GC Series Standard Engines Once again Honda has demonstrated leadership with the introduction of the GC Series, a line of compact, lightweight four-stroke engines designed specifically for home-use power equipment applications. The GC Series offers the powerful, versatile functionality that can add great competitive value to any engine-powered product.
The Lightest Engines In Their Class and Dramatically Improved Sound Quality. A revolutionary combination of the world's first internal timing belt, a tough nylon overhead cam and uni-block construction has made the GC lighter and more compact than any engine in its class. Plus, simple construction has minimized the number of parts, making the engine reliable and easier to operate. Power equipment users and their neighbors will prefer the quiet operation offered by the GC Series' built-in timing belt. Valve train and gear noise have also been minimized for a better quality engine sound that is distinctly easier on the ears - a feature sure to be appreciated by users and bystanders alike.
Consistent, Dependable Power. Fast, Easy, Reliable Starting. The wide, flat, powerful torque offered by Honda's CG Series engines helps reduce engine speed drop associated with sudden load increases for smoother, less-troublesome all-around performance. GC Series engines feature a horizontal cross-flow intake port that smoothes the flow of fuel into the combustion chamber for quick, reliable starts that require no special skills. Automatic mechanical decompression further ensures easy starting.
Reduced Maintenance and Fuel Consumption. People and Planet - Friendly. A truly innovative combination of a compact combustion chamber, overhead cam configuration and uni-block construction significantly reduces fuel and oil consumption as compared to conventional side-valve engines. Also, simple construction reduces many potential maintenance needs, making Honda's GC engine one of the most efficient and cost-effective engines available. The high-efficiency combustion delivered by the OHC configuration helps Honda GC engines pass even the toughest CARB and EPA emission standards, making this engine both people and planet-friendly.
