Default 27 Keys Set Construction Equipment Master Keys

Just found this on Amazon might be worth the $18.00 to keep in the truck box. Never know when you might have to move a piece of equipment.

My understanding is cat and deere have switched to individual keys in the last ten years or so. It may be worth checking if the other brands still use a single key as well.

They still have master keys.
Most tractor brands have master keys that cover several models. When my friend lost his 2 month old Kubota key, I let him use my master.

A lot of the expensive equipment has GPS location equipment in it. If you drive it away, they will find you.

We had a politician down in Miami who bought himself some property up in North Florida. He thought nothing of having a big CAT tractor moved from the City motor pool garage up to his property to do some work. No GPS back then, but someone followed it way up there and took 8 x 10 glossy B&W pictures.

Keys - I don't need no stinking keys. Locks only keep honest people honest for the most part. I was about 8 when I figured out how to hot wire the tractor. If you know which 2 wires in the bundle to connect the TA-312 field phone, you can launch a HAWK missile by cranking the magneto.

Yeah, but this isn't meant for now. This is about prepping for eventualities. This is for a potential TEOTWAWKI event, and I'm sure there wouldn't be any GPS tracking at that point.

I think there will be a lot more older equipment than new out there though.

I still can't believe how many people buying the older military vehicles haven't changed out the ignition switch. It was the first thing I did.

For what it is worth, I have been told lots of fire trucks don't need keys so no one has to find them whenever they get a call.

True of standard fire truck (other than a converted pickup/van). In NYC/big city they may have ignition keys. FDNY has locks on every compartment of a fire truck. If not, the usual suspects strip the truck bare as it slows below 50mph.

Most DOD vehicles don't have a key switch. The old CUCV pickups/blazers are the only vehicles I can think of that had key ignition. Std "security" is a log chain w/padlock thru the steering wheel. HMMWV has a steel cable (as big bicycle type) built in for the purpose.

Yeah, the M1008/1009 are the ones I was thinking of. I see them everywhere around here. I changed mine immediately,

I remember when I could start almost any tractor with the "Indac" key from the kid's snowmobile. LOL.

YOU THINK that is interesting...
there was a time in the late 50 into the 60s when you could use your GM trunk key to open and start a number of Beechcraft airplanes.
My dad had a D50 (twin Bonanza)for his business and the pilot used to use his car keys all the time.
