Posted this over in "tractor talk" forum too..

My question to you all is. How do I scrap a tractor? I haven't had any luck with for sale ads and now I need it gone.
I have read about scrap prices and people selling scrap on this forum just need to know how to go about it. Do I contact a auto salvage company or a scrap recycling place or somewhere else. What kind of money should I look for?
Thanks for the help..
Before you ask.. it's a 49 Case DC 3... in northern Illinois..I need it gone. ASAP

It ran a few weeks ago.. I just haven't started it for awhile. Plan on giving it a go tomorrow. I am working long hours lately with Sundays off.
I am in N.E. IL. In Lake County.
Thanks for the help and interest.

Back to the original question, it is not that hard to scrap. As will be obvious when you get to the yard and see some to the people who do this for a living. Seems like this is a cry for help. LOL. But if you are serious about not knowing how to do it here goes
Llook in the yellow pages under scrap metal. Find a few facilities and call them. They will have different prices per ton for different grades of scrap (heavy prepared #1, prepared #1, light sheet are the common ones). Figure out what yard is paying the most. Talk to the guy, they may come get it if it is big enough (you will get screwed but hey it will be gone), for more money haul it in yourself. For even more money cut it up with torches into pieces smaller than 2 or 3 feet for the highest price and separate out the tin, copper wiring, brass bushings. And copper radiator and wiring (the copper radiator may be like 3$ a pound). People get stars in their eyes and think that that old dozer or tractor is worth more in scrap than retail. And they are right, IF it is prepared. If you have never cut something up, and made 20 trips to the scrap yard, and waited in line and argued with the scrapper then this may be a great character building experience.

I was thinking about the sraping one, and relized that once it is gone it is gone for good to the world only to be melted down and put to some other use.In honouring the history of the tractor I would donate it to a F.F.a. or community collage where some one else could learn about it and our past.and you get a tax dedution for more than a scrap price. just my two cents worth.
