    54" Front Blade Hose Guides (2520)

    I wonder if someone can post pics showing the proper location to attach the hose guides (#11 and #14) in the parts diagram? It doesn't seem I have the manual that shows the proper installation. I have a 2520 tractor.

    The instructions are ambiguous, as I recall, but I'll get you what I have later today.

    JDDave,

    I believe the shorter one (#11) attaches under the floor board (1st pic). See link for some more details:
    http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...ox-blade/page3

    And the larger one (#14) attaches to a bolt on the frame of the tractor (pics 2 & 3). Sorry for not having better pics but this is all I had available at this time.

    I hope this helps,
    lost

    OK, I was able to find this document (see link) which shows the proper installation on the 2520. Now it's clear to me where the larger guide goes.

    I don't think I'm going to drill the hole in the foot rest for the smaller one though. I'll continue to use the hose guide I installed for the FEL - I have it attached to the metal tab hanging down under the foot rest.



    Ensoll, I'm still interested in how you did it.

    Thanks Lost in Wisconsin. I can see how it should be done.

    Here's what I did for my FEL hose guide when I installed it. Not sure this is correct, but the front blade hoses sit nicely in it when I'm using the blade. Is this correct for the FEL?

    Dave,

    Looks like you are headed in the right direction. Here are pics of my 2520. This how the dealer installed them for the FEL and blower. The arrangement is exactly the same on my 2305. I don't think you can go wrong on how you do it as long as the hoses are secure. The big one in the middle is angled to accommodate the FEL stand or it would interfere. Hope this helps.

    Sorry Dave, I looked in the most likely spot, didn't find the instructions there, headed off to the next most likely place, and then my ferrite-like attention span went in another direction. I'll get them eventually, although out looks like you have your answer already.

    Here you go. These are the instructions for installing the Independent Front Hitch which is what is used for a blower, plow, broom, (etc?) but it includes the instructions for installing the hose guides.

    Good point Randy, the larger one in the middle must be angled back if you have a loader. Mine is angled as well.

    Thanks for the follow-up Ensoll. I think the copy I have linked above is a better/cleaner copy of the same instructions. You may want to grab it.

    I appreciate someone's help here. With your help I think I have it setup right now.

    Dave
