Very nice!

Maybe I should put my loader on my 520 instead of the D-200!

I have had many small Loader in the last 15+ years, most on wheel horses, and by far the 520H with gear reduction steering & swept forward axles are my favorite. The D's are strong but maybe a bit clum'sy, and steering is always an issue with the D's.

Nice job Larry, as usual.  I have an Ark550 on my D200 and you are right. Steering is a bear.  Would the 550 be too large for a 520? I also have a 520xi that may do the trick.

 

I didn't realize that you had to be a member of the subgroup 520 club to post, in case anyone else is wondering why you can't post to this topic.

Todd, The 550 Ark will fit the 520's I  have ad a few in years gone by, I mounted them all, just make sure your uprights are as close to the rear wheels as possible, this helps take the strain off the front end when it rises the higher the loader shifts the wt.  to the rear wheel and that's where you want it.

      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

      I changed the oil/filter on my 520H last fall. I only put 4 hours in the tractor last winter. The oil is still golden-brown in color. It's looks new  Should I change the oil and filter again?

      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?
