As long as they hold air with tubes they stay on duty around here...

I got tired of spinning out mowing on my hilly lot.

Very nice tires. Those old ones were in rough shape although I have to admit I would have kept the old ones with tubes till they blew out. I a;so love those one off powder coated hub caps. They create a nice touch  and hide those weights very well. :handgestures-thumbupright:

Are you sure you live in Virginny Jeff?    That sure looks like Billy country.  :confusion-shrug:

You have some purdy looking Country there to Mow. :handgestures-salute:   I Haven't decided yet about going Agg's...... Don't know if I want them to Scuff up my grass if I want to dump some black dirt around the yard so I am rethinking my stance on the new tires. The 520H looks good with those new SKINS!  :handgestures-thumbupright:

Ed, Thanks I'm only about 10 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, I couldn't live somewhere that didn't remind of home...

Duke, seriously the Ags really don't tear/scuff up any more sod than losing traction with turf tires but I don't have enough level ground to be singing the praises of "turf" tire, there's always the in between "all trail/terrain" tires, and thanks for the compliments and encouragement, Jeff.

Nice Billy... mine are real close to that ... fronts won't hold air at all and the rears aren't far behind and I am just not a tube kind of guy for a quick fix. .... lets just say I didn't have to let any air out to put chains on or off. Going to or would like to do V61's much like what @bmsgaffer is running on the front when budget allows and thinking about a cheaper ag for the rear and subscribing to Mr. Kennell's rubber chains school of thought ....thoughts bout that setup fellas?? Working on gearing up for the ultimate deuce blower. Trying to come up with a combo that would/could be used year round without swapping tire/rim combos.

Just to be clear Jim, I don't have  Ags on any of my working tractors.  I do have a nice pair on my Commando 8, but it is just used to pull a lawn cart and for show transportation.

What I do have experience with is Two link Vee bar steel chains on turf tires and  four link rubber chains on turf tires. 

   And as I have stated before, IMO, The rubber chains have better traction on the asphalt than the steel chains and without any risk of damage to the coating.

An example, with the steel chains, I had to plow my steep drive down hill only and I could not climb the cleared driveway with the plow raised or lowered. I had to circle around to the less steep stone road to get back to the top.    With the rubber chains, I still start at the top and plow down, but I can even plow up with about a 1/2 blade cut. 

On stone roads or grass, I believe the steel chains provide slightly better traction.

As experienced by other members, the rubber chains provide a rougher ride. I agree with this, but I believe this is due to the wider spacing on the 4 link and not the fact that they are made of rubber.

WVHillbilly520H  Nice package with the weight and Ags. That should get it done. I like the Moons with the paint well done.

Gotta say when the paint fades on these tractors they almost look tougher somehow.  Big fan of ags love 'em. :handgestures-thumbupright:

I think those Nanco tires are the exact same as the Deestones. Those look exactly like the Deestones I have on mine. Even the lettering and molding on the side is exactly the same except where the brand is. Mine come out to about 22.5x9.5 as well, although I have mine on the 7in. rims.

I suppose if we could find them in 24x12-12 then they might be just the right size? Jeff.

I like mine OK, but I was replacing 8.50s. I think they make a great replacement for 8.50 turfs, and like you stated, don't tear up turf because they never spin. I have 95 lb. wheel weights in each wheel and can go about anywhere without digging a bit of grass.

      Recently I saw a 98 520H for sale near me for $600. I believe these models are held in high regard but the problem is this tractor is a puller. Its bright blue with leds under it. The deck is there but no belt, belt guard or rollers. Is this a worthy candidate for a resurrection into a garden tractor again? Or has its life as a puller made its future unpredictable and expensive? I have not seen it in person but the pics show it in good condition. I will try to upload some pics soon

      I'm new so please forgive me if anything is out of line. My father was a John Deere Service Manager for 44 years so thats always been my brand of choice. Anyway, long story short... last fall (late fall) I found a 1989 520H on CL. The guy wanted $1600 for the machine w attachments. At the time that was about $600 more than I wanted to spend not to mention the machine was about 55-60 miles away. I was able to get the guy down to $900 on the phone so needless to say it became mine.
      It came as follows: The tractor shows 910 hours (meter does not work) but the machine was clean. I got a 42" front blade, the 48" deck, single stage 42" blower, weights & chains and all the original owners manuals except the one for the blower.
       
      I mainly wanted/needed it for the blower since I'm a single daddy of 3 little people and have a long driveway, not to mention I have a Deere w the same size deck for mowing. Well yes, of corse I realize this is a 30 year old machine but as MY luck would have it, I cleared my driveway 1 time!  Then a hose sprung a leak and quickly pumped it dry so then it didn't move.  Because I have 3 littles (singlehandeledly) I wasn't able do do anything about it until last week when mother nature finally changed moods. I began tearing into it to find the source of the leak. One of the hoses coming from the lift valve is bad. Another hose shows the threads inside from rubbing, so I've decided to replace all 4.  I now have all 4 hoses in my possession.   I have only removed tin at this point. 
       
      Question:  Prob a pretty dumb question for here but....... I have the parts breakdown for the entire machine but is there a place where I can pick up a service manual. I'm a car / light truck guy and am mechanically inclined but is there anything I need to know? I'd really prefer a walk through or a service manual. YouTube (which usually has most of my answers) shows nothing.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Was looking to buy rear hitch assembly on eBay don’t know what is comparable with my ‘84 c125. They all look the same. Is there much of any difference through the models?

      Can anyone tell me how to get at the 9 pin connector under the battery platform on my 520H. I have pulled the battery out and the front plate off the dash (under the gauges) and the left side panel. Do I have to take the entire center of the tractor apart?
