Sad all the stuff going to scrappers. I cannot imagine why scrap is so high in your area. Must have a smelter nearby or buyer sells directly to the mill. I am wondering though if he does not part out certain things .... tires, engines, trannies. I know of one in Amarillo TX that takes engines, especially MM 6 cyl. ones and sells them as irrigation pump $$$ engines. The $ from the rest is icing on the cake.....

BTW, picked up a 105 for less than the price of a main (pics will follow...)

Ralph,no smelter close by..These scrap buyers are only paying $175-200 a ton for short iron brought to them..But,they can go to a sale and pay $300-350 a ton for unprepared..

One scrapper bought everything at this sale..He will sell parts off at a pretty good price but sold very little at the sale...After he hauls it off theres no parts sold.

Right after the IH 2 ton sold for scrap for $1500 I told him I had two Loadstar IH"s that each outweighed this one...I told him that I"d deliver them to him for $1500 each and he said he couldnt do that..

Rumor is that they are being subsidized by the government..It wouldnt surprise me any..

I forgot to mention that here, too, scrap brought to the big yard, not smelter, will bring about the same as in your neck of the woods. What I was saying is that the yard owners buying directly will get more at the smelter per ton, and so can pay a little higher prices cutting out the small timer, also by loading up the semi, volume does make a little more profit than smaller loads.
What I was told is that prices rise traditionally in the winter, about November through April.... maybe they are stockpiling, some here in sw OK do.
(I am stockpiling my aluminum cans hoping the pound goes back to .60 from .40 ...LOL)
As far as the subsidies, if anyone does get them it would be the metal industry/smelters, and passing some of it on ...
