    You are the second one from Ohio that got hit today. This is sad and I have had some of my stuff ripped off, it's not a good thing at all. Sorry to hear this.

    Who here would like to just catch someone steling equipment? I would, I would love to see them hauled off to jail and even worse.

    About a month ago I did catch someone stealing my equipment. I was driving down the highway kinda fast because I was late for school and I saw my trailer with what appeared to be most of my equipment. I called the police on my cell phone and they pulled him over, guns drawn and everything. When I got out I realized it wasn't my equipment, but the trailer was mine. I thought I was never going to see my dixie or toro walkbehind again. But it turned out the guy bought it off his friend and had all my mowers at his house, he even had a receipt for it all. So I got my trailer and my equipment back. Good thing I was running a little late. I now know it doesn't matter how secure your stuff is, if they want it they will find a way to get it.

    This is a good lesson for you guys still using pickup trucks. Get 3/4 or 1ton vans and alarm them. For your mowers, go with enclosed trailers as soon as you can. Russ

    I was wondering if the trimmer racks and blower racks are worth it? I am talking for security purposes. Can they take the weedeaters and blowers right off the racks even if their locked?
