Another quality piece of kit from Makita.
I have owned this for about a year now.
I used it for blowing the leaves into a massive pile in the half acre garden last Autumn.
I also use it to blow all the grass off of my ride on Lawn Mower after I have cut the grass, and around the paths as I am too lazy to use a brush!
The blower starts first time, even with my Jack Russell trying to attack it as soon as I start pulling on the pull cord.
Being a 4 stroke it is quieter, with no mixing procedures. Although it probably makes it a bit heavier than a 2-stroke counterpart, it really is quite a light and well designed machine.
I find I have to make sure I button up my gardening jacket when I'm using it, as it tends to get sucked against the air input.
It can be used in either hand easily.
I did have a problem with it for a bit when it was quite new, where it kept cutting out. I eventually tracked it down to the fuel filling cap had a bit of muck in the breather, so as the fuel was being used it would create a vacuum in the petrol tank. I cleaned out the piece of muck, and I haven't had a problem since. Starts first time every time, and blows really well. I'm gonna marry it!

Had this blower for over a year now, starts every time much better than a 2 stroke machine, had a Robyi machine for 9 months and threw it in the bin would never restart when warm.
Great blowing power and quiet first class machine.

I'd been thinking of getting a petrol blower for a while and having read the reviews decided to go for this one. No regrets. Effective and quiet, though I don't think I could spend long periods with it because of weight. Not a problem in my case. Recommended.

Professional blower makes light work of leaves and medium size twigs and light stone and dust.
It's four stroke so is a lot quieter than two stroke counterparts with a nice easy start up .
Have used this for over 4 months in winter,. It starts first time every time.
long nose (shoot)
petrol tank hard to see level due to none mixed fuel !
and hoping will last longer being 4 stroke than 2.
i would buy again.
