    Have you ever sold your 21' mower in as scrap metal. If so how much did you get?

    Dont forget to fill the fuel tank up with water so you can get $10.12 for it!

    I took one in with a load of scrap. You'll probably get shred price at around $0.10 a pound.

    Cost more in fuel to get it there if that's all you have to take.

    Yep $3.00 in scrap. I'd give it away or keep it as a yard ornament

    A whole truckload of 21's might bring you a $50 bill. But after gas and picking something up in a tire probably only cost you $25 to get rid of em
