Thanks for your help on this, and Kent, thanks for taking the trouble to send me the craigslist listing.
Definitely answered my question that a sickle bar can be mounted. It is an excellent point however, as to how suitable the 184 would be for actual field mowing, even in a small orchard. The biggest problem might be the 3 speeds on the 184. For any kind of heavy hay cutting, the 184 with such a mower might be out of its league. It would seem if I did find a unit, I might go for the 22 with the steel gears, rather than the 222 with composite ones.
Thanks again to all who responded with help. This list is such a great resource for these machines. Hopefully, I'll be able to get to contribute something useful as I get to know this tractor better next season.
