Should I buy a WD????

I have found a WD for sale for $1200. It has brand new back tires ( sticker is still on) and the motor has been rebuilt. What is the price range and is it a good tractor? I believe it is a 1940 vintage. Is the add on three point hitch conversion kit that you can buy at local tractor parts shops a good system??

i have two wd`s here is some things i like and dont like. they do have three points and a live pto. you can hook up a hydrulic for one way out of your draft control. with a tricycle front end they work great for mowing with a bush hog mower in close places the hand clutch is oil bathed so it dosent hurt to slip it. the down falls is is it needs a couple more gears in it the speed is to fast for the engine power it produces and its hard to mow heavy grass with out riding the clutch also i pull a twelve foot tandem disk with it and if you dont have weighted tires it will spin out on you the other down fall is if you put a three point on it you lose your drawbar other wise its a good tractor hope this gives you some help any questions e-mail me im a antique tractor fan

Joe if you will send me your serial no. we should be able to pinpoint the year and style of your Allis. The no should be on the axle housing near the left brake adjustment plate and should start with a wd if it is one then the number sequence behind that will tell us the year. At 1200 with a good engine and new rear tires I would grab this. Its a good colector tractor as well as a good useable tractor.

Raised on a farm in Iowa years ago. We had both WC and WD. If I remember right the WC didn't have any Hydraulic and the WD was the first to come with Hydraulic. I used to cultivate with a WC that had a mechnaical lift and when we got the WD it was alot nicer with hydraulic for operating all the equipment.

If you really believe it to be a 1940 vintage tractor, and it doesn't have a 3-point hitch, then it might be a WC.

That would be a real good price for a WD in the condition you describe. The new tires alone are probably $400 of that and an overhaul kit for a WD runs about $500. Plus, all the really hard work is done! WDs are tough, hard working tractors and should give you years of reliable service.

My 2,

i have a 1948 wd which i believe is the first year they were made. when i die mine goes to my nephew. so this tells you what i think of this tractor!i've had mine for almost 20 years . mine has the pin hitch instead of the snap coupler type . i have a d17 with a snap coupler attatched 3pt hitch. it is ok. but the snap coupler is a better system than the 3pt in my estimation. but since i have an older bushog where the company wasnt smart enough to move to the snap coupler system yet !lol =) i do wish the wd had a slower speed but other than that ,i am going to put power steering on mine too ! it's not a cute tractor as the fords but it will do twice the work. a friend told me about his wd [it was really a wc] so i bought mine when i was i believeabout22. im 40 now and she needs an over haul and the power steering put on. and some non serious stuff done. but i believe i was really lucky that this was my first tractor!=) i added the hydraulic line later so i have remote hydraulics now too! the price sounds great and especially with new tires and an over haul. i would definitly go for it! good luck and let us know how it comes out!=)

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
