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.
