Question Home Gardener Roto-Ette HG-1L Help!

I have a Roto-Ette I think it is 1947. On transmission case is HG-1L. I would like to know if anyone can tell me the value of this or if it is restorable. I also have a Furrow attachment that came with it back when it was made. Any information would be great! Being a female I know absolutely nothing about this equipment. Thanks and have a great day.

Thank you, I have viewed this website but it didn't tell me what I needed to know. I am looking to find out if it is worth any value or restorable. I do have photos for viewing if anyone needs to view them. Thanks again

If you mean value as in one-of-a-kind machine,---no, if as just a personal addition to a garden equipment collection, then depending on its current condition it could be worth a FEW bucks, not much, but a little!---thanks; sonny

I think Sonny pretty well explained the facts -- I have three Roto-Ettes -- all run -- one has the Mower attachment. The most I have ever paid for one is $100. They are really interesting machines--odd design, but well made. Enjoy it for what it is.
