My dad bought a manure spreader off this guy for $1000. The guy told my dad he had to take this old WD-45 with it. Said the motor was stuck, and he had no way to get it to a scrap yard. My dad asked me if I wanted it. I really didnt care for those old AC's, But,I said sure. Only took a couple day's to get the engine freed up. Guy wasnt too happy to see it running. Then I found there was no oil in the rearend. Put oil in. Started leaking at a steady drip. Had to split the tractor to repair the leak. Guy saw the tractor split, asked me why. I told him about the leak. He said it never leaked when he had it. I told him that it cant leak it if it ain't got it. Anyway, I've had the 45 for ten years now. It's my favorite "Do Everything" tractor now.

I'm new at this chat stuff but I need some info. on AC tractors. I'm in the market for a tractor to blade driveway,do light work around house,ect. I don't want an restored tractor but I don't want a piece of junk either. I found a WD45 that was just right for me but I studied too long and it got away. I liked the size of the WD45 and would like to know what other tractors are comparable in weight and horsepower. I was raised up with 8N and they are good tractors but if they are decent ,they are usually too pricey. Also what about MM and Olivers? Are parts too hard to find and too costly or are they good tough tractors that don't need a lot of repair in general? I would like to stay in the $2000 or under price range including any repairs,tires and ect. if possible. Sorry to ramble on about this but I'm ignorant on these old tractors and need all the help I can get.

Today's Featured Article - 1935 John Deere BN History - The History of My Tractor - by Alexander G. Knox. My grandfather, Orval A.

It was his first new tractor and his first with rubber tires. He used it on his farm growing cotton, alfalfa, corn, wheat, milo, barley, and oats. My father, Norman L. Knox, recalls Pa putting a mower on the tractor during the day and then ... [Read Article]
