Depends on what it has on it - wheel weights, loaded tires, mowing deck, etc., etc. Bare tractor is around 700 lb, attatchments could bring it up to 1000-1200 lb. (All approximate)

I haul mine occasionally with a 5x8 high side utility trailer. My Economy PK weights at least 900# and hauling it with small SUV was no problem.

Welcome and good luck with the new tractor

My suggestion would be as biggest you want to store.

With a 5 foot deck youll need at least a 6 x 10

I put my 2418 on a light wieght utility trailer when I bought it and the trailer bent to the ground. so don't use a mesh trailer. Welcome and you will enjoy this tracter.
