Honda’s Rammer & Pressure Washer Engines Highlight ConExpo Display


Honda Engines will showcase a number of products at booth #S84834 at ConExpo-Con/Agg, including the new Cyclone Air Cleaner, available soon on the Honda GX160, GX200, GX270 and GX390 engine models. With a smaller footprint and a more compact design than the legacy cleaner it replaces, the Cyclone Air Cleaner fits within the overall engine shape.  The smaller design specifically targets OEM applications where engine dimensions are critical. The new Cyclone Air Cleaner offers a triple-cleaning chamber that is particularly useful in commercial applications where power equipment operates in extremely dusty conditions.

Also on display will be the Honda GXR120 general purpose engine, a model developed as power for rammers.  Offered as a second power option to the reliable GX100 engine, the GXR120 engine is capable of meeting the demands that rammers require of the engine, frame and operator.  With a displacement of 121 cc, the engine can appropriately power 110-lb. to 175-lb. rammers at multiple altitudes.  Additionally, a special cast-iron cylinder sleeve and a high carbon-steel, dual-ball bearing crankshaft provide increased engine strength for rammer applications.  To further enhance engine durability, steel has been incorporated in the design for makes the recoil starter and fan cover.

Honda’s GX pressure washer optimized commercial series engines make their debut in 2017. These engines were specifically designed for direct-drive pressure washer applications, and the series is available with Honda GX160, GX200, GX270 and GX390 engines. The model lineup delivers increased power output in the GX200 and GX390 series engines. A new feature for these engines is a fixed throttle which to meet the needs of the rental markets.
