Honda GX110

Honda GX110 engineThe Honda GX110 is a 0.11 l (107 cc, 6.5 cu-in) single-cylinder air-cooled four-stroke internal combustion gasoline engine manufactured by Honda Motor Company since 1983 for general-purpose applications, such as pressure washers, commercial lawn and garden equipment, tillers and cultivators, generators, construction or industrial equipment, agricultural equipment, small vehicles, water pumps.

The Honda GX110 engine has an overhead valve (OHV) design for increased efficiency and optimal power transfer, sophisticated air intake system, large capacity, multi-chamber exhaust system, and heavy-duty recoil starter. This engine used horizontal type carburetor with a butterfly valve, transistorized magneto ignition system, splash type lubricating system, and forced-air cooling system. The engine used a dual element (dry/semidry) air cleaner.

The GX110 engine produces 2.6 kW (3.5 PS) at 4,000 rpm of maximum horsepower and 6.68 N·m (0.7 kg·m, 5.2 ft·lb) at 2800 rpm of maximum torque.
