Honda makes more money from power equipment products than any other company in the world. $2.5 billion in 2014.
The numbers prove Honda is one of the most trusted power equipment brands in the world.
I trust them too. Here’s why.
I first started up our red Honda mower when I was 11. Mowing the lawn was fun for me. That house had 2 basketball courts worth of lawn. It took an hour to mow. And the grass catcher bag had to be emptied 3 times. I mowed the lawn every 2 – 3 weeks from May – Sept. Nearly 20 years later my parents still own and use that mower.
They make good cars too. My first 3 cars were Honda Civics. First one I bought for $3k when I was 17. It was light blue. The second was red and had a much better sound system. I crashed that one on the way to university – it was raining and I was tailgating (no injuries). My third was teal green. I sold it when I moved town because my job provided a work truck. But yeah, those cars never once failed me.
