Common ObstaclesOld lawn equipment is full of hazardous materials. Oil, fuel, emissions, and so on. Not to mention, the old, worn out metals. And, of course, things like hard industrial plastics. The fact of the matter is, lawn equipment is something you’re supposed to use to the end of its life then discard. (Which is part of what makes lawn mower junking so difficult to do.)
When you’re staring at a yard full of grass that desperately needed cutting two weeks ago, the last thing you want is a lawn mower engine that won’t fire up. Most of the time when a lawn mower, snow blower or any small engine won’t start the cause is a problem with the gas or the carburetor. —Family HandymanOf course, this begs the question of what to do about it. As we’ve clearly established, it’s a tough thing to offload. Much like worn-out fitness equipment that’s definitely seen its better days, there’s not a whole lot of good options. However, this doesn’t mean there are no lawn mower junking options available.
Lawn Mower Junking in EnglewoodNow, let’s get onto how to deal with any type of old lawn equipment. Here are some helpful lawn mower junking options you can try out:
- Fix it. Instead of spending a bunch of money on new equipment, go the cheap route. Do some easy maintenance to get more life out of it. Check the filters, change the oild and fuel. Give it some TLC and squeeze more work out of it.
- Sell it Another solution that can be somewhat worthwhile is to sell it. Publish a local online ad and sell it as a bundle. You might find a lawn care service who will take it off your hands and give you a little money for it.
- Give it away. If it is in good, usable condition, a local charity or school might want it. If you find success with this option, be sure to get a receipt to use as a small tax write-off.
- Junk it. Of course, if it’s just at the end of its life and you don’t want to go through the hassle of disposing of it, you can call in a junk removal service to take care of it.
