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

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

Machine Overheats After Only 20 Minutes
The machine runs fine, but after only 20 minutes, the machine starts sputtering and dies. Starts after it cools down, but I lose so much time.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Unreliable, Durability

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

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.

Easy Starter
I'm now 3 weeks into owning this Makita BHX2500CA blower. I use it nearly every day to maintain my 1.5 acres of property. Every time I start it I thank myself for purchasing it. It starts first time, every time, and does so with only a light pull of the starter rope. A couple of other reviewers spoke to it starting on the first pull right out of the box, after initial setup of course. Hard to believe but that is exactly what I experienced and it continues to start on the first pull each time I... more

Power Seems To Have Dropped Off After Only A Few Uses
I like the power of the blower "out of the box" however it seems to have become sluggish after only a few uses. I have not yet called Makita to see if i need to try and adjust carb... I definitely do like how it starts every time with only a few pools as compared to a 2 cycle blower which are often difficult to start.
