Your first thought might be like ours which was, really a cordless fan… Then we thought about it another second and there might be some very nice application for this like camping in the summer. We will be very interested to see what the CFM output is but this could be pretty handy for some situations, cooling a large jobsite probably isn’t one of them. It looks like it is already on Amazon for $89 BCF201Z, without batteries. We will follow up soon in the meantime see the full Makita Press Release below.
