This blower is an excellent addition to Makita's LXT lineup of tools. Like all of the LXT tools, the blower is quite powerful, very rugged, lightweight and well thought out. Its small size and very light weight make it all the more useful and portable. It performs the shop duties of an air blow gun without the need of a compressor and hoses. The variable speed function is invaluable from heavy volume in cleaning out the buildup of dust and chips in tablesaws and planers, to the light "dusting off" needed on shelving and drawers (without blowing away the contents). It is equally as impressive on a job site as in the shop. The ability to clean off all the dust on your clothing from working around heavy sawdust, drywall dust etc. - this alone makes the blower a must have.

It would be hard to justify the purchase of this if it were to be the only LXT tool one were buying, given the fact that a charger and battery together will run $100+. But for someone with other LXT tools, already having a charger and batteries, this is definitely a worthwhile investment. The nozzle of the blower (the long black tube) is made of heavy rubber and detaches with a simple twist. This flexible nozzle can readily be flexed (bent) to point the blower into hard to reach areas. The simple "twist to remove" breaks the blower down to ultimate portability. It would almost fit in a toolbox! LXT batteries give it plenty of power and runtime; much more than one would anticipate from a battery powered device.

As far as the vacuum functionality, the nozzle is simply removed from the blower port and twisted onto the air intake port. Then a collection bag (not supplied with blower) is attached to the output to collect the vacuumed debris.

We still use the Makita LXT Blower on a (almost) daily basis. My wife loves to use it to blow off the steps in our garage. It is the useful rechargeable tool we have ever purchased.


I was somewhat skeptical when I ordered the Makita LXT Blower. I was worried that my 1.5aH battery would not fit or even if it did it wouldn't power the blower. I was also worried that even at full power that something this small wouldn't be up to the job - mainly blowing out my garage and cleaning the grass of my sidewalk.

The Answers -

- While the 1.5aH battery is not optimal (although I do have two from my Makita LCT300W 18-Volt Compact Lithium-Ion Cordless 3-Piece Combo Kit set), but it does work well enough. The main issue is that the battery life is about 3-5 minutes on the blower's highest setting. However, 4 minutes will blow a lot of grass off of your sidewalks).

- Plenty of power - IF you are blowing on smooth surfaces. If you are planning to use this to blow your leaves into a giant pile you will be disappointed.

- Ultra light - less than 5lbs

- Pull-the-trigger easy - this is what really attracted me to the Makita LXT Blower since about 75% of my clean-up jobs are simple and do not require my gas powered blower. It is great to have the option to grab a light-weight blower and have the job done within a couple of minutes.

- The Makita blower can be converted into a vacuum - but the attachment is NOT included. I was puzzled for a few minutes as I looked for the dust collecting attachment.

For me it works well to clear up leaves around the pool. It is much smaller than the usual electric or gas power blower. The air flow is much more narrow but still powerful. It small and light enough that my six year old daughter can handle without difficulty. Added bonus, it works wonderfully in starting a charcoal fire. It take less than 1/4 time to do so.For major clean up I still prefer my old Homelite gas power blower.

This is actually my second compact Makita cordless blower. I had the 14 volt pod style battery model. I also had the cordless drill and work light in the same series. I liked that blower so much, I replaced everything when the new 18 volt LXI lithium-ion series model came out just based on the new blower. Obviously the 14 volt was a good unit, this 18 volt LXI model is like that one on steroids. Don't let the compact size fool you, in fact the BUB182Z almost looks like a toy, this blower puts out a lot of air at excellent velocity. Now, it is not going to work well with heavy wet leaves or stones, but for dirt, dust, dead buds, dry leaves and things along those lines it is perfect. This is all you need to blow out your garage floor or clean off a porch. It is SO convenient not to have to mess with extension cords or gasoline/oil mixes. My favorite use for it, however, is to dry of my cars after washing them. I'm a bit of a fanatic about my cars and how I take care of them. Because of that I'm always concerned about swirls and scratches. This blower can easily dry two cars off one battery charge. Not only can it remove water from the large sheet metal areas, but it is perfect to get at the water you usually can't get at with a microfiber waffle weave drying towel...exterior rear view mirrors, around headlights, door handles, window moldings, gas doors, emblems and similar areas. Before these tools, after I hand dried a car, I'd move it back into the garage or open and shut a door and I would get little streaks of water running down from the places I just mentioned and I'd have to grab a towel and redry those parts of the car again to avoid water spotting. If use this blower, 95% of that is eliminated.Read more ›
