H type engine (to power agricultural equipment, 1953)

Enriching people's everyday life through technology


The desire to "help people enjoy happier lives through technology," in light of the hard work endured by people in farming and other activities, the power products business grew out of a bedrock vision embedded in Honda's manufacturing to create "things useful for people's lives." It has now grown into another major pillar of today's Honda. Starting with an engine for agricultural equipment launched in 1953, the power products business has now passed its 60th year of offering an ever-expanding set of products including generators and tillers that help people get things done.

Further evolution of power to help people's lives in snowy regions

Honda's snow throwers are aimed at achieving a proper balance of friendliness towards man and nature through the pursuit of outstanding ease of operation and environmental performance.Honda is hard at work on a series of new small snow throwers equipped with a cross-auger mechanism that uses its excellent snow removal capability even to handle packed snow.Also in the works is the HSL2511 large snow thrower, the world's first gasoline-powered snow thrower equipped with an electronic fuel injection system and featuring a one-of-a kind auger assist function---a mechanism that puts the snow-removal skills of experts into the hands of less experienced users.
