does it use oil

Asked by Ron December 3, 2019

Answers

A small amount of oil is changed annually on mine. Mine doesn't "burn oil" if that's what you are asking. Change it annually and you are good to go.

bogs down or stops after I run it a while. Anyone experience this? Maybe time for a tune up.

Asked by bvail June 9, 2019

Answers

Yes, it's happened to me many times. Don't turn down the choke as advised once you have it running and it helps, but it is an issue that started happening to me very soon after I bought it.

How does this perform in cold weather?

Asked by Steve November 9, 2018

Answers

Works great in winter. Let it warm at idle a minute or so before revving.

Can synthetic oil be used?

Asked by Jack September 13, 2018
5
Answers

I wouldn't see why not. as long as it's rated the same as the makita oil that came with it when new. personally when it's time to change the oil in this blower that's what I'm going to use.

What type engine oil does this take?

Asked by Robert September 9, 2018

SAE 10W-30 oil of API Classification, Premium 4-Cycle Engine Oil

This problem is in sync with the blower being dropped; low oil in crankcase.

Great 4-Stroke Leaf Blower!! Definitely a solid 5 star product! I bought this blower to use around the house and I knew that this Makita blower was not going to disappoint. I own several Makita tools and the 4-stroke engine was the big advantage for me (no mixing oil and gas). I just wish there were some additional accessories included for the price. Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase and the Makita blower is another great investment to the collection. Definitely a recommended product! I hope to use this product for many years.

4 stroke! Nice! I really like the way this blower sounds. It reminds me of a Honda Elite scooter I had when I was growing up. It has a nice low rumble to it. But besides the way it sounds, it runs great. Nice and powerful. I have a backpack blower for big jobs, but wanted something smaller and lighter than I can fire right up for quick blowing around the yard. It is very light, and starts on the first pull. Very happy with it.

It is very good blower. very powerful , easy to start and easy to a simple. I had two choice between the Echo and Makita but then I decide to buy the Makita because it is 4-stroke engine and easy to start.

Very good 4cycle blower. does a very good job. the blower fires up in the first two to three pulls. would recommend this for regular leaf blowing and yard clearing jobs. The air stream is powerful enough for 99% of the jobs that I have.
