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.
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!!!
So I'm going to ask the WH "Lions Dens" opinion on this one?
As the story always goes I was searching 'that for sale site", usually looking for that rare old round hood and I came across this ....1997 Model 520xi Toro Workhorse, Number 73540 Kohler 20 hp, engine, Eaton 11 Hydro, 2 speed Uni-Drive® transaxle with a hydraulic lift 52" Side Discharge Mower. Seller is asking $600 and is selling due to moving from larger property to a small property across the country (He is the 2nd owner and has maintenance receipt's back to 2002 when he bought it. Last fall it had +$300 of service, (belts, blades, engine & transmission oils & filter changes. It runs good, no smoke, and has a few paint scrapes and the hood bottom front piece is broken, seat has cracks, tires seem good, Eaton transmission seemed to work OK but I did not get to get it hot and spin the tires with it against a tree, deck appears solid, reportedly garage kept.
I really don't need a 52" deck and would end up putting my 42" on it. I'm a little concerned about all the electronic circuits on it (I sort of like the simplicity of my older 312 and C-160)
I have a John Deere LT150 as my mower tractor that I could sell to my sister and almost be no money out of pocket. I've only physically seen one of these, so I'm a rookie on these later model WH's! I 'm on the fence of why this one interest me, so here's my questions:
1. Am I correct it does not have the "swept front axle"? (I've read most 97's do not)
2. It does not have power steering....would I regret that?
3. Am I correct that my current attachments that fit my 1985 312-8 (42" deck ,long frame doze blade, grader blade, and tiller) will fit this tractor (since they fit all 300, 400, 500 series tractor)?
4. WH are somewhat rare in my area which means there usually a little pricier, but they all do show up for sale over time. So if I want a newer model should I be holding out for power steering and a swept front axle?
5. Yes I have the WH addiction, but do ya'll see anything in the pictures and price that I'm missing
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.
I have been searching but cannot find an answer so thanks for your patience. I am getting my 1999 520xi with the Kohler Command engine ready for Spring. Changing all the filters and fluids. I cannot read what is on the inline fuel filter. Last time it was serviced by a Toro dealer so I do not know what they put in there.
Thanks in advance
