Help! My neighbor has an AC snap coupler type plow. We are trying to figure out how to hook it up to his WD 45 tractor. We don't know much about this type of setup. There are a couple of arms laying on top of the plow. It looks like they hook onto the plow somehow and then hook into the arms on the tractor somehow. The drawbar on the plow has a ring on the end. Does this get connected to the tractor drawbar or do you take the tractor drawbar off? Does anyone have pictures of this setup?

The U shaped clamp that is bolted to the end of the drawbar, remove it from drawbar and bolt it to eye in plow. Then hook it back to tractor.

The BEST advice to you is to UPDATE the WD Hitch (cross Bolt) to a true "Snap-Coupler", with the Latches on the rear arms.. Many, many were converted and (if you are really going to USE it) SHOULD be, if not already done.. They are MUCH Safer and handier to hook up and drop.. Yes, you drop the drawbar off and the AC Implement attaches where the Drawbar was.. DO try to put the "Snap-Coupler" on..you will be Glad you did.. Unhappy things can happen to you, with the Old-Style Cross-Bolt setup..and the rear arms cannot let-go if the front cross-bolt comes out.. VERY Dangerous...we don't want to hear that anyone has been injured...!! Ron..

Your WD will handle 3-14".. Looks like you have a 2-14"... Not sure where the rear wheels would need to be set for a 2-Bottom plow... Yep, you sure will be able to pull that one..!

That plow attaches with the snap coupler system, I suggest you look over in the photo galleries, to see more, attached to tractors. Important thing, is to pull the drawbar out, by releasing the spring loaded pin, in the bell housin, then back up to the plow, and listed for the click, and snap, as the eye sets itself, in the coupler. Then connect the shorter of the lift arms, to the lift latch above it, then nudge the hydraulic lever, till the other arm fits into its latch, and click them both closed. Most important thing about the plow linkage, is to let the lift latches dangle, down below the plow, and double them over, at the pivot yoke. If your plow barely lifts off the ground, and the arms are all the way up, you don't have the arms short enough. Hope the long description helps.

What 504 said, plus to attach the lift links of the plow you need the lift arm latches for the tractor. The very early WD plows had cast brackets that slipped over the lift arms, and were held in place by a bolt. YOU DO NOT want to use them! The lift latches (which so many inaccurately refer to as "snap-couplers") will release with upward pressure if the snap-coupler (ring) somehow gets unhooked, while the cast brackets will make the plow come up the backside of your head. Never saw it or heard about it, til on this board. Could have been a problem with the original "pin hitch" on the WD.

Draw bar comes off, plow goes in,then hook up the plow arms to the lift arms on the WD.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
