In 1953, Honda began manufacturing small engines for power generation. Then in 1973, Honda launched outboards, tillers and portable generators in the United States. This was followed by addition of power pumps to the available array of power equipment in 1975. Lawn mowers were added to the lineup in 1979 and snow blowers followed in 1983.
