What happens to dead lawn tractors? I need some parts for my ancient
Sears mowing deck. Sears doesn't sell parts anymore but there must be
a mower junk yard somewhere. Can anyone point me to such a place in the
Boston area? TIA
Mine's not in all that bad shape. I need replacements for the hardware
that mounts the crossed blades on each mandrel. But I could revert to a
single blade on each side, the configuration before I added the grass
catcher. And I need a replacement right headlight lens for the tractor.
Note my tractor is only 17 years old so it hasn't had time to decay an
Also, is it legal to put things containing oil into a landfill?
Good point. The local rule at the "transfer station" is you have to drain
the oil and gas out and leave the plugs / caps off.
But the transfer station is not a landfill. They crush the metal and sell
it for scrap to recycle.
BTW, most 17 yo Sears decks are rotted out.
Well, just today I found a local welding and metal fab shop that is
fixing the fans after I tried to mow some rocks.
But there is no rust on the chariot. I noticed some loud backfires
recently so I may be up for a valve job or engine replacement. I
believe Sears still has the 12 hp Tecumseh engine available. But just
about anything will do.
