Well, I made a purchase today and will pick the goodies up later this weekend, and YES, I have pictures.
It is a 1974 D-200 (Kohler engine) with a FEL, a push blade that fits on the FEL, a 3 pt grader blade, a tiller, and a 60" rear mower. Oh, there is also a little sun canopy for the FEL. The tractor and the FEL need a little work, but that will keep me occupied this winter. My wife actually said we, yes WE should do a complete dissasembly, repair what-ever, have it (professionally) painted and re-assemble.

What do you think all of this is worth?

Man that will be nice when you get finished with it! What a nice package of attachments! It's hand operated hydro, correct? That's the only hard thing with operating a FEL is when it's hand hydro. Or do these have a foot pedal also? No matter, still a killer outfit!
As to worth...need more details. Are deck spindles free, tiller gearbox operational, cylinder shafts in good shape, and does she run? Lots of variables.
In non running shape (engine free), but other things ok, I'd say an easy $1500, maybe 2 grand. Some may say I'm high, some low, but a package like this is very rare to find in one place.

You fell into the treasure chest there. What a pile of goodies and a wife who likes it too. Good for you.
Does it run or did I miss that?

Congratulations, that's a really nice package deal. Hard to find it all in one place like that.

That is quite the find! Congrats on a good purchase! My estimate is the same as Daniels, 1500 to 2000.

That is a very cool package. Gotta love the implements - especially when they carry the same brand as the tractor.

Congratulations. That is a very nice package. I like that your wife wants it all restored too. That will be nice when everything looks new. If it were listed on Craigslist around me, I would estimate asking would be close to three thousand if it runs. I think it would bring less. I hope you got a good deal.

It runs, and I DROVE IT!
It will need some work, but like I said....that is expected of a piece of equipment that is 38 years old.

Wow, you hit the mother load!! Very Nice, and I've seen what D's go for on ebay, and with all those attachments I'd say 2 grand easy. Some guys have all the fun! :thumbs: My favorite Horse is the C-160, but there is no arguing which Horse is the Baddest, and you own it! :laughingteeth:

Congrats on the tractor! Getting all those attachments is a huge bonus and makes the tractor much more useful and valuable to you as a worker. It would cost well into 5 figures to replace that setup with something new. Sounds like you have a project that you and your wife can do together which is priceless in itself!

That's a great catch! I wouldn't mind owning one of those myself! As to the "worth"... Wheel Horse D-200 with Kohler engine that runs...$650, Original Wheel Horse FEL...$300, 60" 3PH rear mower...$250, Original Wheel Horse tiller...$150, Push blade for FEL...$100, Professional paint job...$700. A wife that says "yes" to all of that...Priceless!!
