Jeff Sanford said: (quoted from post at 04:50:19 07/17/13) Where are you getting $355 a ton as a scrap price? That's not what he paid for them. That's what he's willing to let them go for. I guess you think he's going to give them away for what he gave? He's been paying $200 a ton and his asking price is WAY less than what he can get after he crushes them. He has to make money to pay his bills; lights, electric, fuel, labor, insurance, maintenance, repairs, etc. There's a minimal economic lesson there for you.

I got 355 a ton off Pete's number and estimating the 60 to weigh 3 ton (it won't weigh 3 ton as it sits, though - too much metal is gone). But then I looked closer at the ad and see you stated .17 per pound. That's $340 a ton. I don't expect him to give it away. That's why I say he's probably gonna end up crushing it. It's just too common a tractor and that particular one is just too far gone. Now, you could strip it for parts....
Tell him you'll pay .17 per pound for just the parts you want.

Right here's the opportunity. Buy them. Strip them down. Keep what you need. Sell the parts you don't need. Take what's left over back to the scrapper. I've made some good money doing that; just not with Deere. Come on. Think about what a block sells for, then the crank, head, radiator, clutch parts, brake parts, steering parts, transmissions, etc.
