Runs and drives good. Recent engine oil and filter change. Also new air filter and fuel filter. Has Onan P220G engine with no record of any engine work done. Has 1829 hours on it. 60" deck is probably about 200-250 lbs so is built nice and heavy but missing belt guards. All gauges work perfectly. Seat has tears in it can put on a seat cover or just replace seat. Missing indicator light decal. Headlight bezels not on in pics but NOS pair will be included. All lights work good. Missing steering wheel cap and throttle knob at this time but if that's the deal breaker I can get them. The difference between the 520-H and 520-HC is the HC has heavier duty steering, faster ground speed, wider front tires, armrests on seat, and not as many indicator lights. Also the 520-H couldn't be bought with a 60" deck. Anymore questions just ask. Thanks

Scary, isn't it. When you are of a "vintage" age. My son likes to give me a reality check somtimes. Dad, you are OLD! But I still think I didn't get to middle age yet.

I thought we as a group were dedicated to rebuilding and keeping them running? What do you want, a new Toro?

Well what I meant was to rebuild that engine you can bet it will cost a grand to rebuild it just to start. If he needs to get 1100 for it quick parting it out could keep several going and get him his money. Onans are nice but not when ya got to rebuild them. I love mine but it will be parted out when that time comes.
