Now that we are finding more uses for the 1990 520H with a KwikWay loader I am experiencing some power loss in the hydro after about a half hour to 45 minutes??????
Kwikway loader that is currently on my 520H (Tractor not for Sale) with custom quick attach for switching between bucket and custom made pallet forks. The sub-frame allows it to fit some other models as well.
I designed and built the pallet forks and quick attach setup several years ago. Just remove 1 pin on each side to switch implements.
Forks are adjustable and removable. 2" box receiver built into fork rack
Also included is a custom rear axle suitcase weight bracket that holds up to 6 of the 43lb weights
You can bring a tractor and we can install it on your tractor here or bring a trailer and I can load onto a trailer for you.

Here's another one I'm saving from turning into a toaster or a microwave oven.The guy said if I didn't get this by this weekend he would scrap it! Mostly good for parts . Believe it or not it has 800 hours on it. Hopefully the motor and trans are not toast!
I just got home from looking at a one owner 1989 518h with 412 hours on it. The guy says it always only cut grass,nothing else. It's been sitting inside for about 5 years now. He said the fuel pump was giving him trouble,so it sat and he bought a new zero turn. Four tires are flat,it's missing the steering wheel center cap and one plastic headlight bezel. The machine itself looks actually really good and should clean up nice! The engine looks very clean,the cylinders were bright aluminum colored. The rear end was pretty wet on the outside but the dipstick showed full and very clean as well as the motor oil.
Can anyone tell me any good/bad sides to this tractor? I know it's not even CLOSE to the 520. I know most of the notable differences. He wants $300 firm,and says if not it can stay put,doesn't bother him a bit. Is this a good price? I have feeling i'll be doing a LOT more to it than a fuel pump just to get it going. Any input is appreciated guys,thanks!
Doing some yard cleanup today & put my 310-8 loader tractor to use.
My wife got the shot of me in the dog pen with the corny smile....notice the hat?
I had a pretty decent load of lime stone rocks in the bucket & wanted to see how bad the steering would be....not bad.
Once I upgrade the front tires & add the gear reduction steering I got from Kelly it should be really nice.
I picked up the Kwik-Way at Steve Myers Service in OH, friend & member Nick857 let me know about it.
The weight box came from another friend & member, Derek Workman.
The 310-8 was one I gave my dad years ago to mow & plow snow with.
He's not able to do the work anymore so I brought it home last summer.
It's all dialed in now...well except the front tires & eventually the easy steer.
Should be real handy with snow removal, mulch, river stone & whatever else needs done.
Maybe build a set of forks for it next spring too?
