With a lot of hesitation I am offering up my hard working, reliable 520Xi. My growing small farm needs required me to get something with a FEL.
I bought it five years ago from the original owner. I have all the original documentation and Operator's manuals for it:
Model year 1999
60" Mower deck model 78395
48" Dozer blade (model 79355) with all the Rear Attach-A- Matic parts (part number 100-3390)
Rear TORO wheel weights
New AG rear tires and front Turf tires
Couple of extra PTO drive and deck belts.
Starts up strong and runs great no leaks, no smoke, does not burn oil, regularly maintained.
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
