Honda engines are super reliable as we know, but when they need replacing the costs are very high. However Loncin produce a range of engines that reflect the Honda range and are a fraction of the cost.
For example a 13hp GX390 replacement from Loncin is £384.00 incl VAT and represents a saving of about 50% over the Honda equivalent. These engines have been in use at Sweepfast for about 3 years now and only one serious failure has occurred. These engines are run for 10 hours a day at full throttle making it a good test of the durability of these little engines.
