The new 40V max ConnectX™ Brushless Backpack Blower (model CBU02Z) has a high blowing force of 22 Newtons for the clean-up power equivalent to a 64cc gas-powered blower.

More Run Time, No Gas Hassles

The ConnectX™ System is a higher-capacity power source with 1,200 watt-hours of output. It is compatible with ConnectX™ products, including the new CBU02 Backpack Blower as well as the previously-released ConnectX™ 21” Commercial Lawn Mower, String Trimmer, and Handheld Blower. All are engineered for top performance and more work, but with lower noise, less maintenance, zero emissions, and no pull starts.

High Blowing Force and Long Run Time

The CBU02 is a cordless leaf blower with a brushless motor that delivers a high blowing force of 22 Newtons, up to 671 CFM, and 160 MPH for clean-up power equivalent to a 64cc gas backpack blower. It can run for up to 4 hours on a single charge of the ConnectX™ 1,200Wh Portable Backpack Power Supply.

Low Noise, Zero Emissions

Noise and emissions are top concerns among landscape contractors and the clients they serve, and the battery-powered CBU02 has a sound pressure rating of 60 dB(A) (measured per ANSI B 175.2 standard) and zero emissions. It has a tube-mounted variable speed trigger for power and run-time management and a cruise control setting for more comfortable continuous operation.
