Crime bosses 'in tractor thefts'
Thousands of tractors, diggers and items of building equipment are being stolen as part of a "money laundering machine", industry experts have said.
The National Plant and Equipment Register said 3,678 items worth an estimated £36m were stolen last year
Satrack Plant Security System
The Satrack plant security tracking and immobilisation system is the first product to be specifically designed for plant operators giving instant tampering notification, tow-away alerts, remote immobilisation, tracking and location information in real time to your phone.
As a silent anti-theft system, the Satrack module calls its owner within seconds of theft detection
Satrack provides the highest level of plant security with no ongoing monitoring charges
Satrak is the market leader for plant security because its solution is flexible, cost effective, and designed by people who understand the plant industry’s biggest problem today – THEFT.
As stolen plant reaches record levels every year in the UK, it is costing the industry over £75 million per annum. The problem of plant theft is effecting an increasing number of British businesses including plant hirers, construction companies, civil engineers, utilities work, ground workers, and many other industries where machines are left unattended.
How does Satrak help?
Their are no ongoing running costs to pay to Satrak in the form of monitoring or airtime. This allows the cost to be conveniently included in the machine purchase cost and finance agreement. Importantly the unit can be transferred when machines are bought and sold. Retro fitting the system to older machines is cost effective because of the low one off cost.
The remote immobiliser can be activated by the hire desk, site supervisor, fleet manager or plant supervisor automatically or via any phone to ensure the machines are safely secured, without needing to be on site.
The Satrak unit is hidden within the machine or vehicle, and it monitors its status 24 hrs a day, knowing its position and status, at all times.
The owner of the equipment is in direct contact with the machine, avoiding unnecessary costs and time delays through use of third party monitoring centres and recovery teams.
Satrak has the crucial benefit of being a GPS tracking system as well, so that when the machine is stolen through a ‘bogus’ hire situation or the immobiliser is avoided the machine can be recovered swiftly. Using the Global Positioning System (GPS) the Satrak is able to pinpoint its position to within 10 meters anywhere in the world, meaning that location information is accurate and reliable, making recovery quicker, and inexpensive, nor involving 3rd party recovery teams.
Satrak is specifically designed for the harsh environment that plant machines have to operate in. The unit is fully water and dust proofed, and built to military standards of ruggedisation to ensure it can withstand vibration, and the hot and cold temperatures that it is exposed to.
