Top Ten Reasons Farm Trucks Aren’t Stolen


#10 They have about 20 miles before they overheat, breakdown or run out of fuel.

#9 Only the owner knows how to operate the door to get in or out.

#8 It is difficult to drive fast with all the fenceing tools, grease guns, ropes, chains, syringes, buckets, boots and loose papers in the cab.

#7 It takes too long to start, and the smoke coming up through the rusted-out floor clouds your vision.

#6 The Border Collie in the back looks mean.

#5 They’re too easy to spot. The description might go something like this: The driver’s side door is red, the passenger side door is green, the right front fender is yellow, etc.

#4 The large round bale in the back makes it hard to see if you’re being chased. You could use the mirrors if they weren’t cracked and covered with duct tape and cow manure.

#3 Top speed is approximately 45 mph.

#2 Who wants to steal a truck that needs a year’s worth of maintenance, u- joints, $3,000 in body work, tail-lights and windshield?

#1 It is hard to commit a crime with everyone waving at you

  1. Yes, we can relate…we actually drove one through San Francisco to the Cow Palace. In the second attempt to San Francisco the next year, the truck ended up on its side at Murray Rd in McKinleyville with pigs scattering on the highway. Thanks to FFAers and 4Hers just out of school for rounding them up and motel owner on the corner for allowing pigs in his backyard while another truck was located for the trip. That truck looked great but had to be filled about every gas station from here to there…3 miles per gallon…expensive trip, but a memory not forgotten.

  2. I can honestly say I can agree with many of Top Ten Reasons Farm Trucks Aren’t Stolen. I had to laugh at most and agree with many of them. I love being on the farm! I even started a website so people can find their perfect property. I think everyone should live on a farm once in their lifetime, especially if you are raising kids! If your looking stop by, its free! I hope you find the perfect farm!!
