Honda GX270 Engine
Professionals rely on Honda Engines to deliver reliable, easy starting, fuel efficient performance, day in and day out. Choose from a range of engine models, suitable for a number of uses from commercial lawn & gardening to industrial equipment.
The GX270 was introduced in 2011, featuring new features, more power, quieter & better performance, lower fuel consumption, and lower emissions.
The GX270 is used in all sorts of applications. From Pressure Washers and Construction/Industrial equipment, to Tillers/Cultivators, Generators and Commercial Lawn & Garden Equipment, it can be found working hard all over Australia.
Agricultural Equipment, Water Pumps, and even Go Karts, are powered by the GX270.
FUEL EFFICIENT, HIGH OUTPUT OPERATION
A digital CDI ignition system with variable timing and an increased compression ratio combines with the GX270's Precision Camshaft design to offer 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 where you need it.
And the use of lightweight, noise-reducing materials and a forged steel crankshaft & rigid crankcase results in an exceptionally quiet engine - an improved piston design reduces mechancal noise, with an overall reduction of engine noise by up to 5 dB.
THE WHOLE PACKAGE
The GX270's ball bearing-supported crankshaft, cast iron cylinder sleeve, Helical cut gears and precision engineered components result in greater stability and lower vibration for you, no matter what the application.
With a simple Throttle Control, large Fuel Tank and Automotive Type Fuel Cap, Dual Oil Drains and Fills, an easily accessible Spark Plug and Heavy Duty Recoil Starter, the GX270's features go on and on.
