Honda EM5500S Multi-purpose Generator 5500W

The Honda EM5500CXS generator is a 5500w machine that has an electric start for easy use and provides a lengthy continuous run time. This model has an enhanced anti-vibration system which significantly reduces noise levels, and the unit's tubular frame design is reliable and rugged enough to withstand tough site conditions.

This high-performance model features digital technology to provide optimum efficiency, including an intelligent automatic voltage regulator (i-AVR) which permits the delivery of smoother, cleaner power; and an auto-throttle which automatically adjusts the engine speed when appliances are turned off/on or disconnected/reconnected.

This unit is ideal for professional users who require a robust, dependable machine which provides longevity. It is suitable for a wide range of applications, including construction, hospitality and home back-up.


Suitable For

  • Home back-up
  • Hospitality units
  • Sensitive lighting
  • Sensitive construction equipment
  • Sensitive industrial equipment
  • Emergency services


What are the Most Important Features of the Honda EM5500CXS?

  • Intelligent automatic voltage regulator - Provides a cleaner, smoother output by controlling the power electronically to compensate for any spikes in voltage and frequency.
  • Eco-throttle - Smart engine technology which automatically adjusts the engine's speed to precisely match the load. This saves fuel, extends the engine life and reduces operational noise.
  • Auto-throttle - Automatically reduces the engine speed when appliances are turned off or disconnected, and returns to rated speed when appliances are turned on or reconnected.
  • Auto-choke - Intuitively sets the choke to give optimum starting and running in all conditions.
  • Electric start - Effortless starting at the simple push of a button.
  • Oil alert - Shuts the engine down automatically if the oil level drops below a safe amount. This prevents damage to the engine and keeps you safe also.
  • Excellent run time - Great fuel efficiency with up to 8 hours of run time at rated load on a single tank of fuel.
  • Circuit breaker - Avoid equipment damage or personal injury in the event of a short circuit when using the power outlets.
  • Anti-vibration system - Rubber engine mounts which are inclined at 45° considerably dampen vibration levels and provide lower operational noise, allowing you to use the machine for longer in greater comfort.
  • Robust construction - The welded and powder-coated tubular steel frame is designed to withstand harsh worksite conditions, but is still lightweight and easy to lift.
  • Superb reliability - The OHV series 4-stroke engine provides amazing durability and an easy starting every time.
  • Switchable voltage - Choose between 240v for running standard appliances and 110v for running power tools.
