I found a 3-14 snap coupler plow in very good condition. The fellow used a D-17 to pull the plow, can my WD handle this plow. Thanks for any advice.

Grandpa had WD and used 3-14's in some clay...front end came up alot. Made it work real hard, would stall from time to time.

can remember my dad saying they used to pull 3-14s behind a D15 and 3-14s behind a wd-45. the d15 would overheat and have to let the wd go around at the end of the field. so in answer to your question, I would think the wd would pull the 3 plows just fine unless you are in whai we called gumbo, then any tractor would have trouble pulling the normal plow. In any case, the old wd's will spit fire, turn the muffler red and bark at the moon. They will make the governor work for their money. Good luck.DC

A WD can handle 3-14 in lighter (sandy) soil, but generally were used with 2-16 in heavier clay ground. If you are on heavy soil, and find it difficult to pull the plow in 2nd gear, and if the plow is fully mounted with no tail wheel, just unbolt the last bottom at the upper end of the vertical standard. You'll have a 2-14 with a bit of extra frame sticking out, but you'll probably make better time than shifting down into first gear.

With our two WD-45's, and 4-14" on each one...we would have a 44 acre field finished in two days... AND it had a real good strip of REAL Black-Jack in it, too...( THAT opens the Governors, I can tell you ).!!!

I LOVE to plow with my WD....it is a tractor that, when you operate it, you know it is a "hand full".!!!!!! Powerful, and with those trippy governors-always ready to "RIP"....!!!! It's a GAS to have the front 2-3" off the ground, holding the hand clutch in, steering with the brakes, Listening to that defiant exhaust note...Watching the muffler turn RED, and spout a steady 12-14" of BLUE flame at nite..!!!!!! Dad always used a Straight 3 1/2" exhaust..at the end of the field, it would launch a 3' high yellow ball of flame..!!

A WD will handle a 3-14" in ANY soil that is ready to plow.... YES, I know, it will probably not pull it in dry Black-Jack--but you don't plow dry black-Jack unless you have 100 horse power...you want to chase water down the furrow, if you can--in the FALL...!! I thought ALL WD's came with a 3-14" Mounted plow.. My WD-45 pulls 4x14" semi-mounted in second 100% of the time... I do use a 75 lb. weight on the front, and ALL the tires are LOADED... You can control the front-end height by holding back on the Hand clutch...if you have the left lever set about right..

Eric depending on the condition of your wd and the type of soil 3-14's will be a big load even if the engine is in top condition. In lite soil and plowing 3-4" deep it will pull 3-14's on level ground, in first or second gear. But watch the front end that it does not get off the ground too far.

Around here a stock WD would be working hard to pull 3-14. Depends on your soil.
