The 520H is a nice garden tractor. Don't know much about them though. You can also try posting in the manuals wanted thread in the garden tractor forum and someone might be able to help you out with a manual. Welcome to GTtalk

:wave: randyrhel Welcome to GTTalk! It's great to have you here with us! All I know about the 520-H is that it's a beast of a machine! The 500 series tractors could handle the larger attachments such as a front end loader and a power angle front blade. I believe that you could get a hydraulic implement lift on them too. We'd like to see some pictures when you get the chance! Thanks for signing up!

Welcome. Glad you are here. The 520-H is, as previously stated, a very nice machine. I'd also like to see pictures of it.

You can go to https://lookup3.toro...est/request.cfm and get manuals. Just enter your model # such as 41-20OE01 that is for a 1990 and enter none for serial#.

What is the model number of this 520-H? If it is 1991 or newer a serial number is required at Toro.

According to the toro site, it is a 1989 model with a 20hp onan, so that helps when looking for manuals and parts. It was probably one of the last garden tractors uilt by Wheel Horse or one of the first built by Toro. Since I found it on the Toro site, might be a Toro, not sure when the changeover happened. Thanks for the info.

I have a 1989, a 1990 and a 1991 520H. The 1990 and up have decals with Wheel Horse and Toro on them and the 1989 has Wheel Horse only. A 1989 520H would be a model number
31-20OE02.

You are exactly right, it is a 1989 with that seriel number, no toro markings. That helps a lot.
