    so far this year one truck has been stolen and found 3 days later stripped of everything plow vbox stereo wheels. Another truck was broken into, but the driver heard him and went outside with a bat and chased him off. last year One of our best drivers got his truck stolen he had lojack they find the truck 3 hours later and its already stripped of plow and spreader but the wires were left in. He goes buy another spreader and I loan him a plow and 2 days later it is stolen again and He is still working off the new plow, spreader, and my plow he got stolen. It is terrible!!!

    i had a plow stolen from one of my trucks on new years day. we spilled some gas in the bed when we were out on new years eve so we left it outside went in new years day night and the plow pump, harness, strobelight(permenent mount) and even a clipboard and a 6 pack of 2stroke oil gone. when the police showed up to take the report he told me they have had over a dozen in the last week, and that was just in a small country town.

    I let one of my guys take a truck home every now and then when it snows and I have him leave the plow up and back it up to his front door. Its got a very sensitive alarm on it. Thieves that steal tools are just plain taking food right off the table, its disgusts me

    The company I used to work for occasionally leaves trucks at satellite locations and thieves got a hold of one them the other day. They stole the plow, the truck side mount, the complete wiring harness and v-box off of it. It had to be an inside job.
