The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Blower (model DUB182Z, tool only) is a go-to clean-up tool and a favorite on job sites and in workshops. It seamlessly combines the convenience of cordless with the superior power-to-weight ratio of Makita’s 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion battery technology. The DUB182Z is the perfect addition to any kit, tool bag or work shop.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. 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 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® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
Makita-Built Motor Engineered for Versatile Power

The DUB182Z weighs just 3.9 lbs. (with battery, sold separately) with a more compact design at 20-3/4” long and an ergonomic shape that fits like a glove for reduced operator fatigue. The two-finger variable speed trigger switch is easy to handle, even with a gloved hand.
