5860 stolen
« on: October 02, 2017, 02:02:21 pm »
 If being sick isn't bad enough some one decided they needed my Landini more than me. Finally got up enough strength to go logging and when I got to the landing my loader/skidder tractor is gone. I hadn't been to the job in 3 weeks so I don't know when it disappeared.
 Anyone have ideas of where else I should alert companys. I put it on Tractor House .com already  . Reported to police,dealer I bought it from and to my Insurance (found out that I did insure it) I'm going to call Mcfadden's out in New York too.

Sorry to hear this Ed, perhaps wishful thinking are you sure someone didn't take it for a joy ride and it is still on the property some were?

Could put a ad on line (craigslist) and offer a reward for info, it would also alert people in the market for one so they don't get burnt by buying a stolen tractor.

 The land owner next door that lets me use their driveway for me and the log trucks to access my landing spent the afternoon looking over his land to see if someone went thru a fence to get it out. No luck. Has to be someone who knew it was there and when the neighbor would be gone for a while. Here's a couple of pictures.

A couple years back someone took my rotten for a ride. They did bring it back. I called the state cops. They told me if they couldn't drive there car to it there was nothing they could do. So I tried the forest service. They were there in less than 2 hrs. They set up cameras.  The guy that took it had a hunting close by. I was given the dirtbags name. The forest service called him. Just to let him know he would be watched

That's some really bad news, people don't have anything better to do these days then steal a working man's tools what a shame. Sorry that happened to you. I'll keep my eye out and spread the word where I can I'm in relatively the same area as you. Hoping it turns up soon. I'm logging a mile from bacons if you want me to let them know about it I will be going in there to pick up some saw parts on thurs.

Sorry for your trouble, hope it's gonna show up some where.
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

My goodness Ed. There is nothing more despicable than a rotten low life thief. Bad thing about it, I think it's going to get worse. Too many people out there that think we owe them something if we have more than they do. They can't grasp the fact that most of us have been working two or three jobs at at time for our whole lives. Time to bring back public hangings.

Ed, I'll keep you in my prayers. Someone else will have to take up the slack for the low life.

Ed very sorry to hear.  We've never met but I can say that ...that sucks.  Landini is one of only 3 orchard tractor models that I have my eye on and I've seen the pictures of your build and have a couple saved off and sent to my mechanic/fabricator. 

Well, I would suggest that you use the following tool to search craigslist.

www.searchcraigslist.org

It searches all over the US/Canada.  You can sort only by relevance and date so it is going to give you a broad set of search results.  What it will do is give results from everywhere.  Not always perfect but if they stole it and drove it 400 miles away and post it, you'll find it I'm sure. 

Man, so sorry to hear about that.  Makes me worried about leaving my property.

Sorry to hear about this Ed, I will definitely keep my eyes and ears open for you. That is one seriously rotten move on someone's part. Just a thought but maybe notify weangers?, the big tractor salvage yard in PA. What part of Massachusetts was it taken from?

Check with and keep an eye on all the auctions, especially those far away from you, it might turn up on auction many states away, those places are supposed to do a check to make sure its not stolen, but its hard to keep up to date on all the stolen serial numbers out there floating around and can be easily missed.      Point being, make sure its listed in a national sheet and not only a state sheet reporting it stolen.     

Sad to hear about it, but luckily you had it insured.

Sorry to hear that. I farm some fields 30 miles from home and often leave equipment there for days or weeks and I lose sleep at night all the while my equipment is sitting out there. If I don't have reason to be there for more than a day or two the wife and I will go for ice cream and check on it just so I can ease my mind some. Being a "peculiar" model should make it easier to keep an eye on Craigslist, auctions, and equipment jockey lots.
