    I used a trailer hitch lock - you don't want it too tight as it's a pivot point.

    If they can get the bolts loose with hand tools they can have my pump. I had pump rebuilt and put new bolts and arm on it.
    Then I took the arc welder and put a bead around the far end of the bolts. You can still tighten the bolt but you would have to use an air cut off etc to get the pump bolts off to steal it.
    And what are the chances you could get a lock to work after very long on the front of a plow truck?

    and what about the 4 bolts that hold the pump frame to the frame extension rails?

    If they want to steal it that bad, there's always a way (ie TORCH)

    If anyone wants somthing bad enough they will get it...I am just trying to slow them down and protect the investment.,..As for the frame I have no problem using simple hitch pin locks...
