    Bulletproof Mowers!They Had The Single Cylinder Kawasaki 17hp Engine.They
    Usually Had A 38" Cut Or 46" Cut Mower Deck.The Mower Decks Were Rugged And Seemed To Last as Long As The Tractor Itself.My Brother In-Law Bought A 185 W/46" Cut Mower Deck(Hydrostatic Version) In 1986,And Still Runs It And Mows Nice.Great Little Mower.::weightlifter:

    I have a 160 which is the same tractor only a smaller engine. I love it. I've plowed with it for four years now and never had a problem.

    You will enjoy that 180! They are good old Lawn Tractors! I really like my JD 160! Great Kawasaki 13 1/2 hp engine!
