this has been talked about before, but it came to mind again when i had to go out to my storage container to get the serial # off my Demo Cub.
All of us consider our cubs (and other tractors) to be valuable, but if it was stolen, what would you tell the police? It was a RED Cub?
So, without going into a long dissertation,
Take pictures of your tractors from several angles.
Record the year, make, and serial number of each.
Record the engine serial number, and other casting numbers.
Mark your tractors somewhere hidden from normal viewing, especially if it is a restored piece you intend to keep.
Identify any special features and welds.
in short, anything that would help in recovering your property or proving to the authorities that it belongs to you.

Excellent advice that bears repeating
Ok.. it will be repeated -- How To Help The Police Identify Your Cub If It Was Stolen
Great idea Art, just a week or so ago we were told someone had been caught who was stealing trailers in our neighborhood. I didn't even know it was going on until it was over... I have many guns locked away and the serial numbers recorded but I have nothing on my cubs.
I'll be sure to change that as I go over them prepairing them for the Tug.

...don't forget sgtbull's excellent article as well;
Stolen tractors...a police viewpoint
Yup .. I think I had kind of forgotten that one. I have it bookmartked now.. Just gotta figure out which is the best section of the CBoK to put it into. Far more valuable there I think.. ..
I know a few guys in the 4 X 4 and ATV crowds how have a novel way of putting a identifying tag on there truck or ATV. They will pick a hollow tube on the frame, a grab bar, tube bumper, or something of the like. It has to be easily removable and have 1 end that can be easily opened. They open it and put a engraved tag with their name socal sec. number and date of birth in the tube, seal it up and put it back on. If stolen and recovered, it gives a LOT of evidence for you to tell the police, "OK remove the grab bar, and take off the end cap, and read the tag inside. " A person on a very large 4 X 4 website was tipped off his stolen truck was being sold on craigslist, and him having that helped with recovering it.

Good Idea but if the wrong person finds your SS number and birthdate they could end up with your identity. Anything you can identify to the police would make your case. Email addresses are unique too.
Better to use your state driver's license number, as mentioned in the article. Much easier for the police to track, and the number isn't all that useful to a thief.
