Stihl 036 & other gear taken in CHESHIRE

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I hoped I would never need to post in this section but unfortunately I need to.


My dad had a Stihl 036 stolen on Monday night from FRODSHAM in CHESHIRE.

Along with other expensive tools such as 2 Dewalt cordless drills and a Dewalt bench saw.


The 036 has a WA6 postcode clearly marked on it and the only other thing we can think of is that the petrol cap looks much much newer than the oil cap.


The saw was in a plastic Stihl hard case with a padlock on so were not expecting the case to be around anymore.


BASTARDS! Loads of similar thefts in the area involving sheds and garages.


One thing which pissed him off is that a really old Black & Decker electric drill was taken too. Some would say they are crap drills but this one was bought for him by my mum when he was 23, he is now in his late 50's!!! Back in the day when my mum saved up every last penny so my dad could have his own drill.... Really upsetting in a way.


I am so angry, times like this I wish hanging and stretching of criminals was still allowed.


My dad is fully insured but to get the saw back would be fantastic.


The shed it was stolen from was part of a fin forest summerhouse which has solid doors and good locks. There were 2 security lights and a locked gate but they still managed to steal the gear. So my note to everyone is make sure you take extra steps in security because it is horrible and I am sick and tired of seeing more and more gear go missing from ArbTalk users.


I once read that most home owners upgrade their home security once they have been broken into. Spend a little money now because you need it……..



Any info, please contact me: leeoulton@live.co.uk



Reward will be given,



Thanks all,.......

Your not allowed to use the right words on here for this situation. Best I can do is I'll keep my ears back for the saw and let my old man's lads (joiner, plumber, electrician etc) know about the drills.
