    Which excavators are made by the same people??

    I've been researching many excavators lately and learned that most are made by just a few manufactures and then relabeled by others. So I was working on putting together a list as a reference and was wondering if anyone could add to my list.

    Kobelco (Manufacture) relabled as
    Case, New Holland, Link Belt, Kobelco

    Hitachi and John Deere

    Cat and (JCB)?????? I don't know about this one but I thought there might be some possibility there. If anyone has any more it'd be very helpful. Thanks

    There is a lot of collabaration between manufacturers but JCB aren't associated with Cat as far as I know.

    JCB were working with Japanese manufacturer Sumitomo to build the original JS range but once they were ahead of the game they severed the tie and are now working alone.

    I think Sumitomo are working with Linkbelt and are linked through the CNH group.

    Someone may have better insight but I think Cat were working with Mitsubishi and now have some association with O&K after their bad experience with building their own mining shovels.

    Volvo were working with Ackermann but purchased Samsung and that's what their mainline excavators are based on.

    Komatsu work independently but purchased Demag to acquire large shovel technology.

    If CAT & JCB are together, you can't tel because they look nothing alike not to mention that CAT is way better built.

    ASV & CAT are together on the tracked skid steers

    Interesting... JCB quality and finish looked very impressive on the JS series that were at Conexpo. If they are so much better where are new Cat C series excavators built?

    Okay that makes sense. I had heard just in passing that Cat had something to do with JCB but it makes more that they don't. Does anyone have connections with Hyundai that anyone knows about?

    They use NAGANO mini excavators.

    I know Bobcat builds their own, with the exception of the 442. I think Terex builds it for them. The rest, they claim are built in the U.S.

    Case and New Holland are now part of CNH Global, so you'll see plenty of twins from them in all types of machines

    Okay I think your right although it doesn't make sense to me why Case wouldn't just use Kobelcos as they are all under the same overall umbrella it looks like Case and Linkbelt are Sumitomo while New Hollands are just Kobelcos with a different coat of paint.

    So so far we have

    Deere/Hitachi
    Case/Link Belt/Sumitomo
    Kobelco/New Holland

    Any more?
