Horizontal Shaft Engines


Perfect for domestic applications and light use, the GP160 is designed to power those odd jobs around the home. From pressure washers to water pumps to generators, it will help get the task done reliably and on time.

Key features:

Over Head Valve engines (OHV)

It draws on decades of Honda engineering - with its OHV design, delivering increased efficiency and optimal power transfer for where you need it. A success overseas, its introduction into Australia further reinforces Honda's reputation as a company that helps people get things done.

Fuel Efficient and Low Noise

The GP160-200 Precision Camshaft design offers precise valve timing and optimal valve overlap for better fuel efficiency. A ball bearing-supported crankshaft and precision engineered components result in greater stability and lower vibration for you, no matter what the application. The use of lightweight, noise-reducing materials and a forged steel crankshaft and rigid crankcase results in an exceptionally quiet engine that incorporates a large capacity, multi-chamber exhaust system. With a simple Throttle Control, large Fuel Tank and Automotive Type Fuel Cap, Dual Oil Drains and Fills, an easily accessible Spark Plug and Recoil Starter, the GP160-200 is there to help you out.
