The technical information published on this website is intended and made available only to users who have the necessary professional and technical skills, knowledge and qualifications, as well as the necessary equipment and tools. Specific repair or maintenance operations must be performed with the appropriate specified equipment and tools, and replacement parts or components. Any repair or maintenance operation undertaken by any user of this website on the basis of, as a result of or in connection with the technical information published on this website is performed under the sole responsibility of such user, and neither JCB, nor any of its affiliated companies or any of its distributors can be held liable for any bodily injury, damage to property, loss, expenses or any other damage, or any infringement to any laws or regulations, as a result of any such repair or maintenance operation.
Any information which specifically relates to the terms and conditions of any specific warranty action undertaken by JCB, any of its affiliated companies and/or any of its distributors, and which is included in any document published on this website, does not constitute technical information. Such information relates to past warranty actions undertaken by JCB, any of its affiliated companies and/or any of its distributors, and, as a consequence, neither JCB nor any of its affiliated companies or any of its distributors are bound by such warranty actions, or any term and condition thereof. Under no circumstances shall such information constitute any undertaking, commitment or promise by JCB, any of its affiliated companies and/or any of its distributors to apply, extend or renew such warranty action.
The fact that a piece of technical information which relates to a specific upgrade or repair work for any specific range of JCB product has been published on this website, and that the product belonging or used by a user of this website falls within such range, does not, as such, mean that the user's product effectively needs to be upgraded or repaired. Such necessity must be assessed by a professional repairer (being an Authorised Dealer if such upgrade or repair work is part of a warranty action by JCB, any of its affiliated companies and/or any of its distributors).
Information that is published on the web site may contain references or cross references to products, services etc. that are not announced or available in your country. The accuracy of such information cannot be guaranteed, particularly since this information is subject to change, specific requirements or availability and such references do not imply that JCB group intends to announce such products, services etc. in your country. Contact your local dealer for complete details regarding the products, services etc. which may be available to you and for ordering.
The service methods contained herein are an effective method to perform service and repair. When performing operations following procedures contained herein, use the appropriate tools as specified and recommended. If using non-specified or recommended tools and service methods, be sure to confirm your own personal safety practices and the safety of other technicians to avoid the possibility of causing personal injury to you or others.
When parts replacements are necessary, always use the same part number or equivalent parts.
It is important to note that any "Cautions" or "Notices" must be carefully observed in order to reduce risk of personal injury during service or repair and to reduce the possibility of improper service or repair causing damage to the product or rendering it unsafe. It is also important to understand that "Cautions" or "Notices" are not exhaustive because it is impossible to warn of all the possible hazardous consequences that might result from failure to follow the instructions contained herein.
Certain procedures or content elements may make reference to Warranty policy or practice - these policies or practices are only applicable to JCB authorised dealers. Non-dealer service providers have the responsibility to notify their customers of warrantable service and may make no financial claims to JCB for performing warrantable service.

Our contract with you
Our acceptance of your order for specific access rights or digital content will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you.
If you wish to make a change to your order please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
We may update or require you to update digital content, provided that the digital content shall always match the description of it that we provided to you before you bought it.
If the product is a one-off purchase of digital content, we will make the digital content available as soon as we accept your order.
If the products are ongoing subscription to receive digital content, We will supply the digital content to you until either the services are completed or the subscription expires (if applicable) or the contract is otherwise ended in accordance with these terms.
As we deliver the digital content to you immediately you will not have a right to change your mind about your order.
We may have to suspend the supply of a digital content to:
- deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
- update to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
