Will a D17 3 point setup work

I just just purchased a point setup that was used on a D17 that hooks up to the bell under the tractor. I had planned using it on a wd45. The 3 point setup seems very heavy. Will it fit a WD45? If not I will need to resell it and find one that works for the WD45. Or could I modify it?

Thanks for any replys.

Merry Christmas

I interchange the same AC snap coupler 3-pt unit from the D-17 to the WD-45. Same unit fits both exactly. This unit has its own top link. I've plowed with it carried thousands of round bales, etc.

As part of the WD/WD45 three point mod, there is a thin clevis that simply fits over the standard WD rockshaft. The toplink attaches to the clevis. You can easily make one out of strap iron. It would be hard to find a ready made clevis that would fit because there's not enough space between the rockshaft and the tractor's differential cover. You can see what I'm talking about by doing a search for WD 3 point hitches. In fact I think they might sell that clevis as a seperate item. I put a muffler clamp on the rockshaft on each side of the clevis because it tends to slide to the low side when you're cutting hillsides.

If your only use is for bush hogging or shredding, the top link is not necessary. I have the top link attachment on a most of my tractors but I NEVER use it. If you are planning on grading or pulling a scoop, the third link is mandatory.

As the other poster said you will need a toplink attaching point for powered equipment. It is 2 clamp like pieces that goes on the round rockshaft, that the lift arms rotate on, bolted to the center of it. For non powered equipment like discs, plows, blades, there is a round piece with flat ears, that goes in between the 3 point lift arms, you hook the toplink there. I believe the 45/17 kits interchange

The "snap coupler" system is the same from tractor to tractor- that being the "bell" underneath and the two lift arms. Your issue will be a different way to anchor the top link of the three point hitch.
