the first thing to do is check the oil in the trans/rear end and final drives.

Final drive noises are quite common on WD's. Mine has the usual howl from the final drives. The WF has the same final drive and mine has a growl which seems to be from the right side , especially at higher speeds or under load. I have been told that this is a bad bearing in the hub or in the drive axle. I haven't had a chance to get in there to check it out, but will have to soon as it is getting worse.

Hi, yes first check all the fluids in the rear. If they are topped off, chance are it is normal. These have straight cut gears in them and cause a whine or growl type sound when they mesh. Very distinctive of the tractor, but normal. Just make sure you have good clean fluid in em and they'll be fine. I f anyone asks what the sound is, just tell em you got blower on it!
