I'm looking to purchase a nice cond. WD45 narrow front end tractor, but I would prefer a wide end. What are the advantages and disadvantages of a narrow front end? Can a wide front end fit right on a narrow WD45? Does a narrow get that tipsy? Your opinion would be appreciated. Thanks.

I owned a narrow front WD for a lot of years. Sold it when I moved and bought a wide front JD. I can tell you that I never felt insecure with the tricycle front and it for sure turns easier and shorter. However, where I live now I have hills and I do feel more secure running sideways on a hill with the wide front. I would make the choice on how many hills you have and how tightly and easily you need to maneuver.

Single, tricycle, and wide fronts are interchangeable- remove 8 bolts and one steering shaft pin. Used to be with mounted corn pickers, single/tricycle fronts were needed. No reason to be scared of either front.

If driven correctly a narrow front is just as safe as a wide front. Any tractor if driven wrong can/will flip and the trike type front does tip a tad bit faster but not that much fast either. Trike front's turn fast and will turn a smaller circle then a wide will I own both types and like them both but also use them for different types of jobs also
