Christmas Day Storm with FEL

Recommended Posts

r1jakecfd

Didn’t get to swap the loader out for the 44” 2-stage snowblower and cab on the 520-H before the Christmas Day storm. I had the engine out to redo the top end (decarbon, clean and reseat valves, New gaskets, New fuel pump, tubing, filter, plugs and properly seat camshaft Welch plug) so no time to switch over before storm. It’s just another excuse to use the loader! Merry Christmas everyone🌲🎅🏻

Did I mention how excited I was when I took off the heads and the valve seats were all intact and seated solidly?!? Whew! 👍😂

Used my loader to move some snow a couple weeks ago and played with it Saturday.  Can't wait for good weather.

      Selling my trusty WH520H.  ~880 hours (currently used for moving snow when needed so hours may rise) very solid machine, strong and hardworking.  20HP Onan, hydro transmission and hydraulic lift.  Has Matt's foot-pedal conversion for forward/reverse.  Included in the sale is a tall-chute snow blower and 60" mowing deck.  The blower is in excellent condition and is on the tractor currently.  The mowing deck has been a workhorse over the years.  No holes but could use some TLC, probably needs new spindles at some point and could use a couple spots touched up with welder also does NOT have any pulley covers/protectors (see photo).  Tractor has been an incredible tool, very solid and dependable and I'm certainly going to miss her when she's gone.   
       
      Recent maintenance: replaced the plugs this summer, fluids as needed (hydro has about 100 hours on fluid/filter; oil was done in the spring and has about 25 hours on it).  Battery is about 3 years old as are the tires, Terra Trac tires on the rear and turfs on the front.  The seat (with arm rests) isn't in great shape.  I've got a cover for the seat, never used.  It's never really bothered me but new seat cover is included in sale as are 4 hub caps, chains for the rear tires, and some misc spare parts (see photos).  
       
      I've owed this machine about 8 year and put ~350 hours on her.  She's not a show piece but could be restored.  Sheet metal is generally in shape, no rust however the hood does have a couple dings in it.  
       
      I'm only selling because I'm trying to help my son get a small lawn care business started and looking to move to a zero-turn.  The 60" deck is too large for our trailer, the mowing deck lacks pulley safety shields, and we'd like something that mows faster.  My only complaint with this machine is the top-speed (which isn't great when comparing to today's machines) otherwise she's a beast.  They don't make them like this anymore.

      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.

      Has anyone found a good source for gold plated (not the thin plated stuff) male/female connectors?
      And/or weather proof connector housings?
       
       I’m still not sure if this was under engineered, or they didn’t think the product would last this long (couldn’t envision the Wheel Horse Collector's Club)

      Anyone have creative ideas / designs for building an economical generator for 520 tractor?  I have always wanted one and contemplated building one a time or two before.  I have only found a few used models over the last 20 years.  Recently saw a new old stock unit on a tractor on Instagram.  It was pretty awesome!

      Hello everyone!  I am going to replace the ignition trigger on my grandfather's 520.  Any tips, tricks or important things I should know before starting?  I already have the parts.  I just need to tear into it.  
       
      I didn't know Cummins owned Onan.
