Just committed to a Wheel Horse/ Toro 520H. Real nice looking tractor has deck with two small patches on it. The patches are not all bubble gum and bird poop, they look well done. The rest of the deck looks to be in good condition. 926 hours on working hour meter.  Has nice hub caps and all. Started and runs well no smoke. New oil change and hydro fluid change. Original tires are nice no dry rot and have decent tread. Belts look good and PTO functions properly. What would be a fair price. Sorry don't have any pictures But this tractor is clean with decent decals and even decent paint. Ill let you know what I committed to after I find out I didn't make a goof. LOL

Thank you hoping all goes well. It seems if it has a deck and get's to my place its going to die of some bazaar unfindable malady. The JD 345 is awaiting a ride to a new home for that infraction. Then the little new out of the box push mower won't start after about at best 10 hours of use. Thinking its a diaphragm in the carb. Was really expecting a little more use out of that one before it needed a wrench.

On the up side the Wheel Horse 1267 purrs like a kitten and pulls like a draft horse. But as afore mentioned no deck.

520's are great tractors. Keep the rear cylinder clean of debris and it should last a long time.

Well I got it home and its everything I hoped it would be. Even though the grass was wet and tall it cut like a dream and that gear reduction steering id the bomb. Thanks for the heads up about the rear cylinder. I read that else ware also.

All in al I'm real happy in the $750.00 I invested.

Can't wait for pics.
Sounds like a very nice machine.

At 750, you're good if as described & you'll outlive two throwaway tractors.
