Got me too!

Monday night, cut the fence to the yard at the rear, pryed the door lock mechanism off of the side door of the trailer.
Stolen: 4 Shindawai 261 weed whips
5 Redmax 7001 backpack blowers
1 Shindawai 261 stick edger, and the toolbox to boot.


Be as careful as you can and hope for the best. They are at it strong here in Michigan.

Guess it's time for you guys to start camping out in your trailers a few nights a week. Shouldn't take more than 3 incidents of thieves getting a bullet in their head when they open the door to either get rid of the ones that were doing it, or make the other ones think about it before trying it.

God man that sucks. Was it all insured?

There's almost nothing you can do. If someone wants something bad enough you know? I hope you're able to find a good alternative for locking your stuff up. Good luck.

Yes, insured but they depreciate the value. Not an actual replacement check. I have the hassle of providing receipts and serial numbers in order to collect probably less than half. Now the guys unload the trailer every night and load it again every morning. Trailer is kept unlocked and empty. Kinda sucks having to do that to an enclosed trailer. As you know it is always something.
