I need help Identifying my wheelhorse tractor model number 105109 I don't know how to read it
Here’s a walkthrough video I took today.
I recently acquired a 520xi. She's a pretty sweet machine and I took a liking to her before she landed in my garage. I've used her a few times this spring to haul some brush around in her trailer.
As the grass grew taller, however, I knew it was time to put the deck on her and start mowing. Note: this is my first wheelhorse, and also this was the first time I'd mown with her. Anyway, I did about half an hour of mowing (about half of my lawn), having turned her pto on and off a few times for various reasons, when at some point I turned the pto off to back out from between the dead-end swath between 2 trees I had just mown. I backed out, turned around, lined myself up to get back on track with the mowing, pulled the pto knob, and....nothing. Or so I thought at first.
There is a quiet, though definitely present sound whenever I pull the pto knob on. At first I thought the blades might be stuck or something and the drive belt was sliding on the pto pulley. After some inspection, I found it wasnt. I prooved it wasn't by taking the drive belt off the pto and trying to turn the pto on. I still hear that same sound and the engine acts slightly stressed when I turn the pto on.
One last thing. I turned the engine off, took the front grill off the tractor and tried to turn the pto pulley. It moves but is stopped by some kind of what looks like a safety stop (a bar on the pulley hitting a bar in the way).
Anyway, this is where I'm at. If anyone knows or has any idea why what's happening is happening and/or how to fix it Id appreciate it very much.
I recently bought a 520xi lawntractor (got it today, it's sweet!)
But I figured Id look for a snowblower while its off season. I found a few, but I'm not sure if theyll fit.
One is a model# 79263 it's close to the model # listed on toro site as fitting the 5xi. Will it work?
I found 2 tractor I'm interested in buying.
First let me give a summary of their intended uses:
I just bought a house on 1 acre of land. It is not flat and has many medium to low degree slopes. Primarily I am interested in its mowing ability, but also tilling and snow blowing possibilties.
Now to the tractors....
The first I found was a 520 xi kohler 20 h.p. engine with 380 hrs. Comes with deck and trailer.
I talked the seller down to $1800.
The second is a 270h kohler 20 h.p. engine with 73 hrs. Comes with Deck. Seller asking $850.
Both may go soon would appreciate quick response. Thanks!
