stolen blower

Hey guys just a little heads up.........My enclosed trailer got broken into last weekend, didn't notice it until Tuesday when I went to go out mowing. I keep the trailer backed up to the gate in my fence at the house. This low life opened the gate to the yard, cut the lock on my drop down gate and went in the trailer.........climbing over my 2 mowers to the front of my trailer and stole my redmax 8050 backpack blower. He then put the gate back up, and closed the gate to the yard. He didn't take anything else, no weedwhackers, hedge trimmers nothing.......just the blower WTF! So it sounds like someone had been watching me, and knew exactly what they wanted. This happened in West Warwick RI..........Just be aware there are lowlifes out there that can't do the right thing and bust their asses, but have to steal from good hardworking people!.............that's my rant lol

Hey Ferris,

Sorry to hear that man. People are scumbags and have no respect for others and hopefully they get what's coming to them. No matter how hard you try people will always figure out a way to steal if they really want it.


Welcome Tony!
What's the name of your company in Warwick?
The pesticide class is expensive and a complete waste of time. You don't learn much that actually applies to landscapers or anything you will be doing....BUTTTTT you should definitely go cause its the law and the DEM is out there checking our paperwork and it's still worth it to get the license to make yourself more legit. Plus sometimes customers ask to see you. You just never know.

I agree with Irish, it was a complete waste of time and they really don't teach anything in the way of identification and treatment procedures. However, the fine for not having the license, insurance, posting after applications and keeping up the paperwork is just over $8,500.00......that was directly out of the mouth of Robin Mooney who issues the licenses.......do the right thing and go legit!
