Picked this thing up for free today, pretty slick machine. Its relatively small, slightly larger than a JD318. VERY well built

it has a liquid cooled, two cylinder OHC Honda engine, rated at 18hp
selectable 4WD AND 4WS
Front and rear PTO, independent of each other.
Differential lock
H/L range transmission, 4spd (8)
Hydraulic lift

It fired right up with a fresh battery, needs a good carb clean. Tires don't hold air. It came with no attachments, and unfortunately they are extremely hard to find. Used mower decks are going for 7-800 alone, and the loader, rototiller, and snowblower attachments are all but non-existent.

My plans are too build a cat 0 or cat 1 3pt hitch for the rear (was an option, but again non-existent). and potentially a loader as well.

The engine is pretty neat, basically a carbureted, scaled down car engine, Very reliable, smooth running machines. Honda only produced this model for 5 years, i guess the price was too high and sales never took off.

Im actually still a moderator here, although i havent been active for years. I dont see any need to move it, while it was a good deal, it wasnt found online. It is certainly off topic.

As far as racing mower, no way man. I have two racing mowers, this thing is going to be a little workhorse.

Sweet find! That is one weird looking machine.

Probably a $10k machine new
It is weird looking! As far as price, im sure your close. The 2wd little brother was over 5, couldnt find msrp on this thing though.
