    Just heard about a stolen skid steer and wondered if anyone else has some stolen equipment stories.

    Well back in 93 I had several trimmers and blower stolen. It was financed, the insurance from the loan took care of most of it. Went and financed some more, got stolen the next day. I just paid for it, the insurance company would have never believed that one.

    My trailer was stolen out of a secured lot 2 years ago. I've had plenty of stuff stolen, but those stand out.

    Weedeater 5 years ago

    Gas can 4 years ago.
    Come-Along 4 years ago.

    Another gas can last year.

    Knock on wood, I haven't been "hit" worse than this.

    I had my 24' enclosed trailer broke into and they took 2 T27's about 6 years old, a new Shindaiwa Chain saw, a 2 cycle cultivator, and a 2 cycle hedge trimmer, but left a lot of other good stuff. I guess something scared them off.

    Nothing stolen here except when working for someone else I had my lunch bag with my cell phone init stolen from a Home Depot lot. Nothing from the trailer or truck. Including my workers cell that was next to my bag. Figured it was a bum who was hungry.

    Alto I'm sure a LCO figures someone stole a 2.5 gal gas can from thier trailer. Was unloading one day and saw a brand new 2.5 can fly outta a unmarked trailer into my drive. So of cource I ran out and picked it up. Couldnt tell if it was mixed so I dumped it and replaced mine.

    Had my car stolen from an Atlantic City hotel valet parking last weekend. Ruined my vacation and then they "could not lose revenue just because they LOST my car" and asked me to pay for my room from the night before.

    Will tell you more details and the name of the hotel if they dont soon pony up some OPPS we screwed up money.
