Automatrics Limited, have this year achieved what was believed impossible with the protection, tracking and recovery of stolen breaker attachments.
Plant security protection, with reliable electronic tracking devices, for construction machinery attachments, such as concrete breakers, crushers and buckets, has proven extremely difficult to fit due to the harsh work environments. The theft trends for this vulnerable, yet highly prized equipment, are on the way up, with attachment resale values achieving thousands of pounds. Attachments are often left unsecured and, once stolen, can be virtually impossible to trace. Criminals are therefore free to sell on stolen attachments with a somewhat lower risk of capture than, say, selling a stolen vehicle. This all makes machine attachments very attractive to criminals.
