    When I first read the title, I thought oh shoot, thousands of dollars in equipment stolen.


    Then afterwards, that isn't even equal to one model that we have. Quick check came up with >160 serial numbered items on display at the shop. All Stihl.

    Their loss likely is a greater percentage and would hit them harder though. :(

    $1500 to $1800 retail? That's enough to hurt anybody. Sorry to hear it. Means we are all going to have to pay more because of shoplifters and thieves.

    Actually this wasnt even 5 percent of our showroom inventory but it was enough to cause a dent in the minimal profits that we make selling new equipment.

    Maybe the thief will send in the warranty card in case they need some work.
