What can you tell me about a 184 lo-boy?

I know its not an offset, BUT, does anyone know anything good or bad about them? I saw one under a tree for sale, thought about going back to have a closer look. Looks good from a distance. Same motor and tranny as a regular cub, right? It is set up for mowing and looks like it might be better for that than a regular lo-boy.

Daniel, I have one in the barn to work on this summer. Nice little tractor. Does this one have the 3 point hitch? The only bad thing I know about them is that the clutch for the pto is electric and fairly expensive to replace / repair. I need one for mine. Do you mind saying what they are asking?

The 184 is by far the most refined of the low boys. The ring gear style starter and alternator are much improved over the 154 and 185. AND the 184 is painted red and styled like the 86 series so it HAS to be the best looking looking one.

The pto switch is part # 107372C1..............$ 20.50. The clutch coil is part # 126209C1............$ 418. Better save your tax return $$$ for this.

Big Dog,

I haven't caught the seller at home but if I find out the price I'll post it.
