You got it. The engineers comb through warranty claims routinely look for hot spots. They have the option to call our dealers and request them to turn in failed parts or sometimes entire products. The model engineer plays "CSI" to see where the real problem may lie, and takes the necessary action. This could be a simple change to the manufacturing procedure, a revised part, or issuing a service bulletin.Thanks Robert! :cool
So is that were they [snip] dissect mowers returned under warranty to figure out what failed to see if any design improvements can be made?
Yes, Honda exited the riding equipment business back in 2000; the last tractor was a hybrid project, built in the John Deere factory in Horicon, WI, it had a Deere chassis and deck with a Honda V-twin engine and paint; there were 18 and 20 hp versions. I wrote the owner's manual and shop manuals, and wish I'd kept the one I had:Kind of drooling over the 6522. Has Honda gotten out of the tractor business all together?
Wow, that is really neat!I wrote the owner's manual and shop manuals
