" I have used Honda engines for over three decades and have been consistently pleased with their performance, value pricing, wide range of sizes and applications, and their reliability.
When I send a product out the door, I know that this engine is a perfect match for the heavily constructed woodsplitter that it will power.
The engine is quiet, easy on fuel, starts easily, and really holds up. "

Runs smoothly, quietly doing its job to make this homeowner's model woodsplitter the talk of the neighborhood.

Great Engine

" I was upgrading this engine on an existing log splitter. It originally had a Honda GX160 engine on it. The GX240 is such a smooth engine. It did the job perfectly. If you can afford it, always go with the Honda GX series gas engines in your application. "

Honda 240GX

from Henderson, NC
" I have been using this engine for over 8 years to run pumps to pressure test waterlines that we install. I have seen many pumps worn out from non-stop running for hours on end to pump up 48" to 102" pipe lines. We just change the pressure pump and keep runnig this same engine. We have never covered this engine up. We have always left it out in the weather hardly ever changed the oil in it and it will start ever time on the 1st or 2nd pull every time.
This is a well built engine and I highly recommend it as a trouble free engine.

Fantastic small engine

" Like the other Honda engines I have, this one was no different. It starts easy, runs smooth and has plenty of power for it's size. If you're looking for a small engine, even though they cost a little more than other brands, don't look any further than a Honda. "
