Honda Engines Develops Cyclone Air Cleaner
The 2016 World of Concrete show in Las Vegas may not sound like a major destination for automakers, especially with the Detroit and Chicago auto shows going on this season, but Honda still found time to make some news at the international event, which is dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries. Honda took time today at the show to introduce a newly designed Cyclone Air Cleaner, which will be made available on select Honda GX Series commercial engine models next year.
Beginning in 2017, select Honda GX160, GX200, GX270, and GX390 engines will be offered with the new air cleaner.

The Cyclone has a more compact design than the outgoing legacy air cleaner, enabling it to fit more tightly within the overall shape of each GX engine model. The new Cyclone Air Cleaner design targets OEM applications that rely on reduced overall engine dimensions, and also offers superior filtration efficiency with a triple-cleaning chamber that should come in handy when used in commercial applications where the equipment operates is used in dusty conditions.
“The Honda GX Series, our legendary family of commercial grade engines, provides durable power, fuel efficiency, and quiet operation for a host of demanding commercial, construction and rental applications,” said Scott Conner, senior vice president of Honda Power Equipment. “With the introduction of a new Cyclone Air Cleaner on select Honda GX engine models, customers can look forward to the same premium filtration performance in a more compact envelope—an ideal configuration for equipment that operates in rugged and dusty environments.”

The new Honda Cyclone Air Cleaner delivers the same performance as the current one, but in a smaller package that is perfect for OEM applications. Two of the larger Honda GX Series engines, the GX270 and GX390, as well as two mid-sized GX engines, the GX160 and GX200, will be offered with the new Cyclone Air Cleaner.
