Well it finally happened. Some low life stole my one year old Shindaiwa hand held eb240 blower and 5 gallons of gas. Everything else was locked up on the trailer. This happened at the entrance of an upscale development. My blower was sitting in the bed of my truck. This is a lawn that the truck is out of our sight for about 45 minutes. I bougt a new blower and cable locks for the gas cans and eb240. I'm thinking of setting a video camera on the back head rest in my crew cab to keep an eye on things.

Get rid of the cable and go with a chain...I used one of those to secure a brand new $800.00 Snapper 20" mower...the cable was cut with shears...switched to a chain, no more worries...and 45 minutes, sheesh...gotta lock em up, if not, you're advertising for a low life to make a visit...

Last thursday I had my cell phone and phone charger stolen out of my truck. Who the heck would steak a cell phone? Two hours later I had a new one and the old one shut off. I'm not sure exactly what job it got lifted at, but I had been in an area were cigarettes had been swiped out of my truck a couple years earlier. I assume it was just dumb kids.

Nothing worse than someone stealing tools from the workin' man. I am constantly reminding my staff to keep an eye on all equipment - we don't need anything to grow appendages!!!

That is sad but people will steal anything. The bad part to me is this wasn't a toy or something but the way you earn your livelihood. Not a good day for you at all but it will get better when you chain those items up.

I am glad I bought the trimmer racks and blower pole. I guess a hand held is a pain the --- to lock up. I would love to catch someone stealing. I would use all necessary means to make sure he don't do it again.

Sorry to hear about your loss, Bob. I have and heard of alot of others that had it worse.
