It pays to lock up crawlers

LEAVING expensive crawler tractors unsecured in remote locations is an ideal thieving opportunity.

Compatible with Case, JCB, New Holland and Caterpillar machines, TLD offers a locking device for fastening rubber and steel tracks. Comprising a shackle, pin and padlock, the safety device fastens the track and frame together and is available in three sizes.

For locking steering systems, the company provides a heavy duty steel sleeve which locks over the ram using a pin and boxed padlock. Ram locks are available in standard sizes or as tailor made versions.

Also from TLD, is a range of tow eye locks for securing trailed equipment. Base prices for the tracks and ram locks are £169 and £128 respectively.
