Plow or Tiller for 185

Thu May 08, 2014 8:38 am

I bought a 185 three years ago primarily for mowing and it does a good job on my 3 acres. I would like to use it to till or plow/disc a small garden. Will any type of hitch fit this machine so that I can plow or till with it?

If you have a 3-point hitch, then yes, it is a standard Cat 1 3-point hitch and any Cat 1 implements will fit. So, standard Cat 1 plow and disks will work.

You'll have trouble getting a tiller for the lo-boy because the PTO runs at engine speed instead of 540 rpm, runs the wrong direction, and has the wrong size PTO shaft. So, unless you find an actual IH Model 15 tiller that was actually built for the lo-boy, you won't find a tiller that will work on it.

If you don't have a creeper option, don't bother with the tiller. The tiller NEEDS both the 3-point hitch and the creeper.
