I hope a lot of people act as lookouts on their local craigslists, ebay, etc. I hope these guys rot in jail for this! Great job of listing serials and vin numbers, etc.

Good luck on getting those precious items back and keep us posted!

If anyone in the memphis, tn area sees a wright stander 42" with a black mower deck or a worldlawn 28" with 11hp honda please let me know. I have never seen one of these mowers on any rig. Thanks

Here is a google link, that will search all of craigslist for all adds within the past week containing "dixie and mower". Since craiglist doesn't only lets you search one county at a time, this link will search the entire site.

They only built a few of these mowers and of the ones they did build there's even less of them left alive. It should stick out like a sore thumb.

I add just posted on miami craigslist.

The ad is gone. See what happens when you steal something that unique and then try to sell it on a national forum (CL). They might as well have stolen the Hope Diamond and then tried to sell it on Ebay.

That's a different mower. I've still got the old posting open (I haven't refreshed it yet) and the deck was silver and the Dixie stickers on the sides were almost brown & the seat was tan.

Thanks everyone for helping us keep an eye out for my stolen equipment. Our small little town here in Western Kentucky had 7 mowers and 7 trailers stolen in 2 weeks. We are hopeful that something will show up...or at least the theives will be caught.
