Description

The 18V X2 LXT® Lithium-Ion (36V) Cordless Blower (XBU01PT) is powered by two 18V LXT® batteries, so users get 36V power and run time for gas-powered demands, without leaving the 18V LXT® platform. Model XBU01PT is a kit and includes two fast-charging 18V LXT 5.0Ah batteries and an 18V Dual Port Charger that will charge two batteries simultaneously for increased productivity and less downtime.
The XBU01PT has a variable 2-speed motor (0-10,000, 0-17,000 RPM) for optimum speed control and a maximum air velocity of 208 MPH with up to 30 minutes of continuous run time on a single charge. Added benefits include lower noise at only 60.6 dB(A) and zero emissions, making it ideal for applications in residential areas. The XBU01PT requires none of the maintenance associated with comparable gas-powered blowers: simply insert two charged 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion batteries and the tool is ready for work. (source: Makita)

Overview of the Makita XBU01PT

  • Power: The XBU01PT is a cordless blower made by Makita. It has a maximum air speed of 208 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 155 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Power delivery: Makita designed this battery-operated unit with total mobility in mind. The XBU01PT only needs to be plugged in when it is charging, so users can take it almost anywhere.
  • Battery: It has a 5 Ah 36 V Li-ion LXT® battery system (2 batteries included) that can work reliably for up to 28 minutes if completely charged. 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: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. Be aware that, at 8 lbs, the Makita XBU01PT is on the heavier side for cordless handheld blowers.
  • 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: As far as electric handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 60.6 dB.

The Makita XBU01PT's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Makita XBU01PT compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 208 MPH. This puts the XBU01PT ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in battery-operated handheld blowers – it's actually the blower expelling the fastest air!
  • As this unit is rated at 155 CFM (cubic feet per minute), it expells less air than most cordless handheld blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Poulan Pro PRB675i with 675 CFM).
  • Users can expect an autonomy of 28 minutes from its battery, which means the XBU01PT won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in (the one with the best autonomy being the EGO POWER+ LBX6000 with up to 96 minutes of runtime).

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Makita XBU01PT is on the average side of the price range.
