Pros and Cons

The Pros

As we mentioned above, this is a blower that has been designed especially to be much more environmentally friendly despite being having a gas powered engine. Thanks to its lower emissions, the Makita BHX2500CA is CARB compliant and therefore, suitable for use in the state of California. It is also light enough to use for prolonged periods of time without causing the user too much discomfort, and its fuel efficiency means less time spent refueling when tackling large areas.

The Cons

The only minor quibbles concern the fact that its 145 MPH blowing power may not be enough for some people, and the oil dipstick is flimsy and badly designed.


If you are in the market for a leaf blower this autumn then the Makita BHX2500CA is one that you should seriously consider taking a closer look at, as it is reasonably priced and is comfortable and easy enough to use.
