Value of an Old Lawn Mower?

Lawn mowers have been manufactured for over 100 years and many vintage or antique models may retain some value, especially if they are still operational.

I found this old Toro in my uncle's garage. Is it worth anything or should I throw it out?

You can sell this working or not because there is a lot of lawnmower collectors out there. They have special forums that they meet to talk about, help each other, and trade or buy mowers on. If it were me I'd clean this up some and check it out to see if it still runs. It just looks very dirty from use and some gas should cut through the oil and dirt on the outside of the mower. You may need to get some new spark plugs and flush out the tank to get it working again. If you can get it working a collector will pay a bit more for this. On average, the push mowers sell for $60-75 and the gas ones sell for double this price if they are working. I would suggest that you join a lawnmower forum because they are the best places to talk to people about this mower and find a buyer for it.
