New WD owner

Just bought a WD. Good runner, WF, PS. No 3 pt.- snap coupler. The previous owner has a 7' back blade for it as well he will throw into the deal. My question- how much extra should I give for the blade? Are they exceptionally difficult to find?

Any help appreciated-
Thanks

Call --503--767--3660 for darn good three points for the WD. Tony and Barb make them.

Uses blades aren't all that expensive. If it's a true Allis snap coupler blade, they usually start at about $300. and go up depending on condition.

The advantage of buying the blade offered is that you won't have to hunt around for an Allis blade afterward. It's the only kind that will fit the Allis snap coupler hitch. You'll be able to go to work with it right away. The next question is - what else do you plan to do with the tractor? If you plan to mount anything else to the rear of the tractor, unless old Allis equipment is plentiful in your area, you might be better off to spend about $300 and three hours of your time to install a heavy duty three point hitch on the WD. Then you'll be ready for just about anything. As a guide, I paid $800 for a brand new Land Pride RB35-96. That's an 8' blade with tilt. I wouldn't bother with the tilt feature if I had to do it over though. You should be able to buy a new 3 pt 7' blade for $600 + -. That would be a good one. Cheaper ones are available.

Thanks for the replies.

I elected to not buy the blade and think would be better to spend the $ on a HD 3 pt. conversions.

The obvious follow up is who should I contact to buy the conversion kit from? Have been told there are good ones and junk ones on the market. The best persons to ask are the ones who have done the work and used the products.

Any help/ suggestions appreciated-

The BEST 3-pt conversion for a snap coupler AC is an original Allis-Chalmers snap coupler 3-pt unit. It's top link is well desighned to work properly, it's tough & well-made; probably a little difficult to find one. If you find one that is complete-top link attachment and all, buy it. Second best is the Saginaw unit -always advertised in Antique Power magazine. www.saginawcountytractor.com

I bought mine from a fellow named Al Baier in Menomonie, Wis. I called him and he had it drop shipped (the next day). A real heavy duty unit and my only problem was I didn't know what to do with two orange parts left over. I called him and he explained they were for the snap coupler which my tractor (a '49 WD) never had. I will try to get more info for you on other sources.

Today's Featured Article - A 1937 John Deere Unstuck - by Gary Hickman. Here is my story of how I got the pistons out of a 1937 JD B that the engine had been stuck for about 14 years: About 12 years ago my Dad gave me one of the tractors I ran as I was growing up on our farm in central Nebraska. The engine on this tractor, a 1937 John Deere "B", had been stuck for 2 years before he gave it to me. This last spring (1999) I hauled the tractor to our 2 acre lot in St. Libory Nebraska where it joined my antique machinery collection, at that time a 1929 Caterpillar T ... [Read Article]
