 First off, welcome aboard.  This is the best group of guys out there without a doubt.  Secondly I agree with everything said above.  Grab both as they are both sought after machines. 

Also :wewantpics:  of the D250.

Welcome to GTtalk Donnie, yep if you can afford it get both of them.  Remind the owner they are just sitting taking up space.  :thumbs:

Welcome to GTT, Donnie!


The other is a Wheel Horse D250 with a renault motor


Is it right, the engine is from the big french automobile factory RENAULT? Otherwise I agree with Brian, take both or the WH. And, as heard thousand times before, pics will be nice :camera:

Welcome to GTTalk and it really sounds like you should try for both.  After all, you only get a chance to buy once, but selling is always an option.

Welcome! I like old MF partly because my Dad had a couple. I also like GTs with 3 point because Dad had one with that. Like the guys said, if you can swing it buy both. These guys can help you through most any GT question.

One thing I remenber about a Renault Dauphine that I had is a big vent for the float bowl that sucked in a sliver of wood that blocked the main jet.  It was a downpour at the time and my dad pushed me home with his Ford 2 miles.  I was so mad that I tore it down that night and just stared at the splinter in the jet. 


I had the same thing on a 50's outboard.  Don't keep engines in a woodworking shop.Q!!!!!

Thanks for the great welcome guys ! I am going to try to get both. lol. Ill se If I can get The MF 16 first ,cause its got the Cab and snow blower plus I can mow with it ! That Wheel horse has a huge mower deck on it and mows great! it does bog down some if grass is really high but I think thats because the deck is so big! The MF 16 never bogs , although Ive never abused them cause Ive got brush hogs for that purpose. I think this is the first time Ive been excited to go back to work in a while !! lol. I am assuming the three point and hydraulics work ok on the d250 Ive never used them.
