Hello All:

 Guess I'm kind of new here signed up some time ago but never did an introduction so here it goes.

 I'm retired now was a manufacturing engineer for 40 years, was laid of a few times back when, So I started a stump grinding business( 20 years ago) to fill the money gap when I was not working. I had a Jacobsen GT14 tractor to start with at first with quickway loader ( which was a very good tractor also) but the it was to light to pull for the stump grinder (2000lbs). I did stumps at a house and saw a D-250 with a loader in the back of the house covered up asked if was for sale, he say his father got it new in 1976 cost $6500,and his father passed away and he had no use for it so he wanted $1500 for it so ended up with a D-250. It has been a working tractor ever since. then pick up one with plow again 1976 for parts but put it back together and use it. I sold the D-250 with the plow  a couple of years ago because I retired from business all together but still kept the D-250 with the loader will restore it this year I hope. Lately I just pick up another 1976 D-250 for parts.
