    Had a chainsaw and hedge trimmer taken off my tailgate. Was only away and out of sight in the backyard for less than 5 minutes.

    Sorry about that. No that doesn't feel good. Did you hear a vehicle pull up while you where away?

    I've had equipment stolen and can empathize. Five minutes, you say? An accomplished thief only needs 20 seconds, and targets people who don't lock up their stuff. I learned after the first time to always keep equipment locked no matter where I am. The only unlocked piece will be the one that I am currently using.

    Ive had 6 blowers and 1 line trimmer stolen from my trailer over a 2 year span. They were even locked! They used bolt cutters and cut locked the locks and took them. Thats why i got me an enclosed trailer now with some nice locks that you cant cut. My brother in law is a lock smith and got me some good locks. I feel your pain though.
