Makita and their outdoor lawn power tools, such as their cordless blower kits and string trimmers, have been steadily gaining more and more traction for obvious reasons. They make fantastic tools at affordable prices, so you can have a beautiful lawn on a budget.

Based on our observations, we have found that electric blowers tend to be the more popular pick for homeowners, as they tend to be quieter and more eco-friendly. And that is also the case for this brushless blower as well.

Although gas blowers are typically known to be more powerful than electric kinds, this is not the case when it comes to the Makita XBU02PT 36V, which gives a powerful performance to match that of the gas types. Also, with this, you do not need to worry about the dangers of exhaust gas inhalation nor to fuss around with oils to get your blower started.

Gas-type blowers are notoriously troublesome when it comes to starting the device. Not only do you have to mix a bunch of potentially toxic oils, but you also need to tiresomely pull on the cord for several minutes just to start up your blower. However, this XBU02PT blower eliminates all that struggle.Design of Makita Xbu02pt Blower

It has an easy one-press starting trigger and it needs no mixing of oils to fuel or refuel it. Also, charging the device hardly takes 45 minutes, after which you get a full 28 undisturbed minutes at medium speed.

Additionally, this has to be one of the easiest blowers to use when it comes to interface. Mostly everything is done by the easy-to-access control dials, which include the air speed settings and the power button. Further, it also has an indication bar to show you the battery percentage of the blower so you always know exactly how much battery is left.

The total weight of this blower with the batteries included comes out to 16.9 lbs and that speaks for itself. It is an absolute dream to work with, even for an elderly person who may get tired more easily.

Its lightweight construction coupled with its cordless design makes for limitless mobility and you need not worry about accidentally unplugging your blower while in use or tripping and dragging around big bulky wires. Our findings show that this is overall a decent and well-designed blower that is sure to be a great addition to your lawn care tools.


– How Has the Makita XBU02PT Evolved?

The Makita XBU02PT has evolved through its advanced built-in fan technology, the extreme protection technology, the upgrade to a brushless motor type, and the noise levels of the blower. Its design and construction have massively increased the convenience of users compared to similar models from other brands.Evolution of Makita Xbu02pt

Although Makita is not one of the oldest manufacturers around, they have got some notable blowers under their belt. These include the Makita XBU02PT, the Makita XBU02Z, the Makita XBU04Z, the Makita GBU01M1, and so on.

With all these models, it is clear that Makita puts in the work and resources to constantly adapt its products to the needs and wants of its customers. The same applies to the XBU02PT blower.

Let us compare the XBU02PT to another popular blower such as the Black & Decker BEBL750. Although both of them are somewhat evenly matched in terms of power, airspeed, and air volume, the XBU02PT offers a quieter performance. Where the XBU02PT has a noise level rating of 61 dB (A), the Black & Decker has a noise rating of 75 dB (A), which is over ten whole dB louder.

Another feature that is present in the XBU02PT Makita 36V blower kit but is absent in the BEBL750 is the built-in fan to circulate air and keep the machine from overheating, therefore promoting its longevity. Overall both are great and capable blowers and it all comes down to what you need it for.
