Grassland UK: Block Stem steering lock

With machine theft becoming an increasingly common issue there are plenty of systems popping up to aid in the fight against crime.

But sometimes it is the simplest ideas that have the greatest potential. Derwent Trading in Wolverhampton offers a range of steering locks that simply clamp over the steering ram when it is at full-lock, with the result that the machine can only driven around in circles. Thatcham-approved, the company says insurance premiums can be reduced by up to 40% just by using a Block Stem lock. Prices range from £270 to £390 and a £135 version for trailer ring-hitches is also available.
