    Please anyone who sees this truck trailer or machine it was stolen from Deer Park Long Island 2:00am saturday morning. Truck says cedar ridge on the doors. International 4700 hook lift. Kaufman trailer s250 bobcat with 8' pusher box. Please if you see any of these pieces call the police and let me know.

    Please share this with everyone you know. This guy is one of us just trying to make a dollar on Long Island and now some scum bag has taken everything he uses to feed his family.

    skid not so much but the trailer used to be mine and has some welding and plating done on the neck, the jack was raised up higher so there is some work done around that area too. I know its a long shot but you never know.

    Thats the problem with equip, it disappears in a container or a yard, the truck is very distinctive though and i trust it will show up. Its insane that people steal this stuff, its someones whole life. Is insurance helping him out? Is he all good getting his snow work done?

    Scumbags. Glad I live out in the sticks and we don't have to deal with this sorta thing often. Worst I've lost is a cheapie GPS and 6" round speakers in boxes out of one of my trucks... would have given them away if someone had asked for them LOL they were that bad...

    A friends place about 10 mins away was cleaned out last summer, all his Stihl saws and trimmers. They poisoned his rottweiler to gain access... :( Sick, sick society we live in.

    Insurance yes but you never get what it was worth plus trying to replace the equipment isn't always easy, you know how it is.
    Plus he just dropped $1600 on brakes plus two tanks of fuel a couple days ago.

    I hate scum bum thieves. Hope it turns up, but I have a feeling that rig is heading back to the motherland in a container.

    Im looking for pics of the work I had done to the trailer. Also the truck has after-market mirrors with turn signals or parking lights built in (I have to ask him but I'm not sure if they were ever hooked up)

    TTT (to the top). I have been thinking about this all night. It really makes me mad. I would absolutely lose it if my dump trailer and lawn equipment disappeared. I really hope this stuff comes up, as it appears the owner does amazing work and does not deserve to be in this situation.

    I have GPS on all my trucks.....

    Adding it to the loaders mulch season when we leave them on site..

    Its hard to replace equipment, especially during a busy season..

    Sorry to hear that
