Heavy equipment theft is a highly lucrative criminal market, and an increasing challenge for farm and heavy equipment owners and operators. According to the National Crime Information Center, there were more backhoes, Bobcats, bulldozers, cranes and front end loaders stolen in 2004 than in any previous year, and those increasing costs are being passed directly to you.
Unlike personal auto theft, where vehicles are often recovered when a thief has finished a joy ride or crime spree, the enormous resale value of heavy equipment leads to a very low recovery rate – just 8% – and rising insurance costs. Industry surveys track the costs of heavy equipment theft at nearly $2 billion per year.
