The 184 has the alternator and the 185 has the starter/generator.
Either one does the starting/charging job well. Both tractors are 12v Negative ground. For a spray rig you might benefit from the increased amperage available with the alternator. I have a sprayer on my 184. It does eat some amps but it is within the capabilities of the 184. Never had a dead battery. (yet)
