    If anyone in the area or on ebay could keep an eye open for me. It was a Stihl BR420 serial number 251569552. I haven't used it since before christmas so i am assuming that's when it was stolen, that and there are tracks leaving my driveway (they went wide turning out) that weren't there on the day of christmas eve. wife said she didn't do it and upon closer inspection, they don't match any of our tires.

    anyway, if everyone could keep an eye open for me please do.

    also if you come across it, or the person with it, please call me, 901-258-2259


    i am in memphis, tn. they aparently used bolt cutter to cut the locks off my rack and trimmer trap but for whatever reason, left my trimmer and stick edger alone.


    if ever so often someone could TTT it for me for a few days please, thanks.

    it was locked on the rack in behind my garage on the trailer. they cased it alright, found tire tracks in the drive on christmas morning that weren't ours and friday night someone tried to steal my neighbors truck.

    very true


    the first mower i bought when i took over here was taken a few trimmers and a giant vac leaf blower.they stole a small box truck from a truck dealer near by and rammed one of my shop doors with it .they got away and tried the same thing a few weeks later at an equipment dealer.they stole 2 lawn tractors still in the crates and a few other things.they got about 6 miles down the road before the police caught up with them.they tossed out the mowers at the cop chasing them hopping for him to back off.they lost control of the truck,crashed and ran off.they never got caught
