Makita 4-Stroke Lawn and Leaf Blower

I am a gear-head and I typically keep my little two-stroke engine-powered lawn equipment running for 5-10 years. It is not uncommon for me to adjust needle-valves, clean carburetors, or replace broken fuel lines. It seems like years that I have been wanting to try a portable lawn tool with a four-stroke engine. So when my big box hardware store 8-year-old, $89 Homelite ‘yard broom’ two-stroke leaf blower’s fuel line broke off in the gas tank, I gave myself permission to find and buy a ‘quality’ replacement. I feel I can justify spending more on a quality product since I keep these things for so long and I more than save the money over paying a lawn service.

My Makita Leaf Blower arrived quickly using Amazon’s Prime Service. Even though the machine is new, and built in 2007, it started right up on the third pull. After that, it quickly starts on the first or second pull. There is no hesitation once it starts and from there on it just purrs like a big cat. Don’t be fooled by the 145 MPH air speed from this tool. I thought it was going to be underpowered. But most leaf blowing tasks can be done at idle or 1/4 throttle. I think this is because when you carry the tool around, the nozzle is always close to the ground. Only when encountering wet leaves I had to use more power from the rather quiet engine. Oil (10W-30) is not included. Being a 4 cycle engine, no oil and gas mixing is required. The manual is poorly translated from Japanese, but adequate. At 10 pounds (wet) and with a sore elbow, I had no trouble doing my yard and blowing leaves from inside the garage. You can even blow away pesky cobwebs off windows and dry your car.
I’ve used it now for a few weeks and have been very satisfied with it

I own and operate a landscaping and lawn care business and have been looking for a 4-stroke hand held blower to replace a 2-stroke one that has always been problematic. I am always looking for ways to be more environmentally responsible and this is clearly a cleaner option. I’ve used it now for a few weeks and have been very satisfied with it. The following is a comparison with 2-stroke blowers I’ve used in the past:
Good blower will recommend

First off when you put this together put oil in it that stuff in there when you first get it is just oil residue from the factory testing. Honestly im not sure if they put oil in to test then drain it but there is no oil just a residue. I read some reviews about people not knowing how much oil to put in because the dip stick is pretty strange. The manual which may be updated now says fill oil to the shelf. That means once you see a bit of oil in that hole and it doesn’t flow down any longer you are golden. (I layed mine on its side im not sure why some reviews say not to but if its not on its side its easy to over fill.) That’s how much you need. Don’t fill the whole neck up to the top. I took it out side and it started in 1 pull, great in my book. I cleaned up the backyard a bit before work. I blew little rocks and random stuff around and so far it runs great I will be using it this weekend and then draining the gas and putting it away for the fall. This is really quite compared to a 2 stroke anything. Will update if I get a mechanical failure in the first fall season but as of now it feels pretty solid. The handle has nice rubber wrapped around it, you can’t really tell in the picture but it feels nice. Not sure how well it will hold up but I like it.
Works well and reliable

Appears to be a good buy. I picked this up last spring. I use it not only at home, but as a painter I use it on exterior paints and I also clean gutters during the season. I found it has the power to blow the debris out of the gutters and other surfaces even wet, but to an extent, It is not going to move huge piles of leaves, but it will do most of what the homeowner needs done. I prime the unit with 7 pushes of the prime bulb, full choke, one pull and it starts 9 outta 10. The only drawback to this unit is that the air intake is on the left of the unit, so if you are right handed (as most people are) you can block the intake when you rest it next to your thigh. Other than that it is the only negative. I waited one year before reviewing this product so as to give an accurate review on how this unit performs. Perform the oil checks and run the unit dry before storing and this unit should give years of reliable service… At least that’s the plan…Update 11-15-13 Unit was assembled in the USA..unit still works fine.
Money well spent $$

Absolutely the best blower I have used for general household yard care. Had a Sears Craftsman 2 cycle model for 20 years. Was a pain to start when cold. Was tired of the oil mixing and separate fuel container, not to mention smelling of burnt fuel for a quick job. This Makita is excellent, has more power than you expect. Starts easy (prime bulb 4-5 times, lift red choke up, pull once or twice, push choke down, off you go), is quieter than 2 cycle units. You can start this unit holding it in your hands. Some units have to held on ground to get a good pull. I am very particular about tools. I want the best product for the best price. You can buy others, but if you want ease,quality and feel good about making the right decision…..you will not regret this purchase. Thank goodness somebody made a good product without having to mix oil. Just remember to care for the unit, keep the oil reservoir filled and keep your oil clean. The unit does not take much oil, so it should be a snap to change each season. The dip stick is kind of funky…..but not a big deal.
First use A+

It’s light, powerful and there’s no cord. I was trying to avoid gas powered home lawn machinery until I bought the house next to me and started taking care of an elderly neighbors yard. Since I have an outdoor shed now and don’t mind storing gas in it I decided to purchase a gas powered leaf blower.
