My Husband got his Snow-blower stolen from him, yesterday, we had a lot of snow, He Snow-blowed thew front and back yard. we don't have a Garage, so he has to keep all his tools under this shed, He even Snow-blowed the persons next door driveway. This person just moved in next door, We think he did it. A lot of times my husband would not lock-up his Snow-Blower no one ever messed with it. But I honestly thing the Man next door dd it. This snow-blower is so heavy it would take to people to carry it. I want to get him another one, he make money Snow Blowing people's Side-walks and driveways, I can afford to buy him a new one, but I will be looking around for one for him a used one. Where is the best place to look for him one?~Thanks~ Marcie.

I have no clue as it doesn't snow here enough to merit owning such a machine. sounds like your friends have given you really good advice. Just wanted to say I am truly sorry that happened. People know not what they do when they wrong someone else.

Sorry to hear that your snow blower was stolen. That would be pretty bold if it was the man next door. Then he uses it, and you see that it is yours. That would be pretty bold I would think. I hope you can find one cheap to replace the one that was stolen.

No Terry24, it wasn't him it was these 2 teenagers, well my husbands friend gave him another one, and he will make sure he locks this one up, since we don't have a garage.

If you get another one you might have to chain it to something so it doesn't get stolen again.

No he didn't take it, but the tracks was in his front yard, 2 Teenagers did this. My neighbor 2 doors down seen them pushing it down the street. I went over to her house, to ask her did she see anyone in my yard. she didn't know they took it from my yard untill I asked her. then we put 2 and 2 together.

That really sucks Marcia. I'm sorry your snow blower was stolen. Hopefully it wasn't this new neighbor. If it was, he sure isn't being neighborly, is he? :( You can always try craiglist.org to see if there are any used ones for sale. Good luck!

Wow, someone had the nerve to steal your snowblower? This is crazy. And to think it could be your New neighbor. If I were you I would be watching to see if he did, and then confront him if he did. Well, since I no longer live in an area that gets a lot of Snow usually, I do not know where to get one, but I am sure if you look hard enough, you can find somewhere that has these for a decent price. Or maybe check around the Pawn shops, etc. to see if your stolen one shows up there. Did you file a Police Report? Wishing you the best in replacing this.

That sucks Marcie, shame on who ever took it. You guys need a snow blower too, you are in a snowbelt area. you guys get dumped on with snow. Have you reported it stolen, did the crooks leave footprints to follow. I do hope you get it back, but you probably won't. As for getting another one, check the paper and the trading post. Good luck, they might be hard to find during the snowy season.

Hey Vicky I just got some information. Someone down the street seen 2 boys with snow blower she said that they were coming form my way, I seen track in the yard next door, where someone had pushed the Snow-blower on the lawn, you still see the tracks, so I know who took the Snow-Blower. I can't prove it but the lady seen 2 boys, we are going to wait to get more information, we did call the police.

I am so sorry to hear that Marcie. We have had things stolen from us before several times also. I hate it. You may want to look on Ebay for a used snowblower. I don't use Ebay but I know you can find some good deals there. Be careful who you buy from though.

I'm sorry about your husbands snow blower being stolen. It's a shame what little disregard people have for other peoples property, especially if it was in fact your neighbor. Over the summer our garage was broken into and quite a few things , including a motorcycle were stolen. We knew exactly who did it but our police department did very little. It's wonderful that your husband was given another one. Goes to show there are still wonderful people out there willing to lend a little support. As others have said, check the pawn shops. Maybe even keep your eyes open during the next storm for someone using it. If you still want to get him a new one, maybe hold off until spring and keep an eye out for the winter clearance sales. Good luck to you both. :)
