I have a Toro Professional 58 reel mower. It runs and mows. I would like to know if it's worth anything and how much. I also have a Flymo 2 cycle; is this worth anything? I'm cleaning out some of my stuff I've collected over the years. Thanks.

I found an eBay ad for the mower for $175. http://m.ebay.c … 9%257Ciid%253A14

Your Toro may be worth $350-$550 depending on the overall condition (even the cosmetic condition counts when selling) but a lot would depend on where you are located as these machines would have to be picked up.
You could list it on your local Craigslist (cleaned up and with several photos) for $500 and see if you get any takers. You can always drop the price if no one seems interested. This is something that anyone has to see and hear running before they would pay serious money.
Here are a couple of links that has information on parts and shows a good diagram of each part of the machine.

The ad Judy is referring to is for a motor and not a mower.
As to value of your Flymo - you may have it priced a little high (your eBay listing) but then again, these are still popular and there is a lot of interest in vintage mowers right now so good luck - hope you sell it.

There is another similar mower listed but it has not been tested so the seller will probably not be able to sell his.

My husband passed away recently. This was one of his prized possessions, his grandfather's Briggs and Stratton motorized reel lawn mower that he used over 35 years ago.

I was given an old reel mower for which I would like to have an owners manual.
The front plate says: Pennsylvania with a model number of R15 and a serial number of 40302. I would appreciate any information about this machine.
