What kind of value is in parting out a craftsman 944.607220 (never found any info whatsoever...)?

i am gonna be running it into the ground, it will have duals so a blown rear axle is likely to happen... I also want to add dual stacks for entertainment.

So what would the total value of the parts be? (frame, set of turf tires, tire chains, set of atv tires exactly same size as turf tires, mower deck, motor, transaxle, front axle/steering...)

Not much. Craftsman LTs are often freebies with a blown engine or a blown trany. I'm going to scrap a dozen that I have after salvaging good parts for my own use. The parts aren't worth selling because of the liability. Good Luck, Rick

$30 at the local scrap yard is the best I think you can expect after "running it into the ground"

IDK what your particular Sears rider is but other than the old Suburbans, SS, Customs and such, anything newer isn't really worth much.

Dont sell it, recycle it! Turn it into a yard trailer, or a sulky...or???..sometimes you can save money in the long run! It just takes a vision, and a little creativity.  Cheers.
