Farm Equipment Manufacturers and Dealers are Committed to Providing Maintenance, Diagnostic, and Repair Tools to End Users
The “Right to Repair” is not the Right to Modify
The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), the North American Equipment Dealers Association (NAEDA), and their members are dedicated to supporting farmers and their equipment needs, reducing downtime and maximizing productivity. Therefore, AEM and NAEDA reiterate their joint commitment to provide end users with the information and tools needed to maintain, diagnose, and repair their equipment.
To the extent not already available, the maintenance, diagnostic and repair information listed below will be made available to end users through authorized agricultural dealers at fair and reasonable terms, beginning with tractors and combines put into service on or after January 1, 2021. End users will also be able to purchase or lease diagnostic tools through authorized agricultural dealers. Certain information and tools may be available earlier.
Manufacturers, through authorized agricultural dealers, are committed to provide access to:
- Manuals (Operator, Parts, Service)
- Product Guides
- Product Service Demonstrations, Training, Seminars, or Clinics
- Fleet Management Information
- On-Board Diagnostics via diagnostics port or wireless interface
- Electronic Field Diagnostic Service Tools, and training on how to use them
- Other publications with information on service, parts, operation, and safety
Using this information and these tools, which will be available for purchase, lease, or subscription through authorized dealers, end users will be able to identify and repair numerous problems they may encounter with their equipment.
The industry supports equipment users’ ability to maintain, diagnose, and repair their machinery. However, the ability to diagnose and repair does not mean the right to modify. For safety, durability, environmental, and liability reasons, diagnostic and repair information and tools will not permit consumers to do the following:
- Reset an immobilizer system or security-related electronic modules,
- Reprogram any electronic processing units or engine control units,
- Change any equipment or engine settings negatively affecting emissions or safety compliance,
- Download or access the source code of any proprietary embedded software or code
This commitment to providing maintenance, diagnostic and repair tools is a reaffirmation of the importance of seeking commonsense solutions to meet users’ needs. The industry is eager to continue working with end users to provide the most innovative and high-quality equipment to meet the needs of modern production agriculture.
