I hate to see this happen so often, but you guys have to start locking up your equipment. You might as well leave a pile of cash laying around too. This equipment is so hard to track and recover because it is all the same. Line 100 RedMax blowers up and stand 100 feet away and pick out yours...lol I have in place a company policy that states an employee must be in direct line of site of the rig at all times unless both the truck is locked and all locks are on the trailer. If they fail to do this and something gets stolen, it comes out of their pay. I have not had to do this yet, so it must be effective.

I would guess he means those pop up flea markets that show up in empty lots. They usually have lots of commercial equipment.
