JCB hails Cesar breakers marking
First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
Seven models in JCB’s Hammermaster hydraulic breaker ranges are to get CESAR marking as standard to combat construction equipment theft.
JCB says it was the first major manufacturer to make CESAR (Construction Equipment Security And Registration) standard on its construction range in 2007.
Paul Hartshorn, director and general manager of JCB Attachments, said: “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. Theft of attachments is an ever-growing and often uninsurable problem for our customers, which is having a big impact.
“By registering the breakers with CESAR we are aligning our hammers with the JCB carrier machines which are already protected by CESAR and Datatag technology.”
Datatag has developed a special marking system to cope with the demanding application and working conditions that a hydraulic breaker will encounter. The new system was developed in conjunction with hirer Clee Hill Plant.
CESAR will initially be offered on JCB’s HM100, HM100Q, HM140, HM140Q, HM166Q, HM266Q and the HM386Q and additional models may be added at a later date.
