29 YEARS AGO IN DIRT WHEELS
On the front cover of our November
1985 issue we featured Honda’s all-new 4x4 quad. Before then, there
was no such thing as a four-wheel-drive quad and there weren’t too
many people talking about a need
for one. The Dirt Wheels crew back
then wasn’t quite sure what to expect
when they rode it for the first time.
However, after a day in the saddle,
they discovered how easily it made it
across tough mud holes and climbed
its way over big rocks. At that point
they approved of Honda’s decision
to make a 4x4 quad and welcomed
other manufacturers to build one too.
And, of course, they did.
John Deere’s latest Gator 850 RSX comes with a new
look for 2015. Next year, both this model and the 825i will
be available with Midnight Black bodywork, dump bed,
seats and accented wheels. The special-edition 850 will
sell for $16,000 through any John Deere dealer.
