Heavy Duty Industrial Power



The EG5500CXS has an electric start feature. Now starts 'first time every time' has a whole new meaning.

Equipped with a full steel frame to ensure engine protection and aid transportation, this generator is also available with an optional four wheel dolly kit.

You'll also get added equipment and engine protection with AC/DC circuit breakers and oil alert, not to mention an extended operating time courtesy of the EG5500CXS's large capacity 24-litre fuel tank.




In keeping with Honda's reputation for smooth and quiet operation, the EG5500CXS is fitted with anti-vibration engine mounts and a large noise-suppressing muffler. With its 24L fuel tank you can keep working on those big projects with fewer costly interruptions.

Stable power delivery comes courtesy of Honda's highly advanced D-AVR (Digital Auto Voltage Regulator) which uses a microcomputer to precisely control output voltage, providing high quality stable electricity. This feature offers a greater level of stability than conventional AVR types resulting in reduced load on the devices driven by the generator, increasing their life and facilitating 100% performance.


Whether portable power is required for farming, industrial work, mining, camping, emergency services or domestic use, look no further. Designed and built with user convenience and environmental impact in mind.

All Honda generators feature advanced four-stroke engines for strong performance and fewer emissions. Honda's easy start technology for hassle-free starting even after long periods in storage is a great addition and they also run on standard unleaded fuel. The EG5500CXS is no exception.
