Horizontal Shaft Engines


Honda’s GX series engines are legendary for superior reliability and performance. And there’s no doubt about it: the GX200 lives up to the legend. Lower noise levels, lower vibration, and lower emissions – without sacrificing power output or performance. Common applications include pressure washers, generators, construction, industrial and agricultural equipment.


The GX200 ball bearing-supported crankshaft, cast iron cylinder sleeve, Helical cut gears and precision engineered components result in greater stability and lower vibration for you while operating. The use of lightweight, noise-reducing materials and a forged steel crankshaft & rigid crankcase results in an exceptionally quiet engine that make operation over long periods of time effortless.

The GX200 comes with a variety of features aimed at making it easy to maintain and in turn, extending the life of the engine. The oil alert, large fuel tank, easily accessible spark plug and large fuel cap are just some of the features that make using this engine easy to operate and care for.


The GX200's Precision Camshaft design offers precise valve timing and optimal valve overlap for better fuel efficiency. It draws on decades of Honda engineering with its OHV design, delivering increased efficiency and optimal power transfer for when and where you need it. The GX200 also incorporates a high compression ratio for better fuel efficiency.
