Cub's older brother

I am looking at tractors for the antique pulling club here in STL. I saw a 1950 WD-9 for sale on YT mag. Are these W-series the bruisers of the Farmall line?

The WD-9 is a brute!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

They take it pretty serious too out here in the Canyon Country.

Here in my tri-county area, there is really only one club that does most of the church picnics and the county fair. Although, it does get pretty competitive internally! We currently have a '41 Farmall H and a '48 Gibson H in competition. I just like the looks of the big boys. I should get my Cub out there, since the only other tractor in the class is a John Deere LA. I like the antique pulls a lot better than the hot rods. Talk about needing deep pockets!

A former president of our antique tractor and engine club once said: "There are two types of antique tractor pullers, cheaters and losers."

These guys are serious; domed pistons, modified cranks. I have heard of a "M" that has concrete around the liners and only runs water in the head.
There is a JD that doesn't sound like a put-put due to engine mods.
Best,
Mike

Wow, that is over competitive. I think there are a couple of guys here running letter series Farmalls with Super components, but nothing that bad. Either that or they are really sneaky.

In this area, the antique puller have stock and modified categories. stock is just that, and rpms are even checked.

They check RPM here. The high power boys say at stock RPM.
