WD45 Questions

I need a smaller 30-40hp tractor with 3point and PTO.

A WD45 is coming up for auction near me, and as I know about nothing about these tractors, I had a couple questions perhaps somebody could help me with:

Did all the WD45's come with PTO? Are the output shafts "standard" ie I can attach a pto shaft from a modern attachment?

I understand they had snap couplers as opposed to 3 point, assuming I can find a conversion kit, will the converted snap coupler/3point attach to and LIFT any standard 3 point attachment?

Is the parts availabilty still reasnable with these tractors? Anything to know/check when considering one (out of the usual leaks, cracks, smoke etc)

Thanks for the help

Make SURE the PTO operates and is not broken (gears)...

Yes all WD45 came with PTO.
Yes the output shafts are all standard.
3 point conversion kits are pretty easy to find or make, however they are not all created equal. Some are made for category 2 implements, others are for category 3 implements and some work for both. They will all lift whatever the tractor itself is capable of lifting. Max height/reach of arms may vary by a few inches.
Parts are still pretty easy to come by: AGCO, TSC, and NAPA are probably the most common places to find parts but basically any ag or auto parts supplier has at least some parts for them. Overall there is nothing much to check for outside of what you mentioned. The only things I would add is check that BOTH clutches work properly and that the boot on the shifter is not broken.

Today's Featured Article - Upgrading an Oliver Super 55 Electrical System - by Dennis Hawkins. My old Oliver Super 55 has been just sitting and rusting for several years now. I really hate to see a good tractor being treated that way, but not being able to start it without a 30 minute point filing ritual every time contributed to its demise. If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
