The AC WD-45. Quite possibly the finest tractor ever made. Tremendous power and reasonable traction with small wheels. These tractors outworkedr their contemporaries. Tractors such as the JD A or 60 and 70 and the Farmall M's and super M's A WD 45 can outpull an 8N on two cylinders. AC took a basic design that began with the WC and perfected it in the WD45 You won't be sorry, especially if it already has the 3pt conversion. Am considering purchasing a WD45 to use a general purpose tractor for non farm 200 acre property. Currently using an 8N but sometimes I need more power and 3pt lift capacity.

: What do people think of this machine? Is it good for GP work? What are the known mechanical pitfalls of this tractor?

: Is leaking oil everywhere but I thought it might be an easy tractor to do my first tear-down. I know the guy who is selling it. He says it is a good runner that does not burn oil and hydraulics work well. He will probably sell it to me relatively cheap. It has a 3pt on it.

: Thanks

I suppose their are always going to be some who disagree, however, my first introduction to the WD45 came in 1958 when my Uncle bought one to replace his Massey-Harris #22. The WD45 has been on the farm ever since and today it runs almost like new. They are simple to work on. Relatively inexpensive to repair/restore and should handle most of the jobs you have in mind. I like them to much I just bought another one -- they suit me fine. Of course, I never used it to pull a hen out of a nest, but then again, who would!

My great unlce has one that has been on the farm ever since my great great grandpa farm and it is a really good running tractor. Plus it has not had any major maintance but still runs like a top. It has done just about anything you can think. From sawing wood to grading the lane,plowing the garden, hauling hay and etc. So i would say that the WD45 is a good pick.
Where did the chicken come in must of been a realllllllllllllllllly stupid one .
