I am looking for the top ground speed of an Alice Chalmers WD45 4500lb tractor for a project. Can anyone help me determine the top speed in low gear at full rpm's? Thanks.

You don't say why the actual speed is important. There are too many variables to be able to predict it. Tire size is the big one but tire inflation makes a difference as well as does tire wear. If you want to know precisely, buy a small GPS unit. They are pretty handy for cars and tractors.

Bill-Utah has the best advice. Any decent GPS receiver will be accurate within 1/10th MPH steady state. Just make sure it's set up for statute miles per hour and not nautical mph (knots) or kilometers per hour. Easy to select on most.

Use a GPS to measure your speed, it will be the most acurate you will get.

Paul's numbers are straight from the book, with standard size tires. Factory option of 13x28 will be slightly faster.

Run for 60 seconds measure distance traveled and do the math, distance times 60 divide by 5280 will tell how fast

Don't know about an "Alice" Chalmers, but an Allis-Chalmers WD-45 will go about 12-14mph if everything is in stock configuration & tune. A D-17 or 175 governor spring would speed things up a little. Kip

Have someone "travel clock" you in an automotive vehicle.

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]
