With figures showing a 5.2% increase in rural theft last year compared to 2012, at a cost of £44.5 million to the rural community in 2013 alone, it's an increasing issue for farmers and rural workers who wish to protect their equipment and livelihood.
Commenting on the launch of the new product, Carys Seabourne of Road Angel, said: ‘Utilising our extensive experience in automotive tracking, we are able to bring a new, tough and versatile product to the market, developed specifically to protect large high value assets located in the remotest of locations. Using its own internal power source, Tough Track benefits from a bullet proof construction that can be welded or bolted into place and then effectively tracked live by its user online.
‘Whether you wish to protect a large item of machinery, like a tractor or combine harvester, or wish to keep tabs on a container full of tools, Tough Track provides a viable and cost effective solution, that can be monitored online 24/7.’
As well as protecting larger assets, the company reports a proven track record with its Bike Trac ATV product, which is designed to not only protects quads and ATVs from theft, but also afford lone workers an extra level of safety with live tracking too.
Tough Track is available from Road Angel Fleet with a purchase price of £399+ Vat and subscription, while Bike Trac ATV is available from £299 plus subscription.
