Honda Introduces a New Generation of Intelligent General Purpose Engines

The system consists of an oil level sensor inside the crankcase. Once the engine is up and running, the Auto Choke automatically returns to an optimal operating position. If you have an iGX orthe choke is automatic, so the sole lever is for fuel.

These engines also use CDI ignition with variable timing and a rev limiter. This additional power is achieved via an advanced combustion chamber design, the implementation of digital capacitive discharge ignition CDI with variable ignition timing, and an increased compression ratio. Auto Choke Low effort recoil starter with automatic decompression Camshaft profile is optimized for easy starting Large diameter recoil starter assembly Automotive-style ignition coil on spark plug Digital CDI with higher spark plug voltage Learn More.

If you ugx the light come on, try to shut down the motor as quickly and safely as possible. Plus, simple construction has minimized the number of parts, kgx the engine more reliable and easier to operate. To start an engine without electric start, locate the fuel lever lower lever and choke lever upper lever on the carburetor. The results include better all-around environmental performance and operating costs ugx actually decrease the more the engine is used!

We hope the new website re-design will help us achieve that,” says John Francis, director of marketing and technical support. By varying ignition with engine speed, these motors can produce more power over a wide RPM range. An oil return port positioned in the center of the reservoir prevents oil from accidentally flowing into the combustion chamber. Additionally, the iGX is honea for hojda users to operate, eliminating the need for manual manipulation of the choke and ig and making it ideal for rental applications.


In ix to increased fuel efficiency, the new GX engines will meet the EPA exhaust emission regulations without the hoda of a catalyst.

An exclusive Honda rotary-slinger lubrication system keeps oil in a completely misted state and circulates it using pressure fluctuations generated by the movement of the piston. Its comprehensive product line consists exclusively of environmentally advanced 4-stroke engines.

Electronic governor minimizes governor droop, increasing available power Learn More Allows the engine to respond significantly faster to the load. Benefiting both consumers and the environment, iGX technology results in lower fuel consumption, lower emissions, and lower noise ig reduced total engine running time and engine speed that can be lowered based on power demands.

Its lighter piston and other moving parts help keep vibration to a comfortable level. This facilitates consistent oil delivery. Mass production engines may vary from this value. Cooling is also improved by each of the lightweight aluminum pushrods being housed in a separate tube to achieve enhanced airflow.

Small engine timing belts are usually external and are subject to wear caused by dirt. Built-in passages effectively return the circulated oil to the oil reservoir from every part of the engine. This increases available power. The serial number and engine model on any iGX can be found on the crankcase directly above the oil drain plug. Spark arrester available Charge and lamp coils with multiple output options available Low profile versions available.

Another 20 winners were drawn for hoda through fifth place and received prizes including jackets, T-shirts and hats. No manual manipulation of the choke or throttle – Easier for inexperienced users to operate Wide fuel filler mouth with ratchet-type fuel filler cap Easy maintenance – ideal for rental applications Easy access connectors for flexible connection of remote control and for ECU programming Externally serviceable Oil Alert.


The new large GX engines increase fuel efficiency by 12 percent, the company said. Featuring four all-new models, the large GX engine line combines increased power and versatility with greater fuel economy in the same envelope. It can read engine conditions and adjust the governor and throttle, keeping the engine at just the right speed to meet current load demands. ECU fine tunes the throttle position to maintain a precise engine speed.


Honda iGX Engine Overview

When you put it all together with fewer parts you get an engine with reduced emissions and greater-than-ever durability. A truly innovative combination of a compact combustion igd, overhead cam configuration and uniblock construction significantly reduces fuel and oil consumption as compared to conventional side-valve engines. The muffler is located at the rear of the engine, while fuel is stored on the equipment itself instead of a tank bolted to the motor.

Features such as an electronically controlled governor, fully automatic choke and an automotive style electric starter are standard on the iGX series engines. Most models will shut down to protect the motor, but if a shutdown may be dangerous due to the type of attached equipment, the motor may keep running. For most normal engines, available power is decreased when the engine is approaching wide open throttle.

ECU enables drive-by-wire remote control operation of the engine and regulates functions such as honad position. Taking intelligence to a whole new level. What Makes an iGX engine different? The iGX is technologically advanced, offering you features and performance like no other small engine in the world. This substantially reduces both oil consumption and the emission of unburned oil in the exhaust.

A burnt fuse will keep the engine from starting. The system disengages automatically after the engine starts to prevent any power loss during normal operation.
