COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT
The lightest engine in its class, the GCV160 features the world’s first general purpose engine internal timing belt, which provides quiet operation.
It features a compact combustion chamber, overhead cam design, and uniblock construction to reduce fuel consumption.
And a tough resin overhead cam results in durability and quietness – two elements that you, your family or your employees will thank you for.
QUIET, SIMPLE PERFORMANCE
An internal timing belt provides quiet operation, and precision engineered and machined components result in low vibration.
An Auto Choke System is available, and with easily accessible oil drain & fill and spark plug, not to mention a proven lifetime timing belt design, the GCV160 is easy to use and maintain.
And there’s a Honda blade brake clutch assembly available for lawn mower applications, should you require it (optional extra).
2 YEAR DOMESTIC WARRANTY
The use of high quality materials, fit, and finish, paired with a simple construction, reduces many potential maintenance needs that might be found on competing engines.
But just in case, the GCV160 is covered by a comprehensive Honda 2 Year Domestic Warranty (90 Day Commercial Warranty).
And to further sweeten the deal, the GCV160 is backed by Honda’s network of over 400 authorised dealers country-wide, who are ready to help you out.
