There is No way in gods green earth an A/C G can outpull a 9N, oh I made a mistake, it could with the 9N shut off and the transmission in neutral.

I own a 9N with fluid filled tires and have used her to plow, disc and carry logs up from the woods. She is a good working tractor, but as for horsepower and torque she does well for what she is needed, but to compare a 9N to a WD well there is a big difference. First weight, the WD out weighs the Ford so that helps with traction for pulling. Secondly horsepower, the 9N is not rated at the same horsepower as a WD. So the WD should be able to pull more and handle heavier implements, but as for doing work in tight places I would not use anything else but the Ford. Now if you were comparing a WD to a John Deere B now there is more of comparison to be talked about.

I've seen both in real field working conditions. i have a WD and my neighbor(and good friend) has a ford 9N. wich i must say, his 9N is like new. his grandfather bought it new and a year later sold most of his land. Well after my friend spent alot of money on new tires he wanted to see how it pull (after spending all that money) Well we tryed it on a 12 foot disk, wich has 20" blades. well needless to say, the only way he could pull it was to keep the disk halfway out of the ground. Then he thought maybe the ground was too wet and wanted to see how my old WD did. and yes we call it the old WD as i think my grandfather and my dad used it all day long. You know the old saying if it doesn't use oil its still good. Well the WD had no problem pulling the disk at all. i could not stear it at all unless i used the brakes. but had no problem pulling. I truely think you will have to say that in any kind of work the WD is the winner hands down.

We used to spend a few hours a week pulling the neighbors 9N's out of the mud with our WD in the spring. Wd will pull the 9N around the block!

I'm an Allis man threw and threw, but have owned other tractors. A few years ago I had an 8N and a JD LA at the same time, believe it or not the little LA out pulled the 8N. Just my 2 cents.

I'm impartial, being a (Gasp!) John Deere guy, but over the years I have worked both WD's and 9N's, and if you chained the two back to back, the WD would drag the 9N till there was nothing left of it but the gas cap!


They're both good machines depending what you're using them for. WD probably better for heavier work, plowing, heavy bush-hogging, etc., 9N good for mowing, light blade work and such.

Just my opinion.

Now, If you wanna talk about a real tractor.........NO!.....I won't do it on this board.....I won't mention my John Deere A.


Have fun,

Terry H

I own a WD and 8N. Given condition of both to be good, a WD will pull an 8N right through itself. Your pal needs to get his medication checked.

With a little weight in the right places, I think a good running B or C would give that 9N a run for it's money!!

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
