Liebherr and John Deere update crawler
Liebherr Construction Equipment Co.
and John Deere jointly announced
the signing of a long-term sourcing
agreement for Deere-branded 950-
and 1050-size crawler dozers, and
the discontinuation of the existing
product supply arrangement for crawler
loader machines between Liebherr-Werk
Telfs GmbH and John Deere’s Construction & Forestry
Division of Moline.
Under the original agreement signed
in December 2000, Liebherr supplied
large crawler dozers and crawler
loaders to John Deere for distribution
in the United States and Canada.
The companies have agreed that effective
January 2010, John Deere’s Construction & Forestry
Division will design and manufacture
the 605, 655 and 755 crawler loader
models in their Dubuque, Iowa factory
and will continue to distribute its
own line of crawler loader models
into the United States and Canadian
