    It's sad he has to pay someone to return it too... especially that much.

    The robber definitely has some good taste. Thank God nobody got killed.

    I just heard of the same thing here, in fact I made a thread about it, something like "Lawn Care guy lost his rig at gun point". Herd this from an insurance agent here in INDY.

    I think I would have left the blades on and ran him down at a full 12 MPH.

    I wonder how the robber got away? Did he load it on a trailer? Hard to believe.

    Well I doubt the theif drove off on this thing...that'd be quite the police pursuit! Top speed of 12mph isn't going to get him very far.

    It seems the owner of the mower would have had time to react if he watched the guy drive it onto a trailer etc. At least go after him with a string trimmer:laugh:

    Well the thief did have a gun so going after him with a string trimmer isn't going to do much. You'd have to go after him with the leaf blower first to blow the gun out of his hands. Then you can take the string trimmer to him.
