I saw these on ebay. Rotary brush, rotary mower, and snowblower for a ride-a-matic. The owner says they're going to the scrapyard if they don't sell :(

I don't need them, and they're too far away for me to go rescue. Hope someone can keep them from being scrapped.

I hate those stupid "will be scrapped" threats.  80% of the time that would be a loss to the seller.

For sure. I'd give him 10-15 cents a pound. At that price, I'd make the drive.

I don't think he would scrap them for a loss. Pretty sure he's got more $ in them than that.

 

He's a member here

Wonder why he didn't list them here if he's a member.

I assure you they will be scrapped if not sold. I will not give them away to someone and I don't want them sitting around.

Not to be offensive by any means, if worst comes to worst, don't give them away to the scrapper.  At least sell them for scrap price to a collector.  I'm sure there is a collector out there willing to pay scrap price for them.

I'll trade for gravely equipment. If a collector wants it they will have to pay for like I did otherwise it will be another piece of history. I'm sure that will offend some people but after dealing with some of the "collectors" I wouldn't help them in any way. That's one reason I stopped being active on this site.

Crush it! Burn it! Scrap it!

 

As a matter of principle I wouldn't give you a dime because of your pi$$ poor attitude.

Just the other day I sold a Wheel Horse to a local guy. While he was at the house I asked him if he needed any parts I had in a box - all of which I listed 100 times in various places. He ended up leaving with the tractor and the box of parts for free. Even at market value, what would I have gained for all the parts? $50-100. I don't need the money that bad. Maybe you do. I rather see it go to good use and help another person out. Don't hurt yourself loading the stuff on the trailer.
