We have a McCormick "Big six" out bak that Dad bought 25 years ago for $25. it has been sitting for 15 years to collect poison Ivy. I will someday probably buy it for $35 to restore as a lawn ornament.

Last weekend I saw a No.9 high gear go for $125 and a No.9 regular gear go for $95. Usually go for less except these were set up for horses and were sold at an Amish farm auction..Every thing depends on the locality and demand. good luck on your decision

Keep in mind I mentioned site unseen. This past labor day I gave $175 for a #6 in super nice shape with new paint. Sence then I have put around $200 more into it to get it back to origional condition.

Like you I don't own any hay burners. If I want to have some fun with my "toys" I load up what I want to play with and take them to a Amish friends place. He is more than happy to loan me a team so he can have his hay mowed in half the time.

If you re-build it to new condition you probably will not get out of it what you put into it. The #7, #9 and the JD #4 are more popular especially if they have a 6 foot bar. Even then the chances are slim on turning a profit. Most folks who collect horse equipment do it for the love of the old iron, not for the money. At least that's how it is for me.

Hope this helps,

Old Iron

It all depends on how good of condition it's in and how complete it is. I myself give around $50 site unseen for #6 mowers that have the 4 or 5 foot bar as long as they have the tool box cover, the wheels are not all welded up, the axle isn't seized up, and the sidedraft bar isn't bent in half. If they have a 6 foot bar I give around $75 site unseen. If I see the machine and it's in good shape and only needs a few things to get it back to working order I give a bit more.

Hope this helps,

Old Iron

I have a Big 6 mower with 5 foot bar. Number on axle brace is: MB1475. Tool box cover says, McCormack Deering. What color paint should it be? Did it have a wooden divider board? What year is it? Uncle Matt had it back in the 1960"s as far as us kids remember.
