Think about how a woman looks who needs a tractor to be picked up.

Be careful of women riding on tractors...

most crews do leave the keys in them because the keys aren't all that different. My dad sold Caterpillar machines and kept a box of "keys" with him in case one of his customer lost one. Funny thing was is that they were all the same. It's kind of like if you lose a key to a four wheeler. Shove a flat head screw driver turn and presto it will start. You could pretty much do that with heavy equipment. Keys are not so much for security but safety to act as an on and off switch.

Yep.  John Deere farm tractors used to be that way.  Don't know if they still are.

CSB time:  Back when they were first putting underground phone cable where I lived (1:  I'm old.  2:  Way out in the boonies), the crew left a John Deer trencher in front of my house.  Country road, a dead end, in fact.  Only a few houses on the road.  A friend of mine who was a farm kid came over.  I told him my dad (who worked at a Deere dealership) had a box of keys.  Between the two of us, two 12-year-old boys fired that beast up, and moved it a quarter mile down the road.  Sure, we could have torn shiat up, but we were devious.  We just wanted to watch the guys show up the next day and wonder why the hell the trencher wasn't where they left it.

As someone who drunkenly climbed into the driver's seat of a front end loader (seriously, who leaves one parked outside of a bar in a college town?!) I can tell you that the keys were most definitely in it. Thankfully I wasn't stupid enough to start it up.

Related CSB:
When I was a teenager, a buddy of mine and I went into a construction yard not far from our houses.  We went into one of the dumptrucks.  On a whim, I opened the visor, and a coffee cup with the keys fell out.  So, I started it up and went for a joyride around the lot.  Oddly enough, that thing drove pretty good!
When we were done, I parked it 3/4 the way up a pile gravel and put the keys back where I found them.

I'm sure the workers got reamed a new asshole for that one!!

I was playing a gig one evening in City Market (outdoors of course) here in Savannah.  There was a big crowd in front of the band dancing.

The city had left a street sweeper parked around the corner.  Suddenly we see some dude swing that sucker right into the middle of the dancing crowd.  Everyone parted as he circled around the dance area, with the cleaning brushes going wide open throttle.

Then the cops came and took him away to jail.

I don't know much about tractors, but to get one for $12K that will seat three adults seems like a bargain to me.

One lazy Saturday, my dad and I were walking past a construction site with a bunch of heavy equipment.  My dad climbed up in one of the machines, poked around at the controls, and started up the engine.  "Oh, shiat!  How do I turn it off?"  He couldn't figure it out so we ran away, leaving it running.  Good times.

Well, if they're a couple of fatties, yeah, it's perfect.

Dayton police spotted the red Toro Workmaster in an alley south of Third Street around 4:30 p.m. the same day.

Uh, no Lou. We're looking for a stolen tractor. Another mistake like that and I'll bust you down to sergeant.

Yep, virtually every machine within the respective manufacturers lineup uses the same key...and most of them haven't changed key designs in decades, so you could use the same key to start a 2014 model Cat dozer and a 1970 model Cat dozer.

At a buddy's wedding (also in Dayton no less) my friends and I once took a similar work buggy for a joyride, all of us in tuxes. One of us got launched out the side and landed on the remains of the wedding cake. Facility staff had called the po-po on us. The Dayton cops were somehow persuaded to let us go with stern warnings.

This fellow was obviously not dressed to the nines, might have gone smoother.
