The 50 inch deck or Haban deck would help this sell, these late 80's tractors were being built dang good, every bit as good as the JD318's, with more attachments

I agree it's a nicely built tractor but more attachments than a 318? I couldn't find much info on the CC attachments available for it.  Did they make a loader, tillers etc for that tractor? The 318 was a popular machine because it was so versatile, with front and rear PTO's available and power steering, 3 point hitch etc. The 1864 was also built from 93-97, 10 years after the 318 started production, so they had 10 years to improve on the 318 if that was their goal.

Probably a fatal attribution error on my part about the attachments, just because I see waaaay more Cub 1800's down this way than 318s. that and my affinity to the Kohler magnum twin over the Onan. Around here you never see rear lifts on Deere's, and Cubs outnumber Deere's by quite a bit, I do stand by my assertion that the 1800's were ever bit as good as the 318s and in fact not a great deal different. The question I had with JD tractors was the abundance of hydraulic ports, but not that many hydraulic attachments, at least not around here. The loader that fit on the 318 was essentially the same as the first 318 and as they built from the early 80's or before, no problem, but as for the Cub there were loaders available on the 2072, 2082, 2084 models, I think that Cub saw sense in having a special loader for the 1800s. Please do not think I am saying one was was better than the other, I'm not, just around here not that many big Deere's or their attachments, and the thing about the ports????

The 318 had 2 front hydraulic circuits for use with the 54 front blade angle and lift. That was probably the single most popular attachment after mower decks.

Cubs of that vintage are rare up here. 318's are more common but decent ones are hard to find. I still kick myself for not buying a Cub 1914 I had a chance at a few years ago. It had a loader and a snowblower with it. The 2 attachments that I would use most.

As a side note, most tractor bias, such as I have demonstrated, comes from a certain amount of ignorance or naivette about the machine itself. I look forward to discussing more about the John Deere tractors so as not to appear foolish or biased. Thanks

Mike, this would be a much less interesting place if we had only one brand of tractor to discuss. I happen to have JD tractors and know a fair bit about them. I enjoy learning about the other great brands and your comment about the CC being well built is the sort of thing I file away in my memory in case one comes up for sale near me.

I agree, both brands offered a superior product, demostrated by their sales and longevity
