thieves tried

Found my trailer un hooked this morning. Guess they gave up when they found to way to get it. I'm on a hill so even rolling my truck would only put it in the only path out. The other direction your rear tires would come off the ground.

They did take my sthill back pack sprayer and half a can of gas. Bout 6 months back they cut the lock and stole my hand helds. Least the cheap ones. Left all the expensive stuff in place. So I started removing all that. And I'm backed up to a wall. So no droping the gate. You want a mower you take the whole rig.

Well I fancy my self as a steel fabricator. You screwed your one shot bubba. Take a torch to take it off the truck, or trailer out of the yard

They did that to me two years ago. Only one of the mowers was on the trailer, but they damn near got every freaking thing else. The truck was recovered 15 days later in an apartment complex in Crime Hills. Few dents, dings, scrapes, but otherwise in pretty good shape. The tailgate had a big dent/scrape like they unhooked the trailer on an incline and it got away from them. They seemed to load up everything they could out of the cab and ditched the truck as fast as they could. Nothing else was ever recovered as far as I know.

Yo

I hate to steal Fl-landscape's Thunder. But he is away this week end for a High School reunion only to have his Trailer broken into. I am not sure how much was taken but his brother reported all the small power tools were gone. Thieves cut a Chain Link Fence then cut the Frame around the pad lock instead of the Pad lock. Damage to the trailer means several days of lost work just to get it fixed. IMHO the Muslin countries have the Right Idea. You Steal Cut Off Your Right Hand and Left Foot.

And I was pissed about having a new weed wacker ripped off while I was working on a commercial property 2 weeks ago. Don't feel so bad now.
