Honda’s GX series engines are legendary for superior reliability and performance. And there’s no doubt about it: the GX160 lives up to the legend. Lower noise levels, lower vibration, and lower emissions – without sacrificing power output or performance. GX series engines offer premium features and quality.
Common Applications Include: Agricultural equipment, Air compressor, Chipper/shredders, Concrete saws, Generators, Go-karts, Pressure washers, Pumps, Small construction equipment, Reel-type lawn mowers, Commercial lawn and garden equipment, Tillers / cultivators, Construction / industrial equipment, Agricultural equipment, Water pumps
Fuel Efficient, High Output Operation
Precision camshaft design offers precise valve timing and optimal valve overlap for better fuel efficiency and the OHV design increases efficiency and optimal power transfer. The GX160 also comes with a high compression ratio for better fuel efficiency.
The GX160’s heavy duty recoil starter and automatic mechanical de-compression system makes starting a breeze.
With its sophisticated air intake, helical cut gears, forged steel crankshaft and rigid crankcase, the GX160 has reduced mechanical noise due to light weight, noise-reducing materials.
Easy to use and maintain
The GX160 is fitted with a simple throttle control, large fuel tanks with dual oil drains and fills, an easily accessible spark plug, an automatic mechanical de-compression system plus an easy and convenient, heavy duty control box.
Honda’s precision engineered components result in lower vibration and the ball bearing supported crankshaft creates greater stability.
Standard warning system protects the engine from severe damage during a low engine oil situation.
