Kubota SVL75 stolen out a school yard in Texas, recovered by a contracting company using Cellutrak’s GPS tracking system.

The value of the Kubota SVL75 is $50,000. 

August 2023 – Early Tuesday morning, machine thieves broke into a gated school in Fairgreen, Texas and stole the machine. The thieves ripped out the Kubota SVL75 ignition wiring and took it about 0.6 miles to a forested area. Upon arrival to the school yard, one of the contractor’s employees noticed that the SVL75 was missing. 

The owner of the contracting company called the Cellutrak 24/7 theft hotline to help locate and track down the machine. The police were unresponsive at this time. Deep in the wooded area, guided by the Cellutrak system, the SVL75 was recovered and returned within the same day. It is a common trend that machine thieves take a vehicle to remote areas and leave it for 24-48 hours. That is why the window is so narrow when it comes to reacting and retracing the machine’s steps. 

General contractors can benefit in many ways from using Cellutrak’s GPS tracking system, as the platform supports both theft prevention and fleet management. Machine theft is not slowing down, and anti-theft device is becoming a requirement in securing fleets.
