Description

Makita’s 24.5 CC Blower combines a cleaner-burning 4-stroke motor with the lowest weight in its class for more efficient performance. The BHX2500CA is EPA Phase II CARB III compliant and is a step up from older 2-stroke technology.

The low compression engine is engineered for easy starting, with an improved configuration for easier maintenance. The BHX2500CA is compact with the lowest weight (9.8 lbs.) in its class for easier control.

Overview of the Makita BHX2500CA

The Makita BHX2500CA in use

The Makita BHX2500CA

  • Power: The Makita BHX2500CA is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 356 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 145 MPH.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. All told, it weighs 9.8 lbs — the Makita BHX2500CA is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered handheld blower on the market.
  • Engine: Its MM4® engine boasts a displacement of 24.5 cc. As this is a 4-stroke engine, the blower does not require a mix of gas and oil in order to run. You can find more information about Makita's MM4® engine technology below.
  • Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the BHX2500CA offers variable speed settings.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 67 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 17.7 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity.

MM4® Engine Technology

illustration of Makita MM4 engine

The MM4® engine is a Makita's innovation aiming to provide 4-stroke engines that are lighter, have lower noise and vibration levels, are more user-friendly and do not require an oil/gas mixture.

Thanks to specially engineered components, the MM4® 4-cycle engine delivers high horsepower and torque (almost comparable to 2-stroke engines).

Moreover, it beats the power output of traditional 4-stroke engines by 20 to 30%, while having lower gas consumption. Leaf blowers fitted with the MM4® engine enjoy a faster and easier start, use and servicing.

In addition, the MM4®’s emissions are 90% lower compared to an equivalent 2-stroke engine, and thus comply with CARB Tier 3 and EPA Phase 2.
