Gordyo does any of this equipment have any particular markings on it? Names or numbers? When you say north shore do you mean Revere to Salisbury or more inland? I read the wants ads almost every week and if I see that combo I'll give you a shout. Was the entire truck stolen or just the parts? Some people are just :evil

JD,

I don't know too many details other than it was brand new stuff, never seen snow should only be Diamond and Meyer on it no company names, there was no truck just the equipment. I would say Boston to Southern New Hampshire would be were it might be seen, but who knows.

It's going to be real tough, as you said, its brand NEW. If it were used, scratch, dent, visible marking, etc would give it away. But new......Its anyone's guess.

Did they alert all local plow shops? This way if they're brought in, and THEY didn't sell it, they could start asking more questions....

Good Luck!

I once looked at a tandem dump truck, 10 years old, that only had 86,000 miles on it. It had been parked in a barn for 5 years while it cooled off. It had been recovered and the dealer had bought it from the insurance company. A customer of mine lost a New Holland skid loader and when it was recovered three years later it only had 100 hours more on the clock (but they were obviously *hard* hours), than the day it disappeared. It was never proven that the farmer who had it was the theif--he claimed to have bought it from someone who represented it as their own.

My point is this--if you've not paid for the equipment in the first place there's not a real strong incentive to get it to pay for itself. Whoever stole that plow and spreader might not try to unload them until next year, or later. *Any* time you're offered a deal that's too good to be true, be suspicious.

BTW, if they catch *you* in possesion of the stuff, even if you bought it, that's called "recieving stolen property", and at the very least it'll be returned to the rightful owner and you'll lose your investment...

But metal is too sturdy -- they should use the little red plastic shovels kids use on the beach!
I suppose we are keeping this thread near the top.... ;)
