I can't just walk in to a scrap yard, point at an item, say "that was mine!", and expect the police to believe me and confiscate the item. Unfortunately, you almost need to catch the thief in the act, or have documented evidence that the unit is indeed yours. Like JD says, that's awful hard to do unless you mark and catalog every item. Otherwise, it's your word against theirs.
Neighbor went to the local consignment sale a couple years back and saw a chisel plow *exactly* like his. Turns out it was his. The auctioneer's hired hand went up the road to his place, hooked onto it and pulled it to the sale. Auctioneer swore up and down that the fellow was honest and that my neighbor was a liar. Neighbor offered to call the sheriff. Suddenly, maybe a mistake was made! Turns out he was supposed to go to another guy's place to grab a plow.... "Here's your plow back sir, and sorry for the inconvenience." Probably just hauled his next ill-gotten gain to the scrap yard.
