Wanted, Front Grill for Toro Wheel Horse 520XI. All of the XI series models have the same grill. Will also accept a grill from a New Holland GT18, 20, or 22. Thanks

It ain't cheap but I found one. I'd call them to make sure it actually is available before ordering. New $230


Used one $150:

Thanks for the info, but this is a plastic grill, not even gold plated. Before I would spend anywhere close to these prices, I would make my own. This is not a rare collector tractor. I guess I will just wait for one to show up on EBay. Have seen them in the past at a reasonable price. Thanks for trying.

Yeah, I ran into this with my 266H. Broken grille and new or used costs > half of the tractors worth.

Wrongdoug and I were talking about the 520xi as he was looking for a great GT and it would fit the bill.

I agree but the production volume is so low on them that parts are hard to come by and expensive when you do buy them.

On my 266H I ended up pop riviting aluminum plates behind the grille and hood and grinding the cracks and using 2 part plastic epoxy (the stuff in the 2 sided syringe) and fiberglass cloth to repair it. It worked fine and the repair held up well.
