In a word, it's a beast.
Have had an electric and a petrol powered blower before but they have not been as strong as this blower.
Overall the Makita Blower has a quality feel and materials used appear to be of a robust nature. It has heaps of blowing power (on its maximum setting you have to fight against the backwards push) but at the same time, it is not overly noisy. However, you really only need a lesser power setting for most blowing jobs and this will also increase your battery life. To this end, there is a power dial going from 1 (lowest) to 6 (highest).

Questions & Answers
Does the battery for this suit other Makita cordless tools? Where Makita uses two 18v batteries for some tools (I think) would this battery also suit these tools?
Yes!!! All makita batteries suit all makita tools .. For eg, I have 4 batteries, 2 big ones and 2 small ones. I use it for Makita radio, the makita blower, vacuum cleaner and also cordless drills, angle grinders etc... hope that helps.
Yes. There are a few Makita tools that only take some types of 18V Makita battery, but generally batteries are interchangeable.
Yes it does.
That’s one of the benifits of sticking with the same brand. I purchased the 5.0amp Lithium-ion. They are expensive but they will last you a near lifetime. Worth the investment.
