WD 45 weight question

I have a really nice WD 45, its on pressed combine wheels, has the fenders, draw bar, hydrolics, snap coupler stuff, battery box and all the other standard order gas tractor stuff, what does it weigh roughly? Seen a thing on tractor data that it weights a few pounds under 4000 lbs, but what wheels was that with? Trying to figure out what classes I could run, or how light I can get, so anyone have any ideas judging by what it has on it?
Thanks everyone!

I think others have answered, but with a bare lite WD-45 it may have traction problems, the engine can go much further. Even with added weight the engine will not give out. The Hitch hookup location can transferr more traction to the rear but you have to stay within the rules. A Higher hitch is better to some extent. It all comes with experience/weight balance etc. Good Luck Patience etc.

Mine was a tad over 3700 with no weights, drawbar and wheelie bars inplace of the lift arms and cylinders. Otherwise the rest of the tractor was complete as it would come out of the field, with 13.6's on the factory spin out wheels. I pulled it in the 4000 once and couln't get any traction.

Hey, stupid question but how did it pull? Very strong? Mine is a stock WD 45, its had a recent engine overhaul, think it would do very much?

was that with fenders? Think the pressed steel wheels will weight more or less then the spin outs? Did you still have your PTO shaft on and your other hydro stuff other then the cylinders?

Well, I wonder what the weight difference is between the pressed steel combine wheels and the spin outs? I know the combine wheels are 26" centers and spin outs are 28", does anyone think I am right in figuring that the spinouts weight more then the pressed steel?

The 4000# probably was with the spinout rims no fluid 12 or 13 inch tires. To get an actual reading with full tank of gas, have it weighted at a truck stop or a local tractor pull scales, then you can weight each component you could take off to see if you can get down to 3500# if that's what you want to do.
