Leaf Blowers Direct Recommended

If you were looking to get away from mixing gas and oil, meet the Makita BHX2500CA handheld 4-cycle leaf blower. The BHX2500CA is a great option for anyone looking to cut down on the noise the 2-cycle models put out as well as provide the same kinds of performance people are looking for out of a leaf blowers.

The BHX2500CA is powered by a 24.5cc 4-cycle engine. This engine puts out professional type performance, but without the professional price tag and is durable enough to be run... more

Had a husqvarna 150bt before this. Don't miss it when compared to this blower. Cranks on first pull every time right out the box. Powerful, lightweight, quieter.

Easy Starting Nice Machine
So far this is a great machine that starts easy cold as well as hot.
Power is very good not quite equal to my Echo PB 251 but certainly enough to get the job done. The only draw back is that if you tip it sideways it pulls oil into the combustion chamber and burns it. Worth the money.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Reliable, Easy starting
Cons: Can't be run on its side or oil is burned

Bye Bye 2 Cycle
I bought this last year and and I'm glad I did. So far so good through two leaf drop seasons. No more mixing or difficult starting. Plenty of power on wet or dry debris. Much quieter than y old 2 cycle. No real set up was needed when it was received, just gas and go. I'd recommend to anyone that doesn't want to deal with 2 cycle anymore.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Reliable, Easy To Store
Cons: Non So Far

Awesome Leaf Blower
The 4 cycle engine is superb. No more mixing oil & gas. It starts with one pull (assuming you remember to turn the on/off switch to on). I'm still wrestling with that.

The blower cut my gutter cleaning job down from a dangerous 1.5 hours (sitting on the edge of the roof and pulling the stuff out by hand) down to 20 minutes. That includes 5 minutes for a beer break.

I have a 1/2 acre yard (front + back). My back yard has 1 black maple tree plus 2 oak trees...tons of leaves. The... more

Oldskool's Stamp Of A Champ
After endless, and I mean endless 2 stroke blowers and the $$ wasted as average life was 1 year of moderate use at my home....I had enough and bought a 4 stroke blower!! I did my homework and chose the Mikita 4 stroke.

Fast shipping and read the instructions and it fired up on just a quarter pull... Impressive, quality and value for the money. Recommended......Oldskool!!
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Price

Very Pleased!!
Oiled and fueled up and it started like a champ. What I was hoping for in a 4-stroke. Plenty of power and variable speed throttle is very reponsive. There's not a lot to rave about...it's a very high quality, easy to use leaf blower...it does the job very well! You get what you pay for so spend the extra bucks for a matita and it should last a long time.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, High Quality
Cons: None

The Makita Bhx2500cahas A Very Low Operating Noise, And The Vari
This is a very good machine and does an outstanding job moving leaves because of it's variable operating speed . It cold starts with ease. and run with very low noise.

Recommendation: Print the owners manual with larger type and on 8x10 page size
layout. It is vary hard to read in it's present size & form. Directions for operation are
much to wordy and complicated.

The oil measuring dip stick is hard to insert and difficult to read. Engineering needs to
rework this feature.

Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Features, Quiet

Good Leaf Blower
Haven't used it too much, but when I used it this blower really does the job. Didn't even use full throttle and it blew all the heavy wet leaves. The best part is there is no more mixing of gas and oil and it started on two pulls.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Features
