    So there I was at Sears last Saturday working my part time job. I came in at 11am and my dept manager was on the phne with an unhappy customer. When she finished I asked here what was going on. She said that the customer was supposed to have a riding mower delivered that morning but it was still locked up outside. Apparently someone put a lock on it that didn't have a key. So then she says that others have been trying for the last 3 hours to get this lock off :rolleyes: I asked what they were using and she said whatever they could find. I asked her if she would like me to get the lock off and she said if I think I can then have at it. I walk over to the grinders that are on display and grab the makita with the grinding disc and head outside. The poor Master padlock never stood a chance. I was back in the store putting it back on the shelf within a minute or 2. I handed my manager the lock and smiled. It got me an extra $10 pay for that hour or 2 minutes :D
    They ones trying to get the lock off were using either bolt cutters or some type of saw

    Nah, probably several guys holding a table saw upside down and one guy triggering the switch while guiding the others up or down to the padlock. :haha: :haha: :haha:

    I think they would have tried that except for the saw wouldn't reach down to the recessed area..you know where they hitch is on the back of a riding mower

    A drill works also. Drill through where the key goes and pop goes the lock.
