    Default What would this be worth

    I have a 6' Bushhog Squealer that the top is rusted out. A trusted welder told me he didn't think the unit could be repaired at a reasonable cost. With that being the case I don't want it just laying around the farm. The gear box, rear wheel etc are in good shape. What could I get for the thing or should I just give it away? Thanks!

    About $0.35 per pound at the scrap yard. Then again, there is always Ebay.

    If the gear box and rear wheel are in good shape as you say, don't give it away, sell it for $50. Someone will give it to you. Put it where someone driving by can see it, with a sign for $75 on it and then come down to the $50.
    You'd be surprised what someone who already knows how to weld, and has some extra plate lying around can do with a cutter like that.
    My good friend just repaired his 30 year old, rusted out topped cutter for about $50.

    Definitely part it out. Does it have a stump jumper? I have seen those get warped before and new ones are NOT cheap. The gear box alone is worth the $75 mentioned I would think. Does the PTO shaft have a clutch on it or a shear pin? You have a lot of good parts there that someone will pay good money for. I had to put an output shaft in my 6ft squealer and seems like it was $50 bucks. If the gearbox doesn't leak and not much play in the gears, I say stick a sign on it and see what happens.
