One of our plant hire customers contacted us at 8 am to report a Takeuchi TB230 stolen overnight from a worksite close to Highfield south of Sheffield. We sent a remote signal to connect the Automatrics MTrack theft recovery device and this connected at 09.38 to report a GPS position at S6 1NJ Sheffield, Limestone Cottage Lane. Sheffield continues to be a hotspot for plant theft in 2020 with no let up during the COVID 19 lockdown.


The mapping data was sent to Sheffield Police who attended a woodland / wasteland area to locate and recover the machine within a 3 hour police recovery operation. Super support from @SYPSheffield #southyorkshirepolice great Job !
