I use an old reel mower for my yard, but acquired this older one that doesn't work. A friend said it might be worth something to someone. It says Townsend's on the handle and Townsend Flyer SP Townsend & Co on the wheels.


The wheels are all metal as are the mechanics. The handle is wood as is the neck from the reels to the handle. Any ideas?

Truth be told, people buy these types of mowers as long as they work.

In the condition it is in now you will be lucky to receive $15 for the mower.

If you list this online you will have to ask a large shipping price to send this to the person who buys it.

Your best bet is to try and fix this mower and get it working again and see if you can sell it on Criag's list in your area only.

Is there any value for a 1968 Jacobson edger in great working order?

If this is your cool machine, in 2009 they were selling for $50 (see the link for the one this person bought):


The market has tanked for all collectibles since 2008, so I am guessing that the value is still the same (or maybe a little less) today.

This is a true supply/demand piece so if you are in a place where there are few and a high demand, it will increase the value. A bunch and no demand, drops the value.

Post back with an update! Best wishes!
