Industrial Maintenance & Repairs

With a bit of TLC, your Honda will last even longer.

Maintenance & repair

Your Honda Dealer is best placed to carry out servicing on a regular, ongoing basis. But there’s also a lot you can do as an owner to keep your Honda in perfect (and safe) operating condition.

Keep it clean

A little bit of cleaning goes a long way – not only towards the working life and day-to-day operation of your machine, but also its residual value.

Pre-operation checks

Always perform an inspection before you start up the machine. Look at the Owner’s manual before you begin working and check the engine’s oil level.

Here’s a list of important safety precautions:

  • Make sure the engine is off before you start any maintenance or repairs.
  • Let the engine cool completely.
  • Be sure your work area is adequately ventilated.
  • Keep cigarettes, sparks and flames away from fuel, and fuel related parts.

Fuel deterioration

If maintained properly, your Honda should give you years of trouble-free operation. This includes the fuel system. If your power equipment is stored for a long time, it's best to drain the fuel system because petrol quality can quickly deteriorate. This will cause starting or running problems and, in some cases, damage to the fuel system.

Maintenance schedule

To help you to properly care for your Honda, we’ve included a maintenance schedule in your Owner’s manual. This lists the basic procedures you should undertake on a regular basis, and enables you to keep track of the maintenance you perform on your product.

Service record

It’s a good idea to keep your machine’s service record up to date with its maintenance schedule. This reduces your costs in the long run, and maintains your machine’s value – always a plus. Make sure servicing is always done by a Honda Dealer; that way you can be sure that high-quality Genuine Honda Parts – purpose built for your machine – are being used.
