Four-stroke engines are better. Period.More fuel efficient. Quiet. Less smoke. Less odor. Lower emissions. More torque. Less hassle. Smoother performance. Not to mention legendary Honda reliability.
There are so many advantages to a four-stroke engine, we need another page to list them all.
Easy to start
There’s a reason Honda engines are renowned for easy starting. With our superior design, Honda trimmers are incredibly easy to start! No hassle, no fuss. Just a quick, consistent, easy start.
Easy and comfortable to use
Honda trimmers are comfortable and easy to use, from day one.
- No mixing of gas and oil, which means fewer headaches for you.
- Excellent balance and low vibration makes them easy to hold and work with.
- Quiet, low maintenance operation.
Lower cost to operate
Honda trimmers are considerably more fuel-efficient than similar 2-stroke models. Less fuel means less cost to operate.
In fact, if you’re a commercial landscaper, a Honda trimmer can pay for itself in less than a year based on fuel and oil savings alone.
Honda trimmers are designed to take on the tough jobs. Even thick grass and heavy brush don’t bog them down.
- Engines provide strong low-end torque characteristics and ample power for demanding conditions.
- Many jobs can be performed at partial throttle, further increasing fuel efficiency.
Flex Shaft with Limited Lifetime Warranty
Honda’s flex shaft design is lighter, stronger, and has a longer life than a solid type of shaft. In fact, it offers the strongest torsional strength in the industry, as well as longer life through the ability to absorb shock. It’s much easier to service. And the flex shaft offers all of these benefits without increasing vibration or operator fatigue.
We’re so confident in the performance and durability of our flex shaft, we back it with a limited lifetime warranty.
Reliable, durable design
Honda trimmers are built to last.
- Commercial grade 4-stroke overhead cam GX engine
- Heavy duty gear box
- Double ball bearings on both input and output shafts
Improvements to the output shaft seal allow better lubrication of the bearing on the HHT series as well.
Honda trimmers are remarkably quiet. Your ears will notice the difference! Quiet operation is due in part to Honda’s four-stroke engine technology and superior design.
Honda offers Quiet Line™ standard on all our models. This premium line reduces the noise level by another 5 decibels.
And because Honda trimmers offer strong low-end torque, you can do many jobs at partial throttle, reducing noise levels even further.
What about the weight?
You may have heard others try to characterize Honda trimmers as being heavy.
The reality is Honda trimmers use the lightest engines in their class. They have very similar weights to other commercial grade trimmers – even competitive two-stroke models. In some cases, our units are even lighter!
This is a case where the product specs just don’t tell the whole story. Most of our competitors list their trimmers’ weight without the cutting head. In a real life situation, you’ll find that their models are similar in weight to the comparable Honda trimmer.
And, because Honda trimmers have excellent balance and low vibration, they are actually more comfortable to use over long periods of time. Add in the quality, fuel efficiency, durability, and performance offered only by a Honda trimmer, and there’s just no comparison.
The bottom line: don’t just look at the numbers in a brochure. Instead, ask your dealer for a demo. We think you’ll find that comparing apples to apples, the Honda is a winner.
