  1. Maybe selling my 520XI

    Howdy folks- Thanks for all your input. I really liked the Mahindra's but lack of good local dealer support I had to pass on them. I did find a great deal (13K) on a 2017 Massey GC1715 with 72hrs, 60" MMM and a FEL with filled rear tires.. I pulled the trigger on it this weekend. The only thing I was not keen about is the entire seating area shell (wheel wells, etc) is thick plastic. Something I had not noticed before. Overall I think it will be a great tractor for my needs. Now that I have it next to my old 520, the poor old horse looks dull and washed out in color. What do you folks use to clean and shine them up? Thanks again and Merry CHRISTmas Semper Fi
  2. Maybe selling my 520XI

    Thanks for your input. I went to look at the Kubota's today, particularly the BX2680. Very nice, ergonomic and smooth. Only thing I am not sure about is how sturdy it is and the single cylinder bucket system. It almost Seemed like an overbuilt garden tractor as compared to the Mahindra Max26 I also looked at, which seemed more like a "real"tractor". I understand the Mahindra is more in line with the B series Kubotas but not sure if I want to get an eMax. I also stopped by the local Massey Ferguson, very nice..decisions, decisions.. Semper Fi
  3. Maybe selling my 520XI

    Ok, great thanks, that is what I was thinking. When did they start adding emissions stuff to these machines? What years should I be looking at? Happy Birthday tomorrow!! Semper Fi
  4. Maybe selling my 520XI

    Howdy- Thanks for the replies. I just found a 1999 Kubota B2400 (the other one was sold ) with 1350hrs on it for 6K. It does not have a FEL but does have a 60" mower deck. I figured I could save from buying a newer one and attach a FEL to it. The gentleman bought it used (he buys used tractors and sells them on the side). No service or use history. He said everything runs as it should. Not sure if this is a lot of Hrs. for a Kubota Diesel engine but the lack of service history concerns me. Anyway thought on the HRS for this machine? Semper Fi
  5. Maybe selling my 520XI

    Nice, thanks. The fellow that is advertising it emailed me and told me he would sell it to me his 2016 eMax251 for $13K. That seems pretty good deal with a FEL and a Belly mower with only 25hrs on it! He said nothing wrong with it just the house he was getting fell through and he ended up with a smaller property.

  7. Maybe selling my 520XI

    Thanks for all the feedback folks...I used to have a Kubota B7800 so I am kind of leaning to the B25x. Someone around here has one for sale for $16500 and it has 105hrs on it. Semper Fi
  8. Maybe selling my 520XI

    Howdy all! For lack of being able to find a FEL for my 1999 520Xi I am thinking of upgrading to something that has one. I have been looking at the Kubota BX series as well as the Mahindra emax or Max series. They seem compatible in size to my 520. Does anyone haveany experience with these? I love my 520 but more and more I seem to be needing a FEL. I have the 60" deck and a plow. Semper Fi Andrew

    Cool, no worries. I was placing an online order and figured I would try to get everything in one shot. Semper Fidelis
  11. Howdy folks, I have been searching but cannot find an answer so thanks for your patience. I am getting my 1999 520xi with the Kohler Command engine ready for Spring. Changing all the filters and fluids. I cannot read what is on the inline fuel filter. Last time it was serviced by a Toro dealer so I do not know what they put in there. Thanks in advance Semper Fidelis
  12. I am also looking for a transmission filter for my 1999 520XI. What is on there now is a Rotary 6680/Wheelhorse 79-5270. I crossed checked and a Baldwin BT8486 or Baldwin BT8301 came up as well as NAPA 2205 and 1410. Any ideas which are good one? Baldwin is only $10 on Amazon Do not mead to hijack this post. http://www.oilfilter-crossreference.com/convert/TORO/79-5270 Semper Fidelis
  13. To Sell or not to sell

    Understood. Good tips. I have done some research and the prices are pretty spread out. Anywhere from $2000-$4500. I was also shocked to see what the prices for just the Attach-A-Matic stuff runs! Semper Fi
