Still trying to find the "right" tractor for what I want to do. Stumbled across two d14s one for $2000. And one for $2950. The second one is supposed to be realy nice.

What were the weak points and pattern failures? What could I realistically pull (in medium- heavy sand) as far as implements?. Both have 3pt conversions what could I realistically lift? Does the D14 have remote hyds and can they be operated seperately from the 3pt.? Aslo how much under axle clearance does it have? Enough for bush beans or hilled potatoes on 36 or 30 inch rows. Thanks, Sod Buster

Only been around one D14. They are nice little tractors. They can be converted to 3pt pretty easy. You can buy a top link bracket.

I don't think a D14 with a 3pt would pull a three bottom plow where I live.

I personally would look for a Ford hundred series tractor. They are more common here and parts are cheaper and easier to find.

I looked around some since I said late model D15 might have been equipped with factory 3 pt hitch,
I never found one, so I guess if you want a factory 3 pt hitch you are going to have to buy a tractor made after the D15 series,

Yes some D15 series II exist with factory three point. I've seen one around here. It wasn't much of a hitch, pretty light. There was a multiple spool valve that was an option. A friend has one on a D14. It's the only one I've ever seen.

There was even a whole optional hyd. system for the D15 series II which was much like the D17 series IV. I've never seen one of them.

I've had one for 25 years, and it's the most reliable piece of equipment I own. I do all of my tedding, raking, and odd jobs with it - probably 200 hours a year. The downside is no power steering, or independent hydraulics or PTO.
The aftermarket three point hitches are ok, but you don't have draft control (the draft sensing was done under the belly of the tractor, where the snap coupler implements attached)

A series "5" model ?? really .........D-15's went to series 2. The 35 HP model D-14 kind of replaced the WD (not the WD45) and was a 3-14's tractor in some soils, but where I come from 2-16's would have been a better match for the weight and HP.

Not hard to believe that they will pull 3x14 plow 8" deep. Seen it many times, several neighbors had them. Neighbor pulled a 1/2 full school bus out of a ditch one morning on a mud road, no chains on the tractor. If I wanted a smaller tractor I would seriously consider one.

Well if you really want the implements to work correctly then you need to find snap coupler implements. The three point conversions are a stop gap measure. They do not work well with many implements.

They would have a high pressure remote system. Meaning they usually used smaller diameter cylinders. IRC the system had 3000 PSI on the remotes. They also can not be operated separately of the three point.

To get a true factory three point and independent remotes you would need to find a series five D-15.

They would easily have enough ground clearance for your Bush beans or hilled potatoes. Finding a complete set of cultivators might be a challenged.

That is one of the few models of AC that I would consider to own. G, D10, D12, D14, D15 or D17, possibly a D19

My Dad had a D14 gutty little tractor but as soon as you hooked a 2 bottom plow or a 8ft disc to it and started working it hard it would over heat, never could get it to run normal temp when pulling heavy or hooking it to a hay bailer.

So in the absence of a hill or wagon to hook to it how can I tell if third gear is worn. Also a couple more questions. How easy are the D 14 s to work on and how easy are parts to find?

The d14 was a good smaller tractor. The pto is live but not independent which was mentioned below as well as some had trans issues. Dad often had one around for a chore tractor and I mowed hundreds of acres of hay with a D14 and a seven ft 990 IH haybine. I never cared for the six volt electrical system as the AC is a high compression engine and when hot six volts were sometimes not enough to get it going. Stalled the little 14 a few times by accident and got chewed out by dad when I could not get it to restart. Changing to 12 volt would be easy or maybe a bigger six volt battery. I would not be afraid of one for what you want to do. Tom

I had one for years, good old tractors, but they do not have live pto, if this is not a problem for you then you are good to go,
If bush hogging you have to let the cutter stop spinning before you can shift from forward gear to reverse, this can slow you down in a small tight field,

Many people drive them in third gear most of the time, this gear wears causing the transmission to jump out of third gear going down hill, just be sure your brakes are in top condition if this happens,

So check third gear on a hill with a load like a wagon etc pushing you,

Rear tires are 26 not the standard 28 that most tractors of this size have, They were made in 1957,58, 59

I had a full set of snap couple equipment for mine, the draft control only works with snap couple equipment, no draft control on a three pt adapter,

If any of this is a problem then buy a later model AC with factory installed 3 pt hitch, I believe some D 15 had factory 3 pt hitch

How deep did he have it in the ground or was he just driving over the top?

My great uncle had a brand new D14 and he pulled three 14inch bottoms with it just fine. I have also seen WD45's pull four 14's before as well. It needs to be a snap coupler plow but it is amazing what those smaller AC's were capable of. Tom
