Here is an opinion question for you.
Out of curiosity, which clutch do you prefer to use? Hand or foot? Why? Whitch offers less wear and repair over time?

Have fun!

It's been 25 years since I've been around a WD but when I did use one, I used the foot clutch for shifting and the hand clutch was great for sickle bar mowing.If I was going to stop and not shift I used the hand clutch.The hand clutch was handy doing loader work too.WD's didn't have live hydraulics through the foot clutch.

This a plug for the foot clutch...!!! ( and a vote NOT to use an over-running clutch on the PTO).... Since I use an AC-60 combine..I use NO over-running clutch on anything but the old baler.. If you see a rock going up the pick-up ( canvas) I can simultaneously push the foot clutch, and hit the brakes HARD and force the PTO to stop... This works in an emergency with the Bush Hog, TOO... It could save a life....!!! Since I pull 4x14"'s, and I have the heavy 9 spring pressure plate, I prefer to use the foot clutch, when plowing...I'd rather replace it than the hand clutch.!!

Hand clutch will wear a long time and is designed for slipping. Thus in haying and such operation the hand clutch works best, in fact, for any constant PTO operation the hand clutch is great. With the rotobaler we always use the hand clutch to keep ground speed right for a full pick-up and to stop and kick a bale while still running the PTO, the two were made to go together.

I am no expert on these machines having only owned mine for a year but... after a season of haying, cutting, raking and baling all done with a 1950 WD I really like that hand clutch. I use the foot clutch for gear selection and the hand clutch for the rest of the time. The pto lever is posistioned so its as easy to push it in with your foot as it is to go for the foot clutch.
