Just traded a project car I'd bought off a friend who needed money for a JD 185 Hydro. I'm not sure what I want to do with it. I've already got a mower (with sentimental value to my wife) so I don't need it, but I think it might be cool to go through and restore it. It runs well, does need a deck bearing, among other mostly cosmetic things I'm sure.
Could someone direct me to the correct sub forum where I can inquire further? The vintage tractor doesn't specifically list the 185 model number.
I have been able to decode that it is a 1988 JD 185 Hydro with the 46" deck. I also have the snowblower attachment that came with it.
Any ideas on value? I'm pretty sure I came out ahead straight $$ wise, but have no real clue of the value of these mowers. Pics below for fun!
