thanks
joel

bontai Joe Go to www.google.com and do a search for Wheelhorse D 250 tractor and you will get a lot of info on where to get parts and attachments. $400 sounds like a great price if it runs and everything works.
joel i was wondering like horse power and drive also. and so is it really a d250 he told me it was a 250 and when i seacrch i got alot of things for d250 and i though it was it.
thanks

bontai Joe While searching yesterday, I found a picture and a little info, but can't find it today. What I remember is it has a Renault 4 cylinder engine and was larger than the typical garden tractor. Your best bet for accurate info is one of the online wheelhorse clubs where collectors and owners can help you out. I am afraid my specialty is older John Deeres. I based my statement on the $400 being a good value as the tractor is large enough to operate a front loader and serious ground engaging attachments.
joel where do you think i could get an old junky john deere. i like to work on things so i want somehting that is going to be a challenge. i also dont want to spend alot of money. i wanted a really old one though. i have seen some picture of old ones and they are awsome looking. do you have any behind a barn or anyhting with weeds growing around it that is really old. thanks
corey jacobs We had purchased a wheel horse D-250 about a month ago and got all of the attachments. The horsepower is about 30 horses. The driving on it is great. I know this becouse my grandfather and i are collectors. I am only 14 years old. We own about 32 tractors.

Dale The Wheel Horse D-250 actually has a horsepower rating of 19.9. The three point hitch a catagory 0, was an option.

It was the only 4-cylinder, water cooled Wheel Horse made. It is sized more like today's compact tractors, weighing in at 1169 pounds.

The rest of the D-Series ranged from 16-20 horsepower with either a single or twin cylinder air cooled engines. Some were Kohlers, others had an Onan in them.

Marvin McConoughey I bought a Wheel Horse D250 new in the early 1980's and owned it for several years. The Renault engine is a slow speed (3000 RPM) version of their smallest car engine at that time. It is an excellent engine when used in the D250. As a much higher speed car engine it had marginal reliability. The engine is probably underrated for horsepower. Mine was very smooth and quiet.

The transmission is Ok but is very complicated. It is bolted directly to the rear axle. I had some problems with the rear axle and with the pivoting front axle shaft through which the power drive from the engine goes.

As I recall, the actual tractor, minus the French engine, was made in West Germany.

Overall, I liked the tractor but found it a bit awkward to operate due to the manual transmission. I moved on to hydrostatic tractors and never regretted the move.

Tim Shue V.P. of WHCC I have a very early 1976 d-250.The tractor was designed in the USA assembled in Belgium.The rearend is German.The motor is French.The steering and electical is Italian.I am in the middle of rebuiding the steering box and I am having a hard time getting bearings.The company that made those type is out of business.I am looking into machining the shaft to make newer bearings work.I is a good tractor.Made a head of its time.Wheel Horse makes no parts.
Tim Shue V.P. of WHCC Napa is a good place to get parts for the motor. Other companies like BobCat,forklift companies used that same motor.I am interested in knowing if any one else as one with rear fenders made of metal.Mine is one of the first to be made with them.I also have aearly 1955 RJ-35 with the gas tank stand.I hope to have it at this years Wheel Horse show in June.I collect D series and round hoods.

John Hander Hi, I am trying to decide wether or not to buy a wheel horse D250 or D200 and am leaning twards the D250. I guess my biggest question is, is the 3 point hitch a category 1 or 0. Also if it is a category 0 can I change it to a category 1. The reason I wnat to change to a category 1 is so I a can use a bush hog. I saw that king kutter has one that I belive is a category 0, however even if this is so do you think that the tractro could handle a bush hog. I know it can handle a finish mower but I really want a bush hog. Also is the D250 the largest wheel horse made.
Theo Does your friend still have the D-250? If so, where is he from?

I am looking for one.

Thanks,
Theo

Re: Info about the D-250

I have a 1987 WHEEL HORSE D-250 tractor and it is indeed a very nice machine. It has a 20HP Renault 4 cyl gas motor with a 10 speed tranny ( 4 high 4 low and 2 reverse). this tractor has alot of torque and can pull just about anything. U can put a blade for pushing snow and soil, a snowblower, a rototiller on the back, a 66" mower deck underneath, a front loader, and a backhoe attachment. the mower deck is raised and lowered with hydralics and so is the three point hitch and the plow frame on the front. the D-250 is the biggest tractor made by Wheel Horse that stopped production in i believe it was 1989. the D-250 is not 4wd but has an axle lock option to drive both wheels when needed and when not needed it only drives with one wheel so it does not leave any marks on turf but will give lots of traction so u can drive it just about anywhere. U MUST handle ur Wheel Horse very gently because it is VERY hard to find parts for. This tractor is in my opinion the best tractor made in that year and i still use it today. This tractor is NOT for sale but I can give anybody who needs any information on the D-250 or the attachments can contact me and i will be happy to help.

bob i have several books email with any questions if you buy it and want to sell it ill give.you a god profit

Roger I am in S.C and have two D-250 Wheelhorse tractors. One needs the steering wheel thrust bearings. Like the rest who have this problem, they can't be found. A machine shop told me that mylar bearing or spacers could be used. The bearings are meteric and come from Italy. The other D-250 is in good shape and if the offer is good enough I would sell both. The one with the steering problem has a new engine in it, with less then a 100 hours on the engine. I have the old engine out of it. It has a rod pushed out the side of the engine.

jim clark Hi, the Steeing box in the D250 bearing are hard to find. Tim Shue V.P. of WHCC mentioned that he was going to have the steering box machine to accept other bearings. Did anyone do this or is it still an option? Does anyone know where to find the original because they are like hens teeth to find. thanks, Jim

I am helping a friend to find parts or possibly a complete used mower deck for his wheel horse. The deck is a three blade, model 5-1010. He needs at least two shaft assy's, or might consider an entire deck.

Thanks

faye pare I have a wheel horse mower with the motor between the seat & the steering wheel. I think it's from the 50's. Does anyone know what this is worth?Good mechanical condition but needs painting.
Oilcrazy The D 250 was made between 1976 and 1981. Approx 2000 were sold in the U S. The guy that has the 1987 model should check the serial # again and see when it was really made.
