For handheld applications, Honda's GX35 mini four-stroke engine replaces the GX31. Engine design is based on the same 360-degree-inclinable technology as the GX31, but is smaller, lighter and more powerful. Improvements include more power output, reduction in overall size, weight reduction, power-to-weight ratio, and power per cc of displacement. With ample low-speed torque, the unit does not need to be operated at wide-open throttle, which reduces noise and operator fatigue, increases fuel economy and decreases emissions.
