  1. The Diesels Day to Play

    Today my two diesel tractors finished this year's mowing season. With leaves covering the ground, I needed to fertilize for the last time this year. A portion of my front lawn was torn up a few weeks ago due to having an underground fuel tank removed. Because of where the tank was buried, the contractor's two trucks and backhoe made two routes to the tank's location. A lot of the lawn needed to be reseeded. I added 10 yards of topsoil to help the new grass along. Of course, we had 22 days without rain so I needed to sprinkle every day! Using "Paladin", my 523Dxi, I first mulched the leaves so that the fertilizer would be applied to the ground and not the leaves. It is nice having power steering as I ran wide circles amongst my trees so that I wouldn't tear up the new grass. Then it was my DC-105's, "Dillon", turn to pull my broadcast spreader. Some nice seat time! Now to get the 523Dxi ready for winter. Of course, I was supervised the whole time.
  2. Hi , As I have been unable to find a replacement for my rotting 52" attach-a-matic deck in the UK I would welcome any advice on modifying a brand new JD 54c deck I have obtained. Looks like a good prospect by grafting on the lift arms from the old deck and double stacking the front pulley on the JD deck which should put the drive in the correct position. Will have a better opinion when I gett both decks together in the workshop ?.
  3. Sorry to see this go but in preparation for our retirement move next year I am selling my 1998 523Dxi, "Paladin." It has the Daihatsu DM950D engine that is actually a 26 hp engine but advertised by Toro as a 23hp engine. Later year Dxi tractors came with the DM850D which was 23 hp. It has power steering and cruise control. In the three years I have owned it, I have actually used it very little. It only has an additional 18 hours since buying it and the meter is now at 624.0. I used it one winter for snow throwing and part of last year for mowing. It is my favorite tractor and would have used it more. But I have the other tractors to use as well! It has always been garaged and the battery kept on a battery tender. It has Mobil 1 10W-30 in the transaxle and Amsoil Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel 10W-30 in the engine. Wheel lugs have been changed to wheel studs and nuts. Although one picture shows ags, it is on turf tires. Included in the price is a 60" mower deck that I bought to go with it, a Johnny Bucket-brand Sleeve Hitch with the optional suitcase weight hangers, a drag/scraper blade and a custom made Hitch-N-Can for the sleeve hitch, and a 2" receiver. It has new decals by Terry, and was wired by the PO for towing a sprayer. Great tractor to attach a front end loader.
  4. Finally Some Snow!

    Finally it looked like Winter was going to arrive today! This - after the daffodils and cherry blossoms were already blooming. But, the line moved further North and the sleet and rain took over. We were in the 8-12" forecast range but was actually 4-5" of wet, wet snow and a lot of sleet. I have to admit for this snow storm I wish that I had a steel edge on the plow instead of the UHMW.edge. It had a tendency to "ride over" the ice underneath. I always wait until the county plow comes by before going out to do my neighbors and my driveways. It was nice to have the second cab on the plow tractor considering my other cab never got installed this Winter!. With the 25-30 mph wind blowing I hardly felt the weather while plowing for two hours.
  5. Hello everyone, I NEED HELP! I came across a gentleman that is selling his whole Wheel Horse collection to clear out his garage. This is what he has: ($600) 93 520H, 1400hrs runs perfect, 48" deck. Torn seat. 20hp Onan. Has owned since new. He says it is a gas guzzler. ($1000) 01 520xi, 2889 hrs (key must have been left on). 20hp kohler. Looks in good shape. tight and shows little wear. Starts, runs fine. only a puff of smoke at initial start-up. minor Hydro noise, but it was 25 degrees out. comes with 78363 48" deck, 42" blower. ($500) additional 60" xi deck, clean, no rust, original ($1000) 268h with 360hrs in the best condition of the 3. ($1200) 52" Z-master zero-turn with 600 hrs. ($500) 02 520lxi for parts, running. ($3500) for everything above. I am upgrading, potentially from a Deere GT225 with around 500hrs. The GT is uncomfortable, and the 42" deck is small. I have hilly terrain and about an acre of grass. I need the tractor for snow removal and mowing only, in addition to hauling a trailer to/from the woods. I have a 1981 1710 Ford tractor with a FEL, PTO/3pt, and back blade for big jobs. Please steer me correctly. Tell me what to look for specifically, as I am new to Wheel Horse. Thanks for any/ALL input!!! -Eric
  6. 5xi Pulley Issues

    I have a Wheel Horse 5xi that threw a Idler pulley and tore up a belt. I bought a new pulley and belt, installed and adjusted. 2 minutes into mowing I threw the other idler pulley in the box. What am I missing? What am I doing that these pulleys are walking off the shaft? Thank in advance for the help. Aaron
