Is a wheel horse 520h a decent tractor for pulling?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am looking at a wheel horse to convert to a pulling tractor. I have the opportunity to purchase a 1988 520h. Would this be a good tractor to pull and is this a good tractor overall?

I don't think it would be the best candidate for a competitive pulling tractor. If it is just for fun and you are basically just going to keep it stock and add sum tires and stack sum weight on it then have fun. most pullers seem to stick with standard transmissions and the 520H is a hydro.

       Cleaned up another old Simpsom loader laying around and mounted it on a 520H . I think it came out looking good. I have had at least 6 of these Simpson loader and I think they are great. all new fittings and hoses and stripped to bare metal, and painted, 125 lbs. of rear wts on each wheel, need to clean up bucket yet. It lift at least 7 ft. Love the 520's for loader tractors, easy steering and plenty of power.

      I'm looking for a rear axle for my 520h.  Anybody have one?  I have a loader on the tractor and this is the second time I broke the axle.  I would consider a complete rear end.

      520H is dead. Things I've tested so far. I've jumped a wire from + battery to blue wire on starter. It cranks over good. I cleaned safety switches, starter, ignition connections. I notice if I jiggle or slowly turn key the lighted board will come on. A couple of times the tachometer reset itself.
       the lights will not turn on. Is it possibly the ignition switch?

      Selling my brand new, never used, Toro model #79364 48" plow. Looks like the day I took it out of the box. The only thing I did was assemble it and lubricate moving parts. Grease still looks like new. Local pickup only.
