Stolen Cub

Postby radioguy41 » Fri Oct 12, 2018 7:46 pm

I was just made aware of a neighbor's Cub being stolen. It's an early model and has good red paint, is missing the grille and the right side headlight bulb was removed. The battery had been removed. When stolen it had a belly mower attached. I'm waiting to hear back on whether they have a record of the serial number. If they can find it I'll post it. They parked it next to the barn to fix the headlight and check a radiator leak and when they went over to the barn this morning it was gone. It was a family heirloom and they're broken hearted.

What thug would want to steal a nice antique tractor? I can't think of any thief with enough class to want one. So sorry to hear about the loss. They better get the word out to as many equipment dealers and pawn shops as possible. Whoever it is may try to sell it. I hope it is found soon. Sure makes me mad people do this kind of thing.
If a sharp rap with your hammer doesn't work, you know it's an electrical problem! :lol:

check the scrap yards, sleaze balls will sell anything for a few pennies of what it might be worth and many scrap guys do not ask questions of where it came from

I was also thinking that the junk yards needs to be check. Druggies will sell any metal to get their next fix. Also, ask around the neighborhood to see if anyone seen the tractor being towed, haul, or moved - there's a possibility that someone may have seen it being hauled away and could identify the tow/haul vehicle. They ain't moving it with a Chevrolet Spark or a Smart car, it's either a long bed truck or on a trailer.

Some neighbors might have video surveillance. Start checking for cameras on the roads leading away.

Also keep an eye on Craigslist. It'd be pretty easy to sell one there and around here there's always at least a couple of Cubs for sale there.

There's plenty of meth heads running around that are always looking for something to steal and sell cheap. Guy down the road from us had his central ac unit go missing from behind his house with it running when he left for work that day. And I've had some old junk go missing out of the barn myself. I keep my Cub locked up in the shop when I'm not using it.

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.

Our local scrapyard got shut down for that kind of thing.
