I got a 49 WD this winter and after getting a bit of the spring bug I decided to see if I could get her set up to do some plowing. I have a 2 bottom 14 in. 3 pt. plow that my WD 45 will pull just awsome. But the poor WD I cant get it to hold the slack in the lift arms there pulling up or leaving slack and cant get the weight trasfer to work. the plows just keep sinking and the old girl turns into a wheelie machine. thanks for any help

I want to thank everyone for all your help. I think I figured out my issue. Someone (me) adjusted the side arms on very very uneven ground. i adusted the one side up a little and now they slide in but level out at about 10in.and the ole girl has no problem at all even in this lovely ohio red clay. Its amazing how that little adjustment made a world of difference, even though my furrows probobly wont win any awards its good enough for a potato patch.

Yes I know what the beaming and winging adjustments are for since I plow competatively with a #63 plow. Beaming levels the plow fore and aft and thereby controls depth of cut, winging levels the plow laterally and has a great affect on the eveness of your furrows. I cannot coach you to be a good plowman here in a few lines. Good books and videos on the subject are available, try googling Diamond Farm books. jack

You will be much better off to go ahead and up-date that hitch to the "Snap-Coupler", along with the releasing knuckles on the lift arms.. Most were up-dated (for Safety reasons)..!! All WD's could be retro-fitted with the Snap-Coupler.. You should never need any weight transfer with a 2-bottom plow on a WD..they would pull 3-14" about anywhere if they have good rubber..

How can I explain this, possible that the front point of the plow is pointed down too much, try adjusting so front of plow does not suck it further into the ground--level plow so it is not pulling deeper into ground.

upon further inspection the 3pt arms dont hook to the drawbar like I thought they did. Also i have yet to find a set of plows for the old style hitch for the wd since it dont have a snap coupler and every thing ive found so far is for snap coupler. does anyone know what the beeming and winging adjustment is that is in the operators manual? thanks all the help.

Email me if you're close to S.E. Ohio. I have a set of the pre snap coupler 2x14s with coulters that I'd be willing to let go reasonably priced. My 52 WD has snap coupler & I don't need these. Keith

If you have a 3 pt conversion that does not hook into the Snap-Coupler, or the WD pin hitch, you will have no weight transfer. Some conversion are made that way- works ok with a blade, mower, etc., but not for the plow, where you want weight transfer. That system works through the hitch and spring underneath the tractor. WD has transfer capability, just no gauge to show the relative amount being transferred.

what kind of 3 point hitch adapter does the wd use? Does the hitch let the weight transfer function work?
