I attended the LeSueur Pioneer Power Swap Meet this past weekend and found a two bottom AC mounted plow. It did not have the snap-coupler hitch. The hitch was a 4 inch channel iron less than three feet long and it looked like you dropped a pin in the drawbar and it had the connections for the hydralic arms that stick out from the back of the tractor. The kid that was there didn't seem to know what it was for. I think it goes with a WD w/o the snap coupler. When I went back later for a closer look, he was gone. Here are my questions.
Did that plow actually work and what were there good points?
Are they rare? What are they worth? The asking price was $150.
I saw a plow like this 5 years ago at an auction in SE MN.
Thanks for any information you can give me.

This is probably the original pick-up plow for the early WD's. We had a 1948 WD new with this plow. There should be a large coil spring where the drawbar is attached to the frame. This allowed the plow, if it hooked a rock or root or some such, to kind of spring back and jump clear of the obstruction. More likely though you bent a share and reared up the front wheels! Lift arms are the same on all WD models.

I believe what you saw is an early snap coupler model. The first ones had a pin in the front rather than the latch. I have never seen a WD without a snap coupler hitch. If the tractor has the lift arms, it has the snap coupler hitch. I'm sure the plow you saw works just like the latch type snap coupler plows, which worked quite well. I paid $100 for my 3-14's plow, but that had the latch type hitch.

Chip, your comment is incorrect. . .the WD was produced with a pin hitch in the same spot as the snapcoupler bell on the WD-45. . which is where the snapcoupler originally came out (possibly the CA) . .but it was 1954, if I remember correctly. . the WD could easily be retrofitted with the snapcoupler.

Lift arms do not equal snapcoupler.
