Plant & Agricultural Machinery Tracking
Plant and Agricultural tracking
Protect your plant and agricultural machinery from thieves, with the use of tracking devices.
Plant and agricultural machinery trackers ensure you can fully protect your assets, and assist the police during recovery.
Insurance giants Allianz estimated that theft alone was costing the construction industry over £800million and with plant equipment often extremely expensive, there is a high risk of theft.
What makes this worse is how unlikely it is you will be able to retrieve construction plant once it has been stolen, without the use of anti-theft measures.
The Plant and Agricultural National Intelligence Unit carried out some research in 2016, and staggeringly, as little as 9% of machinery was recovered after theft. With agricultural equipment lost from some of the most isolated locations, maintaining a successful business and lifestyle becomes increasing difficult.
Trac360 Ltd, offer a range of tracking devices with the ability to support both the plant industry and the agricultural communities who depend on these resources.
Key Features of the Plant+ and Agri+ Range.
GPS + LBS Positioning: Accurate location details.

Additional Features of some of the Plant+ and Agri+ Range
Detection of ignition status: Lets you know when the ignition is switched on and off.
Remotely cut off fuel or power: Simple action using the mobile app will kill the engine.
Multiple alarms: Alerts will be triggered if vibration or towing is detected.
Set permitted working hours: Quick and easy operation to set the working hours of your machine to stop unauthorised use or machinery operating outside of working hours.
PLANT+ Range Tracking devices support Heavy Machinery such as;
As well as smaller pieces such as;
AGRI+ Range tracking devices champion the defence of Farming Machinery and tools such as;
Fit additional security measures, track and wheel clamps can be easily fitted making it difficult for the machine to be moved.
Add additional isolator switches: It doesn’t have to be a bespoke isolator switch, a simple on / off switch can be wired in to the fuel stop solenoid wiring stopping the engine from starting.
Immobilisation: Off the shelf immobilisers make it difficult for thieves to start the machine without the RFID tag, but this can cause issues for multiple drivers if they haven’t got the RFID tag! BUT if you use a latching relay setup you can have multiple circuits immobilised: Fuel, hydraulics and main ignition feed.
Keys: A lot of older machinery use the same key, its common knowledge on a number of manufacturers machines the same key will fit. Change the ignition switch barrel so the key you use to open the door can’t be used to start the engine.
Postcode: For machinery with cabs have your postcode painted on the roof making them easily identified from the air.
