the best thing i have seen to keep a tractor where you park it if you must keep it outside, while nothing is completly safe if they want it bad enough, this will make them work for it, and long enough so that they'[ll look for an easeir tractor to take, get 10 foot of 8 inch drill pipe, and burry it 4 feet in the ground, in concrete, then fill the pipe with concrete also this defeats most attempts to cut the pipe, get enough 3/8ths t-5 grade transport chain to go thru both rear wheels and wrap around the tractor chassis,and the drill pipe, this chain is not the stuff down at the hardware store, this chain is used by truckers to secure heavy equipment to a trailer, its some tough stuff, bolt cutters wont cut it, you might grind thru it but most common theifs [ drug addicts] arnt carrying a grinder and the generator to run it with them, and nobody has a jack to lift the whole tractor over 6 feet in the air to get it free of the pipe, , you just back up to the pipe and use the chain to secure the tractor, it will probably be there when you come back

Sorry, but even that won't stop the determined & knowledgeable thief. A battery powered Dremel will set that tractor free. Don't spend so much effort trying to stop it, insurance covers it.
