I recently saved this beauty from the scrap yard, but can't find any info. I was wondering its value.
I can't seem to find the exact mower you are asking about. However, there are other vintage mowers similar to yours that are selling for around $60 yo $150. If the mower is restored you can get a higher asking price for the mower.
There is one on Pinterest that shows it as red and green:
As to value, that is very regional, so my suggestion is to talk to your local feed store or local hardware store of if you are lucky enough to have an antique/vintage shop that deals in garden items, talk to them about how much it would cost to buy a fully restored version in your town.
That will be retail and you can expect to get a little less than retail if you are selling it on your own.
Post back what you learn and where you are located so we can all learn regional values! Thanks for asking.
I found an old Sears Roebuck push mower, model #131 81180. Where can I find more information?
You may have already posted it on this site (see link below) and got your answer that it is an early 1950s version), as it looks like an exact match to yours...
Below is a neat site that has a lot of Sears/Craftsman history:
So many of their products are still around it is amazing...it is good if you are using them, but bad for value as supply is high and demand, not always high...so as for value...I would just keep an eye on the SOLD auctions on eBay and other online sites matching your exact item to the exact item sold.
You can find sold auctions by clicking the sold button on your screen (completed + sold). I don't see an exact match for yours today, but the market changes hourly, so keep checking back!
NEVER use asking price to determine value, as people can ask the world, value in today's market is only what people will ACTUALLY PAY for an item!
I love the color! Thanks for sharing!
It looks like a 1953 or 54 model because the earlier engines had fill for tank in the center. The 131 of the model number denotes it was built by Rally/Roper, the company which later joined American Yard Products, which is now owned by Husqvarna.
Hi! I would just put it on for $200 or more if it is really old and see if anyone buys it!
I can not find the exact mower you have pictured here. In order to quote you a fair price for the item it is difficult because it seems nobody has one listed or there are no images of this mower I can find. In order to understand what you have found and what it is worth you will need to visit a lawnmower forum that specializes in these types of mowers to find out more about this mower.
I would like to know the value of my 1948 Coldwell-Philadelphia Bear power mower. It has a Briggs & Stratton Model WI motor. The engine does turn over.
It appears that nobody wants to sell this mower. I can find a few videos of the mower running on YouTube. However, everyone who owns this mower isn't selling them. I would suggest that you contact an antique mower dealer in your area.
I have a 1964 Cub Cadet 100 lawn tractor with the owner's manual with the date of purchase. The tractor is equipped with original tires and motor. I have the original mower deck and two snowblower attachments. What is this worth?
LOW ASKING PRICE OF A 1964 TRACTOR IS 600.00,HIGH PRICE IS 1450,00.
This one is asking $1500. www.ebay.com/
These are popular machines and that you have original pieces is great!!
Right now there are none sold on eBay to give you the global or regional market value of them. I find the most accurate way to value things is to use eBay sold. That tells me exactly what someone is willing to pay for something...which is today's current market value.
Never us asking price to value as people can ask what they want and only sold tells you what someone is willing to pay.
The challenge with the lawn tractors is they are almost always sold as local pick up so you will only be seeing the price for where the person listed it...where you are it may be higher or lower based on supply and demand.
Maybe someone on one of the websites below can give you more insight on values in your area:
Most on this site are generalists and know our specific areas of interest and values in the cities where we are.
This last site is specifically devoted to tractor sales and there is a Cub on there with the phone number of the seller....so if he is in your area maybe he can give you a feel for your town's price threshold.
Let me know what answers you find!!
I was just wondering what the value of this mower is. I have had it for years and just would like to see if it's worth auctioning off to make a bit of money.
This one is asking 225 pounds. www.ebay.co.uk/
If you want to sell the mover to make a bit of a profit, I would sell it locally at an antique store. This way you do not have to worry about shipping and handling costs. You should be able to get around $250 or so for the mower.
How do I find out the value of a 1970 Toro Whirlwind electric lawnmower model 18301?
These are less than $100 on eBay.
The value of the mower depends on a lot of factors. One way to find out about this mower is by visiting a vintage lawn mower forum. These guys are so helpful and can tell you the true value of your mower. Online sites to sell items are not a great way to find out how much they are worth. Check out this forum. www.oldlawnmowerclub.co.uk/
