doors locks arent worth hassle as surely if they want whats in cab they will just break window? If its ignition, then an immobiliser is better or are you looking at keyless entry and tracking who drives what etc...
 
We have immobiliser in everything need to put in the code before even the ignition comes on, apparently (dont have it yet) my new t8 has a keyfod to lock the door like a car an they say it does the immobiliser but a code also has to be typed in on the screen before it will start 🤷‍♂️ Just what i have been told by the fitter getting it ready seems like a good idea if that is correct. Dont get why they cant have keys like a car

Best solution is a battery isolater you can take the key out of, unique enough and cheap.

I found these & like the look of them

But that only needs a spanner or a jump lead to get going, will only stop the opportunity thiefs not the ones out to get them to sell on unfortunately

Is not a tracker a better idea, I have never locked a tractor at home would sooner they stole the tools in it than break the glass and then steal the tools

it still shocks me that with a key off ebay i can drive off in my mates 140k tractor but my 1k old pickup has a built in immobiliser!!
The ghost ones are fantastic,had a customer drop his fiesta st in for mot with instructions on how to start it and i still couldn't get it going,had to ring him
Had to press the drivers window down for 5 seconds (exactly 5 which is where i went wrong) then the right indicator then the left indicator then it would start!!
