    My wife wakes me up at 6am to tell me my plow was stolen. I live on the south side of Des Moines. The plow is a 7.5 sport duty boss blade. If you guys see some one selling one cheap it might be mine. My dog ate the power wires on the plow so I had to fix them and the plow guide post on the plow are missing. If you can keep you eyes and ears open for me that would be great. I just love how people can steal my plow not knowing that they need the truck side mount and all the wiring on the truck to make it work. So I guess I turn the police case number to the ins. company and hope for the best. So if anyone can help me out it would make my crappy day a little less crappy for me. Also I'm going to need another plow for my truck so if you know anyone selling one I might buy it. (Hopefully it not stolen) Thanks for reading this I know it is a little long but it has been a long morning.

    Your homeowners SHOULD cover it. Or at least thats how I thought it was. I think it has to be specifically written in though. Good luck, im a little far away but ill keep my eyes open for it.

    I think that's what I'm going to do is build a wheeled cart and store the plow in the garage. It sucks the things we have to do now a days to safe guard our equipment. Years ago everyone knew everyone and if someone stepped out on line they felt it. (got a beat down) I wish people where more trustworthy.
