Re: What are not running riding mowers going for antique, old, and new?
Scrap value is under $100, maybe under $50. If you need to add an engine, engines go for $100 up. Add a tranny, $75 - 100. Tires, tubes $15 - 20 each. Things add up.
I've seen some Craftsman 'green' LT1000's going for $400 - 500 with either bad motors or bad tranny.
I'm watching 2 1980's vintage, series 200 Wheel Horses, one with a bad motor, one with a bad tranny. They're asking $150 for both, been 3 weeks and not sold yet.
One and 2 year old Craftsmans are being listed for close to or just above what you can buy new ones for. Don't figure.
Exotic models do bring top dollar.
Make a CASH offer. Cold hard cash in hand shows that you're a 'dealer', not just a 'tire kicker'.
