Customer Review: Works well for light duty clean up
For me it works well to clear up leaves around the pool. It is much smaller than the usual electric or gas power blower. The air flow is much more narrow but still powerful. It small and light enough that my six year old daughter can handle without difficulty. Added bonus, it works wonderfully in starting a charcoal fire. It take less than 1/4 time to do so.For major clean up I still prefer my old Homelite gas power blower.
Customer Review: Read first before giving it a bad review EDIOT!!!!
If you can read you would know this blower does not come with a battery. That's why Makita tools are so great. If you have other tools from Makita like their combo pack, you don't need other batteries. I already have 4 batteries, and I don't need more. I can save money because I don't need a case, or another battery to bring up the price on the blower. I also bought the Makita FlashlightMakita BML185N 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Flashlight, and I was able to save money because it came without a battery. Do you see now why it's nice to buy a tool without a battery. I've seen so many people give a bad review to a product, because they didn't understand or read the description. As for the blower it works great. It small, but surprisingly powerful. I use it to blow all the saw dust off of my tools. I was surprised to see that it's strong enough to blow leaves off the side walk too. The plus side too is that it's quite compared to the gas powered blowers you see people use on their lawns. If you have a small property I would recommend this over the gas power ones. Your neighbors will thank you for not waking them up when you use this.
