just picked up a wheel horse 520 h, original owner, new tires and battery, mint seat, no deck but i have 2 or 3 that will fit, overall in very good condition, just paid the asking price of $300, thought it was very fair and it has the chrome hub caps that i love

i have to agree with you there, a 20hp kohler would be nice, but even though i am not a onan fan when they are running good they are a good motor, i have a friend who swears buy them but he does his maintaince, changes his oil, does a pre warm up and idle down before shutting them off. once they start giving you trouble, take them fishing, they make a good anchor. ha ha ha

Great score on that one. Thats a great price, when I see them for sale around here they usually are asking $1000 or more. I think the WH decks leave one of the best cuts on grass.

Nice find. Those are rare in my part of the country They bring at least twice that if one comes up for sale locally.

thanks; it was a great buy. the only reason i post what i pay is for others to use for reference, but i have also copied other members ads and taken it with me when negotiating on a tractor, theres lots of tractors out there, some way over priced as some owners dont really have a clue and are listening to the so call know it alls, you know they'll never sell and end up in a scrap pile, but sometimes an ad can make them see reality and its a win for you and the tractor, so happy hunting, post what you pay so others can benefit, what pos want and what they get are sometimes totally different and it gives the rest of us an idea what are treasures  and junk are worth thanks all
