Makita’s blowers are used to maintain some of the country’s most high profile places including the grounds of The Tower of London. The range includes cordless, handheld and backpack blowers. The latest additions to the range are the EB7650TH 4-stroke back pack and the DUB362X Twin 18v blowers.
The EB7650TH maintains the proven Makita MM4 75cc 4-stroke engine with 2.7kW output, and with a punchy 4.4Nm of torque, will generate a huge air volume of 19 cubic metres per minute with a super-fast air speed of 90 metres per second.
The new design of machine frame includes an improved style of carry handle and a foot plate on the base of the frame that enhances stability when the start cord is pulled. The 3” diameter air tube has an adjustable long reach extension so the end of the tube can be set at a length suited to the operator and the application and is supplied with three alternative nozzle shapes.
A new anti-icing system has been introduced in this model in which a simple dial valve bleeds warm air from around the exhaust towards the carburettor to stop icing in cold working conditions.
Developed as the most powerful cordless blower available, the Makita DUB362Z brushless Twin 18v blower runs up to 21,500rpm, produces a maximum air volume of 13.3 m³/m with a maximum air speed of 53 m/s. This compares favourably with a 4-stroke back-pack contractors blower with 19 m³/m volume and 90 m/s speed. Air volume and speed can be adjusted to six settings with variable control by the trigger to achieve a consistent delivery. Weighing just 4.5kg this powerful blower has a comfortable hand-grip and 3-stage telescopic long nozzle that 100mm adjustment on the overall length of the pipe. Vibrations are very low at just 2.5 m/s² with maximum noise at 79.1 dB(A).
Makita’s twin-battery power system utilises two 18v Lithium-Ion batteries in combination to deliver 36v power. Two 18v batteries are directly installed on the machines to supply energy to the powerful 36v DC motor.
