Satellite tracker found machine in 2 hours!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, just thought I`d spread the good news about a TW150DHB that was stolen this morning in Hull.

 

It is fitted with a Satrak satellite tracker by Orange Plant here in Tockwith and was recovered by the Police within 2 hours!!

 

They have arrested 4 individuals and the machine is now back with the guy working.

 

I know weve had some horror stories in the industry about machines going walkabout and they still seem to be happening. Just check out the threads before this one.

 

For those of you who keep saying that trackers dont work. I hope you are not back on here one day writing a similar thread. Please secure your machinery.

 

Just remember its an essential tool of your trade.

There are so many trackers on the market that charge differing fees monthly etc.

The one we use has a one off payment to supply and fit with no monthly subs.

Its tried and tested for vibrations and water ingress in the Arb industry as proved in this thread.

 

Cost £850 + vat.

 

Ive spoken to so many people and everybody have differing opinions of trackers and indeed security measures in general.

 

There is one less chipper stolen tonight due to the machine that was fitted to the chipper that went walk about in Hull.

 

If you ask anyone who has been a victim of these morons and has suffered the problems of replacement costs, insurance nightmares and the extra costs to upgrade their existing "security measures " (IC), they would think it a small price for the piece of mind it affords to a valuable piece of equipment.

 

It take around 2 hours to retro fit so that theives cannot see it. Timberwolf are also looking at fitting it in factory as an option.

 

Sure you can find cheaper models etc but weve seen them all and the bad fitting too.

 

regards,
