Does anyone know the approximate tow weight of an AC-WD? It has hydraulics and a bucket if that makes much difference. I've never seen it and will be towing it several hundred miles. It also has a brush hog mower, model/width unknown. Any information is greatly appreciated.

With the loader and bush hog, I'd estimate it at 5,000lbs, depending on how much has rotted awayż Don't forget to figure the trailer weight as well.

I'd recommending hauling it instead of towing. You will have to tow slowly and will wear out tires, maybe gears, bearings, etc - that just weren't meant to run at highway speeds. FWIW!

My Operator's manual lists the WD shipping weight on rubber as 3975 lbs. You'll have to add the other equipment you have to get closer to your actual towing weight.

Just had mine weighed (48' WD) Sunday. Approx 8 gallons gas. Narrow front, unloaded 13.6 tires. With me on 195lbs===3620lbs.

WD45 weighs about 4600 pounds. Loader will add some additional, but not a great deal. WD is similar in weight.

You are asking the total weight of this equipment.....so you will take the proper hauling equipment,to haul it home,---right? My guess is the total wt. would be around 5500# ....the tractor probably has water in the tires and weights .....can't tow it on the road very far ....recomended tow speed with tractor on the ground is 20 MPH max.......

Good point on the tires having fluid in- towing distance is limited. I pulled (not trailered) one about 140 miles once, and the fluid caused a rear tire failure.
