Your 45 will be able to pull it off on level ground. My neighbor had a 45 and 336 baler and it would pull a load of 150 bales. It was a pretty interesting sight because my uncle seen them hooked up and didn't believe it would run it.
good luck!

Justin, The hand clutch is either 2 or 3 plates. WDs and early 45's had the 2 plate, later 45's had the 3 plate. Think about it, The 3 plate will have more surface area so should have more pulling power before slipping. They both run in an oil bath so that shouldn't be much of an issue. John

I used my WD45 to bale using a New Holland Hayliner. I think it was a 225. I didn't have any major problems. I did break a couple of the bolts that hang the PTO shaft due to the tight turns I had to make with the bailer. They are a nice size to get in and out of smaller acreages.

Ran a 315 NH with our 45,pulled a rack usually 120-130 bales low or second depending on crop,and you can slip the hand clutch in heavy spots.

We used to run a international #45 with a wd, plenty of power, the hand clutch is designed for stopping and starting when baling, the wd is a little fast in 2nd gear, I think the 2nd gear on a wd 45 is better matched for baling,

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
