Product Information


Quality electricity supplied to keep industry working.

The Honda EM5500cxs generator is robust and reliable. They have the latest GX engines and they’re quieter than ever. With Honda’s very own voltage output technology you can trust them to run sensitive power tools safely for hours.

Honda D-AVR technology

Digital Automatic Voltage Regulator (D-AVR) has a significant advantage over the traditional AVR, giving a smoother and more efficient output. This new output technology has several application benefits over AVR, such as minimising flickering lights.

Made tough

Honda's EC generators are robust, dependable and require minimal maintenance. They are powered by their easy-starting, commercial grade, 4-Stroke GX engines and protected by a super-strong steel frame, ready to deal with the harsh conditions of a work site.

Always starts with ease

The recoil starter mechanism is light and smooth. For the ultimate convenience and effortless operation, selected models come with Electric Start.

Extended run-time

Most models in the range have a large fuel tank - adding run-time endurance to help keep you working for longer.


Rubber shock absorbers, which are positioned either side of the engine at 45°, significantly reducing the engine vibration of an already quiet machine. An optional wheel kit is available to improve mobility.

Auto throttle

Auto throttle automatically reduces the engine speed when appliances are turned off or disconnected. Conversely, the engine returns to its rated speed when appliances are turned on or reconnected.

Building Trust

First of all, make sure it’s a genuine Honda.

Just because it’s red, doesn’t mean it’s a Honda. High standards come at a premium, so don’t trust anyone who tells you they’ve got a product that can do the job just as well. These Specialist Open Frame generators are versatile and have 230V sockets for a variety of different power tools.

The power that works

It’s good to know you can trust the output from these generators, which is produced through a Digital Automatic Voltage Regulator (D-AVR). It’s a major improvement on traditional AVR and provides a much smoother, more efficient output for sensitive electronic equipment, delivering a stable wave of clean power (above left). It will put an end to flickering lights, which makes them ideal for emergency night work, too.

Ready For Work

Just pull the cord for instant power.

Practical sockets and controls make starting and running the generator quick and simple; particularly as the starter, choke, fuel tap, on-switch and plugs are all mounted on the same panel. This makes starting and operating the machine easy and convenient. And remember, our Oil-Alert™ Technology will automatically switch off the ignition if the oil drops below a safe level.

Smooth running

Honda has built a unique engine mount system into the durable steel frame. These rubber shock absorbers are positioned either side of the engine at 45˚ and significantly reduce the engine vibration of an already quiet machine. Nice and smoothly does it.

Fill Up And Forget

These generators keep on working, so you can too. They have running times equal to a day’s work.

They have an easy fill fuel cap so you don’t end up spilling fuel everywhere – there’s no mess with a Honda. And the fuel cap lets you check the fuel level without you needing to remove it – so you save time, too.

Keep on running

With running times of between eight and 12 hours they become reliable companions that are ready for work any day of the week. Once they’re up and running they’ll cope with any demand you make of them, reacting to any fluctuations in load.

Oil alert™

This is a useful function that prevents damage to your engine by automatically shutting the unit down if oil drops below a safe operating level.

Enhanced anti-vibration system

Honda's 45° inclined rubber engine mounts give superior vibration damping compared to industry-standard straight rubber mounts.

OHV 4-stroke engine

Powerful and efficient with trusted reliability – it must be a Honda. You’ll get easy starting in all conditions, with automatic decompression to reduce the pull force required.
