Paddock Safety: Think PLB

Safety has firmly established itself as one of the most important aspects of any industry, and farming and agriculture is no different.

With day-to-day activities such as yarding cattle, using UTVs, and the operation of heavy machinery there is the potential for things to go wrong, especially when operating alone or in remote areas with limited or no mobile reception.

As the only Australian Manufacturer of Emergency Beacons, GME has spent years producing emergency beacons that not only meet strict international standards, but also suit Australians needs and the harsh conditions they operate in. Our latest development is designed with farmers in mind and aims to provide them with emergency assistance if something goes wrong.

The MT610G Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is the latest in Emergency Beacons from GME and features a lightweight and compact design that is easy to activate in an emergency, being able to be activated with only one hand.

Additionally, it is IP68 rated, meaning it is completely dust proof and waterproof, ensuing it is ready to go regardless of the situation. Boasting a 7-year battery life, the MT610G will transmit for a minimum of 24 hours once activated, and  utilising the built-in 72 channel GPS Receiver, ensures fast transmission of accurate location information to rescue authorities which will generally be received in less than 15 minutes.

The MT610G comes backed by a 6 year warranty and is available from authorised GME dealers for $379  SRP.
