    Came to work today to find that someone broke into our enclosed trailer and cleaned it out. Over $20k worth of equipment gone!!!! :angry:

    To top it off.... they ended up replacing the lock with one of their own!!! And didn't even have the decency to leave a KEY! :realmad:

    This pisses me off so bad!! The crime lab couldn't even manage to lift any usable prints or anything! The nerve of some people!! I will be replacing the equipment today or in the morning, but just another day lost to idiots!!! :angry:

    Sorry to hear that. Hopefully you have insurance. Bright side is you will get some new gear!

    Sorry to hear about that! Hopefully you have ser. #'s etc. Not much hope to recover but every now and then I would recover stuff over the NCIC by serial #.

    Sorry to hear that. Theft on Lawn and Landscape equipment is huge nowadays. We work hard for our equipment and then somebody just takes it like its a promotional offer.

    Unreal! I hope you get it back.
    Did you have any of the equipment marked with some sort of engraved ID?

    Watch Ebay like a hawk for any equipment in your area...
