A NEW high-power blower has joined Makita’s growing range of outdoor equipment.

The UB003C 36V Blower combines comfort and functionality with a high-performance brushless motor and battery system to deliver a maximum air velocity of 86 m/s and long runtimes, making it an ideal companion for grounds maintenance professionals. 

Lightweight and comfortable to use, the new UB003C offers an average blowing force of 24 N, a maximum air volume of 17.6 m3 per second, and air velocity up to 86 m per second. For clearing large areas, this machine can provide a continuous runtime of up to 60 minutes from a single charge. 

This is made possible by attaching Makita’s backpack battery system to the machine, for all-day work and performance without the hassle of using petrol or power cables. Specifically, rather than conventional batteries, the UB003C can be connected to either the PDC1200 (33.5 Ah) or PDC1500 (43.5 Ah) portable power packs as part of the manufacturer’s ConnectX system, or to Makita’s PDC01 battery backpack (all sold separately).

Matt Chilton, product manager at Makita UK, said: “This is an extremely versatile tool that affords users with more flexibility over their work. The compatibility of the UB003C with our ConnectX portable power packs is what makes this blower stand out – enabling maintenance professionals to complete larger tasks with ease, with up to an hour of high performance blowing.”
