    That really sucks, one of my biggest worries is getting stuff stolen. Kind of hard ot secure stuff in your yard it's very open to the public. Just so you know you can get different keys made up that aren't the same as every other JD tractor.

    Send that clip to City TV along with a video or picture of the tractor setup and ask them to put it on the 6 oclock news. Maybe worth a try?

    Pretty good resolution camera you have. Someone will recognize him.

    I agree with sending it to the news in hopes someone recognizes him. This is one of the best security cameras I've ever seen but still doesn't show his face clearly. Also, a perfect photo of him smiling for a camera is only good if you or someone willing to narc on him recognizes it. Unfortunately.

    Does anyone know how much Lowjack costs? I've always thought it would be a great sport to show up at these peoples yards and take back what they stole plus whatever else they had there. What would they do? Call the cops?

    Invention of the year would be in cab motion sensor/gps tracker that pages your cell phone when triggered. I have been fortunate enough to not have anything stolen other than stereos but have showed up to several machines with open windows, siphoned fuel, wide open throttles, turned on radios and other things that let me know someone has been in there. It'd be wonderful to roll in when they are there... my justice system would work substantially better than Ontario's.

    I would be in jail if I showed up when they were driving out. Without a doubt.

    Do JD tractors have universal keys? Good luck with it, hope the A hole is caught and it's back to normal before the next storm.

    That f-in sucks.

    Knock on wood I have not had anything disappear except for radios and such. Iv'e ofter thought of setting one of my IR trail cameras up around my onsite snow stuff.

    There are people with the skill sets to optimize that footage.

    Also, now is the time to print out a colour picture of the tractor and put it on the hydro poles in your area(like at stop lights) about it being stolen.

    Also, you should take a photo of the unit to businesses nearby your shop and ask if they saw it yesterday or if they might have footage of that time you see him in your yard. The guy didn't walk there himself, he was dropped off.

    I hate to say it but it is probably already headed to Quebec(don't get mad Neige! lol) or elsewhere to get re-VIN'd.

    I would forgo sending it to TV stations and go right to Craig's List or Kijiji. Make a listing that grabs people's attention...like "THIEF CAUGHT ON VIDEO, DO YOU KNOW HIM? REWARD OFFERED!" Then ask people to forward the link to other people.

    I bet you'll get a lot of responses.

    I have a customer who's doorbell is a video link to his cellphone, I rang it once and he answered from Antigua... it's amazing what you can get.

    Hope it works out for you Steffan... what a pain. Is that a snow cloud over Mississauga finally...JK

    Love to see the guy caught.

    Lo jack or boomerang isnt much of a help. Someone wants your stuff they will get it. By the time you roll out of bed hop in your truck wait for the glow plugs to cycle its gone.

    Friend had 2 backhoes stolen 2 years ago not far from cedars shop. They had a tacking system on it but it led them to the snowbank with the system hooked up to a battery.

    You also never know what these thieves have on them. What are your mean words and a baseball bat going to do against a gun?
