufacturer for backhoe clones

JCB has been paid compensation by an Asian manufacturer which cloned its 3CX backhoe loader.

This follows court actions by JCB against three Asian manufacturers at the Bauma show in April regarding product copying of backhoe loader and telehandler machines.

An undisclosed settlement payment has been agreed, and the Asian manufacturer will fundamentally redesign their backhoe loader.

Tim Burnhope, JCB’s group managing director for product development and commercial operations, said: “This is the fourth incident this year of an Asian manufacturer copying one of our machines and taking unfair advantage of 57 years of product development.

JCB is determined to act promptly and decisively in relation to such activities and stamp them out.”
