This increases available power.

An oil return port positioned in the center of the reservoir prevents oil from accidentally flowing into the combustion chamber.

The iGX is based on the GX Series engine, the same design that has been a cornerstone of small engine equipment across the industry, used in everything from generators hondx pressure washers.

Along with improved power, the new GX series of engines provides a reduction in noise and vibration. We are pleased with the effort that HMI is making in this regard and are excited about the part we can play.

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. Honda announced today that it is introducing a revolutionary new generation of intelligent computer controlled iGX general purpose engines that will set a new standard for ease of use, value fuel efficiency, and quiet operation.

Its comprehensive product line consists exclusively of environmentally advanced 4-stroke engines. Its lighter piston and other moving parts help keep vibration to a comfortable level. In addition to a fresh, colorful appearance, this new design offers better organization of content and a much cleaner, easier navigation including:.


Attendees will also learn how to increase their familiarity and favorability — the two key drivers of master-brands — on a limited budget, as well as how to position their company and brand in the new economic landscape while reaping the opportunities it offers, and creating a sustainable competitive advantage. If you have an iGX orthe choke is automatic, so the sole lever is for fuel. Noise has been reduced up to 5 decibels. Small engine timing belts are usually external and are subject to wear caused by dirt.

The four grand prize winners were: Additionally, the iGX is easier for inexperienced users to operate, eliminating the need for manual manipulation of the choke and throttle and making it ideal for rental applications. Honda recommends having the carburetor set up for high altitude use if your motor spends most of its time running at altitudes above 5, feet 1, m. For equipment where space is at a premium, Honda offers low profile versions of these engines. Low Power at High Altitude It should be no surprise when engines make less power at higher altitudes due to the thinner air, but in the case of these engines, this loss in power is due to an incorrect fuel mixture.

Benefiting both consumers and the environment, iGX technology results in lower fuel consumption, lower emissions, and lower noise through reduced total engine running time and engine speed that can be lowered based on power demands.

Once the engine is up and running, the Auto Choke automatically returns to an optimal operating position. Electronic governor minimizes governor droop, increasing available power Learn More Allows the engine to respond significantly faster to the load.

Spark arrester available Charge and lamp coils with multiple output options available Low profile versions available. ECU enables drive-by-wire remote control operation of the engine and regulates functions such as throttle position.

We hope the new website re-design will help us achieve that,” says John Francis, director of marketing and technical support. HMI has established a national network of arborists and professional tree care companies to support these products and services. If you see the light come on, try to shut down the motor as quickly and safely as possible.

It offers hond highest V-Twin compression ratio on the market. Mass production engines may vary from this value. Internal Combustion Engine Products: Honda iGX engines will, for the first time in the power equipment industry, feature an integrated electronic control unit ECU that delivers complete drive-by-wire remote kgx capability and controls key aspects of engine operation.

Another 20 winners were drawn for first through fifth place and received prizes including jackets, T-shirts and hats.
