Question Honda 350 TRX

I would like to purchase a 1986-89 350 TRX for use with a snow blade.
Are there any general problems with this machine that I should investigate before purchase? Thanks for you help.

Welcome to the forums. I believe as long as you get one that's been took care of, they're a great machine. We have quite a few members that own that model and should chime in.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

The only problem with buying that particular model is that those are becoming increasingly hard to find, and parts to them are very few and far between unless you want to go the OEM route which will cost you a fortune, if you want something that will have plenty of parts that are easy to get a hold of and is very reliable look at the fourtrax 250 or the 300 fourtrax, but if your dead set on a 350 fourtrax then look on craigslist just be weary of what your looking at.

The Fourtrax 250 is only 2wd, though. And yeah, some of the parts for the 350 have been discontinued.

good point helmut haha. well that narrows it down to the 300 which has plenty of power and a ultra 1st gear that will plow and pull anything that you need!

I love my 86 350. No problem pushing snow, but I built my own blade. I haven't really seen anything that is advertised to work with them.

i owned a fourtrax 300 and that did everything i could ever ask it to do. (i dont mud) i simply used it for towing. packing out elk and deer, and it did all of that for me. A+ machine. i upgraded 4 years ago to a foreman 400 and that thing blows me away. i would look into those too. a little bit more $$$ but man, they can plow, tow, and have great torque.

Tough machine but good luck finding parts. They've probably even discontinued some for it.

I have one from 86, I bought it 10 years ago and have been using and abusing it ever since with very little problems, (is an excelent plow, I also bought a parts machine at roughly the same time and have used a couple of parts off of it too. I have however come to accept the fact that it is hard to find parts for even Honda has discontinued some of the parts for it so my recommendation like the others is get something newer. or get two of them.
