Easy to start, very quiet, stress free blower

published

I bought this on special from Sydney tools for $289 after returning the homelite blowervac. This unit starts with the first pull everytime. No hassles in mixing the fuel as this is a 4stroke motor. It is very well designed with ergonomic handle and its weight is distributed very well.
Blower is very powerful and the nozzle attachments fits tightly and does not fall off while blowing.

I definitely recommend this to anyone for the ease of operation and hassle free maintenance.
easy to start, fuel efecient, quiet, powerful
nothing so far..

Perfect Blower MAKITA BHX2500

Good

I would buy one again, quiet and seems reliable so far (10 hours on it.) Good value for money, mine has a minor oil leak but way better than the old two stroke.
Easy to start, seems reliable and works well.
Poor ergomics, you need to stoop down in order to make contact with ground when used as vac.

It's a great time saver.

I blow many gumleaves down a driveway, it cleans up quickly and is a huge time saver rather than sweeping.
It's fast work

Quiet, powerful, no mixing oil, no chance of seizing motor due to not using oil (which is what happened to my Sthill), $380 - almost $200 cheaper than Honda and that is without shopping around. So far very happy.

what model of stihl?

Excellent

lightweight, reliable,quiet, easy to start 4 stroke engine , no need to mix petrol with oil; you should use a good quality motor oil ( the sump is 0.8 litre only and change every 10 hours. Makita recommends SAE 10-30 W SF but I am using Mobil 1 0-40 W fully synthetic oil.
engine starts every time you pull out the cord. very quiet engine
not the best vacuum but more than the adequate blower

I bought this blower 4 months ago and still amzed by the ease of start, the cord is so light and the engine starts every time, much easier than the Honda mower, and mind you, the Honda is one of the best mower, engine wise. It is also light, well balanced and quiet, quieter than the Stilh. I would not hesitate to recommend this blower to home owners, even to pro gardeners.
Nicely made, looks smart, extremely easy to start and very well priced even Made in Japan.

Don't believe that it will cause damage and the blower will turn off and smoke I did it once and never again with line trimmer you can turn to it's side like honda stihl eco but not cheaper one the blower is not designed to tilt to it's side

Yea, I wouldn't as the Oil will run into the engine too quickly and hence cause the smoke.

has anyone used 15w-40 oil in the makita 4 stroke blower?

1 answer
Nick O
Nick O

Yes, I used this on my last service and it's running without any problems. Just as smooth as it is normally. The main thing to remember with oils is the temperature you're running the equipment in. Unless you're working in close to sub-zero temperatures there's not much to worry about with choosing a mix of oil to add to small engines. Especially with the variety of semi-synthetic oils such as 15w-40.
