The backhoe is the first machine to be produced by Ashok, three years after the JV's launch.

"Construction equipment market is growing between 20-25% if you look at the aggregate of the last few years," said company chairman V Sumantran. "While John Deere brings in their advanced technical knowhow and vast experience in global construction equipment space, Ashok Leyland would lend its in-depth knowledge of the Indian market, proven expertise in manufacturing, sourcing and distribution."
