Lawnmower junkyard

I stopped by a lawnmower junkyard looking for a pulley for a fairly new mower. Well, that was a waste of time.

It looked like they dumped mowers from the sky about 30 years ago and never added anything. It was a huge pile of mowers. Saw quite a few of the 2-stroke Toro's there, untouched, and some old Lawnboys. Most of it was antique stuff with flatheads.

I don't know how you can see anything in the picture. The original is much larger. The yard is in New Ringgold, PA. Multiplied thousands of units. There is another nearby; Ray's in Boyertown, PA.

The only thing I remember was seeing a lot of Toros with Suzuki motors, untouched. I don't think there was anything newer than 15 years old.

They offered from the yard - rider for 20, push\tiller\blower for 10, as is.
