They have them everywhere. In one night in my home town they got a friends trimmers and blowers. Oh and they walked right past his patrol car to get them. Went to his neighbors and stole his trailer with his 1 year old JD 757 on it. In a neighboring town they stole 2 Dixiechoppers from a dealer and then drove to an Exmark dealer down the street and got 2 new and 1 used Exmark mowers.That might explain why some of these folks mow 3/4 acre lawns for 30 bucks. They have no overhead!!!

It's happening here too. They got a guy's truck and trailer with a JD Zero Turn while he was in a restaurant here. Even took his dog that was in the cab! They found his truck and his dog a few miles away, I don't think they ever got his equipment back though. I guess he needs a meaner dog....

It wasn't recently but our local JD dealer had a truck and trailer loaded with zt mowers stolen. They ended up finding the truck and trailer but not the mowers. Its a shame that you can't anything anymore or trust anyone for the fear of having what you worked for taken away from you
