Gonna have to guess (for me) on this and say based on the era New Idea was actually building loaders it most likely should. Short of somebody posting on here actually mounting that model loader to a 520 I would take a ride to where this loader is located (within reason) and get measurements as to the width of the frame as pertaining to the tractor, the drop and length of any rear bracing, and location relative to tractor of any cross bracing. Remember that unless you want it to stay original you can modify the loader by welding or bolting additional steel to it to get it to reach the key points on the 520. Also, remember that the flywheel and belt pulley protrude away from the frame a little on the 520 which non-Deere's don't have that issue so observe when looking at the loader if there will be interference from those two components. I tried googling that loader when I first saw your post but no luck. Now that I have stuck my neck out sure as heck there will be a hit or two on that loader

Would help to know what tractor the loader came off of.If another 2 cylinder,It should bolt right on.A picture would help.As NY saysIt may or may not.A lot of loaders are 'universal'Mounts are what determines what tractor it 'fits'. Do some measureing. If you can weld/fabricate,you can make about anything fit.For $100,I think I'd buy it. Especially if it is in good shape. If it doesn't work,you can easily get your money back.

They show mounting brackets in the parts book for the loader so it should fit.

Dave,something to ponder.Last year or two,I took a 'junk' Johndeere35 and a 'junk' Johndeere46A,blended them together and made one good loader.I pd more than $100 for each of those.LOL Then I made some mounts for my SuperM and then made it into a true 'kwik tach' loader. 5min on,5 min off.Then this fall,I made some mounts to put it on my m/400 'frankentractor.(the two trators are different enough that they required different mounts.)Yes,it's a lot of work,but what else is there is there to do in the 'off season' but work in the shop.So go for it. Enlist a buddy to help. Have fun you will be proud of the "I did it myself" project.

Depends is the short answer.

More complicated version. Do you have a cutting torch, Welder, metal saw and drill press. and skills? If yes to all of the above then you can make it fit if needed.

If you are hiring this work done make sure you have the proper brackets etc.

I did this for a guy a number of years ago, the whole story is a long one but after my labor and a full set of hoses and valve he wound up with $1000 invested in a tractor and loader that were both given to him.

If I was doing it for myself and the end result was what I would have wanted I would do it again in a heartbeat. If I had to hire it done it was a poor investment. Half the bill was for parts.

as noted, those New Idea loaders were made to be adapted to many makes and models of tractors. I have a 504 (hydraulic dump) NI loader on my 3010 after being on a 656 hi utility, and a 504 on the 4010 that came off a Massey 175. the only real thing needing modifications was hooking the front loader brace to the tractor frame.

Thanks for all the input. Got the loader for $100 and got it home. Good news is I may be able to do the work myself. Loader came with a operators manual. Must have came off of a tractor that has holes in the frame like a IH. Anyway it came with well built braces that can be adapted to fit the holes in my 520. Can?t wait till spring ( my shop has no roof or sides ).

Can't go wrong for 100 dollars if the cylinders are good and the metal work is not busted up.

I bought a Farm Hand loader from a guy for $5. (I have never figured out why he didn't just give it away.) It was set up for an AC WD45, and I redid it to fit a JD 630. I parked the 630 on a level concrete floor, and blocked up the loader so the frame and bucket were also level. I fitted brackets to mate the loader to the tractor and used it for many years, until I found a Deere 45 loader. The Farm Hand loader was harder/slower to put on and take off.
