WITH QUAD thefts still a problem in rural areas, a newly updated asset tracking kits from specialists ATVTrac, will be at Lamma.

Its updated system for agricultural applications – based on its BikeTrac product – is a Thatcham approved device that means as soon as a machine is unlawfully moved, the unit will send the owner a text and e-mail to notify movement.

Its operating centre will then liaise with the police to track the vehicle down. The system also keeps tabs on battery voltage, notifying the owner again via text or e-mail if the vehicle’s battery drops below a certain level, as well as a unique ‘ATV Over’ function that notifies you if a machine tips over more than 80 degrees, with the ignition on.

ATVTrac also works with fleet users and an online online portal can track numerous machines on one-screen. As well as additional peace of mind for lone workers and farmer safety, it also allows fleet operators to manage and react to jobs or tasks as they occur.

It now has a simplified service, with first-year subscription fees (£399 plus VAT) included in the purchase price. Further subscription costs £9.99 per month, or £99.99 per year. All NFU mutual policy holders fitting this device can claim up to a 12.5% discount off their insurance premium.
