Description

The Makita Blower (model UB1103) is a go-to tool for fast clean upon the jobsite or in the workshop. The Blower is powered by a 6.8 AMP motor with a variable speed control dial and trigger with lock-on for added convenience. With a maximum air speed of 203 MPH and a maximum air volume of 145 CFM, you’ll get faster clean-ups. The blower can also be used as a vacuum; simply move the nozzle to the vacuum port and connect the dust bag. (source: Makita)

Overview of the Makita UB1103

  • Power: This electric leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 145 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 203 MPH.
  • Power delivery: As it is a corded model, the blower needs to be plugged in to a power source in order for the 6.8 Amp motor to operate. Note that the power cord might not be included with the blower. Should you wish to obtain one, use our gauge calculator.
  • Cord Lock Mechanism: It has a cord lock mechanism, so there’s far less risk of having the cord come unplugged when the unit is in operation.
  • Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. Among other electric handheld blowers, the Makita UB1103 can be considered light, weighing only 4.3 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the UB1103 features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Vacuum: For those who really want to make leaves disappear, the UB1103 has a handy 'blower vac' feature (the keyword here being 'vac', aka 'vacuum'). It allows the operator to collect light debris in a collection bag to be easily discarded after the job is finished.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 83 dB, the UB1103 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

The Makita UB1103's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Makita UB1103 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 203 MPH. This puts the UB1103 ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in electric handheld blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Craftsman CMEBL7000 with 260 MPH).
  • Its max air volume rating (145 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of electric handheld blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Worx Turbine WG521 with 800 CFM).

Price comparison
