I herd that the hand clutch was the weakest point on the WD WD45s, is this true? Thanks JMD

Even the two disc units are plenty strong. The three discs will lock up at least a hundred hp. The pto will not transmit that much.

JDM I think you were told wrong, in everyday use they are almost impossiable to destroy. Are you confusing the AC with IHC????

If your WD has a stock 2 disc hand clutch unit and your engine has been upgraded to WD45 power your hand clutch unit should have been upgraded to a 3 disc WD45 stock unit.

if you are going to pull these tractors the hand clutch is the weakest part. the first thing to get rid of when making a puller cause if you build much power it will slip. take it out and couple it back together

That is incorrect, the PTO is the weakest part. Do not use a hardened shear bolt

Never had a problem with a PTO in a WD-45..BUT...

You MUST NEVER try to engage the PTO unless you are standing still AND have the transmission IN GEAR 1st...

Most are damaged by grinding the gears, trying to put it IN gear...Breaks the gears, or the Ears off the lower Idler, above the driven PTO gear..

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.
