one of our local auctioneers requires proof of ownership for a tractor either a title or a reciept or you pay for him to have the authorities run its serial numbers to see if it is hot. I dont know if he got burned once or he just wants to protect his reputation but it seems like a good idea to me. I am sure there is a data bank of stolen tractors probably compiled by insurance companies . Most banks probably would require an origin check before they would give a loan. One way to protect yourself would be to title all your tractors with your state dmv at least it would be in the system if anything happened. Also write down all your serial numbers and take pictures of your machines and store them in a safe place its to late to do it once its been stolen. Happy Holidays T.J.

The only problem with haveing to register with state DMV , it just gives the government another hold on us. Everyone just needs to keep there serial no. kept in a safe place and if there is a thieft, post on this site. We don't need the government to regulate our tractors. The next thing, they would decide that we needed to have safety inspections, catalytic converters, might not pass if tread is a little thin. Dave.

Here, Here, I agree. Keep the governmants away from the tractors!!! I am from Canada where we are still trying to fight the gun registry thing. The last thing we need is to register our tractors. Government registry doesn't help with any illegal activity. Cars have been register for decades yet there is still car theift. Matter of fact there are a lot of people that have got rich making alarms.

Use common sense, keep track of your serial numbers, and store them in a secure place.

And yes post your serial # here if your tractor gets stollen and if anyone finds it they should tell you and contact the authorities (beating the thief comes to mind too, but you had better just call the authorities)

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
