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? 

Thanks!

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.

      NOS, Original Tractor Co snow cab
      Original Tractor Cab P650CC01 
       
      *NOTE: as far as I can tell, the plastic white top is all that is missing
      Otherwise, the pieces are in good shape, never used - just dirty from sitting.  The instructions and unopened original hardware also included.  Per the instructions this model is for 1990 and up 500 series tractors, although likely will fit / adapt to others somewhat easily.
       
      I bought this with my 520h from the original owner who advised it was never used and from the condition and packaging that appears to be the case.  I will not use it so I am looking to give a good home.  As a side note - the tractor only has 256 hours on it and also has a powered leaf / grass bagger unit (which is not something I see often as far as attachments).  But up for sale here is the NOS snow cab and hardware only

      Hi a new member from Australia here.
       
      I have owned... dare i say it a 14-38HXL for years... the hydro has just about quit so after much searching i went finally found a 244-5!!!!! I love this thing but its had a hard life, its built to last and I can tinker with it. It has a 42" deck that needs some work but that will come with time.
       
      Finally got the engine going but I have some questions re trans/Clutch and Engine:).
       
      This may seem like a stupid question but should I be able to move the crankshaft vertically? The engine runs but vibrates a lot? There is some horisontal movement in the shaft as well but I figure that may just be a lower bearing as I think that a previous owner bolted the electric clutch together and was starting the mower with the blade clutch engaged.
       
      I welcome any thoughts:)
       
      Cheers,
       
      Shobbz.
