Description

4 Stroke Petrol Leaf Blower


Makita BHX2501 petrol leaf blower has been manufactured to offer a low emission machine that is highly effective in clearing leaves and other garden debris.Being very much quieter than its 2-stroke counterpart, 4-stroke MM4

Featuring a 24.5cc 4 stroke OHV petrol engine, this extremely lightweight 4.4kg machine, delivers a massive sixty-five cubic meters of air every second with an airflow of 145mph. The unit comes supplied with a convenient tool kit, extension pipe and flat nozzle.

When the beauty of the summer garden disintegrates into a mass of leaves and twigs, this petrol blower is the ideal solution for gathering them together for disposal onto the composting heap. Designed to be powerful and efficient, the blower takes the back-ache out of raking and stooping. Comes with a 1 year professional guarantee against manufacturing defects for both domestic and commercial users.

With an Easy oil change system - Extended oil drain plug.

Choose the Optional Vacuum


There is an optional vacuum kit available for the BHX2501 petrol blower (MAK195283-6 see accessory tab above). This kit comes with all the tubes and a bag to convert the blower into a very efficient vacuum. Leaves and other debris are sucked up the tube packed into a high volume bag that hangs by a strap over your shoulder.

Does what is says on the tin
Only had the machine recently. Yes the blower does tend to stick to your leg if used in the right hand, but doesn't appear to be any major issue. Arrived well packed and started first time, every time. So far very pleased with quality for price. However this is my first venture into leaf blowers so review is limited by that.

Excellent product
I would like to start by saying this is an excellent product as are all of my Makita tools. The only downside is i do find it heavy to carry around for more than 10 minutes. I also think it could do with being slightly more powerful. If i was to purchase another one of these, I would probably buy the STHIL backpack with a larger engine.
Overall i can’t fault the kit itself its well made, quiet and works very well.

Brilliant bit of kit
Buy cheap and you buy twice!
Obviously a leaf blower is a seasonal piece of machinery. Leaving a battery powered blower dormant for long periods does the battery no good at all and a two stroke can be a pain in the rear end to get started. This was the obvious choice....a fairly inexpensive 4 stroke.
Very easy starting. Excellent power and not too loud. Also bought the vacuum attachment. To be honest, I wasn't expecting the vacuum attachment to be THAT good. It's great. No problem with wet leaves. Not too heavy however the only very minor criticism would be the lack shoulder strap for comfortable extended use.
Highly recommended.
This the 3rd item I have bought from World of Power....excellent speedy service.
Cannot be faulted all round.

Great machine.
Ordered this blower and it arrived as promised on the following day. The PDI had clearly been done well, there was even a little bit of petrol in, so it started second pull (which it has on every occasion since). Not too noisy (unlike 2 stroke ones) but with plenty of oomph.

Great price, beginning to think I should have got the vacuum kit aswell! My first order from from World of Power and am very impressed.

Good product at the right price
This is my first leaf blower and I am very impressed with it so far. The engine started from new second pull and it cleared all the leaves from my front and back garden. It's quite light so the wife can use it as well as me. It is nice and powerful and can shift wet leaves easily. I have a gravel driveway with a large beech tree alongside and this machine clears all the beech nuts and leaves easily from the top of the gravel. Very pleased so far with this Makita machine.

Great piece of Kit
This is a good bit of kit, starts really well quieter than 2 stroke, decent volume on tickover good on half throttle, been blowing leaves off we grass, works fine. would be perfect if it had a shoulder strap to take some of the weight, OK for 30mins but gets heavy after this. Good on fuel. Had a Stihl, but it was stolen so replaced it with a Titan from screwfix for £100, lasted less than one season tried to fix it but everything is cheap and horrible, so bought this for £80 more than the titan and wish I had bought it in the first place, definitely get what you pay for...

Another 4 Stroke Makita in my Collection
I have to say I love Makita's 4 stroke engines, already having a strimmer and hedge cutter.
This blower was simple to assemble, came with engine oil inside and started 1st pull.
What more can I say, another great tool

Better than Stihl
This is the second Makita blower I have owned. I have had my first one for 7 years of professional use some days being used continually for 2/3 hour sessions a couple of times a day for weeks during autumn. It's always started first time and with regular maintenance has never needed repairs. I bought this one purely because of the amazing price for a pice of excellent engineering.

very good machine
I used the Makita Leaf Blower for the first time the other day, assembled the machine & checked it over, it still had oil in from the PDI given by World of Power Technician. It started 2nd pull & ran smoothly, not too heavy but had to keep changing hands as it was in use for quite a while. It handle the removal of leaves very well @ little more than tick-over even though the leaves were not fully dry.
the only drawback I can mention is the machine is designed for R/H operation but because the blower fan is on the L/H side it tends to draw in any loose clothing which will restrict the operation of the blower, other than that no fault found.
I have not tried the vacuum side yet so no comment there.
Prior to my purchase I rang World of Power & found them very pleasant & helpful.
Because it is a 4-stroke machine it starts very easily so can fully recommend it, plus, as World of Power are very competitive on price & PDI their machines prior to dispatch they must be 1st choice to purchase from.

Pleased with purchase
I chose this leaf blower because, being 4-stroke it is much easier to fill and start. It's great for blowing leaves off the drive and patio, and off the lawn when it's dry, but struggles a little with wet leaves on grass. WOP was very a competitive price and delivery was fast. I hope it proves as reliable as my other Makita tools.

Really great bit of kit!
It's early days, but the more I use it, the more I realise what a great piece of kit it is.
I've started it maybe 40 times in the past 2 weeks and it has not failed to start first time, every time, with just a gentle pull. Being a 4 stroke it's quiet, uses less fuel, doesn't need any fuel mixing, and has a really nice throttle response that you only get with 4 stroke motors.
I thought initially it's full throttle blow wasn't as good as my old 2 stroke, but in retrospect that's a false impression. The quietness makes it seem like that at first, but in reality it's just as powerful on full throttle.
It's a while since I've been as impressed with a new tool as I have been with this. Value for money wise it kicks the competition into the weeds.
If it breaks or fails within a reasonable period I'll report back, but it seems really well built.
Criticisms..... Very few. Would prefer a actual handle for sideways 2-handed operation rather than the moulded part on the tank, and perhaps the balance is very slightly nose heavy for me..... But I'm splitting hairs really!
Great bit of kit...... considering a second one for vacuum operations in fact!

Excellent service and great value for top product.
I purchased this Makita leaf blower not only to clear leaves but primarily to clear the thousands of acorns falling into my garden. There were several reasons for choosing both the model and the supplier. The Makita is one of only a few 4 stroke machines, world of power were not only the cheapest supplier of this machine but had the best reviews. Delivery was speedy and the machine was up and running in no time. Wow! I am amazed at how easy it is to start and the power is more than enough to clear thousands of acorns .

I bought a Makita hedge trimmer from World of Power with the same engine as this leaf blower so I knew it was a great little engine. It's smooth responsive and reasonably quite.
Very easy to start, powerful and well balance. I had a cheaper leaf vac before but this is head and shoulders above that, quality build and excellent value for money.

Very pleased with this Makita blower. Lovely engine which is very easy to start, and reasonably quiet too. Economical on petrol and being four stroke needs no mixing with oil as with two strokes. Not too heavy either, and very efficient at clearing leaves etc. The whole machine seems very well thought out, with possibly the only weak point is the fuel pipe which could be vulnerable when priming the machine. I've used Stihl blowers for many years professionally, but after using this Makita I'm very impressed! World of Power delivered it quickly and at an excellent price. Great machine, great company to do business with. Recommended unreservedly!

Great Garden Vac
Read a lot of reviews before I bought the 4-stroke Makita BHX2501 from World of Power and so far I agree with the many positive comments on this machine. It starts well, runs well, is easy to fuel and is powerful as well as reasonably quiet and lightweight.

Unlike some reviewers, I didn't find it hard to assemble and so far no problems with vibration, or an uncomfortable trigger. My only complaint is a bit of back ache after about 45 minutes, but I guess this would apply to any hand-held petrol machine.

I also looked at the Stihl 2-stroke equivalent, which has a similar quoted noise output and wondered why so many reviewers say the Makita is quiet compared to 2-stroke machines. Well now I understand. At full throttle the Makita may be as noisy as a 2-stroke, but at idle and mid-revs it has a deeper, softer sound which is much less annoying than the rattle and high-pitched whine of a 2-stroke.

I bought the optional bag attachment for my Makita as I wanted it mainly for vacuuming up leaves etc and I've found it works well at low revs for many vacuuming applications, including lifting leaves off gravel. The throttle is easy to finesse, so you can give it a quick boost where you need a bit more suction, but use it quietly and economically for most of the job.

The purchase experience with WoP was as good as you would hope and so far I can't fault the Makita. Way more controllable and effective than my previous electric machine and gets the job done in half the time. Just hope this great performance is enduring!

I didn't bother with the bag because if the amount of crap I have to suck up. But for just controlling everything, getting it into a pile for the green bin, it's sooooo good! First review I have ever been bothered to write, because it was so worth it.

Delivery not as good as expected
The great advantage of the Makita leaf blower is that it is 4 stroke so no messing about with mixing. I suspect that vibration may be a problem if used for a longer period. Powerful enough to move most normal garden items wet or dry.
Clearly not supplied from stock so took a few days longer to get it to me than expected and was not advised of this. But good supplier, have used before and would recommend.
