    You must live in a bad area

    Unfortunatally I cant offer much advise. Because if they want it bad enough, they are going to get it. All you can do is make it harder. Just make sure you've got insurance.

    I like the hidden toggle/kill switch...and I have a game camera that is IR that goes up this weekend.

    This is awesome. That'd be cool if they tried this on Jason Bourne's tractor. He'd be there waiting and take care of business when they showed up.

    But really, you don't don't take a guy's tractor. That's just something you don't do.

    You will want a momentary SPST (Single Pole Single Throw) switch to disable the ignition. However, for added security you could use a momentary DPST (Double Pole Single Throw) switch to disable the ignition and the fuel pump which would prevent the engine from starting in the event that they got creative and tried to hotwire it.

    I LIVE in a great area. My side business, where I use and store my tractor, is known for theft....and my tractor and implements are all insured, but I really don't want another tractor so I'm trying to keep this one!

    get insurance.

    a cable, boot, or any other lock or device will fold near immediatly faced with a cutting torch or abrasive blade. givent hat you can get bat powered abrasive cutters, adn lil gaspony cutting torch carry kits.. just about anything not guarded by live human with gun, or insurance.. can be removed.

    Thanks! I think I'm looking at electrical devices and maybe a cheap column deterrent. If they want it they can get it, I just want to make it a little difficult.

    Everything is insured, but I want to keep my stuff and I don't want to trailer it in.

    If it will not start with the PTO engaged, leaving that engaged will stop the ignorant.
    May have been kids looking to joyride or vandalize things with it then run. Still not good.
    Game camera would be my first installation.

    Also thanks for serving all of us

    Yup pretty much sums it . Making it harder is'nt always a good idea as if you salvage it it has more damage , better to never see it again .
