Datatag Your Machinery

Theft is a problem that unfortunetely affects all of us, even if you have had nothing stolen, your insurance premiums pay for those who have.  Datatag, established in the early 1990s redresses the balance in your favour.  The last decade has provided statistics that show Datatag is playing a major role in the prevention of theft for all kinds of property.

If someone is caught with stolen property they can only be convicted if it can be proved the item is stolen. Datatag provides a method of permanently marking your property in a way that is simple for the Police to identify, and extremely difficult for a thief to remove.

Manufacturers serial numbers are easy to remove and change, therefore finding out  the owner of the item can be potentially impossible.  With the Datatag system there are thousands of unique identification marks on the trailer, almost impossible for a thief to remove them all, without damaging the item.

The heart of the Datatag system is an electronic transponder that is designed to be hidden on the item. These tiny transponders possess an unique identification code that can be ‘read’ by a hand held scanner, used by the UK’s Police forces.


Here at New Forest Farm Machinery, we can supply and fit a Datatag system to your tractor, trailer or any machine for only £140+VAT. 

Datatag can help to reduce the chance of theft and increase the likelihood of stolen property being returned to you.
