H4518 or 4514 Accessory Catalog

Hello gents.
I have a mint H4518 with 38" deck and bagging kit that is my pride and joy.

Does anyone have a complete list of the available accessories that Honda used to sell for these?
I would love to get the part number for the brush guard, so I can start looking for one.

Also... would love to learn about other accessories in general.

Any info will be appreciated.

Thanks!

I wasn’t aware of a brush guard offered for these. I’ve a 4518 since new, & bought a 4514 a few years ago for parts. As far as I recall there weren’t more than a handful of accessories offered for these models (?). For sure I know of two mower deck options 38”, 45”. The bagger attachment (which we had been told only fits the 38” deck, so that’s what we have). There’s the plow blade & snow blower, then of course little do dad’s like tire chains, mower discharge chute, & a rear bracket for 6x 25lb weights.

Re: H4518 or 4514 Accessory Catalog

Don't overlook the belt driven "power bagger" available for the 42" deck.

Also there was a 46" deck available as I had all three here a few years ago.

Wish I had kept that 46" model, but the Wife did not like the fact the the 4514 drive returned to neuteal everytime she used the brake pedal. Otherwise a great machine with the most comfortable seat on the market.

Sending a "PM" to "Robert @ Honda" would probably result in copies of the various option brochures being posted here for you. Robert has been with Honda for years and is also a member here on MTF.

Wow, 4518 you've had since new? Congratulations, great to see original owners keeping their machines like you did.
Here's a picture of the guard I found online:

Larry, would you mind elaborating on the differences between the three decks? I read somewhere that the 38" had the most powerful vacuum, is that accurate? Regarding the belt-driven "power bagger", is it the "fan looking attachment" I've seen on some of these tractor decks? Was its sole purpose to push debris in the bags, since normal vacuum often resulted in clogged tube? Do you know why it was only available on the 42" deck?

Did it have a seat specific to that model? Or was it an aftermarket seat, perhaps?

Yes, I've talked with Robert in the past, good point. Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks, all.

Yeah, we bought the 4518 new from HTA dealer back in prob 91-92? Of course then I was 10 or so so it wasn’t quite mine but I sure did treat it like it was! Believe me, I loved it with all my heart but being young/dumb I hate now to admit that I did things with that tractor that I shouldn’t have, everything from off roading to towing cars & everything inbetween. But with all that said, my dad still uses it to this day from mowing to blowing.... still runs like a top (which says everything for quality & that 18hp twin!).

Sorry to keep rambling but a fun fact: of course I’d always wanted a 5000/5013/5518 since I saw them at dealer when we got the 4518. With that said, in 8th grade when I started welding/tech classes in school, one of my projects was fabricating a roll-bar (ROPS) for the 4518 to five it that same look that I loved like the 5000 series! Funny thinking about it now. But on that same note, 2 years ago I fulfilled my childhood dream & now own my own 5518!! Truly means the world to me!

Oh, & that brush guard is nice! If only ours had that growing up, the grille would look A LOT better than it does today! I bet you could find some similar brush/grille guards, bunperette, push bar, etc, from other make/model tractors that you could retrofit on your Honda as well. Or of course make your own out of pipe, tube, or even elec.conduit. Just a thought

The 38" 2 blade deck used one "medium" high lift blade and one "very" high lift blade and filled the grass catcher no problem if the grass was fairly dry. When the grass was heavy with moisture, it would sometimes get stuck and plug up the tube which became a real pain.

To get around this, I initally I modified the deck discharge opening to better coincide with the bagger tube entrance and that helped a fair bit. There are pics somewhere on the forum.

The real solution was using two of the "very" high lift blades on (both sides) the 38" deck. It worked so well, the discharge grass would pass right over the first bag and pile up on top of the second until the pile eventually fell into that first bag and filled it too.

The 42" and 46" are both 3 blade decks and require the additional boost from the belt driven blower to get the discharge up and into the bags.

I believe the 46" deck was intended for a 4518 but worked great on one of my 4514s. Wish I had kept it.


Did it have a seat specific to that model? Or was it an aftermarket seat, perhaps?

Yes, I had OEM 4514 spring seats, far bigger / softer / more comfy than the smaller / harder 3810/3813 seats. My butt liked them so much, I installed a couple of them on both my Ford loader tractor and my White T&C snowblower tractor. Mind you, they both need recovered, but they are Honda originals and comfy.


Yes, I've talked with Robert in the past, good point. Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks, all.
And yes, Robert is definitely the man to ask about factory brochures etc.
