Detailed Description

The GX series Honda Engines carried by Rittenhouse are OHV Horizontal shaft Commercial grade engines. They are commonly found on sprayers, compressors, pumps, pressure washers, lawn equipment, chippers, go-karts, concrete saws, golf turf equipment and more.

Honda Engines are the engine of choice to drive lawn and landscape sprayers assembled at Rittenhouse. For turf care our most popular combination is the 5.5 Horse Power Honda Model GX160QA with the Hypro Model D30 Pump.
