It depends on a couple things. What you want to do with it? And how much are you willing to spend?

In a WD45 if you're looking for rarity and power, go with a diesel. The diesels have a 6 cylinder engine compared to the 4 cylinder gas. They will be more expensive though. Other then that, like what was said earlier, just make sure your getting a 45 motor in a gas tractor. I think LPs are rare too but don't know much about them for comparison against gas.

Not too many things beyond the normal tractor stuff like rotted rear rims, smoke, water in oil, etc. The shifter forks wear and can cause them to get stuck in gear. Hydraulic pumps get weak but can be repaired. The biggest thing to look for is make sure it is a WD45! Lots of hybridizing over the years. The transmission should have a curved shifter (I know late WD's had that too) and there should not be a big (7"X20"?)metal plate bolted to the right side of the engine. The WD engine, with less hp and a little less value, has that plate.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
