Can't seem to find how much a F-12 weighs. Any help would be appreciated.

Brent, It would help to know what year it is and if it has metal wheels or is the rubber tired tractor. :?:

John,

That might help. It's a 1939 on rubber. It's also a tricycle.

According to Guy Fay's IH Tractor Data Book, a standard F-12 weighed 2,700 lbs. Add-ons and attachments/options would alter this weight. 8)

:D :D :D Thanks for the info. Looks Like I won't have to buy a bigger trailer if I buy it. That's close to what the Cub weighs with wheel weights and the plow hooked up.

I would check the width on the F-12. I have an F-20 and the back tires are 7' wide. Larry

I would take the book number lightly. H's were supposed to be 3700lbs. and I weighed mine on the scales at 5500lbs. field ready. and I don't have a belly pump. I'm assuming the F12 could weigh that toally stripped but the actuall unit might be considerable more.

Brent...Sounds like you're on your way to owning a GREAT tractor! I believe BOTH the F-12 and the limited edition F-14 has the same rear wheel width...making a dual axel 8' by 14' flatbed trailer the most perfered model. If your trailer has a brake controler, and is weight rated for 5000 pounds you'll be just right! :wink:

Country,

:( :( :( Well, he who hesitates is lost. The guy says he forgot I was interested and sold it last week. I would have had to buy a bigger trailer that's why I was asking about the weight. Guess I saved myself some money until next time!
