best way to get of old garden tractors

between my father in law and my dad ( both stubborn ) im trying to get them to get rid of some (parts is parts) units.

Dads- early 70s Sears Suburban 12. needs lots of work, dont run. there is a sickle bar unit for this also.

Father in law- 1968 Gilson/Wards 12 HP. very rough parts only.
1970 Gilson/Wards 16 HP. very rough. finally died about 3 weeks ago due to wiring problems. it has no spark, charging sysem smells burnt, and wires where melted on back of ignition switch.
local garden tractor scrap yard said 90 bucks on the 2 Gilson/Wards units. anybody here in Pa looking for these for parts or a old Sears Suburban 12 for parts.

Hello Bill

Maybe you should try to sell the stuff on Craigslist or even E-bay

Re: best way to get of old garden tractors

ebay the scicle bar for sure. If they were mine, I'd try craigslist and ebay. Suburbans are collectable reguardless of the shape.

Maybe they feel about tractors like gun owners feel about guns.

"If they want my garden tractor, they can come and pry it off my cold, dead butt."

3-pt hitch, rear PTO
Power Flow and MC519 cart
LP RTR0550 rototiller
?? 60" box blade
Simplicity 10" plow adapted to 3-pt hitch
45 FEL

'02 JD GT235, 48C deck

'84 JD 318, 50" deck

'86 JD 214, 46" deck

I've always had a problem with kleptomania.
When it gets really bad, I take something for it.
