  1. 520 two stage snow blower crank support

    Thank you again for the reply. I may have more questions as I mount the blower this week. Eric
  2. 520 two stage snow blower crank support

    Thanks for the reply. Eric Yes, this is a great help. If I can't find one I will make one. I do have a question, I noticed that in some pictures the crank rod goes through the support and in your set up you have a bracket that mounts to the support tube and the crank rod attaches to the extra bracket. Can you tell me why? Eric

    Ok, I bought a two stage snow blower and it did not come with a chute adjustment rod support tube. Does anybody have any leads on one of these? Eric

  5. Snow blower questions

    I have another question. I am looking for a two stage snow blower for my 520 with the swept forward axle. Do I have to find a blower that came off a 520 with the swept forward axle or will others fit? Eric
  6. 520-H deck/520-HC deck

    Here is an update. I bought and installed a 60" deck and used it today, I'm so glad I upgraded. I am happy that I found a deck with wheels on the front of the deck. I attached some pictures of the before and after. I do have a question, when I lift the deck it seems like it's not going up level. The front of the deck s higher then the rear, It's not level. I had the same thing happen on the 48" deck that came with the tractor. Any idea's. Now I need to replace the hood assembly. Eric
  7. I finally got one: 520h

    You did good on that buy. If you don't have room to store it I would be happy to use ......sorry I meant store it for you. Eric

    So it's safe to say this is why they added the louvers on the hoods. You would think they would have added some type of air duck work to the cooling intake just to get cleaner air away from the mower deck.

    Thanks for explaining why some decks have front wheels. Thanks for all the replies. One thing that I have noticed while mowing this weekend is the Onan cooling intake loves leaves.
  10. 520-H deck/520-HC deck

    Sorry for all the questions. I attached two pictures, one is the front axle, is this a forward swept axle? I also attached a picture of the ID plate. The serial number is going to be a challenge. The tractor has a 48" deck now. Any thoughts on the HC deck with the wheels mounted on the front? I would think it is a better deck compared to the standard deck. I would like to find a two stage snow blower if anybody knows of one. Eric
  11. 520-H deck/520-HC deck

    Thank you for the replies. I have attached some pictures of the tractor that I bought. A little history on this. I bought it at an auction and this machine came from an upstate NY prison and I paid $320.00. The hour meter reads 12xx hours. It is rough but it starts and runs fine, seems to cut great without any smoke and the hydraulics work as they should. Cosmetically it can use a paint job. Can you tell from the pictures what type of front axle this one has. I can get more pictures if needed. I'm still hoping to get a 60" deck.

  13. 520-H deck/520-HC deck

    Hi everybody. I just signed up but I have been visiting Redsquare for years. I just bought a 520-H so I am new to wheel Horse tractors. I would like to change my smaller deck for a 60: deck and I found two decks both in excellent condition, one is from a 520-HC and the other is a standard 520-H deck, The HC deck has what I am calling anti scalp wheels on the front edges of the deck and the standard deck just has metal skids on each front side. My question is will the HC deck mount on my H? I like the adjustable wheel compared to the metal slides. Is there a difference in the metal thickness on the two decks? Any input would be appreciated. Eric
