I am sorry about this happening. Did you contact the local media and tell them so they could make a story out of it and reach out to more people in your area.

Yes, actually the media contacted us.

I hope someone catches that a-hole! I'm sorry for your loss!

I'd contact every dealership around & ask them if they had bought used equipment (your equipment) or ANYTHING!

If this happened to me, I would go crazy! Like in the movie "Collateral Damage" where Schwarzenegger's family gets killed by a terrorist, he goes out hunting the terrorist down on his own!

if your truck was stolen too, the person might have been on foot, which maybe means he's not too far from where the truck was. Unless he was dropped off by a friend, etc... Anything is possible...

If there were any stores near by, ask them if they have surveillance tapes from the day your stuff was stolen..??

Dang, thats awful. If any of you out there have a trailer full of equipment, it may be a good idea to put a lo-jack on it just in case. I know this is what people with expensive show cars do and sometimes it really pays off.

Man I am sorry for your loss!!

As noted contact the dealers for these pieces of equipment and give them the serial number, I know at least with John Deere they have a central data base, if that piece of equipment comes in for service or at least here if you want a part you even have to give a serial number, and it comes up stolen, they have you. My local store has helped catch a few.

When you are back on the go, consider GPS chips for your expensive equipment, it's worth it's weight in gold for peace of mind.

Thank you...I have contacted all Dixie Chopper dealers in 4 states and the company itself with the stolen info. Next is the pawn shops.

Yes, actually the media contacted us.

Did they write anything about this happening or did it appear on tv at all? Did any of them contact you back?
