Welcome!!!! The 185 is a really nice machine, and one on my "wanted" list. I've owned many Farmall Cubs, 154 and 184 Lo-boys, but never had my hands on a 185. They were only made in 1975 and 1976, with a total of about 6,300 units produced over the two years. By comparison, 154s were built from 1969 to 1974 and had a little over 29,000 units produced, and the 184 was built from 1977 to 1980 with about 8,500 units produced. So, they're not really rare, but there's definitely fewer of them around than the other two models.

Welcome! There's tons of great info here and if you don't see what you need after a quick search, just ask. There's some regulars on the site that I've found are always happy to help.

Oh yeah, we LOVE pictures! Got any of your tractor you can post? Mower deck? Implements? Mods? You get the idea.
