Craftsman DRM 500

tm777January 18, 2009

I recently inherited a Craftsman DRM 500 riding mower and with a little TLC got it in good running condition again, however, I really don't need the little bug and was wondering how much it would be worth? Thanks

You'll have to set it out front with a for sale sign on it, and wait! Also put a price on it. If its too much, nobody will stop. If its too cheap, it'll go quickly!
If the price is reasonable, anybody who stops, you will have to haggle the price with them!
Clean it all up nicely, and make it look good, and it'll sell.
I've sold stuff from $25 to $300. If it is clean and looks nice, starts right up, makes no clanky or funny noises, doesn't smoke, or leak oil, it'll sell. Ya make the price seem like ya want to retire in Florida--you'll be mowing yer own lawn with it!

Thanks for the words of wisdom they will be much heeded. On that note I'm also looking for some helpful hints on acquiring a replacement 21HP engine for my Husqvarna riding mower. It decided to break a rod on me last summer and have been told that it is cheaper and easier to replace rather than rebuild. Thanks again
