The D's are the BIG DOGS in the Wheel Horse line up.  When I see pictures of Wheel Horse tractors that i like, I save the pictures.  This D is not mine but the pictures are two of my favorites.  It was restored and it did belong to one of our members at one time but I lost track of which one.  Not sure if it is eligible but since we all like pictures and this is a beauty I will put it up anyway.  I think this D looks awesome with the big snow blower on it.

 

:text-coolphotos:   Jack C that is a nice "D" , but I can't vote another person's tractor.

There should be plenty of D250s out there.  Don't be bashful.

PJ's D200 looks like a solid worker.  Those fuel tanks on the D200s are impressive.  I like that seat and with that light on the back it looks like it is also set up to work the night shift.

This 79' D200 is the essence of what a Garden Tractor is to me. I got it for a song and with some work have gotten it to where I need it. It is very reliable and gets the job done. I have a tiller, snow-blower, 3pt. cultivator, 3pt.box blade, 3pt. pallet mover, 58"snow blade, 42"dozer blade, and a 48" mower deck. I don't use the snow-blower or mower deck but everything else gets a workout. Its big and ugly and I like it that way. 

 

Thank You to Trouty56 Bob for posting the pics. My wife said between her and the kids they would teach me how to do it. :handgestures-fingerscrossed:

Hi everyone, figured I would add my 79 D-200 to the list I purchased it about a year ago from someone here in Massachusetts. It was in pretty much the condition it is in now just had to change fluids/filters and remove and flush fuel tank replace lines, filter, pump and a good cleaning. The tractor runs and works great very useful machine. This is the first time posting pictures here hopefully they come out alright if not I will try again.wheelhorse468_zps271a9847.jpgwheelhorse465_zpsc2c61ab2.jpgwheelhorse462_zps901fea4a.jpgwheelhorse458_zpsdfdeff50.jpg

18 Automatic still in process of a "restoration" (resto-mod) is more like it. A before and after picture. I would have posted more pics but file size was to big.

Here are some more pics: (You can click on image then select "Go to Comments")

Don't forget Andy in England (wheeledhorseman).  He has two D-series.  His restorations were really informative.  I'm sure he'd be glad to add to the fun.

Here is my worker D200. All original except I installed an electric fuel pump. The pump, hydro motor, and transaxle had to be rebuilt.

Had my arm twisted by a couple of you guys so here's my D-200 in the UK

Just finished it in time for the first wheel horse round up over here back in 2012.

This is the task that it spent most of its time on this summer - getting rid of weeds in the grazing.

 

To save picking up the  'What deck's that?' question - I modified a NOS 500 series deck I managed to find over here.

The tractor was a bit of a wreck (understatement) when I got it and certainly would have been parted out on your side of the pond but they're rare here in the UK so I had to work with what I could get.

 

Many thanks to all the guys (you know who you are) who helped in so many ways during the resto process.

 

Andy
