    I heard that last year evergreen john deere took a deposit on 2 bobcats... came later and brought a truck and certified cheque, and left with the machines. turned out the certified cheque was a fake.

    I really like my coded key pad for the bobcat

    WOW, that's not real nice, but you should have heard what he posted about meeting you!!!! :rolleyes:

    I've long thought about going into parts of Canada snowmobiling, but heard too many times about rampant theft in certain areas. No thanks, I'll stick to this area until it's time to get rid of one of the sleds.

    Not as bad as you think, I and many other friends have been all over Ontario, Quebec and the east coast and never have had a sled stolen. Not to say it doesn't happen, but don't let a few stories stop you from enjoying some of the best snomobiling in the world.tymusic

    Do they ever investigate the leasing companies? Think about it.

    My memory isn't very good, but I don't think it was Ontario that was the area I'm thinking of. I think it was somewhere in Quebec. From the stories I read, the police were of no help. On a side note, do they have a speed limit in Ontario?

    a buddy of mine had his case 75xt stolen, then a couple of months later he seen a guy plowing snow with it just down the road from where it was stolen, he was lucky he could tell his machine because he welded brackets on the back to use as tie downs. he stopped and pulled the guy out of the machine, he said it was all he could do to refrain from beating the snot out of him
