Proper Engine Maintenance is imperative in ensuring the reliability and longevity of your equipment. In this article we have taken the time to compile a comprehensive list of key service intervals and annual maintenance items to keep your Ground Hog Inc T-4 Trencher, HD99, C-71-5H, 1M5C & ModelONE Auger running!

It is no mistake that Ground Hog Inc. uses Honda® GX series Engines on all of their equipment. The GX series has been a proven workhorse for small equipment for decades and is a staple of reliability & dependability. It is by far the most popular engine option and that is why we select Honda® powered models exclusively. Here are some key recommended regular service items per Honda®'s Engine Manuals.
