    I was driving around today and noticed a big lawn care company with like 5 or 6 lawn care trucks and trailers just leaves them outside at his shop. They leave the equipment on it too. Next to the main road. I don't get how they don't get stolen? That's just stupid.

    Might have a bunch of wild dog's roaming around.
    That will deter thieves.

    I leave my equipment loaded on my trailers in the summer.Trailer gates lock racks lock front basket locks. And your on camera. Lol Some times I leave a trailer loaded without a truck. I normally lock the trailer with a trailer lock. Never had anything stolen. If that day every comes my insurance company will get a call.

    Maybe the property is mined. Are you talking about Ka-Boom lawn care?

    My enclosed trailers stay out but have locks on doors, tongue and a wheel lock. All other trailers/equipment are in a locked warehouse. Not to many problems with theives in my area but I don't want to be that guy.
