He told us that in the first post:
I was more concerned about the tongue weight and the movement of people on the trailer


Strange, I do not see any mention of people in the first post.

I got a 1948 Farmall cub and a 6x12 trailer. I was wondering if the cub could pull this trailer through a parade and be ok. I can lift the trailer at the hitch by myself and move it if needed. I was more concerned about the tongue weight and the movement of people on the trailer if it would hurt the final drives. Thanks. Ps I do not have a swinging drawbar only the normal drawbar.


It's there...

My rule is "Butts on the Hay" for hay rides. no movement everyone sitting.

I think the bigger concerns are for the people you are responsible for and not the finals.
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

Again, stopping is one thing, stopping on a hill (uphill) is another... :oops:

I just had a hayride with my little cub I used a 6 x 10 ft trailer with 6 bales of straw and 10 kids and one adult around less say between 1300 to 1500 lbs I only had to stop on the one little hill one time to shift into 1st gear I was lucky my breaks held so I could down shift from then on I stopped at the bottom to shift into 1st my advice is get some event insurance just in case and stop at the bottom of the hill to change gears
