With the efficient Makita BLT brushless motor, the blower delivers longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. Makita's efficient BLT Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per battery charge than similar non-brushless tools. Electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match the changing demands of the application for increased power and speed when needed. With no carbon brushes, the Makita BLT Brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life. When powered by two 18V 5.0Ah batteries, the efficient brushless motor delivers up to 28 minutes of run-time on dial setting #3 on a single charge.The XBU02Z features Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPTT). XPTT is a protective seal inside the tool, and is engineered for improved operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components. It's part of Makita's expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world's largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries.
Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer ControlsT. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.Makita-built motor produces a maximum air velocity of 120 MPH. 6-stage air velocity/volume selection dial with variable speed control trigger. Delivers up to 28 minutes of run time at 15,800 RPM using two 18V LXT® 5.0Ah batteries (batteries not included). Zero emissions and reduced maintenance; no need for gas or oil. Two 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion batteries deliver the power and run time for gas powered demands without leaving the 18V LXT® platform (batteries not included). Compact and ergonomic design at only 36-5/8 long.
Weighs only 9.0 lbs. With batteries (batteries not included) for reduced operator fatigue.
Features Extreme Protection Technology (XPTT) which is engineered to provide increased dust and water resistance in harsh job site conditions. Instant start-up; simply load two 18V LXT® batteries and the blower is ready to use. Battery charge indicators show charge level for each 18V LXT® battery.
