I have an outside chance to trade my '79 International 2-ton for a Cub lowboy 184. The tractor has a mower deck that is 60" I assume - I don't know the manufacture. It has been overhauled , no ammeter, and it has 3 point. Did the tractor come out with a piece of channel on the right hand side to carry the weight of the motor?

Am I crazy? He wants $ 2500 .00 for the tractor. The grill has been repaired. How hard are parts to come by?

ALL of the numbered lo-boys have channel/plate frames by the engine. One plate on each side. They are not weight brackets.

The $2500 price seems agreeable for its age/condition. The missing ammeter may mean electric issues are hiding within.

Overall, I think the 184's are best model of the loboy series. IH refined these enough to have ring gear starter, electric PTO and more added.

AND...they are IH red!!!!!!

Ken,

I meant that the channels were possibly in the frame to carry the load of the engine. This one is Yellow , not the one with the IH tractor grille , however I do know where there is one on a Kubota/ NH lot. Would this then be a Cub Cadet 184 ?

You need to check the serial # to be sure what you have . If I remember right it's on the left side up by the radiator . Boomer

If its yellow and has the zig-zag front grille, its a 154 or 185 lo-boy.

The 184's were red/white painted only and have the IH 66-86 series style front grille.

Ken,

Evidently the tractor is a 154. I looked at the number from the road and I probably misread the number with my old eyes. At any rate what is the tractor worth with the mower deck, 3 point hitch and supposedly a fresh over haul ?
