Makita® ConnectX™ is a run-time and power solution for use with ConnectX products, as well as XGT and LXT tools and equipment when used with an adaptor. ConnectX accelerates the transition to battery power with a Backpack Power Supply (PDC1200A01), which packs a high-capacity 1,200Wh battery for all-day work and performance without the hassles of gas or cords. ConnectX is the ultimate in versatility, offering easy compatibility with the premium line of ConnectX equipment including commercial-grade lawn mowers and trimmers, as well as 40V max XGT and 36V (18V X2) LXT products when used with an adaptor. ConnectX is commercial output on demand.
When the job takes your Makita tool into harsh conditions, Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) provides added protection. XPT™ is a series of integrated seals engineered to channel away dust and water for increased durability. Wherever the job takes you, Makita tools equipped with XPT™ are engineered for increased durability and longer tool life.
Landscapers are demanding more cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding collection of blowers, including the 40V Brushless Blower (CBU01Z). With zero emissions, lower noise and considerably less maintenance than gas-powered blowers, this blower is a welcome solution for landscapers.
The CBU01Z utilizes an external battery connection, moving batteries from the unit to a battery backpack (sold separately). A cable connects the unit to the battery backpack. This shift in battery weight from the trimmer to the backpack provides improved balance and longer run time. It can be paired with the ConnectX™, LXT®, LXT® X2 and XGT® Portable Backpack Power Supply (PDC01, sold separately), to gain extended run times.
The efficient Makita-built brushless motor delivers up to 80% more blowing force than a gas blower (Makita model BHX2500CA). Turbo boost mode delivers 622 CFM for heavy debris and a cruise control lever with variable speed trigger adjusts between 0-530 CFM for power and run time management. A speed lock also provides convenient, continuous operation.
The nozzle features a downward end point to reduce arm fatigue and provide powerful air flow. It telescopes to 3 stages. The in-line fan design provides better tool balance and improved ergonomics.
The Blower features IPX4 weather-resistant construction and exclusive 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.
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. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita® 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
