I just had my first piece of equipment stolen today. It was a $400 Toro variable speed push mower that, to date, was the best 21" I've ever had. I had had it for about 1 1/2 yrs. and used it on almost all of my jobs. I was finishing up a doctor's resident that I had only mowed twice and had strapped my mower down to the trailer with a rubber bunji I've always used(I'm buying cables and tying everything to my trailer tomorrow including my ZTR) I was hot from push mowing and jumped in the truck and drove up the street to a convenient store. When I got out, I noticed it was gone and I thought it had fallen off the trailer. I hauled back to the subdivision looking on both sides of the road and I met this truck and looked in my rear view mirror and saw the mower in the back(I'm almost certain it was mine). I made a U turn with my trailer in the road and floored it to catch up but he was gone. I was pissed. Ironically, my father just installed a security system in their house and made the comment just yesterday that times are tough and people are going to get desperate and her I am-no mower. I bust it working two jobs to support wife and kids and this happens.
