    Tell me about the D-160

    I have had more then my share of C195's, and if you make the belt for the rear PTO slip or brake, you would have also made the belt on a D PTO shaft break or slip.. The C195 is a wonderful machine. I have had 8 of them.

    Seeing Double D's whats not to like?

    do we have an area?

    Now all of this information is just my opinion. When you say large, do you mean D series ? If you do, then the condition means a lot as far as value, and then comes the extras like a rear PTO and 3-point Do they run? But a junk D series 160 180 and 200 series is worth 2 to 4 hundred, and a real nice loaded up one can bring as much as 3000.00. Now if you are talking D250, well that's another ball game, The D250's in junk condition 3 to 6 hundred and a nice loaded up one maybe 25 to 32 hundred. and if you have one with a loader, well the loaders them selves can bring 1200 to 1600 .

    D-200 making of a fuel tank

    No on the suspension and no on the pressure test, I left it full of fuel over night and no leaks, good enough for me.

    D-200 making of a fuel tank

    No the seat moves back and forth that is why I slanted one side of the tank.

    Best model for garden plowing, tilling?

    Best all around to me would be a C160.

    D-200 making of a fuel tank

    Made a fuel tank for on of my D200, 1/8 in. plate. And no leaks. 3hours and some plate that was laying around. It hold about 8 gallons of fuel. It bolts to the sides of the fenders and don't sit on the bottom of the tank.

    Saving a D-160

    The tank is what draws me to them. They remind me of long ago when my dad had bulldozers and a huge tank was on the back of them. 60+YEARS ago
