Product Overview

With zero emissions and lower noise, the 18-Volt LXT Brushless Cordless Blower Kit (XBU03SM1) is a welcome solution for clean-up applications. Its powered by one 18-Volt LXT battery, the same battery that powers the full range of solutions in the expanding LXT system. This blower features a compact and ergonomic design, weighing in at only 6.5 lbs. and measuring 32-1/2 in. L. With no carbon brushes, the Makita BL Brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life and delivers speeds up to 116 MPH air velocity and a full 459 CFM. Makita's efficient BL 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. A cruise control lever provides management of power and run time. The XBU03SM1 features Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT). XPT 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.

This blower was easy to assemble. I had buy the accessories: shoulder strap, blower tube adapter pipe, blower tube extension, and flat nozzle from another vendor because Home Depot does not carry them. It also needs a larger capacity battery than what is supplied in the kit.

The over all is good. Only used it a few times seams to work well on a average size home the change is a long one would recommend to get a fast charger unless you only have this item. Battery life is about what you would expect for a cordless tool
