    Please be on the lookout for a practically new Snapper Utility vehicle (similar to the Gator by John Deere.) This piece of equipment was stolen from me this week along with two blowers and a Stihl Stick edger while we worked on the property. This took place in the Charlotte, NC area. Please contact me or the police should you have anyone try to sell you this equipment, especially the utility vehicle.

    hope that you can find him/her/they that take it.

    We have been lucky enough (knock on wood), that we have never had anything stolen.

    :( Sorry to hear that. I am picking up my new dog this weekend (Boxer). I am sending her to obedience training this winter and she'll be on the truck in the spring. I have been staulked by people who appear to be casing my equipment. I am putting her in the back of the truck for security. I will have to cover part of the bed but so be it. It beats getting my stuff taken. :angry:

    I havent had anything stolen yet, but reading some of the horror stories about stolen equipment on this site propted me to put locks on everything. Hitch, receiver, a couple of cable locks for everything else.

    I was one of those "Itll never happen to me" guys, until it did. Lost 2 BP blowers and a hedgetrimmer. Lucky for insurance, but it still is a rotten, sinking feeling.
