New Honda V-Twin Spline Shaft Engines

Posted on February 15, 2012

Honda Engines has introduced all-new spline shaft models of its V-twin general purpose engines. Honda said the new spline shaft brings an increased ease of assembly and connection with a more compact design for V-twin engine users working with hydraulic power pump industrial products.

Offered in horizontal engine configurations, the new spline shaft V-twin engine models will offer construction customers more flexibility to install engines directly to a variety of diverse applications. Specifically, Honda said the GX630 and GX690 V-twin engines will feature this new shaft. These models are targeted for commercial, rental and turf applications that include hydraulic powerpumps, such as vibratory rollers, trenchers and other hydraulic power pump machines.

The GX630 is a 688 cc, OHV design with a net power output (to SAE J1349) of 20.8 hp at 3600 rpm. The GX690 is also a 688 cc OHV design with an output of 22.1 hp at 3600 rpm.
