I have a A-C WD & a A-C WD45 the WD has a row crop front end or NF. & is about 38hp & has a strate up & down shift lever & has a thiner head on it. As for my A-C 1957 WD45 i have a wide Front on it. & for me i like that better. & i do have P/S on it to. The WD45 is about 45hp & has the curved shift on it. ALL WD45 should have this shift. & the head is thicker or taller. That is just some ways to check out WD's from WD45s I hope i have helped you out some.

Try to get power steering if you can! Wish I had it on my WD.

With a narrow front your tires are about 12" apart on a wide front you are on a 1" pin. '

The WD-45 can pull a 3 bottom plow. The wide fronts are better because you can adjust them and you can't find many around like the narrow fronts. The WD's were the same as the WC's but with live PTO, hydrolics, and two clutches. They also had higher RPM's than the WC, but that's about it. Make sure the hydrolics work. Check the tranny for noise, gear grinding, and check to see if the person can give a demonstration, look at how the clutch works.

The wide front is definitely safer if you will be using a front end loader on it. I like the wide fronts because only one wheel will hit that chuck hole and the front end will bounce only half as much....which leads to a smoother ride. Narrow fronts make great mowing and cultivating tractors, and you don't need a jack to change a front tire.

Both are basically the same tractor. The Wd 45 could be described as a souped up WD. The 45 refers to the horsepower wich is more than the WD. To answer your question about wich front end is better it depends on what you use the tractor for, the narrow front end is often refered to as a row crop tractor and has a much tighter turning radius than the wide front end. However the wide front is a more stable tractor. I prefer a narrow front for what I use my WD for mowing raking baling but that is my personel choice I will agree that a wide front is probably safer but then no tractor is safer than the operator.

WILL, I think you should make your own decision about the narrow/wide front question. If you have your head on straight while using a narrow front then you will never have any problems, just like anything it is only as safe as the operator. My Father-n-law is paranoid as heck when it comes to narrow front tractors, every time I would see a nice tractor for sale and would tell him about it the first thing he would ask is if it's a narrow front so I don't see anything for sale anymore. I have hauled a lot of tractors and will tell you that narrow are much easier to haul,store and get around with than wide. Please don't take anything that I have said the wrong way but I have been in this discussion many times and now when I hear it I just walk away.

I would have to agree with both you and Eldon. If you were going to use it as a FEL then I would rather have a wide front just because it disperses the weight out and does not rest on a single point. When not using a FEL I think the perception of safety comes from the fact that a narrow front will turn sharper thus getting yourself into trouble if you donít use your head. Kind of like my 3 wheeler, which they donít sell anymore because, they were dangerous. They were dangerous because you could turn them on a dime at full speed and if you did not know what you were doing you went over. Just my opinion.
