I have had a 4 stroke Makita bhx2500 for the last 11 years. The thing has been great. I replaced the
spark plug one or two times, the air filter once and changed the oil 2x year.
Really tempted to buy another Makita but I kind of want to go with a battery LB.
Local I have Husky, Toro, Ego.

HUSQVARNA 320iB $230​

Toro 105 mph 550 CFM 60 volt Battery $170​

EGO Power+ LB5302 110 mph 530 CFM 56 volt Battery $180​

This one has been fine and the batteries are more individually than this common package deal. Just squeeze the trigger no buttons. Tube comes off easy for cramped spaces. Makita has a number of choices, there is a higher velocity lower flow that I think about getting.

I recently bought the Makita battery powered blower posted above. I am glad I did as my wife can use it and does all the time. With my gas blowers I would have to start it for her which meant she never touched it. That said if you have a lot of blowing to do, say 20-30 minutes worth at a time, the buy a gas powered version.
