Honda makes (made) tractors?

Recommended Posts

Guest
I didn't know Honda has a tractor. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7721183213&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1 It looks strange but 4WD and 4 wheel steering. Impressive! I checked Honda's website and couldn't find any tractors. Did they stop making them?

I finally found a little information on this tractor online. The tractor still looks very impressive to me. How many small tractors are made with 4 wheel steering? Why did they stop making or importing them? My guess is that they were just too good (read expensive) for the market here.

I wanted to buy a Honda tracor when I first was in the market 7 years ago. Right about then is when they stopped selling them. I had rented a Honda from the local Rent-A-Tractor shop. I was very impressed. The rental place said it was completely trouble-free. I was disappointed not to be able to buy a new one. I then came across a used Simplicity, and bought it. I now have 3 Simplicities, all bought used. I don't want a Honda anymore. Tacey

Well, MTD made one that was a total flop and failure...

True on the MTD and there was also a Craftsman with 4 wheel steering. I dont know the model but it's red and I know where it's parked. Do Steiners count? ;) I see the Hondas occasionally on ebay but they end up too high all the time. I would like to get one to see what makes it tick. Some were watercooled I believe -

yup, learned that from the simp. dealer in town. honda must have R&D shopped around and decided that using a simp. snowblower was probably the best route out there.

I actually first saw that Honda at my old Simplicity dealer outside Orland Park, IL. The dealer was really impressed by it, but it was extremely expensive. I'm not sure, but I want to say it was around $8k back in the mid to late 80s.

You're dog-gone right! I've had a Honda 3810 and 3813 and both of them needed starters. It cost $500 for the starter for the 3810 and I didn't feel like shelling out $350 for the starter for the 3813 so I sold it for $150 to a guy who wanted it for parts.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
