THE manufacturer of a security tracking device has entered a partnership with the producer of a range of mini, subcompact and compact utility tractors and UTVs. 

ATVTrac’s system has received official endorsement from Kioti, meaning the gadget can be fitted onto the brand’s entire range. 

Launched over a decade ago, ATVTrac offers a dedicated security product, enabling owners of all types of machinery to have a live link to their machines 24/7, regardless of location. Kawasaki and Polaris are among those to have already endorsed the product. 

Forestry Journal:

“We’re extremely pleased to add yet another high-end manufacturer to our list of endorsed partners,” ATVTrac’s Rupert Archer-Smith said. “Kioti offers products for many different sectors of industry, much like we do, so it’s great to be acknowledged and endorsed. We’ve worked hard to make ATVTrac a truly useful asset, enabling single users and large estate operators to make use of its additional functions too.”

As well as Thatcham-approved security that protects owners’ machines via GPS, GPRS and radio frequency technology, ATVTrac utilises the same technology to keep workers and riders safe too, with handy functions like ATV Over, that can text or email a colleague or loved one, should the tractor, ATV or UTV topple over with the ignition turned on.

ATVTrac’s onboard technology is backed up by a Secure Operating Centre (SOC), who monitor movements 24/7, seven days a week, liaising with owners and police should a theft occur, and on top of this, can deploy Securitas agents to secure a stolen machine in tricky recoveries.

Kioti’s Patrick Desmond said: “We’re pleased to be able to endorse ATVTrac for fitment on our entire line-up. Theft is an ever-growing issue for machinery, so we were keen to be able to make a recommendation for our users by way of an official endorsement. 

“While there are many types of security products on the market, we believe that tracking provides the only truly credible solution. The team at ATVTrac have proven their credibility over many years, in a wide range of circumstances, so we were delighted to partner with them.”

Official UK Kioti dealers will be able to offer customers more information on the fitment of the ATVTrac unit.
