With construction equipment thefts rising, JCB has announced that all models in its Hammermaster hydraulic breaker range will be marked under the Construction Equipment Security And Registration (CESAR) scheme as standard.
“This move is in direct response to our customers, who have asked us to come up with an effective anti-theft deterrent for their breakers,” said JCB Attachments director and general manager Paul Hartshorn. “Theft of attachments is an ever-growing and often uninsurable problem for our customers.”
Datatag has developed a special marking system to cope with the demanding applications and working conditions that hydraulic breakers are used under. This includes a tamper evident triangular registration plate, with a unique number for each breaker and a radio frequency identification (RFID) transponder.
