In good (easy to plow) ground, I"d say a 3-14"s plow would match up to a straight WD. In tougher ground (like clay), I"d put a 2-16"s behind it. For a WD45 it"d be 3-16"s or even a 4-14"s (semi-mount plow) for good ground and maybe 3-14"s tough ground. Mike

Biggest question is how much weight is added and how good are the tires..
A WD will pull 3-14" fine, you just may need to drop to low gear in some tough spots..
Plowing with a WD or WD-45 is great fun..!
DO be sure (if it is a WD) to convert to the "Snap-Coupler", with Release-Latches on the lift arms.
Eliminates all safety issues..
A little weight on the front helps in really tough plowing..
Set Drawbar control to "Weight Transfer" settings (Traction Booster).

Ron..

Bushhog Papa brings up a good point re Snap-Coupler and lift arm latches. So many people don"t know which is which. Snap-Coupler is the drawbar latch under the tractor....WD originally had a pin hitch there, and cast couplers that were pinned to the lift arms. Snap-Coupler is not the lift arm latches. Spring loaded latches were used on the lift arms to simplify mounting the equipment and make it safer, since they would release with upward pressure of the mounted implement. Early cast couplers would not release, but they did act as a hinge point to flip the plow onto the tractor driver if the pin hitch came out.
