As you will be pulling a tank that weighs in excess of 500 lb. I would suggest something such as the John Deere model 455 with 3 cyl. Yanmar diesel. It is a little heavier than what you will need for most applications but you must remember, a tank 3/4 to 1/2 full can be a handful going up and down steep grades,stopping etc. I have driven literally dozens of different trucks,tractors with various configurations of tanks. Load shift is the issue here and a small mini tractor is unlikely to be able to control this phenomena. Drove the above suggested tractor this fall as a loaner until repairs were done to my 322 and was in love with the loads of torque, strong hydrostatics and of course great ergonomics that seemingly only John Deere can deliver. Hope this helps!
