The 18-Volt X2 LXT Lithium-Ion (36-Volt) Cordless Blower (XBU01Z, tool only) is powered by two 18-Volt LXT batteries, so users get 36-Volt power and run time for corded and gas-powered demands, without leaving the 18-Volt LXT platform (batteries and charger are sold separately). It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt LXT series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion battery. The Makita 18-Volt LXT battery has the fastest charge time in its category, so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger. The XBU01Z has a variable 2-speed motor (0-10,000, 0-17,000 RPM) for optimum speed control and a maximum air velocity of 208 MPH with up to 30 min of continuous run time on a single charge. Added benefits include lower noise at only 86 dB (A) and zero emissions, making it ideal for applications in residential areas. The XBU01Z requires none of the maintenance associated with comparable gas-powered blowers: simply insert 2 charged 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion batteries and the tool is ready for work.

Asked by Rottpack June 6, 2020

If you're standing on the roof and pointing directly into the gutter, I would presume it would work well. It didn't work well for us as we use to blow off our patio and sidewalk. Keep in mind, it take two batteries for its full force.

Does this blower have lock on switch, or do you need to hold the trigger down to keep it running?

We have several different Makita tools that we interchange the batteries with. We recommend using the 5.0Ah batteries as they give you the most power for the longest time. You can use the 3.0Ah but it just won't last as long.

how long will the battery last in Minus *15 degrees weather?

Only 4 stars because it isn't quite as powerful as my previous gas-powered blower, but this one is certainly better for the environment-both for noise and pollution. Battery life is good. I can do a 400 foot driveway plus around the house on one (2 battery) charge.

No power
I believed that the blower would be powerful but that was not the case. If you are simply blowing the leaves off of your porch or walkway this might be for you. Do you really need a $300 dollar blower for that? One of the main purposes of a cordless blower is so that you can move from your immediate house area and blow leaves in the drive or yard. This is not for anyone that has serious yardwork to complete. Tried it for a few minutes and they just boxed it back up to return.

This tool does exactly what I expected it to. It has plenty of power for yard work, and as some posters have already mentioned the batteries don’t last much more than 30 minutes. But it’s light and has enough power for what it is. I’m happy with it.
