I have 10 acres which I hope to grow to at least 20 or 30, maybe a few more some day. I have been looking for a tractor that would be good for haying, snow removal and general utility. I only have $1500 to $2000 to spend so I know it may be tuff to find something. I have a post on tractor talk if you want to look at all the replies I got. A few guys recommended a WD and WD45. I would like some feedback from a few AC owners. Thanks

Don't overlook the CA either it might be a good choice for you. If you are new to tractors, and even if you are not you should get an owners manual for your machine. The older iron doesn't have all the safety features of the new stuff and knowledge can save your life or prevent injury. Older tractors are a lot of fun to use but do deserve a lot of respect. There are a lot of reprinted manuals available on ebay for around 10 bucks that shold get you started off on the right foot if your machine doesn't come with one. T.J.

IN my experience and opinion a wd or wd-45 would be an excellent choice! They have live power take off so you can run a hay baler for example stop turning the wheels and it will still run the baler. They are workhorses. Keep the fuel line clean and you shouldn't have any problems at all! Wheel weights are easy to find for them as well as general parts and information. easy tractor to work on other then taking the old rusted hood off since it is bolted down. I think good all around tractor though! Also the ford workmasters are real good. The 8n or 9n etc or good but dont have the weigh tor power to pull or push.

I'm not sure if it's just my WD45, but that thing has a good governor. You can idle in any gear. I don't recall it ever stalling because of not enough RPMs.

Both would be good choices. I grew up on 45's and they are quite capable of doing everything you want. My brother still uses 5 of them on his dairy farm as chore tractors, and i have 4 that I use for everything except heavy tillage. One thing to watch for is the snap coupler implements, if you can find them it would make getting the 3 point conversion unnecessary and save you some money up front. John

I've got two WD-45's. One narrow front, and the other is Wide front. Both have 3pt set up. I prefer the Wide front, but that is just personal. Not sure what part of the country you are located, but for the amount you have to spend, it should get you a good running and decent WD-45. I think you would be real happy with a WD-45.. With the 3pt setup you can do about anything you would want to.

You may find a good WD at a better price than a WD-45; practically all the same features with less horsepower. These tractors both have a second (hand) clutch which enables you to stop the tractor without stopping the PTO or hydraulics, a handy feature when mowing, baling or using a front-end loader.

And make sure any tractor you look at has a good shiftlever boot. And check the transmission for water especially if the boot is shot. This is where many get water into them and it will settle to the pto on the bottom and freeze and crack the pto among other forms of damage. The mann weak point of ACs I think is the rubber boot. And not a problem if it is kept in good shape. Oh, I love AC, and think you would be happy with eigher a WD or 45. Probably the WD has enough power, more than the average tractor of it's size, and the 45 is a hotrod with almost 10 more hp, 35 and 43 hp.
