    Well it happened to me today... My brand new 09 ferris 52" walk behind that i bought at the beginning of the season, and also my rental unit which was an 08 toro grandstande with the 52" deck. They also stole my buddies stihl 110 km kobi unit and also my redmax back pack blower. They took the stuff between 2-4 p.m. yesterday afternoon. I know they are probably long gone but figured i would let you guys know about it. The people that stole it were driving a Maroon 1500 long bed with a black open trailer 14-16' according to a neighbor. I'm located in O'Fallon, IL. If you guys can just keep a look out round the area I'm in I would appreciate it. I

    Let the local and regional dealers know too. Sooner or later your stuff will show up in a shop...I really hate thieves. Was the stuff on a trailer or stored somewhere?

    Where is Ofallen, Ill?

    my stuff was stored in a double garage/ shop. They kicked the side door in and popped the garage open. It happened between 2-4 p.m. I already notified dealers. Problem is that majority companies round here fun ferris walk behinds.
