    Next mod was to the 46 backhoe station. When the ROPS goes down it hits the operator handle guards??? And appears to have worn the paint off.

    So real easy fix- Cut two pieces of rubber hose, slit them and installed at interference point.

    Next Mod- The 2520 was delivered with the 49" bucket. In my mind I was expecting the 53 but the 49" works well in the woods. And it made my decision to swap the 49 off my 2305 which has a spill guard, D-rings, and fresh paint a easy decision...

    The spill guard thread is here - http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...ill-guard.html

    More to come...Later

    Received my used 2520 with the usual damage. Small ding in hood and punctured radiator grill
    My 2305 had the same damage...

    Moving brush, logs around is one of the biggest uses for my tractor.

    So welded up a brush guard for the grill area. Used a perforated sheet instead of the expanded sheet. Last line of defense for the 1/4" sticks.

    Believe I am done with front brush guards! I hope!

    Looks good! I think all brush guards should come like that.

    But then you wouldn't spend $$$ to replace the grill mesh?

    Mixed up some paint today and touched up some paint chip areas.

    Noted the parking stand was chipped and rusted. So cleaned it up and installed a piece of green
    coolant hose to protect it in the future.
