    That's pretty much what my trailer is being used for. It's not operational at the moment, so it's just considered a storage unit for stuff not being used.

    One of the guys that my son-in-law knows has a whole family to feed on just 1 paycheck. We give him all of our old aluminum and yard equipment etc. He strips it down and sells it to the local recycler.

    I have a buddy that sells old car parts on e bay does pretty good with it does about 30 grand a year on e bay alone. You could do that with old mower parts and such too I would think.

    I just got rid of 3 old pushmowers, broken weedwackers, chainsaw, trimmers and blowers and some other stuff recently. I gave the junk to some of my employees they where happy with it. I needed to make room in mys shop for some new replacements this season.

    The guy on the receiving end of that sounds like my dad when I was a youngster. He was working as a mechanic at a car dealership to support a family of 4, struggling to make ends meet, and got a lot of help from his bosses and coworkers. Those fine folks helped to keep a roof over our heads and food in our stomachs. God bless them, and god bless you for looking out for your fellow man.
