    After servicing one of my larger clients i pulled into Mcdonalds for some lunch. A car pulled right in front of my truck and 2 teenage kids a little younger than me got out and stood by their car. I went inside, and was in line, they came in a minute or so later. I was waiting for my order and i noticed they kept looking over at me, I got my food, went to the drink machine, and when i turned around they were both outside. One was standing near the door, the other was making his way to my trailer. I walked out, they immediately turned around, and walked away. I know without a doubt they would have tried to grab a hand helds or gas jugs.

    Little bastids. I had 2 br600 bp blowers lifted at McDonald's. sent a guy there to pick up drinks for everyone since it was closer than a store and hotter than heck that day. He pulled in was the only person inside. So he wasn't there 5 minutes got back to car dealership we were ready to blow off lot and realize blowers were gone. So had to run and buy 2 so we could clean up lot. Went to McDonald's and a camera was pointing right where he parked but they wouldn't show me the film without police. Gave up figured I'd cut my losses and by the time I met deductibles wouldn't get much back and figured insurance rate would go up. I would like to catch em with their hands in my truck

    That had to have sucked. Believe me, if I saw them taking something, they would have regret it.

    Locking racks guys. I know its a small pita, but can you afford to lose anything when your busy. Cable locks for gas cans or greentouch racks. Save up for that enclosed. Thievery is at all time high.

    Have all locks but was in a hurry. Lesson learned. This year I got enclosed trailer so while we are working I know it's safe. Always keep it locked

    Locking racks are a great idea. But guess what? My equipment got stolen from a locking rack--the crooks cut the rack off the trailer.:dizzy:

    I've had blowers stolen also! You have to lock everything and one guy working in the front and one in the rear. I've heard of people working by themselves in the back of a home and come to the from to find the whole truck gone!!
