I would like to say that J.I case, IHC, Massey Harris would come back, but it's not and once you scrap something for pocket change it's not coming back!I do scrap stuff to keep the yard clean, but never a full piece of equiment, just bits and piece of scrap like pop cans. If you drive by my place you'll never see that I have about 40 pieces of farm equiment all from below the 1950's mark, I have a 60 acer treed land with a 5 acer field in the back. It's nice to have that because if you dont want to look at it you dont have to. most of the stuff I have I bought form people that were going to hual it off to the scrapers that year. I've bought side dilavary rake for $35 a piece, or a JD dubble disk for $30 i just cant say no to stuff like that.

Great to save as much as possible. That rake for example, that rake could rake a LOT of hay to feed alot of stock which in turn feeds people or at least a family. Something like that in due time could be like a glass of water to a THIRSTY man. A rake like that's value could easily be realized.
