Summary: small, easy to use but for small area, good for blowing leaves from a deck or driveway, not powerfull for blowing a lot of leaves from grass. But I do like it. Did Makita produce these for small people?
Summary: Got it for my wife. Women will love this item. Easiest way to "sweep" garage, deck, sidewalks etc. Powerful enough without having to mess with gas. Quick and easy. Does what dept. store models cannot (due to their weak batteries).
Summary: We own a horse stable with a continual problem of cobwebs in the rafters and along the ceiling and the hay dust getting on everything. This lightweight blower is easy on the arms, quick and powerful enough to make my stable look spotless in fast time and with little effort. The battery life doesn't last very long but long enough for those quick jobs around the farm. I love the fact that it only weighs 4-5 pounds with the battery!
Summary: When I first received this blower and realized how compact it is, I was a little nervous that I had maybe made a bad call in ordering it. But, considering it's a Makita product and in my experience their products have always been top quality, I charged it up and gave it a try. Wow, was I wrong. This little thing really rocks!
Is not fit to use. Looks like a child's toy. Does not run. A complete rip off.

Summary: I bought this leaf blower for my son in law. Was I ever embarrassed Christmas day. It looked like a toy dor my eight year old grandson. And the thing does not even work. Then wheel he sends it back I am charged twenty dollars. I will never ddo business with this company. They said nothing about needing a charger. My grandson could hold it straight out and I just wonder if the thing would of blown any leaves.
Summary: This thing works pretty well but it's tiny with a very narrow airflow forcing you to bend over pretty far to do any serious cleanup. However, my six year old loves it. It's just the right size for him. And he likes that it's loud and makes a beeping noice when it starts.
Summary: Bought this as an addition to my other Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium Ion tools. Handy little blower. Works great for the quick sidewalk or driveway clean-up. Blows leaves out of flower beds. Well worth the price.
