ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

Quiet and reliable

Honda GCV engines offer a quiet, yet powerful and lightweight combination for a variety of demanding applications. Ideal for residential mowers and pressure washers, these engines pack a punch.

Compact and lightweight

The lightest engine in its class, the GCV160 features the world's first general purpose engine internal timing belt, which provides quiet operation. It features a compact combustion chamber, overhead cam design, and uniblock construction to reduce fuel consumption.

internal timing belt

An internal timing belt provides quiet operation, precise engineering and machined components resulting in low vibration. Small engine timing belts are usually external and are subject to wear caused by dirt. Honda’s internal timing belt runs in oil, eliminating the need for conventional drive gears. This improves lubrication, reduces the weight of the engine and provides quieter operation.

Easy to maintain and use

It boasts Honda’s Auto Choke System. This user-friendly system is eliminates levers and cables. The engine starts easily whether cold or hot and is ready to use immediately. Once the engine is up and running, the Auto Choke automatically returns to an optimal operating position.

Looking after your ending is made easy with easy access oil drain and spark plug. Easy engine maintenance is just one of the design features to help protect your engine and make it easy to operate.
