    Relax guys... I do a Sydney run once a week. Basically to see the old folks. (then stay over night at their place) The Sydney run is well paying customers only.
    So its worth the drive.

    This old chestnut...

    IMAG1190.jpg

    Finished up at a quick job, jumped back into the Ute and as I closed my drivers door, the glass in my passenger door shattered (at the same time, the hopes of having a productive day were too). No doubt a gum nut went through it while I was snipping the edges and didn't shatter completely until I shut my door afterwards. First time in this Ute, but the second time done since I started this business.

    Coming out of the house this morning to find my ute canopy broken into. Everything stolen, hedge trimmers, all my chemicals, sprayers, hand tools, a mower etc. All I own equipment wise now is my ride on, 2 push mowers, a brush cutter and 2 blowers.
    I have not one item of garden maintenance equipment now.
    Very sad day.

    Sorry to hear that
    A electrician friend of mine had a canopy broken into the same as yours.
    He fitted a movement sensor,if you get close to the glass the alarms starts up
