Having spent a lot of time in the drivers seat of both the WD and the WD-45, the biggest difference was hooking to a three bottom plow or a 12 foot disc. Our WD-45"s would walk with them in third gear, while the WD"s needed second gear. Otherwise, both models with wide fronts were good loader tractors, snow movers, corn planters, mowers, rakers, and balers, etc. etc.

Stock WD is about 33 PTO HP. WD 45 Is 45 PTO HP. In the right place 12 more HP would be better.

I have a late model WD with the curved shift lever. Use it to run a 7 foot brush hog. Cut weeds and small brush that are as tall or taller than the tractor. Plenty of power. Good fuel economy also. Get a "hankerin" for a 45 now and then, but don't really need it. Someday I'll probably get a 45 just to "have" it.........FWIW....RP

The WD and the WD45 are almost the same tractor. Big difference is that the WD45 has about 10 more HP then the WD has. Both are 4 speeds and both have hyds and hand clutch. To the common man they look like the same tractor and thats why there are so many WDs sold as WD45 when in fact they aren't what people say they are. Seen a good many WDs at shows that people have posted signs o and said that the tractor was a WD45 when in fact it was a WD instead. Big difference is the engine in them. Ya the trannys are a little different also but again not by that much. Control are pretty much the same on both also. Theres a few picture of both in my web site

Not necessarily. Just a bit more power under the hood is all, but my straight WD is all I could ever ask for. Mostly easy to work on, runs good, and has good pulling power (I figure around 37 HP). Good enough to work a small garden with and use a pull type rotary mower and do various other work with smaller equipment.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
