GC160

Reliable, Lightweight Power. It must be the GC160.

INTRODUCING THE GC160

GC160

COMMON APPLICATIONS

Specifically designed for home-use power equipment applications, the GC160 provides an ideal source of power for a variety of consumer products.

Tillers/Cultivators, Pressure Washers, Agricultual Equipment and Water Pumps can be found around Australian homes, powered by the GC160.

Accredited Honda OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) use the GC160, so you know that it’s a reliable product.

GC160

FUEL EFFICIENT, HIGH OUTPUT OPERATION

The GC160 features a compact combustion chamber, overhead cam design, and uniblock construction to reduce fuel consumption.

Powerful torque across a wide RPM range helps reduce engine speed drop from sudden load increases.

And by incorporating an easily accessible spark plug and oil drain & fills, as well as a proven lifetime timing belt design, the GC160 is easy to use and maintain.

GC160

AN OVERALL PERFORMER

The lightest engine in its class, the GC160 features the world’s first general purpose engine internal timing belt, which provides quiet operation.

Valve train and gear noise is minimised, and it features a tough resin overhead cam for better durability and quietness.

And with a charcoal canister built into the fuel cap and without the need for a catalyst, the GC160 is Emissions Compliant (contact Honda for more info).

2 Year Domestic Warranty

2 YEAR DOMESTIC WARRANTY

The GC160 is covered by a Honda 2 Year Domestic Warranty, to give you peace of mind wherever you might be operating it.

And, of course, if anything should happen while the GC160 is working hard, there’s a network of 450+ authorised Honda dealers across Australia who will be happy to help you out of a jam.

So put it to the test; the GC160 will deliver the power and reliability synonymous with Honda.
