Best In Class?
Rented this model first, and learned the difference between 2 cycle and 4 cycle. Lighter weight, quieter, easier to start, and most important can do the job in half the time. Extremely happy with this product. Always nice to find a better product than what I thought was available.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, Fast

Fantistic Blower!
For years I've been using 2 cycle blowers, I even had a 2 cycle snow thrower. With this machine being a 4 cycle unit, it's so much easier to work with no gas and oil to mix, and one of the best things is I don't smell that funky exhaust fume coming out of the unit. I liked the 4 cycle idea so much, that I bought a Honda 4 cycle string trimmer. Both of these machines are _the best!
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight, Durable, Features

Awesome 4-cycle Blower
The Dolmar has been a good buy in all aspects but one. It offers the well-known advantages of a 4-cyc machine....no oil-gas mix required, quiet running and starts easily. I would buy another one again.

Caveat....be sure to check on amaz*n.com for a better price. For example, the Makita BHX2500CA is listed at $185.49 + free shipping (May 2015). This machine and the Dolmar PB251.4 are twins with the same specs.

First 4-cycle Blower
I bought this unit to replace an aging 2-cycle blower that I had for years. This unit works well and starts easily. It's nice not having to worry about mixing fuel. I hope that this will be the last blower that I'll have to buy.

So Far It Is Working Well
I purchased this item after purchasing a rechargeable leaf blower I was not happy with and should of returned for the price I paid for it. It was my fault not realizing I could of returned it within 30 day's. I am happy with my new purchase.
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight, Reliable, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive

Great Blower
Bought this unit to help with sawdust cleanup at our woodworking factory- works awesome. Very happy with the product- have yet to actually try it out on leaves!

We opted for the 4 stroke so we didn't have to mix oil, or carry a separate SDS sheet for oil. The Dolmar works great- curious to see how it works clearing snow off of sidewalks this winter.

Great Leaf Blower
I purchased this blower because I am done wasting my money on two-stroke models. They never last very long and in the spring they are a bear to start. Had this model for a few months now. It starts on the first pull every time and is powerful and quiet. At this point it is a great blower. Hopefully it will be durable.
Pros: Quiet, Reliable, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
Cons: None

The blower was the first Dolmar product I have ever owned. After a very simple assembly, which amounted to putting the blower tuber together, and adding fuel and oil, it only took a couple of cranks to start. It cranks easy and runs quietly (for a gas engine) being a 4-cycle, as I expected.

It blows harder at idle than my two battery powered blowers. I was a little anxious that this unit was priced lower than comparable brands and models, but it turns out this is an awesome blower. It's... more

Love It!
This is my first leaf blower and I'm so glad I read reviews ahead of time and went with a 4 cycle machine. It's so much quieter than the noisy 2 cycle blowers and although it's a bit heavier than I might like, it's not objectionable as it's under 10 lbs.

Has a lot of power and can really move a lot of leaves at once, very important once the pile starts to get deep. It starts on the 1st pull every time and does a huge area on one tank of gas, plus you don't need to be mixing oil and fuel... more

Got To Love It.
This little jewel starts immediately and runs great. It has a quiet, low idle and plenty of power. It does run a little less speed or rpm than it's 2 cycle cousins but there does not seem to be any lack of wind that comes out of it. I like the 4 cycle better because there seems to be less vibration and you don't the get the gyroscopic reaction bringing it up to full bore as you do in the 2 cycle.

That is important when using it one handed on a roof whereas the gyro torque can also be... more

Good Leaf Blower
I have used the leaf blower four times since the leaves have started to come down. It has worked very well for me. It has started on the first pull each time.

The 4-cycle engine eliminates mixing gas and oil. Also, not having to drag an extension cord around obstacles in my yard, like I did with my electric blower, is really nice. I am happy so far and hope the Dolmar will last several years.
