Product Description

The Makita BHX2501 4 Stroke Petrol Leaf Blower takes the hard work out of clearing leaves and garden debris. Its high air volume matched with a low weight makes this blower a perfect partner for all cleaning tasks around the garden. This compact and lightweight Makita petrol blower has a slim body and is very easy to carry with just one hand which makes it very well balanced and comfortable to use.

The BHX2501 meets or exceeds EPA Phase 2 and CARB 3 exhaust and evaporative emissions regulations and its powerful MM4 24.5cc 4 stroke engine requires no fuel mix, has lower emissions and has a diaphragm type carburettor.

This model is compatible with the 197235-3 Vacuum Attachment (See related products below) which quickly converts it from a blower to a vacuum with a large collection bag that collects the mulched debris for composting.

    Excellent piece of kit, wouldn’t expect anything else from Makita, I have been using their power tools for years.
    This blower is light, easy to start, and runs very quiet compared to 2 stroke models. Very powerful blower.

    Excellent and powerful blower. Comfortable to use as the blower power action helps to take a lot of the weight away from the machine. Easy to start and quiet in use. Highly recommended.

    Having recently purchased a Makita long reach hedgetrimmer with impressive performance, I decided to also purchase a Makita blower. The four stroke engine is a lot quieter, and operates at lower revs than the two stroke models I have used in the past, but with the same performance. Feed back from clients has been good, as in their words ‘We don’t miss the screech of the high revving two stroke and find the noise from the Makita less invasive’

    Excellent piece of kit. Don’t know how I would get falling leaves off a gravel drive without this. Best price also I could find and quick delivery.
    Bonus also it’s a local company, so very happy!

    This is rated well by lots of sites and I must agree, Starts first time, not to noisy, light to carry, and does a good job of clearing leaves from gravel drives. If you use it in your right hand make sure you keep your clothes away from the fan as loose clothing can block the intake. At time of purchase best price on the market with next day delivery.

    Delighted with this blower. It’s much better than the battery blower I’ve got. I expected it to be. Completely blasts leaves out from boarders and from under bushes and trees. It’s got a quality feel and not at all heavy to use. Easy to set up as well. My first purchase from Radmore Tucker, quick delivery, first class services.

    Excellent blower, so much better than the cheap corded rubbish I had to replace. Easy to assemble and start. Quite heavy for prolonged use compared to a 2 stroke but also much quieter. Radmore and Tucker were brilliant, shipping the item immediately. I could not fault them and would happily use again and recommend.

    Arrived today, topped up the included oil, fitted the three pipe sections and added petrol.
    Started very easily and is so much quieter than my 2 stroke blower. Very pleased so far.
    Took only one day from ordering to arrive. Radmore and Tucker are the cheapest seller I could find so well done to them and many thanks.

    Once again excellent customer service and rapid delivery at a great price. The Makita leaf blower is a super piece of engineering like all Makita products. Easy to start and work with and blows a storm.

    Really pleased with the quality of this leaf blower. Easy for me as a lady to use as it’s not too heavy but really does the job. Very quiet and blows away awkward horse chestnut shells that are too prickly to pick up by hand.

    Like other reviews, nothing but compliments. Both for delivery and actual machine. Very simple to put together and start. Oil sent with blower and started first time. Quieter than 2 stroke models and weight is about the same. Good performance with plenty of power. Very much an equal if not better than more expensive obvious makes. Will return to Radmore Tucker for other purchases. Excellent!

    Fast delivery from Radmore Tucker. The Matika leaf blower is a well built machine and more pleasant to use compared with 2 stroke, easy start and no smelly 2 stroke fumes. Comfortable to use with low vibration at handle.Would certainly recommend.

    First petrol leaf blower, and I have to say it’s light, powerful and so easy to start and use – not sure why I have not had one until now, previously had electric which was heavy, noisy, uncomfortable to use and had a cable!

    Third time i have used R&T with no Problems, Makita blower is very good quality and quiet, compared to two-stroke.
    Delivery perfect tracked all the way. Thank you R&T

    Excellent blower ,service and price. I ordered three machines from radmoretucker for the first time and all arrived the next day.
    The blower is powerful enough and starts each time with a single pull.
    Bit heavier than the standard two strokers but I circumnavigate that by using an old harness I have being a contractor who will use this kit all day long.

    Niel Retter (verified owner)

    I actually bought this as a gift so can’t comment on the machine but considering it’s a makita and other reviews im sure it will perfect, as for the service by Radmore and Tucker what can you say they delivered it personally as the owner lives close, filled up with petrol to check it’s working fine and to show the new owner, if you have never used R&T you should, top quality products, price and service what more could you ask for.

    What can I say after reading all the reviews on the product I purchased and what was said about the company I am more then pleased.Fantastic service and a great bit of kit.
    Will without doubt be using Radmore and Tucker again.

    This is my second 4 stroke Makita purchase (have a brush cutter as well which is great). The 4 stroke is not as powerful as a 2 stroke, but it starts easily, the carb won’t clog up, and is much quieter.

    I have bought separately the vacuum attachment – this is a bit of a faff to swap so you would want to do all your blowing then all your vacuuming. I haven’t tried this yet.

    There is a button to allow the blower to stay on hands free which is a little fiddly.

    These small niggles, plus the cost, make this a 4 star for me but I’d still recommend it.

    Excellent piece of kit. Light, quiet and powerful. My only slight grumble is: it would be nice if it was supplied with a small bottle of oil to get you started. Built it, filled up with petrol – couldn’t use it until I’d made a special trip out to get some oil.

    Lee scafe (verified owner)

    Very good quality blower , powerful and well made ideal for larger gardens or maybe even professionals . I found it easy to assemble and comfortable to use , please remember to purchase engine oil when you buy and add before using.I would also recommend the vacuum add on kit, makes the blower the all round tool for the job
