Sounds good! Should make the mowing go faster. Less seat time, though!

The 520HC was built 1988 - 1989 to be used as a commercial unit. It has the swept forward front axle but not the gear reduction steering. If you can find a gear reduction setup, grab it! You'll thank me later! The 520HC also has different pressure setting in the trans that allows it to travel just a touch bit faster than standard 520H's. Although they are not a "rare" machine, they are desirable.

That's a great looking machine OPK! The ags really look mean on there. A 500 series is on my "wants" list for some day. Thanks for posting the pics! Just for future reference, you can put the pics directly into the post by clicking on the "More Reply Options" tab at the bottom Right of the reply box.

Wheel horse GT's are good solid machines that are easy to maintain. Hope you get years of use out of it.
