So I show up at a house today ready to trim some hedges. My brand new Stihl FS90R with HL135 gearbox was in my trailer with my blower and string trimmers. I did a walk around the house, back to the truck, 10 minutes later(!) and Im short the hedge trimmer system! So I left, called the customer and told her I couldnt do the job today. I look on Craigslist for a trimmer so I could do the job (and get paid so I could buy a new setup) and posted about 10 minutes before I checked, was a "Stihl FS90R Hedge Trimmer" and he was asking $300. I knew right then it was mine, so I start a plan. I called, offered him $200 and agreed on $250. I tell him to meet behind K-Mart. I called one of my friends who is 6'8" and north of 300lbs. He brought along his friend Mr. Glock. I head off to K-Mart in my truck and trailer (the one that the trimmer was stolen out of). I see a pickup truck backed up against the wall, so I assumed it was him. I block him in with my truck. Me and my friend jump out of our truck, he jumps out of his. I asked to see it, and he pulls MY TRIMMER out of the back of his truck. At this point, I dont think this kid realized that he stole it out of the trailer that was now blocking his exit. I ask him to start it for me. Now, if anyone owns a FS90R, they know theres a starting sequence. He couldnt get it started. I grab it, look at him, pointed at my trailer, and said "Thats the truck you stole this out of this morning." and his face turns. I tell him "Either I take this and you leave under your own power, or we beat the living sh!t out of you, take the trimmer, and have the police pick you up in an ambulance." He backs off and says "Its yours man. I dont want any trouble!" Part of me wishes he wouldve resisted so we couldve kicked his a$$, and part of me still wishes I wouldve called the police after I got my trimmer back, but Im just glad I got it back. And that's my story!
