Kubota SVL95 was stolen & recovered in Atlanta

Business owners today face major security issues on construction sites.

The construction industry is no stranger to machine theft. On January 4, to kick off the new year, a construction company was targeted for theft. This company was on Christmas holiday where they left their machine unattended on a construction site. Upon returning to work on January 4, they noticed their machine was missing. They called the police and the 24/7 Cellutrak theft hotline to obtain the location of the machine. They tracked down the machine to a residential address where the machine was being used on a job. The person using the machine was arrested. Thanks to the Cellutrak GPS tracking device installed on this SVL95 by a Kubota dealer in Georgia, the machine was returned to the construction company on the same day. Another satisfied Cellutrak-Kubota customer!

In the United States, it is estimated that between $300 million and $1 billion worth of construction equipment is stolen each year. It’s also estimated that less than 20% of stolen construction equipment is recovered each year, according to the National Crime Information Bureau (NCIB).
