About this deal
Makita reserves the right to change specification of products without notice. Standard equipment and specifications may differ from country to country. Some products published here may not be sold in your country. The contents of the leaflets can be different from current products since they are original. The air volume is far less than the other blowers in the trial and really shows in the Makita 183Z’s ability to shift leaves. On full power, the blower easily lifted damp leaves over a 4-inch kerb on my drive, but it took a slow five minutes to clear them off 40 square metres of grass. As a result of the low volume of air, it takes longer for the Makita DUB183Z to do its work, but it’s still quite a powerful compact machine. Why buy the Makita DUB183Z?
The Makita DUB185Z is a Body Only Blower powered by an 18V Li-ion LXT slide-type battery (Not included). The machine has 3 air volume settings; low, medium and high, with a variable speed which is fine-tuned by the trigger. This can deliver up to 18,000 rpm, 98 metres per second maximum air velocity. The DUB185 can be changed to a vacuum with 5.8 kPa maximum sealed suction for a faster clean up. It becomes a vacuum by attaching the blower nozzle on the side and using a dust bag (not supplied). Sold without a battery or charger in a cardboard box. Features:
On the lowest setting, the Makita DUB183Z can barely move a piece of tissue paper over a floor, so this would make it ideal for blowing light dust across a workshop floor. Its variable-speed trigger means it’s useful for any tasks requiring steady, gentle power, such as clearing grass clippings off a path.
Product dimensions are stated with a battery / batteries, if they affect the overall dimensions of the product. When you switch on the leaf blower the sound resembles a hairdryer, and even on the top setting it only reaches “crazy hairdryer” in volume. This helps if you don’t want to annoy close neighbours. The Makita DUB185 features variable speed control by trigger and 3 air volume settings: Low, Medium, High. Ideal for removing leaves, dirt and sawdust. The air speed can be individually adjusted in three stages. An air flow of 98 m/s is generated. The air volume is 192 m 3 /h. Can also be converted into a vacuum with an optional dust bag.
The controls couldn’t be simpler, and this is one of the nicest things about the machine. It’s also very light, compact and well-balanced, and when held in the hand the curved nozzle is almost horizontal to the ground, so it’s at the perfect angle for wafting leaves along. The DUB185Z has three air volume settings Low, Medium and High and easily controlled by the variable speed trigger incorporated within the ergonomically designed soft-grip handle. This blower is compatible with all Makita 18v LXT batteries and features a battery protection circuit designed to protect them from overload and high temperature. The Makita DUB186 18v LXT cordless leaf blower follows on from the popular DUB183 model, but provides approximately 20% more power from the same form. The DUB186's long leaf blower nozzle makes it ideal for clearing gardens and pathways. It has 3 air volume settings, and a variable speed that can be changed at the push of a button. With a maximum air velocity of 244.87km/h and a maximum air volume of 3.2m³/min, this blower is a powerful tool to keep your garden and pathways looking clean and clear. Plus, it's lightweight - weighing only 2.1kg with a battery, it's easy to manoeuvre and comfortable to carry. When powered with a BL1850B 5.0Ah battery, the blower will last for a runtime of 2 hours.
