Suzuki 4hp - An Introduction
Info Block Description: 

A new model launched in the UK in mid 2016, the DF4A model is now only new Suzuki 4hp outboard engine for sale in the UK market in 2018.
 
The Suzuki DF4A outboard engine is one of three very similar engines in the Suzuki range: these being the almost identical DF4A, DF5A and DF6A models. The Suzuki DF4 engine has always been a best seller here at Pennine marine and the new "go faster" sleek styling of the DF4A will, we are sure, make it a best seller here in the UK. The Suzuki DF4A was completely restyled, so making it slimmed and sleeker.
 
Whilst it was based on the very well-proven DF4, the Suzuki DF4A was revised "under the hood" to make it a bit lighter (admittedly not much). Accordingly the Suzuki DF4A outboard is now the lightest outboard engine in the 4hp engine class, with the Suzuki DF4A weighting in at just 24kg.  
 
Very importantly, the Suzuki DF4A was revised from the earlier model, so that all the internal oil-ways were changed. this does not sound very important, however it means that this 4hp engine now has "three-way-carriage". Therefore, in simple terms, this new Suzuki 4hp can be laid down on any one of the engine's three sides, without there being a risk of oil leaking out. This modification cured one of the very few "minor issues" that there was with the with the older Suzuki DF 4 model. The Suzuki DF4A was also restyled with a sleeker hood and handle, with better decals (logos). Therefore the new model Suzuki DF4 looks a lot more modern.
 
The Suzuki 4hp engine is steered and controlled by the tiller handle. The Suzuki DF4A  is a manual pull start engine, which is incredibly reliable and also easy to pull start. There a simple lever-operated system on the side of the engine for forward, neutral and reverse gears to control this Suzuki 4hp engine. Again this gear lever is large, easy to use and very positive when changing gear.
 
The built-in one litre fuel tank on this Suzuki DF4 A gives a sensible range for a small 4hp outboard engine. There is not however on the DF4 A a connector point to plug-in an auxilary fuel tank, as there is on its larger brother the DF6. With the litre fuel tank, the Suzuki DF4A and Suzuki's typical frugal fuel economy this gives these Suzuki 4hp engines a good range, without the need for a second fuel tank in the boat. The standard propeller is alloy. 
 
Ease of operation and handling ranked very highly in the design criteria for the Suzuki DF4A, DF5A and DF6A. Also these three small Suzuki outboard engines take full advantages of the advanced engine technology in all their features. Overall the DF4A has a eco-friendly, clean burning, fuel-saving modern 4-stroke engine, using the latest outboard technology. User friendly features of the Suzuki DF4AS include that the tiller handle is mounted on the steering bracket, thus allowing the operator to sit well forward. This improves weight distribution and balance in a small boat. The Suzuki DF4A has a 180 degree steering, providing good manoeuvrability even in shallow and restricted waters.
 
The Suzuki DF4 A has a large carrying handle. Coupled with their light weight, this makes the Suzuki DF4A a popular choice for the 4hp portable outboard engine market.

Suzuki 4hp Outboard - Pennine Marine Review
Info Block Description: 

This Suzuki DF4 A is a good, well-built and reliable outboard engine.
 
The DF4 A is a simple and straightforward four stroke outboard engine. In our opinion, it is neck and neck with the Yamaha F4 equivalent. There is very little to choose between these two engines in the 4hp catagory, both coming from these two leading manufacturers of outboard engine brands. This Suzuki 4hp outboard engine is well-built and reliable, with no known vices.
