I have a cub 185, and it is an amazing little tractor. Mine has creeper gear and the 3 point hitch. They are tuff machines but the common problems and complaints the lowboy guys have are this:
The shift forks aren't the best, and will break from time to time. They are easily replaced and readily available from Hamilton bobs, maybe even cub cadet specialties, who i prefer to deal with.
The guys without the creeper gear complain the machine doesn't go slow enough to more a good pass.
And finally, guys complain about the horse power, but I plow and disc 18 acres with mine and never have a problem with power. I think they get turned by the low hp rating, and don't realize what all you can do with 15-18 hp and proper gearing.
So to wrap this up, I absolutely love mine and couldn't imagine being without her, not to mention that four cylinder is one of the smoothest, quietest engines I've ever used in equipment.
