Bill,

The Pony isn't much larger. It may be heavier, but the engine is only 62 C.I. as opposed to the Cub's nearly 60. Scruffy did good!

:D :D :D

She's a beauty!

I got her tonight and drove her a couple of miles on the gravel road before I parked her in my friend's outbuilding. She did great!

I have some work planned for her this weekend.

Yee haw! My first tractor!

Dan...CONGRATULATIONS on your MH Pony! GREAT little tractors and a lot of FUN (just like Cubs) :D !

You're RIGHT too about the safety issue! ANY SIZE tractor can wheel-over backwards in a FLASH :cry: !!! When it happens...MOST DRIVERS ARE CRUSHED & KILLED :( ...OR JUST PLAIN LUCKY (if they're NOT) :oops: !!! Here in Tennessee 3 experienced farmers were killed just last year alone pullin' tree stumps when their tractors wheeled-over on them...BE SAFE...NOT SORRY :wink: !

I bought the Jensales' Operator's, Service, and Parts manuals for the Pony. Lots of good information.

I wish the old photos had photocopied better but the line drawing and print look really good. Lots of good information on implements too.
