Cellutrak saved the day, this time a Landscape Company in Surrey, British Columbia was able to recover 2 stolen Kubota machines worth $110,000 using the GPS tracking system.
April 2023 -- At 3:30AM, heavy machinery thieves stole two Kubota tractors off a commercial job site in Surrey. They drove the machines a short distance and attempted to hide both orange tractors in a forested area. Upon arrival to the job site, a landscape worker noticed that both machines were missing.
The owner had never experienced tractor theft, however installed a Cellutrak GPS tracking device in the SVL75 offered by their local Kubota dealer to minimize his risk. Knowing what was available through the Cellutrak-Kubota solution, the owner contacted Cellutrak’s 24/7 theft hotline and the dedicated team members provided the real time locations which turned out to be within a 5 KM radius of the job site. The owner recuperated both the Kubota SVL75 and the unequipped Kubota U17 within 24 hours of the theft. Luckily, this story had a happy ending, but when you operate a fleet, any of the vehicles could be targeted.
