TWO NEW MAKITA 18V LXT CORDLESS BLOWERS DESIGNED FOR FAST CLEAN-UPS

The XBU05 reaches a maximum air velocity of 219 MPH.

October 20, 2020, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., the innovation leader in cordless power tool technology and cordless outdoor power equipment, is pleased to announce the new 18V LXT® Cordless Blower (XBU05) and Floor Blower (XBU06). These new battery-powered blowers provide instant start-ups for quick clean-up applications, with less weight for increased mobility.
 
The XBU05 packs power in a compact size. At about 4 lbs. and 20-3/8” long, the blower reaches a maximum air velocity of 219 MPH. A user controls the power and manages run time with the variable speed trigger. This blower is an ideal addition to any workspace and is available as a kit (XBU05ST1) or tool only (XBU05Z).
 
The XBU06 features an extended pipe to direct air closer to the ground. A compact design and rubberized soft grip handle offer increased user comfort. It has a Makita-built motor that delivers speeds up to 113 CFM and 152 MPH.
 
Makita® LXT Cordless Blowers eliminate the hassles of gas with lower noise, reduced maintenance and zero emissions. The blowers operate at a lower noise level, providing user comfort and preventing a disruption for neighbors or nearby businesses. With no need for gas or oil, the blowers require reduced maintenance and have zero emissions allowing indoor clean-ups.
 
18V LXT® System
Makita LXT Cordless System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, takes a user from power tools to outdoor power equipment to get the job done. Makita 18V LXT Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.  
 
Star Protection Computer Controls
Makita 18V LXT 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 Controls. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating.
