Description

Overview of the Makita XBU02PT

  • Power: The Makita XBU02PT is an electric leaf blower with a maximum air volume rating of 473 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 120 MPH.
  • Power delivery: The blower is cordless, 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 electric handheld blower, the Makita XBU02PT is heavier than most, weighing 9 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the XBU02PT offers variable speed settings.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 61 dB, the XBU02PT is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

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.

  • The air speed of the Makita XBU02PT maxes out at 120 MPH. While more than adequate for many jobs, its air speed is below average among other electric handheld leaf blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Worx WG518 with 250 MPH).
  • The XBU02PT is powerful, with an airflow rating of 473 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other electric handheld leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Toro PowerJet™ F700 51624 with 725 CFM).
  • 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 leaf blowers (the one with the best autonomy being the EGO POWER+ 580 CFM LB5804 with up to 180 minutes of runtime).
