    I am very sorry about this!

    Did this happen when your equipment was parked at home or was this on a job site?

    Is there anything that can be done to prevent this from happening again?
    Yeah the truck was at home when this happened.

    I ordered the locks already, the rack didnt come with them. I needed 1/2 hitch lock pins and the local stores had 3/8. The rack pretty much acted as a display. I had random equipment in the back of the truck for 2 years and never had anything stolen. A matter of fact they didnt take the Husqaurvana or Redmax trimmer that were next to the stihl.

    Either way if your driving by a trimmer rack you would assume it was locked. The only people that would notice it wasnt would be someone walking by it or scoping it out. This makes me suspect some random person less.

    The pawn shops said that model is the most popular trimmer they see and they would look out for it but if it was stolen by another landscaper it will never show up. I was hoping someone did try this as I could get them for the theft and vandalism. Other then that I'm going to go out patrolling my area like its my gang turf.
    I have insurance on as much of my equipment as can be insured. I have coverage on my open trailer and both of my ZTR's. The insurance company wouldn't insure any of my trimmers, blower or hedge trimmers. I hope you find out who did this to you. Have you stepped on any other LCO's turf lately?
    Nope, I been doing my regulars lately. The condos I live in just had 6-8 overgrown bushes removed by a out of town company. They were here a few days before it happen. Besides that theres about 5 different landscapers that do work on my street.

    LMAO!!!!!!! Good one!!!!!! I know plenty of people with some nice gear and their insurance wont cover everything. It can get expensive. Do you have insurance for everything?????????? What if your nice kitchen broom/blower got stolen???? What if someone high on meth thought that ryobi of yours was actually a professional piece of equipment and stole it??? Would that be covered????
    That is so damn funny that I almost feel better.

        Can you get a camera up somewhere to keep an eye on things?

        They really have come down in price and a lot of them are wireless which makes installation easier. Do you think that would help deter future problems?



        This makes me suspect some random person less.
        Also, the slashing of the tires seems to be an act from someone who is angry or bitter. I can't imagine a random their would slice tires too because that makes no sense.
