I don't know what the specs say,but we have a couple of guys in our antique tractor club that pull them and they start out at 3500# with no weights. That would put the tractor at about #3300 Lbs. Hope this helps.

Don't know, of course, but perhaps that reflects the price he buys in at and the price he sells out at, ie his profit?

If the scrapper could get $750 each for scrap, he would've scrapped them by now...

Ask him what they weigh. He weighed them when they came in. The yard I deal with, will tell me. If I buy one out of there, and he didn't have any labor invested other than unloading it then loading it for me, he'll tack on 50 bucks and it's mine.

Depends on who this scrapper is? If this scrapper is a private individual then $500-$600 is probably about the max he would get at a local scrapyard.

That said if the scrapper is a scrap yard itself then $750 or more is probably about right. Remember the scrap yards do get more money for the stuff they sell as compared to what they pay out for the stuff they buy. Basically they are only buying iron to turnaround a resell it for a profit. Certainly not unreasonable for the scrapyard to expect the same profit they would get for an item as sending it to the smelter would produce.
