Makita X4 72V Backpack Blower Spotted ?

Cody Robertson wrote in about a new Makita patent showing a new battery powered back pack leaf blower. They don’t have any battery powered backpack leaf blowers so that in itself is big news but that’s not even the most interesting bit of info here because it is shown with four Makita 18V batteries on board!

If all four batteries are used in series then this will be an X4 tool with 72 volts!

Keep in mind this is just a patent so it may or may not come to fruition but at least we know it’s possible from the Makita brand. I’d say that the diagram looks very detailed and complex so it may very well be nearing development and might be ready for production.
