    This topic has been discussed many times but never gets old. Sorry to hear it! It is something you have to be aware of every minute...............really.....every minute. It is a shame. From time to time I may go out solo and service a yard or two and the hardest part of the entire job is keeping an eye on the trailer when I'm in the back yard. everything is locked down but still I don't like it out of site. When we have two or more on a job site we never all go in the back together. We always leave someone out front. Shouldn't have to be this way!!!!!!!!!!

    I had my trailer taken right out of my driveway about 3 years ago. Thank God I didn't have any equipment in it. But it was a $900 trailer.

    It really sucks when you are running at a good pace and then you have to stop to keep makeing sure that the trailer and equipment is being watched. Some of m lawns we end up in back together and I get so worried.

    Everyone gets what they give three-fold... The idiot who stole your equipment will pay eventually. Hope it never happens again.

    that sucks about your equipment bro. we are constantly having to lock up around the house because of some break - ins around the neighborhood within the last few years. why cant people buy their own s%*t!

    i was cutting my buddies yard yesterday, and his bobcat was sitting on a trailor in the middle of his side yard. i unhooked my trailor and moved his bobcat around to the back corner of his lot! LOL! the bad part is that he hasnt called me yet .... do you think he found it???

    Shep :p

    sorry to hear about the theft.
    makes it hard to keep a good attitude sometimes.
    if there is any way to get the redmax 7001 get it.
    there is a huge difference in output and no difference in price.
