185 mowing!

Postby SONNY » Sat Oct 01, 2011 9:30 pm

Finally got the 185 to mow today,--got the yard done, then 1/2 mile of tall roadside, then bush hoged some tractor high pigweeds then it got dark so I had to quit for today!---I was beat anyhow, but next session I go after the orchard!-----3 year old fruit trees are closing the gap fast between them and its a little tricky getting around in there but I get what I can and do the rest with the walk behind weed mower and trim with the DR. trimmer!
Tractor pto engine belts are now breaking tight but the sucker now does some serious mowing after me fighting it all summer trying to get it to mow! thanks; sonny

Average price for a int154 i would look at ebay but i'll guess its between $1,200 to $1,500 for a runner with a mower or more attachments. Some 154's are runners and lookers will bring up to $3,500 with a mower. It depends on the condition mechanically and how it looks/runs. Creeper tranny is a +, 3pt hitch is a plus too. Remember these aren't quick sellers nor in demand too so start low price wise and haggle.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
