    Exploring the FORGOTTEN Junk Yard ~ RESCUING OLD IRON ~ Episode 5 P1 ~ Heavy Equipment & SO MORE! - YouTube

    I look at properties like that and want to say it's all worth $50. Then 50 grand to clean it up.

        looks like the property I live on. it will take a parade of double bottom dump trucks to haul all the crap off. the thing is - where do you haul it to?

          People like that need to be sent to a mental ward. This is a mental disease, not anything to be proud of. I bet those machines looked a lot better before he "took care of them".

            We used to have a AG equipment dealer who "Collected" old tractors and equipment.

            Went to auctions and paid high prices to keep the value of his collection up, to try to drive used part prices up.

            All neatly laid out in rows rusting away, would not negotiate lower prices...........

            At the estate auction they were selling it by the row for scrap price or below to get rid of it so the land could be developed into an commercial park.

              Driving to Ohio and up to Minnesota, I see a number places that look a bit like that. Sometimes complete with buildings collapsed on top of old ag equipment.

                  Oh man. Yes, try to save the Onan. Maybe a few other things- but otherwise dig a big deep hole and bury the whole fricken lot of it. Then put a fence around it and have it declared a heritage site. That will be an acre or three of land permanently removed from any potential use.
                  I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                    Looks like the type of place those two American Pickers show guys like.

                      Yep, almost as bad as a show about digging a hole on an island.

                      There are some weird shows on television.

                          There are a few treasures in there, but it has all been sitting in the weather so long you'd spend a lifetime cleaning it up to be able to use it. I would not pay for pretty much any of that, I would only take some of it if it was given to me for free. Spend a few bucks to get the good things under a big quonset hut, or you are left with this. Its a shame, there was some good stuff in there before it went to hell.
