I ran across this one today. My first thought was "yeah, good luck with that" until I double checked the "rare" 520-8 part. Turns out they only made like 255 of these (if you believe what you read on the internet)
1 runner that he "uses every weekend", 1 20hp hydro (model# not specified) that needs onan engine rebuilt
and 2 decks and push blade $1750. I can appreciate the rare part, if in fact it is a 1990 520-8, but not enough to pay double what it should be worth.
cut/paste from the ad:
I would like to trade my two wheel horse tractors for an atv or $1750 cash.
The wheelhorse tractors are both 20 horsepower Onans. One is an 8 speed manual, hi/lo with great tires, wheel weights, chains, a dozer or heavy duty snow blade, and a mowing deck. Starts and runs and drives great.
Other wheel horse is a hydrostatic and needs the motor rebuilt but it is all there. Also has a nice mowing deck.
Also comes with some boxes of nos and used parts. There is another mowing deck (not pictured) in very nice condition that goes with the tractors
I have been told that the 8 speed manual transmission model ( made in 1990 , a toro wheelhorse model 520-8 )is rare and quite valuable, I don't know but it is a fine machine and I use it every weekend.
Also have a bunch of manuals that go with the tractors
