Scrap copper electric motors for some extra spending money. Usually they aren’t too hard to find considering almost everything electric has one. Taking out the copper electric motor in home appliances that are no longer of use can benefit you and your wallet with the current Electric Motors (Copper) Scrap Prices. Electric Motors (Copper) will be a heavier load than an aluminum one. The copper ones are the most common electric motors used because they do such a great job of conducting the electricity and power through the appliance they are used in. We don’t suggest taking electric motors apart for the copper wire unless you have dozens. The time you will take to dismantle them may not pay off at the scale of the scrap yard. If your company just dismantled some A/C cooling units or generators from an old building, take them apart and get to the electric motors to make the most out of your hard work. Keep yourself up to date on electric motor pricing by using the iScrap App to find your closest scrap metal yard and their price listings. See more Scrapping Videos here.
