We were just talking about this yesterday at my plow day.  My 430 weighs 1170 bare, but both rear tires and both front tires are liquid filled, it has the JD Starter weights on the rear along with a set of the add on weights, and there is 240 pounds hanging on the front weight bracket.  Without the plow, she is sitting just shy of the 2000lb mark.  So with her is "ready to plow" trim and me on it, I am guessing somewhere around 2400.

According to the manual my Speedex is supposed to weight 830.  I've got an extra 40 on each rear wheel and 40 on the front.  That gives 950.  I currently weigh 230.  So with me on it we're looking at 1180 + whichever implement I'm using.

Going by the brochure my 2418  Power King weighs 937lb bare , + 264lb for loaded rear tires 200lb of wheel weights , so around 1400lb without counting the loader .  When I went looking for the weight of that in the owners manual I couldn't find it's weight but they  want you add up to 450 lb to the hitch beside what I all ready have on it

But this is a lowly AC 716. Not a huge tractor to begin with. No where near the class/size of an MF 1655. I'd expect those to be up there!

Hogzilla, best guess with me sitting on it, and plow attached would be in the neighborhood of 2,000 pounds. One of these days I'll go weigh it at the local scale.
