It begins with a great Honda engine.
One sought after and even used by
some of our competitors. From there
we designed a generator to work
with our engine for unprecedented
performance. A Honda generator is a
treat to the ears, operating in a refined
manner so all you notice is quality.
Yet other features deserve to be
heard, like the ease of portability:
from a lightweight model at only
thirteen kilograms, to wheel kits or
handles on many models. It’s 100%
genuine Honda quality, found only in
100% Honda Power Equipment.
