If you’re the owner of a mini digger, then you’ll want to make sure it’s properly protected from theft.
Mini diggers can be very valuable pieces of equipment, and unfortunately, they’re often targeted by thieves. That’s why it’s important to take steps to prevent theft from happening in the first place.
In this blog, we’ll go over safety precautions for your mini digger. We’ll also discuss how you might utilise our RamLok, MiniLok and heavy-duty security chain to keep your mini digger safe and protected from theft.
Firstly, The Locks!
When it comes to protecting your mini digger from theft, there are a few things you can do.
First of all, it’s important to invest in a good quality lock (and where we come in!) Our RamLok, MiniLok and heavy-duty security chain are all great options for mini digger locks.
Not only are they made of tough, durable materials, but they’re also designed to be difficult for thieves to break or cut through.
The MiniLok is a small, simple-to-use device that clamps onto the drive sprocket to prevent the track from slipping off.
The MiniLok is an ideal choice for mini digger owners, as it’s made of tough, hardened steel and is designed to be both extremely difficult to cut through and also highly visible (making it a deterrent for thieves.)
Working in conjunction with the Lincmaster heavy-duty security chain, the MiniLok will fully secure your machine and offer another visual deterrent to potential thieves.
Our MiniLoks are available in the following sizes & prices:
- Micro: Micro track/width 180mm – £148
- Small: Up to 1.8-tonne track/width 230mm – £148
- Medium: 1.9-3.5 tonne track/width 300mm – £159
- Large: 4 tonne+ track/width 450mm – £175
With our RamLok fitted, it is impossible to drive a machine in a straight line.
The RamLok is made of tough, hardened steel and is designed to be both extremely difficult to cut through and also highly visible (again, making it a deterrent for thieves.)
The tried, tested, and certified RamLok is easily fitted to your equipment when used in conjunction with the Lincmaster heavy-duty security chain. Making the process simple, and not a burden.
Our RamLok costs £169.50, and successful adaptations of it, have also been created.
The Heavy Duty Security Chain
Our heavy-duty security chain is just that – a tough, durable chain that’s designed to fully secure your mini digger.
The chain is made of tough, hardened alloy steel and is designed to be both extremely difficult to cut through and also highly visible, as it’s fitted with a yellow passivated coating, for longer life, ensuring user comfort and of course, an extra visual deterrent.
Our heavy-duty security chain is available in 17 different variations, so you can find the perfect fit for your mini digger.
The general cost for a mini digger in the UK is now between £8,000 and £10,000 +.
This is how much it will cost you, to replace your mini digger if you were unfortunate to be targeted by thieves.
At Lincmaster, our RamLok, MiniLok and heavy-duty security chain altogether, will be an outgoing of around £400-£500, depending on your unique requirements.
It really is a no-brainer, isn’t it?!!
Ways To Protect Your Mini Digger, Alongside Our Devices
As well as investing in our quality products, there are a few other things you can do to help protect your mini digger from theft.
There’s No Such Thing As Too Many Deterrents!
One of the best ways to deter thieves is to make sure your mini digger is kept in a secure location with further visible deterrents, such as security lighting, CCTV cameras, fencing and alarm systems.
