    Default Recovered GREEN Kubota with Loader

    NEW kubota, BX2200D-60 ser # 61438, with front end loader LA211FL, serial #18238, now wearing a very nice coat of John Deer GREEN paint has been recovered.
    It seems one of Hilton's local pisspots stold the tractor, and drove it home, a distance of about 3 miles, at night, without being spotted. Well, the not being spotted part is beleivable, given the quality of the Monroe County Sheriff's Department.
    As the story goes, tha lad's father helped his darling son prepare and paint said orange tractor John Deer Green, in the family garage. Actually, it's quite a good paint job.
    The Sheriff's "investigators" were finally unable to ignore a dozen of the lad's schoolmates informing them of comments said delinquent had made in school. "Investigators" finally, well there was an election, were able to complete the difficult task of locating said delinquent's home address, and went to the pisspot's house, where they found a new GREEN tractor.
    Amazingly, "Investigators" determined said GREEN tractor wasn't a John Deer, and impounded said tractor.
    No comments will be made regarding this case in the near future. There seems to be a theory of the crime that goes along the lines that the culprits intended to use the tractor, and felt nobody would notice a new GREEN John Deer.
    It's nice to see a father and his son cooperating on a tractor project.

    Franz,

    Good for you on the recovery of the now green kubota. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]. But it's better than a kick in the teeth I guess [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Now that it's got the green paint on her and all that the poor things been through what do you get for her in money? Just curious!

    oh...and pictures please when you get a chance...that would be a sight to see...a green kubota.

    Seriously though, sounds like pretty good news overall. Maybe insurance will pay for a new paint job?

    Glad they got it back. I remember about a decade ago, a local government body bought several kubota tractors and then paid several thousand dollars to have them painted green so that no one would no they bought non American tractors.

    Franz,

    Very glad to hear that it was recovered.

    Sound's like the a combination of the Keystone cops and the Sherriff from "Smokey and the Bandit" were on your side! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
