Overview of the Makita XBU01PT
- Power: The Makita XBU01PT is a cordless blower with a maximum air volume rating of 155 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 208 MPH.
- Power delivery: The blower is battery-operated, so the operator won’t need to worry about getting tripped up by pesky cords when they’re busy getting work done.
- Battery: Its 5 Ah 36 V Li-ion LXT® battery system (2 batteries included) enables the blower to run for up to 28 minutes without needing to a recharge. Makita’s LXT® battery technology provides a more efficient and convenient experience to leaf blower users. The cordless tools using LXT® batteries represent an unbeatable line-up of 18 V devices. Note that this is a 36 V blower. It therefore requires both of the 2 included 18 V LXT® batteries.
- Handling: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. However, for a cordless handheld blower, the Makita XBU01PT is heavier than most, weighing 8 lbs.
- Speed Settings: Thanks to its 2 speed settings, the Makita XBU01PT allows the user to adjust the air output to the task in hand.
- Noise: With a decibel rating of 60.6 dB, the XBU01PT is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.
