18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 2-Pc. Combo Kit (4.0Ah)
With zero emissions and lower noise, the 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless 2 Pc. Combo Kit (XT286SM1) is a welcome solution for clean-up applications. The kit includes an 18V LXT Brushless Cordless Blower (XBU03Z), 18V LXT Brushless String Trimmer (XRU12Z), 4.0Ah Battery (BL1840B), and Charger (DC18SD). Both are powered by a single 18V LXT battery, the same battery that powers the full range of solutions in the expanding LXT system.
This blower features a compact and ergonomic design, weighing in at only 6.5 lbs. and measuring 32-1/2" long. With no carbon brushes, the Makita® BL™ Brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life, and delivers speeds up to 116 MPH air velocity and a full 459 CFM.
Makita's efficient BL™ Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per battery charge than similar non-brushless tools. Electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match the changing demands of the application for increased power and speed when needed. A cruise control lever provides management of power and run time.
The efficient brushless motor delivers up to 6,000 RPM for faster cutting with the string trimmer. The XRU12Z is equipped with Automatic Torque Drive Technology, which automatically shifts from 4,000-6,000 RPM depending on the density of the application. There are three speed options (4,000/5,000/6,000 RPM), allowing users to match the speed to the application. The easy-loading bump-and-feed trimmer head is compatible with .080" or .095" line and offers reverse rotation allowing users to quickly clear the head of entangled grass and weeds.
Both pieces of power equipment features 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.
These products are a part of Makita's expanding 18V lithium-ion system, the world's largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. 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 Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
