    I never look at this forum, but clearly I'm not the only one that has had a recent theft!! We had gotten a new kubota svl 75 about this time last year and I got the dreaded call at 7 am this morning that she was missing. I wish they had taken the truck that was parked right I front of it. Everything has gps except this machine. We all have or should have insurance so the machine is covered but what really bothers me is I have know clue who did it. I could have waved or talked with the thief and don't have a clue, and that burns me up. O well, we were fortunate to have it and we will now get a new one. Good luck to everyone in finding your stuff.

    Ill keep an eye out B. looks like I need to unload the trailers and put equipment in my warehouse.

    It's got me on edge, since our shops are just down the road from each other. Any leads?

    No leads, no clues. JP is worthless and they only care about news worthy crimes. Our next door neighbor has a camera on the back of the building and no one passed that way so I'll check some businesses on peters road tom and see what happens. Not going to spend a lot of time, gotta keep moving forward. I let it bother me a few years ago when we got hit, you can only lock it up and protect so much. I don't think like a thief or drug junky so I won't get it. I just do the best we can.

    I would be notifying kubota because if it ever goes into the shop it will turn up.

    Oh and if it is financed through kubota then you are covered too.

    Well, got the call today. My beloved kubota was found!! Almost exactly half way between home and the office, in the woods. Almost 100% intact. The bucket is gone but beyond that put the key in and on the trailer she went. I'm one of the lucky ones!!
