Why a hammer?

In the picture at the top of the page, why is there a hammer laying on the snowblower?

Good eye! I noticed that myself a while back, but never ventured to mention something about it.
Don't know how that happens to be there, but it does't bother me.

It is because it is an Ariens snow blower and everyone tries to steal it and you need the hammer to defend it.

I just mounted a machine gun on mine.

Wow, I never noticed that before. I always saw it up there and automatically thought it was a cleanout brush. After reading this thread and taking a close look it does look like a hammer.

The drafter could not find a picture of a clean out brush to use.

The hammer was close and as long as no one looked close, it would, and did pass for a long while.

I guess that makes djturnz the all too observant "no one".
