I went to mow with my Sears 16/6 twin and someone stole the deck belt off of it. My only garden tractor with a deck so now I got to wait until I can afford to buy a belt before I can mow again

That's not cool! Maybe you need my Security System! If the 2 large Rots don't get you, one of the flying bullets will!

What the heck.Hmmmmm.Thief should be pretty easy to track down.Who else has a Suburban around there and knows you had one to?

 

Someone stole the a junk 230cca Harris mower battery out of the 16/6 I was working on 2 days ago.Was going to take it in as a core.

 

Funny thing it was junk and not 4 feet from it was a new 1200cca deep cycle battery just sitting in the big Gravely 430 (hood not bolted down yet either). 

 

If I catch one up there I'll crack a shot off in the air.I got a few old paper 12g slugs that I'm trying to get rid of.I Pop the slug out and keep the wad.They throw fire and smoke and crack pretty good.I must have 500 of them stuffed in 2 old sealed metal ammo boxes.Some old deer slugs but mostly old hollow point police rounds.

 

Inherited them from my grandpap when I was 17 along with an old ithaca model 37 8 shot Police special 12g shotgun.Just the sound of the slide might chase them off.She has a nice crisp clack clack sound that will make your hair stand up on end.

A neighbor of mine had all the belts stolen off his mower. I didn't believe him at first.

No one ever steel from someone when the victim is home or a chance they can spot the thief.  I like the sing on the shop door.  "If you hear the shot you know I missed - - that time"

You know it would be terrible if a power cord was frayed and got left laying on the deck of the Sears.......

The one liked said If you heard the shot I am checking for range.

I have a homemade garbage can made out of a blue plastic 55 gal drum cut in half with oblong hand holes cut in the sides. (I know exactly what it looks like.) Someone stole it from in front of my house. A few weeks later I saw it a couple of blocks away, full of garbage. I dumped the stuff out of it, took it home and spray painted my name on it. Some people will steal anything.

As the mentality that every body owes you grows, the small items will disappear quicker. Pawn shops are well stocked with small things.

I guess my patent pending cooper yard alarm keeps my stuff from being walked off with.

If that fails out comes the shovel...

Here's cooper the Great Dane. Using Canada gravity...
