Makita MM4® 4-Stroke Engine Power Equipment
Engine seizure due to improper fuel and oil mixing is one of the most common failures of 2-stroke engine power equipment. Makita has a better solution with MM4® 4-Stroke Engine power equipment including backpack and handheld blowers, a mist blower, string trimmers, brush trimmers, hedge trimmers, edgers, telescoping pole pruners and couple-shafted products. For hardscape applications, Makita created the world's first 4-stroke engine power cutter with the 14" EK7651H. These efficient 4-stroke engine solutions go beyond exceptional tool performance, as they require no fuel mixing so users require only one gas can for all of their power equipment. They're engineered to run quieter, idle smoother, have lower emissions, and give users quicker and easier starts.
