I had my David bradley generator stolen Thursday night down at the Portland Ind tractor show. It was u set a tarp that was weighted down even and slid under a table. If anyone happens to see this somewhere at a show or maybe listed on Craigslist or eBay please let me know. I'm guessing they will repaint it since the late blue color is not as common as the earlier red ones Any help would be appreciated. This isn't a cheap item and I would like to have it back A police report has been filed so they have record of it in a national database Thanks guys!!!

Well that really sucks, double that cus it happened at a show, I hope you get it back but I'm thinking it was stolen because it's a generator

Sorry you have to go through this. Did you happen to have the serial # recorded? I see there is a spot for it on generator tag.

That is very sad

They must have been eye balling it during the day

Have you tried calling any of the local scrap yards around Portland to see if it showed up there

no i haven't I'm pretty sure it wasn't stolen for scrap It had to be someone who had seen it earlier that day I sure regret now not strapping it down to my trailer You think in this hobby people would be a little more honest A bunch of things got stolen this year even a hit n miss engine and a cub cadet tractor

Sounds like it's time for someone to stay on site overnight to provide security. When they start hauling stuff that size off something needs to be done. Sad!

I've always been hesitant to bring my stuff to shows especially out of state and this certainly dosent make me feel any better.

Hope they catch the guy who did it , people like this have no place in this hobby and should be hanged for it!

 

I'm guessing if he knows what it is , he'll wait a few months before selling it thinking everyone has forgotten about it, I'll check ebay and Craigslist when I can remember to see if it surfaces

There can't be a lot of those around. Any DB gen listing should be suspect.

Not the kind of thing you just shove in your pocket. I would think some one pulling a trailer or with a carryall behind their but buggy. Maybe with a cover. Don.

Do they allow you to tie a pit bull to your site?

Most of the shows up here have secruity, usally someone driving around all night to keep eye on things, but that still don't mean there is a chance of stuff going missing
