"Tough Tracker" Helps Stop Equipment Theft
Made of a stronger-than-steel composite used in Formula 1 cars, the patented housing is welded directly to equipment. It’s indestructible as shown on a YouTube video of a man with a mall unable to smash it.
“The Tough Tracker was originally developed for the waste industry to enable assets to be easily tracked and monitored,” explains Cat Webb, marketing coordinator for Spaldings Ltd., a U.K. company that distributes the device for Tough Tracker Ltd. “As such it needed to have a self-contained power supply and be very secure and vandal-proof. The sophisticated software and unique features also mean that it’s particularly suited to agriculture, local authorities and the transport industry.”
Customers typically install the Tough Tracker in a visible place as a deterrent to thieves. It can be installed on tractors, trailers, fuel tankers, etc.
“Most customers will purchase multiple units,” Webb says. Besides the cost of the unit, there’s an annual satellite subscription fee.
