Tractordata lists the shipping weight of a Pony at just shy of 1500lbs.

I've got a single axle flatbed rated at 2990 GVWR that I haul a Cub around with frequently, with 300lb of wheel weights and a sickle mower.

There's a Pony I might be bringing home. It doesn't have weights or implements or anything, just a bare tractor.

Shouldn't be a problem, right?

Years ago, I brought mine home in the back of my full size F-250. Didnt have the trailer and opportunity knocked. Slow and easy, you should be ok.

One time I went to the dunp with my trailer, told the dumpmaster I just wanted the trailer itself weighed, so at a time of day when things are slow, I put the jack down on the scale, unhitched and drove off straight, when she signaled, I backed straight onto the ball and got it out without being in anyone's way. My 7000 lb trailer weighs 1300 equipt, ramps, spare and with the box I keep chains, straps and stuff in, so what ever I bring home has to be less than 5700, which is heavy in my book.
So if your trailer is rated for say- 3000, and weighs ? 8 or 900, you have lots of 'legal' elbowroom. But yeah, a MH pony doesn't weigh anymore than a real pony, which, if it can fit in the back of a 3/4 ton pick up...

The 1500 lbs weight was before fluids, weights and implements were added. If you normally tow a Farmall Cub, I see no problem.
I ended up just having an equipment company move mine, I would have had to rent.. so it was cheaper that way for me.
