FEL on 520

Recommended Posts

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.

      Hi All,
      Looked on the site (and YouTube) and can't find anything comprehensive about adjusting valves without taking things apart - most are with engine removed I don't want to do.
      Can you adjust the valves with engine on by just taking off the air cleaner unit to expose the valve covers and take the plugs out?
      Can Top Dead Center be found without removing anything else or does the flywheel canopy have to be removed?
      I've adjusted valves on cars, etc and it's easy and straightforward - but I don't want to have to take anything apart that's unneccesary.
      Many thanks!

       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?

      I was talking to my colleague the other day and I knew he had a wheel horse tractor. He was having issues with the transmission leaking fluid and there is a bad hub. But other than that it is in decent shape considering it has 2100+ hours on it. Needless to say he bought a new zero turn and no longer needs his horse so he gave it to me for FREE! He was the original owner and has all the original paperwork. It is a 1991 520h and I am still shocked how quiet it is compared to my Raider 12.
       
      Anyway the good stuff...the pictures.
