I know a guy that has one he uses to cut and bale hay. From what I understand they're pretty good tractors. I dream of having a one-ninety xt one day but for now a B-110 is big enough. -Chris

My grandfather has one, and each of my uncles has one. With three in the family, I'd say the 185 is a very good tractor. Has 75 drawbar hp and 85 belt hp. I've used my grandpa's quite a bit over the years (cultivating, mowing, hauling wagons, planting, post-hole digging, etc.) and I love it! DaveM

I have one that needs a little TLC, but not a bad tractor though. Would consider selling. Needs one brake. Does not jump out of any gear. Strong motor. Front end could stand a rebuild. I think it was a loader tractor before I got it?

May be wrong, but weren't the 180's, 185's, and 190's the models that had too light of a rear end for the engine power, and wouldn't stand a lot of heavy pulling? Seems to me that I read somewhere that these tractors used, basically, the same rear end gears as the WD's and WD 45's. Pat

Yes they were/are light in the rear end. I use to pull it in my younger years never did any good really to speak of except donate to the winner and have a lot of fun! As far as the same rear end as the WD's Im not sure? Kenny

Not much similarity between the WD and 180 except the company that manufactured them. The 180/190 were similar to the D-19. 180-185 never gave much mechanical problems except jumping out of 4th gear after it was ground in several times. The early 190 tractors had more HP than they could stand. Bull gears and pinion gears were light. The later tractors went to larger bull gears and axles, and a 4 pinion differential. As long as the pump was not turned up and the tractor was treated ok, they would last. By the time the 200 can along, the rear axle problems were mostly over.

It is a 1977 Allis Chalmers mod.185 crop hustler.Looks brand new, im assuming a complete restoration or a new paint, tires and decals to say the least.$7500.00 is the sticker price but I don't think I need it.Although it is a honey.

$7500.00 for a 185 isnt bad for a 72 hp tractor from the factory,the 190s were 89 hp with gas and 93 hp with xt with a turbo and the 200 replaced the 190 xt with 93 then latter 100 hp.The 185 had a perkins diesel in it.

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
