Hitachi hails CESAR


Every Hitachi excavator and wheeled loader sold in the UK will now be fitted as standard with the CESAR Security System powered by Datatag technologies.

The Construction Equipment Association officially launched the CESAR Emissions Compliance Verification last year and describes it as a ‘bolt-on’ product that complements the existing security system and allows fast verification of a machine’s emissions category.

David Roberts, CEO of Hitachi Construction Machinery (UK), said: “CESAR is not only a proven theft deterrent, it provides an accurate and efficient proof of identity to the police when they need to trace stolen machines, which has been an industry-wide issue for years.

“Our customers also require a quick and easy way to identify which stage of the EU emission regulations their machines comply with, as more sites control and monitor their carbon footprint.”

Product support director Stephen Creaser added: “Having taken the decision to security mark all new machines with the CESAR security system, we also want to offer the same peace of mind to our existing customers. From early 2020 the CESAR security system will be available to existing customers as an aftermarket retrofit kit that can be installed at the customer’s premises or job site by a fully-trained Hitachi engineer.”
