Hey guys ,this is my first post. Im very grateful for this supportive community of professionals we have and am proud to be able to come on here and learn from yall's experiences. Thank you. Now, to the heart of my post. Yesterday I was under a heavily overgrown shrub ( not sure of the type ) but the shrub was easily three times the size of my truck. At this point in time I had detached my trailer from my truck and was wrapping tow rope around the base of the shrub so I could rip it out with the truck. Keep In mind my trailer currently has a brand new scag ztr and a commercial grade push mower on it. This shrub was big enough to conceal me entirely from view, and what do I see when I come crawling out from underneath the shrub? Two pieces of crap attempting to hook my trailer up to their truck. I mean the nerve of these guys. Its the middle of the day and we are on the side of a major road. Needless to say I lost it and grabbed the palm tree trimming knife I had next to me and ran after them. Ive never seen someone move so fast, they were in their truck and wheels peeling; they left deap tread marks in the grass they peeled out so fast. The point of this post is to PLEASE never underestimate the guts and nerve of some of these thiefs. If that trailer was stolen I would've been out of 13,00$ worth of equipment. I mean I was less than 30 feet away from them and they tried hooking my gear up to their trailer and taking my stuff. Thankfully I had a tongue lock, which Im almost positive bought me enough time to realize what was happening and come at them. Please learn from my mistake, I don't want this happening to anyone.
