Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bit of kit! Bought one of these a few years ago & have found it to be a fantastic addition to my garden equipment! Originally used with the vacuum attachments - worked very well - but more recently switched it over to blowing setup. Simple to start, once you get the knack; no oil/petrol mix required so easy to fuel; good, controllable power; can be a bit heavy after lengthy use so have to swap arms regularly. I'm left-handed so generally use that side, therefore the impeller is away from my body though when swapping sides, the suction can be enough that you can feel it tugging at your clothes although the impeller is well covered so shouldn't cause an issue. One major issue is that it takes about 20 minutes to change over to the vacuum system plus it can be rather fiddly. So I bought an electric blow/suck machine to do the vacuuming to have the best of both worlds without the hassle of changeover. Bit of a mistake as the electric machine is even heavier to haul about a large area. So...bit the bullet & bought a second Makita to use solely as the vacuum machine & so avoid having to waste time changing parts. Pricey decision but will pay off in the longrun as these are definitely built to last. Would not hesitate to recommend this machine - no regrets at all. 9 Nov 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by All 'hot' air?! Very pleased with this purchase, it being the first petrol blower I have bought. The 4-stroke engine was an attraction as it certainly gives ease of use and is fine on the dB level. I did have to fill the appliance with oil despite the info in some reviews. The engine starts easily after priming, the plastic tubes fit easily and operation is straight forward. I don't find the blower to be too heavy at all. Fuel consumption seems to be very good. The vacuum attachment seems very expensive so hasn't been bought. Much more effective (as a blower) and easier to use than an electric model I've had previously. I would certainly recommend this Makita. Well made, easy to use, good performance. 2 Nov 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good, a little bit heavy This blower performs well, has been reliable and easy to use in the short period I have had it. Plenty of power, the trigger sensitivity allows you to properly control the strength of gust! Sorted out the leaves on a large driveway and front garden in a couple of hours... if only it would also bag up the leaves for me and take them to the tip. The machine is well balanced but a little heavier than I would like. The ease of use makes up for this: - Starts first time from cold or warm. Good choke control. - Easy to set up from new, pretty much just add oil and petrol. - 4 stroke engine so no mixing petrol and oil. - Packs away easily when finished. - Decent user manual. Picked it up on the last day of Screwfix offering £50 off the usual catalogue price, so obviously very pleased about that! 2 Nov 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 1st ever petrol blower Needed a petrol blower and was swayed to buy Makita because of the offer price and all good reviews. I like the easy start 4 stroke engine, good powerful blower. I didn't buy the vacuum pack so cannot comment on that. The tubes/nozzle are very tight to assemble but probably need to be. Shame they only supply the one type of nozzle, not both types shown. Only gripe is that the air intake on the side of the body sucks up your clothing onto it so restricting the blow (for right handed people only). Cannot comment on reliability yet but hope it lives up to the Makita name. 18 Oct 2015

Answer: 
Disappointingly not.
I did call support regarding this but they had no idea so I went ahead and bought it then returned it after finding out it wasn't included.
Although the listing states the size of the collection bag, this is not included and at this price without it there are better deals out there.
