Have owned it for nearly 3 years, I work it pretty hard once a month plus easily / moderate several times a year.
Reasonably quiet and plenty of blow. Starts easily, idles well and accelerates as required.
Reasonably light and able to shorten the blower tube which make it easy to clean out gutters ( motor and 12 inches of blower pipe) and other tight spots.
Only problem I've had was the kill switch failed so i could not start it - I rebuilt the kill switch and ok. Kill switch is flimsy and the contact terminals separated and the plastic switch would not slide far enough to disengage the engine stop position. My blower was made in Japan. Recommend it.
Reliable, reasonably priced and works well
Kill switch flimsy and failed
I am laid up at the moment and my wife handles it easily. She uses it daily and has no trouble starting and using it. Quiet enough to not trouble the neighbours. Fuel usage seems to be efficient. Good unit we would recommend it to anyone. Price was reasonable in comparison to others.
Easy to start and light enough to be very managable.
Non so far
Brilliant little machine
Have owned for not a very long time, but all the use i have gotten out of it has been very impressive. Cheap, quiet and good quality (Japanese makita not Chinese) it is also very light and fuel efficient for doing bigger tasks. I have no complaints and certainly does not lack power, Perfect blower for anyone - and that's coming from a Stihl man
Quiet, lightweight, inexpensive, Japanese not Chinese, economical, user friendly
