Description

Landscapers and contractors are demanding more cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE that includes the 18V X2 LXT® Lithium-Ion (36V) Brushless Blower. With zero emissions and lower noise, the 18V X2 (36V) Cordless Blower is a welcome solution for clean-up applications. It’s powered by two 18V LXT® batteries for maximum power and run time, but without leaving the 18V battery platform. With the efficient Makita BL™ brushless motor, the blower delivers longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. (source: Makita)

Overview of the Makita XBU02PT

The Makita XBU02PT in use

The Makita XBU02PT

  • Power: The Makita XBU02PT can force 473 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 120 MPH.
  • Power delivery: This blower has a brushless, battery-operated motor. Thus, the user won’t have to worry about tripping over pesky cords when they’re busy working their lawn.
  • Battery: With its 5 Ah 36 V Li-ion LXT® battery system, the Makita XBU02PT has a standard, full-charge run time of up to 28 minutes. 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: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. Be aware that, at 9 lbs, the Makita XBU02PT is on the heavier side for cordless handheld blowers.
  • Speed Settings: To provide more control over their job to the user, the unit has a variable speed control setting. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Makita XBU02PT to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.
  • Noise: As far as electric handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 61 dB.

The Makita XBU02PT's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Makita XBU02PT compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Its max air speed of 120 MPH places it at the approximate midpoint in comparison to other battery-operated handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU01PT and its 208 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • The XBU02PT is average in terms of air volume. It's rated at 473 CFM, which is common for cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Ryobi RY404100, with 730 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 28 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the XBU02PT is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the EGO POWER+ LBX6000 which offers up to 96 minutes of runtime.

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Makita XBU02PT is on the expensive side of the price range.
