I'm not incorporated,and I don't know if that would matter tto be honest. For me there is no such thing as "private seller" unless I lie. I am my business.

if you scrap it take it apart the starter motor can bring more money off the machine if the deck is aluminum or engine block that is descent money .75 for aluminum last time I looked here .
I removed a dead snapper rear engine mower took it apart ended up with about $20+ from that junk last year .

Id put it in front of my my house during scrap season be gone in 5 mins. Not worth the effort to me to sell or scrap something so small.
