In recent news, Thieves used an excavator like a can opener to steal $2.6M in on-highway armored van heist! (read more on the article here)
Detailed planning, careful observation of the surroundings and tools available, and dedication allowed these criminals to pull off a one of a kind heist. All too often construction equipment is like sitting ducks. Done for the day, workers turn the key, shut down and simply walk away assuming all is safe and sound on their construction site. When in reality, construction site theft accounts for over $1 billion dollars annually!
We may sound like a broken record, but if the equipment had been securely locked, the latest theft wouldn’t even have been possible. Why not protect your property with the simple solutions available?? Are you ready to secure your excavator? Our Excavator Lock secures both track drive controls in opposite directions. It will secure both small and large excavators. -Some Kubota® and JCB® mini excavators may have drive controls too thick for the lock to be installed.( Maximum dia. is 15/16”.) A 6 ½” Stabilizer Lock may be used on the back fill-blade hydraulic cylinder instead.
