While Massey-Harris had success with larger tractors, they wanted to try to help out the small farmers, too. With this new endeavor in mind, they released the Massey-Harris Pony. Produced from 1947 to 1957, the Pony was a 4×2 two-wheel drive tractor with a single plough. It had the same general styling as other Massey-Harris’, but the width between the front two wheels could be adjusted. The tractor was five feet tall and had a wheel base of sixty-six inches.
The engine used on the Pony was a four cylinder Continental N62. It was gasoline-ran and liquid cooled, and had natural aspiration. The three-speed transmission was unsychronized, and had one reverse speed. When tested, there were 10.43hp at the drawbar and 11.62hp at the belt. Manual steering was the only steering option on the Pony, and the brakes were differential mechanical contracting bands.
