Brian, I love this kind of question because it brings out
deap seated feelings. Since I don't have hens to practice on like Nathan does (I must assume he tried to pull a hen off a nest with a WD-45 or he clearly wouldn't have made such
a statement), so I just consult Nebraska to see which tractor pulled the most weight. That should be fair to make a choice
so you don't need any of Nathan's hens. The maximum drawbar
pull of the WD-45 gasoline was 5441 #. The WD-45 diesel pulled
a maximum of 5908 #. The D-15 maximum was 6157 #. So at least in Nebraska. the D-15 seems to be slightly stronger. Also the testweight of the D-15 was slightly less than either WD-45.

Now if the average hen weighed 3# and could fight like the devil,
it might take 10# to get her off the nest. So a D-15 could pull
off 600 average sized hens. That must be some hen that Nathan has!

Regards,

No other tractor in its weight class will out pull a wd-45 unless it is set up with 38 inch wheels or other such advantages. The 226 engine coupled with the tractor's balance, the traction booster system, and that quick governor all add up to a lot of power from a light tractor.

The wd 45 Alice can't pull a hen out of a nest.

Both are 40Hp, but I would bet on the WD45.

wd45 gas with the g226 engine was rated at 37.85 drawbar hp
d-15 gas with the g160 engine was rated at 38.33 drawbar hp
sounds like a tie hp wise but the 226 engine will produce more torque in my opinion, thus it wins!

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
