More Reasons Why

Renowned Reliability and Quality.

Honda sets the standard for reliable, hard-working engines. Ours are built with high-quality components designed for optimum performance, even in the harshest environments. But don't just take our word for it. Honda stands behind our engines a three-year commercial warranty on all GX engines, 100cc and larger.
Or ask a Honda engine owner. Next time you visit a rental centre, see a landscape truck, or pass by a construction site, you'll probably see a Honda GX engine-powered piece of equipment. Stop and ask them what they think of the Honda engine. Chances are they'll tell you they wouldn't use anything else.
