I concur with the recommendation regarding the D series. However for loader work you just can't beat the 170/175 diesels. That manual power director-wet clutch arrangement will give many hours of service. I bought a 175D new in 1980 and still use it almost daily. I put a quick-tach Bush Hog loader on it a number of years ago. The only thing I would caution you on is that the front ends on the D's and 100 series are actually not rugged enough for really heavy loader work in adverse conditions... but then I have lots of mud on my Mohawk Valley farm. I had to weld gussets on mine to keep the spindle tubes from ripping off. Put a set of three ring chains on loaded and weighted rear tires and she goes just about anywhere. Take the loader off to do field work... front end will appreciate it.

I have the D series except 10 and 21. The D-15 is my all around reliable, user friendly, and practical depending on what I'm doing. D-17 best loader ever. grew up with WD-45, still have it, plow tractor.

My favorite, 6080. Large hp but very nimble. Runs cheap and very reliable.

I usually try to avoid these opinion questions. There can be enough controversy over facts! But I can't resist. My favorites were the D series. Ground speeds doubled over the WD series with the power director. And I find that I don't want to spend a long time in the seat of my WD45! Just do some occasional mowing with it. 180's and larger were more prone to transmission wear and the resulting popping out of gear going down hill. And the hydraulically controlled power director is not as useful. The 170-175 retained most of the basics of the late D17, I just don't like the sheet metal as well. That one might be big enough to do what you want.

I'm guessing by doubled you me the number of speed options doubled, as in WD's are 4 speeds and D series are 4 speed with a high and low option for each gear. I have a D14 and a 170, and both are excellent tractors that have seen a lot of work over the years. Three generations of drivers and still going strong.

Yeah- I didn"t read that close enough. I was thinking travel speed.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I have an aftermarket seat on one of mine... It makes a world of difference. It has a giant spring on it, and the seat is flat with the ground. For a long legged guy like me, it makes using it a pleasant experience.
