I usually try to avoid these opinion questions. There can be enough controversy over facts! But I can't resist. My favorites were the D series. Ground speeds doubled over the WD series with the power director. And I find that I don't want to spend a long time in the seat of my WD45! Just do some occasional mowing with it. 180's and larger were more prone to transmission wear and the resulting popping out of gear going down hill. And the hydraulically controlled power director is not as useful. The 170-175 retained most of the basics of the late D17, I just don't like the sheet metal as well. That one might be big enough to do what you want.

I'm guessing by doubled you me the number of speed options doubled, as in WD's are 4 speeds and D series are 4 speed with a high and low option for each gear. I have a D14 and a 170, and both are excellent tractors that have seen a lot of work over the years. Three generations of drivers and still going strong.

Yeah- I didn"t read that close enough. I was thinking travel speed.

I have an aftermarket seat on one of mine... It makes a world of difference. It has a giant spring on it, and the seat is flat with the ground. For a long legged guy like me, it makes using it a pleasant experience.
