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

  • Power: The XBU02PT is a cordless blower made by Makita. It has a maximum air speed of 120 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 473 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Power delivery: Makita designed this battery-operated unit with total mobility in mind. The XBU02PT only needs to be plugged in when it is charging, so users can take it almost anywhere.
  • 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: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. However, for a cordless 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: Its noise rating of 61 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric handheld blowers.

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.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 120 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for battery-operated handheld blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Makita XBU01PT with 208 MPH).
  • Regarding its air volume, the Makita XBU02PT boasts an impressive airflow that can reach 473 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute). This places it amongst the most powerful of cordless handheld leaf 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 XBU02PT 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+ 580 CFM LB5804 with up to 180 minutes of runtime).

Price comparison

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

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
