$50 is a fair price - my top end is $75 ( ill go $100 on rare ocasions ) - but anything from free to $50 is definitly a fair price.

Years ago i bot a 96 MTD that had a 18.5HP twin for $50 - was worth it just for the motor.

Yea, and i mean its not like they're junk, you clean the carb and there go as new. A lot of people just aren't mechanically inclined, i guess.

Same here- heck for super cheep and freebies - why not? I suppose thats why i have 28 tractors . Some were pretty bad, but didnt take much to get the motors running. Id like to get more but between my wife saying 'NO' and not seeing any really cheep around - im at a collecting stand still. Hopefully my nephew will come thru and hook me up soon.

ya to me it seems like when ever you are looking for something for sale/free you there's aren't any but when your not looking for something for sale/free there's a bunch for sale/free.
