  1. 522xi

    Wheel Horse/Toro 522xi for sale. Needs a little work but it runs great. 453 Hours. I don't like to play games, if you are interested I will be upfront about everything. I stepped up to a subcompact tractor and I don't want this Horse to go to just any home. It needs to be with someone that appreciates Wheel Horse.
  2. Looking at a 522xi

    I'm going to look at a 1998 522xi tomorrow. it has approx 300 hrs. Described as like new condition except for slight paint fade. If it is indeed in very good condition, what do you think is a fair price? it is a one owner and was supposedly serviced regularly from the dealer that has it now. It has power steering, deck wash down fitting and the arm rest seat. Thanks for any replies.
  3. Heads up for those in the midwest, there seems to be a good candidate for a project or fixer upper 522xi on chambana CL. I hope someone in the St Louis area grabs it so i can lend a hand an learn a bunch too (i currently own a 522XI). For $400 you get a 522XI with electric issues (wires chewed from mice), plus 52" deck and snow blower. I would be all over this but i do not have the time, money or space right now.
  4. Looking for 522xi snow plow

    Trying to locate a front snow plow for a 522xi. 48" or 52". The 310-8 needs replaced and I'd like to add the plow on my 522xi. Located near CLE and work transport within reasonable distance. Thanks.
  5. 522xi With Extras

    I am moving the family into a new house built on the side of a hill. The rolling acreage that we have enjoyed for so many years is soon to be gone, and so must the equipment used for its care. Sadly, I have no storage or use for my herd at the new location. I have already moved a couple Wheel Horse tractors to some family property elsewhere, but now I am faced with this tough reality. Call it what you may: down-sizing, re-sizing, simplifying, etc... the bottom line is I must sell my lone remaining Horse: the 522xi. This beauty has around 700 hours on the Kohler 22HP V-Twin. Included (not pictured) is a brand-new deluxe adjustable seat, new dashboard "glass", new LED head/tail lighting, new battery, new plugs, new belts, new filters (engine oil, fuel, and hydro filter), and two new sets of blades (hi-lift and Gator mulching) for the large 52" mower deck. Accessories included are a massive and powerful 2-stage snowblower, 48" front blade, wheel weights, and tire chains. For those not familiar with all of the ergonomic improvements over the Classic 300-400-500 Series tractors, here are a few. The 522xi has tilt steering, is equipped with hydraulic power steering, an easier hydraulic lift system, foot-controlled hydo drive with 2 power ranges (HI for normal use and LO for pushing/pulling), electronic cruise control, electric PTO, and my favorite... the cup holder (beer tested and certified). It is a larger and heavier machine than the 520-H. There are some custom additions as well, like a rear frame-mounted suitcase weight and 2" ball trailer hitch. This posting is bittersweet for me. My loss can be your gain. Please feel free to contact me at (810) 919-5693...text message is best as cell reception here is spotty..or email cdsl810@gmail.com
  6. Ode to an XI

    To anyone who thinks Toro ruined Wheel Horse: you have not tried an XI. Yesterday I mowed my grass for the first time with my XI with a fairly junky deck that has re-welds and braces that cause clogs. That is an awesome machine to mow with. The weight of it really gives you a smooth ride and it also allowed me to sidecut my hill (though I will be putting wheel weights on next time, just a BIT tippy). 25HP really allowed that 48" deck to chew through the tall wet grass and other than the clogging (caused by a poorly positioned brace welded in) it just took it all no problem. The electric clutch holds steady and doesn't allow slipping. I was so impressed. The power steering, while not precise, is effortless and you get used to it pretty fast. While it is almost a foot longer than my 520 was, it can turn in a much smaller radius. It was just a delight to drive. The pedals are positioned well and have good feedback. The extra bit of adjustments they added to the deck work nicely and the front anti-scalp wheels are so much better! Getting on and off with no tunnel is pretty awesome too. And on top of all of that, it still feels like a Wheel Horse. Anyone that has driven lots of brands of tractors will tell you you can feel the brand of tractor that you are driving, and this feels like a horse. Will I be selling off my classics? No. They all have their strong points but I feel that the XI is highly underrated by many. I have had this unit for less than a year and I don't feel like that attachments are too hard to come by. I own a NOS tiller for it now, a mower deck, plow, and snowblower. All pretty reasonably priced. Is it a perfect machine? NO. It is still a garden tractor and it is not a SCUT or zero turn. There are of course some things that some companies had that would have made it even better (and aesthetics, c'mon now!), but I can tell you that Toro took the heart of a wheel horse and in almost every way made it better. If the heavy duty, high quality garden tractor were still a feasible market today, I am certain that Wheel Horse would be a top competitor. So thank you Toro for keeping WH alive for all those years and thank you for the XI. That is an awesome machine. Ok. End of ramble... Now... Does anyone have a really good condition 44 or 48" deck for an XI they want to sell?
  7. I am considering repowering my 522xi (for various reasons, but that's not the issue here) and I need the help of some experienced people. Sorry this post is a bit disjointed, I wanted to condense my thoughts without creating a bunch of new topics. I believe that the Kohler CH730 is a near direct fit for the Kohler CH22S that is in the unit, does anyone know this for sure? Best I can tell it is. My first issue is with the PTO shaft. The replacement engine I have a lead on has a (proper diameter) 4" long shaft with a 7/16-20 1.5" deep threaded hole on it, the one that came in the 522xi has a 3-5/32" shaft. I am hoping to run it as is, but it looks like it might come dangerously close to the battery, and I dont know if that 27/32" difference will cause the PTO belts to run all amok. How does the PTO attach to the driveshaft, just bolted straight on? If it is an issue, has anyone cut a crankshaft before? If so, how? Will there be enough threads left for the PTO bolt if I don't have the crankshaft re-drilled and tapped? I called one machine shop that rebuilt my K341 and they said they couldnt do it, but I may check with others. Thanks in advance everyone! I changed the topic title to reflect my project that was based on the original topic.
  8. Hub and Axle

    I am looking to get a hub for a 522XI (the later classics also seem to work). I would need a later model 1 1/8" that has the two set screws and is black preferably. Also I am looking for one or two XI rear axles in good condition. The XI's have matching left/right axles so either is fine. I am going to attempt repair on mine but having an extra is always a smart plan!
  9. CH22 Exhaust Bolts

    I am looking at possibly removing my exhaust to get at the engine better for cleaning it, and also maybe putting some high temp on the muffler. It is pretty clear that the studs and nuts are VERY rusty, (funny, because the rest of the tractor has hardly any at all) and I am afraid they will not come of without a fight. Should I just leave it and deal with it as is? What is the process of fixing/replacing this were I need to remove the muffler? It seems to run really well, so I don't want to dig into it too much, but I want to clean it up to give it a fresh start. There are a few broken off shroud bolts (how do you break those!?) that I need to get at and replace.
  10. 523Dxi w/power steering

    523Dxi riding mower. This tractor has a very strong 23hp, 3 cylinder diesel engine. Starts right up, no need to use the glow plugs! Runs strong, smooth, and clean! She doesn't burn a drop of oil. This comes standard with: power steering, tilt wheel, foot controls, real electric cruise control, working headlights and taillights, hydraulic lift (with down pressure), tilt and sliding seat, rear dual quick hitch, mid and front attach-a-matic hook ups, liquid cooling, hydrostatic drive, high and low range transmission, full dash with lights and gauges. This comes with a 48" side discharge mower deck (pics coming) as well as the mule drive, brand new Wheel Horse 75 lb wheel weights (plastic), brand new 2 link tire chains, brand new rubber Terra Grip tire chains, some extra filters, and a brand new oem 48" snow plow / dozer blade. Note: this snow plow is Brand New and has never touched the ground! You can angle it right from the seat. All paint is factory paint. This tractor is a very rare model being the diesel. The battery is strong, the tires are like new and all hold air with no leaks. There are NO drips or leaks anywhere on the machine. I have the original bill of sale, all the books, brochures, owners manuals and service manuals. If you don't haggle on price I will throw in an extra set of 50lb wheel weights (plastic) as well as another pair of 75lb cast iron rear wheel weights (very rare, too). This tractor was 9k new with the mower deck! All original and in mint condition. Mower deck is solid, I do believe it may need one set of spindle bearings. One set was replaced and has about 3 hours on them. Haven't used the deck in over a year. Extremely clean machine! Graphics are compliments of Terry. The seat is aftermarket and very close to the original design. I have the original seat. As you can see the sun was coming through the trees making some of the photos patchy. There are no dents on this tractor. There are some scratches here and there but the red paint is all original. The red on the underside is superb! With the exception of the seat and decals everything is stock. That diesel motor is unbelievably strong! I have plenty of photos I can email to serious parties.
  11. got #4 today

    So far I have run it about a half hour. Power steering was cool......at first.....then when I began mowing, I realized it is not "tight". It doesn't hold a straight line.... Anyway. 52" deck 800 hrs. The purpose of this post is the next question. the hydro is jerky & odd at low speeds.......lunges & bucks constantly. At mowing speed, no trouble. I would not do forward and reverse work with anyone watching.. It would be embarasing. The previous owner changed the hydro filter, (toro brand)..... Deck lift is crisp and fast. Nothing is getting abnormally warm. (also have a 520xi). I will post pics a little later. I have tried to research these symptoms earlier today, but couldn't find much. Probably wrong search words. I am sure there are a number of (clears throat....) "words" used to discuss this topic. I plan on taking the seat, tank, and tin off, to clean it early next week. Trying to poll the audience to get a game plan. Overall, got a fair deal. KJC
  12. 1998 toro wheelhorse 520xi for sale. Has 20 hp Kohler engine and 48" deck. A local toro dealer has serviced it since new and just serviced it as well. fresh tune up and new blades. This is a monster of a lawn mower. Hydrostatic drive with hi/low selector. Hydraulic deck lift, electric pto clutch. Has gas gauge and oil temp gauge. Everything works great!
  13. I think that's what I heard her say! Or maybe in not so many or the same words. But I just had to! Saw it in Craigslist, saw the price and bought in the dark last night. Got some issues but I drove it up the ramps! Haven't had time to unload or really check it out, yet. Funny part, I live in NY and this was an hour and a half into Vt. We get it all loaded and 10pm or so I head back but stopped to fill up. Just me and another car at the station and the other driver gets out, asks me if he can look at the tractor and then proceeds to tell me it's history! What are the odds? It does need a ignition switch but he tells me the rear leaks real bad and will need a heavy duty hub kit. Maybe axles. I didn't know they had any issues? "Hub kit" And I was surprised to hear maybe axles. He says these "xi"s rears are not fun to work on either! Well, hard to get at. Not what I wanted to hear but for what I paid for it, it really doesn't matter. 522xi 48" deck weight box 17cu/ft (I think!) Toro trailer
  14. Decent Buy?

    I just picked this up. Its a 1998 522Xi with kwik-way Front End Loader. for $2800 the hour meter is showing 327 hours. The guy claimed to be the original owner. Im new to the wheel horse's but very much becoming a fan. In my eyes Its a great little tractor. I just was curious if was good buy as I couldn't find anything to compare it to for sale.
  15. NEW HORSE!!

    Just got it home 3 days ago and since weather isn't very nice out for pictures all i can show is it in my cramped up garage... I will definitely post more pictures of it cleaned up and looking good this spring. Came with a 60" fab deck and i went and picked up a 42" single stage snow thrower for it today.
