I just bought two AC's a WD, and a WD45. The WD45 has a gauge that says traction booster, what is "traction booster"? Are these tractors worth more as part sources orwhole tractors?
Thanks in advance

Worth more to me as whole tractors!!! Even in bad shape I would have much more interest in rebuilding and returning it to use again. However, from a financial aspect the most money would probably be in parts.

The traction boost is used with mounted implements, such as a plow. It is the real heart of the WD system for heavy work with mounted snap-coupler implements. You have to set the hydraulics up for the traction boost, you drop the implement and then raise the hyd lever about 1/4 way or so. With the WD-45 you will see the gage rise. The WD never had a gage. As the pull increases on the drawbar the hyd system will transfer some of the implement weight to the rear wheels. Works super when plowing!! If you convert to 3-point it will not work without a special 3-point system, availabe from some of the vendors on here.

I would rather sell them whole too, because I don't have time to dismantle and sell them in parts. The WD is complete except for fenders, PTO,and hydraulic pump. Engine is stuck now, but is soaking. WD45 is missing head and fenders. Both tractors have usable sheet metal. Any idea what a ballpark value would be?
Thanks doorguy
