Cashman Equipment Introduces Machine Security SystemLas Vegas-based Cashman Equipment is now offering the Machine Security System on new Caterpillar equipment and will soon offer it for retrofitting on older model machines.
“Machine theft is a very costly, and unfortunately a very common, problem for equipment owners in Southern Nevada,” said Bruce Zupancic, Cashman Equipment’s product support manager. “When machines are stolen or damaged by unauthorized use, it costs our customers thousands of dollars they shouldn’t have to spend. The MSS will help eliminate these problems without needing after hours security coverage.”
When MSS is activated on a Cat machine, only its programmed digital key will be able to start the machine. When the MSS is deactivated, the digitally programmed key is not required to operate the vehicle.
The MSS is available for most new Cat skid-steer loaders, backhoe loaders, compact wheel loaders, medium wheel loaders and telehandlers.
