I had an old A/C machanic who said "A D17 has a wonder engine. It is a wonder it
ever ran."

I have one as well and it has alot of balls for heavy digging with an industrial loader and 4000lbs of counterweights.

Since it's an old machine my parts are breaking down one by one but the motor still keeps on ticking.

I honestly never met anyone who didn't like the D17.

hello! You are wanting to know about the d17 diesel.
I have 2 d17's, a gas and a diesel. I personally prefer driving the diesel. I think the diesel has more power than the "gas". I really like the fact that it uses less fuel than the other tractor. My diesel has a much better lift system than my gas tractor. I really cant think of any cons about the tractor. When you buy one check the oil pressure, and you might want to look at the injector pump to see if the little wire is still attached where you set the pump up. Hope this helps.

The only cons I can think of are if the engine needs rebuilding, the diesel is much more expensive. And the injection pump if it needs work can be costly, but I like the diesels and when my bank account says I can afford one, I'm going to get one. I agree the diesels like in the WD45 and D-17 probably are more powerful because a diesel will have much more torque than a gas the same size. Have fun with your diesel. Brian

Thanks for the input folks. I have heard almost all good about the D17.

I am still trying to make a deal for the D17. The owner thinks much of it also.

I have a 1958 D-17 diesel. Have run it for about 20 years. Has been a great tractor for me. Runs really cheap. Starts hard when temperature drops belows 32 but I use a block heater so that is no problelm. The 262 cu Buda engine really runs smooth when the pump and injectors are set right.
