Last year while I was at my MiL & FiL's last Christmas I found a WH D-250 with a Ark 500 loader on it for sale just a couple hours away near Chattanooga, TN.. I contacted the seller and to my surprise it was still for sale. Sent him the money and asked him if it could stay there til I got back here to pick it up, it was the only time I didn't have a trailer with me. He said it would be just fine and he would keep it under the shed til I could get it picked up. So today I finally got it picked up and can look it over to see what all it will need. The best part of the whole deal is that the Ark 500 loader is the same loader that Bush Hog used on their JB model tractors. The tractor is pretty rough, but the loader cylinders are in great shape as is the pins and the bucket. Even got all the manuals with it in a binder.
