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.

      520-H with a 60" deck and 670ish hours. All working and running properly. The only issues with this tractor are that the seat is coming apart and the paint is slightly faded. It has new back tires and runs great. Local pickup in Columbus, IN

       Hey y'all I have a 520 H which has some motor movement. Not sure if this is normal or needs to be tightened up. Any ideas?

      1984 c175 twin cyl, hydro, mow deck, snowblower, led lights, all tire chains, wheel weights, removable tool rack, resealed hydro control, new oils, spare parts. Runs great no smoke no sputter, starts everytime all winter long! 800firm
      1959 suburban 400 potentially original round hood without punched hole from the later year models, has some missing metal from rust. Frame and tranny is good. Took apart to stop the rust and clean it up. Rebuilt tranny with new seals and bearings and moves great! Motor turns and parts all there. Tires seem to hold air and has great potential for lots of arguments as a true 1959. 300
