On July 13, 2017, ALLU Finland Oy Ltd. settled a patent infringement lawsuit in the United States District Court against Rock Tools Equipment, LLC, and Rock Tools Attachments, LLC, of Greenwood Village, Colorado. The suit concerned technology relating to ALLU's Screening, Crushing, or Mixing Buckets.

ALLU filed the lawsuit on March 24, 2017, in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. The patents at issue are United States Patents No. 7,954,263 and 8,122,620, owned by ALLU Finland. In the two companies' settlement, Rock Tools admits that its model RTB20 infringes upon these patents. The company will permanently cease and desist in designing, manufacturing, or marketing any screening and crushing buckets that infringe upon ALLU Finland patents. The company also will remove descriptions and images of the disputed products from its website and social media pages.

According to ALLU USA President Edgar J. Chavez, “The patent system within the U.S. and across the world is meant to encourage and reward innovation. Without enforcement, the system would be pointless. ALLU Finland will defend its patented innovations in courts of law any time they are infringed upon. We appreciate the cooperation shown by Rock Tools in resolving this lawsuit amicably.”
