Makita BHX2501 MM4 Hand Held Petrol Garden Leaf Blower

Petrol Engines

It is important to read all instructions regarding petrol products. 4 Stroke engines require oil and some machines are supplied dry (No oil to start with). Running a 4 stroke petrol machine without oil will result in the engine seizing and is not covered under warranty.

2 Stroke engines will need to have a mix of oil in the petrol this is normally 1 part oil to 50 parts petrol but not always, again please read the instructions supplied with your machine. Petrol engines do require more maintenance than electric engines but if reguarly maintained they will normally give many years of use.

There are three main types of leaf blowers – Petrol, corded electric and cordless electric. As a general rule, Petrol blowers offer the most power at the expense of being heavier and noisier and than their electric counterparts, and typically come at a higher price.

Electric blowers are much quieter and more suitable for residential areas, and are usually powered by either lithium ion battery packs, or mains electricity.

Corded variants are cheaper to manufacture as they don’t require batteries or chargers, though their obvious limitation is the length of cord they are attached to.

Cordless variants offer much more freedom, though the amount of time they can be used for is dependent on the charge in their batteries. Higher amp-hour (ah) batteries will offer the most runtime, while higher voltage machines will provide more power.

Leaf blowers can also be effective at clearing snow, dust and dirt; however please bear in mind they are not designed to shift piles of wet leaves and much better results can be obtained by waiting for these to dry out first.

Have moved to this 4 stroke petrol leaf blower from a battery operated one - battery life was too short and spare batteries are prohibitively expensive. Apart from being noisier than the battery version, I cannot praise this makita enough. Starts first time every time. Yes it is heavier but as a fit male I do not find this a problem (it helps to change hands from time to time).

Brilliantly efficient. Surprised there is no carrying strap as it can be a little heavy on the arms. Ihave made a strap which makes it more acceptable. Otherwise- perfect

I have lusted after this item for some time and, although i haven't yet tested it with a decent quantity of leaves, it has lived up to my expectations. No problem filling the oil, i went to halfords and got their garden machine 4 stroke oil which is 10w/40 sg rated which is higher spec than required, about 6 quid. This has a pull out spout which makes the job easy. Started first time with very little effort and similarly every time since. also noticeably less smelly and dirty exhaust, much, much better than my old 2 stroke. the only point i would mention is that when i turned it sideways the exhaust smoked and suspect this is not advisable. 2 strokes off course will even work up-side-down, so if this is your style of blowing perhaps the 4 stroke is not for you.
