Is there a specific "Break in" procedure for this?

Asked by: Mikey435
Yes, the user's manual wants you to change the oil after a small numbers of hours. But no initial restrictions on throttle setting or run time.

Makita 4-Stroke (MM4) 145 MPH 356 CFM 24.5cc Gas Handheld Leaf Blower is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 257.

I purchased this 4-stroke blower about 2 years ago; I take immaculate care of it and only use ethanol free fuel. Surprisingly, it started slinging oil out of the crankshaft seal and I took it to a repair shop to fix it. The technician said the parts alone to reseal it are about $100 and labor to fix it would not be worth fixing it, but to replace it. The shop contacted a warranty rep. for Makita and said these blowers have problems with oil leaks, but the serial number on mine was not covered for out of warranty repair. VERY, VERY Disappointed with this blower and Makita after paying so much for it. NEVER AGAIN. Don't buy Makita outdoor products, not worth it.

While I am very satisfied with this blower, it took a while to buy as the idiot in the Newnan Georgia store told me I could not order and pay with a Home Depot gift card. This leaf blower is very easy to start and it's nice not to have to use a premix of gas and oil. It's roughly the same weight as my old blower. The velocity of air seems to be about the same as the previous blower however, I'll know more this fall. My only complaint is the oil dip stick is somewhat difficult to read. Bottom line for me is, I would buy it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent leaf blower I had decided to change to a 4 stroke leaf blower after my 2 cycle Ryobi gave it up after 15 years of dependable service. Having used Makita tools both at work and at home, and finding them to be of high quality and reliability, I decided on the Makita 4 cycle leaf blower. It has proven to be very powerful, lightweight and easy to start. It runs very quietly and not having to mix gas and oil is great. If held in the right hand, it will suck your pants leg against the air intake at times, so get used to using it left handed. Checking the oil is a little tricky ( be sure to add oil to the unit as it is, of course, shipped unfilled) because of the bent, plastic dipstick, and the gas cap may need to be vented further as it will slow down if used at full speed for an extended time. Since I do not plan to use mine as a leaf vacuum, I drilled a 1/32 " hole through the center of the cap which solved the venting problem, with no spillage or odor.

If it wasn't defective I'd give it a 4 (very handy, but not powerful). Make sure you check for oil leaks before the 30 days is up or you'll have to deal with trying to get warrantee work done by Makita.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2016 model still going strong I have a model from early 2016 and it is still going strong. Sees about 5 hours of use a week and gets an oil change every month. I run Honda small motor oil and ethanol free gas through mine and it has started on the first or second pull every time, keep up the good work Makita!

THE PLASTIC BLOWER ATTACHMENT FALLS OFF ALL THE TIME AFTER 3 MINUTES IN USE EVEN THOUGH IT IS LOCKED IN PLACE. I BELIEVE THE VIBRATION CAUSES THIS. IN ADDITION THE STRENGTH IS AIR FLOW IS LESS THAN I EXPECTED.
