    yes, i know. i cringe when i hear that word too, but bare with me...

    I have an old crapsman. about 8 years old. its a rider, steering wheel and all. My dad used to mow our lawn with it before i got in the biz. He told me to sell it, its taking up space. runs great, good blades, a few scratches of course. what would one go for? is there any kind of blue book for mowers? especially old ugly ones like this?

    Thanks

    Do what the pawnshops do to determine value of an item and check Ebay. Best of luck.

    I'm not interested, but what size engine and deck? You'll need that info to determine a price. And is there an hour meter?

    $300-500 maybe, what brand engine, number of cylinders, rope or electric start, size deck, number of blades, attachments other than mower? A pic would be helpful. I am pretty good at prices for L&G tractors.
    good luck giving that thing away!!

    Take the motor out and use it to make another tool like a pressure washer or air compressor. You'll never get the value of even the motor if you sell it as a mower

    acorn is correct but if you don't need the engine give it to a needy family?
