This Makita Engine Drum Adapter Kit attaches a 4 cycle Makita BHX2500CA leaf blower to an 8-16 gallon steel drum lid.

This Makita engine drum adapter kit comes complete with all parts to adapt your Makita BHX2500CA leaf blower to a steel vacuum drum lid.  The complete assembly then will fit on a Cat 6 Tools 8 or 16 gallon Vacuum Filter Drum Separator to make a Makita Gasoline powered Filter Drum.

In other words, if you already have a Vacuum Drum Filter Separator and want to attach your blower to make a vacuum this is the kit for you.   As a result, the Adapter Kit allows you to have a dual purpose vacuum drum that works as a Filter Separator or as a Vacuum Drum.  In other words because of our engineering design, this  Makita Engine Mounting Kit by Cat 6 Tools, LLC is unique as it requires only a minor modification to the Makita Engine.   The Makita Blower can be reverted back to its original condition as a Makita mini 4 stroke engine leaf blower.

The Cat 6 Tools’ Makita Vacuum Filter Bucket uses this kit.

The Mounting Kit comes complete with:

  • Drum lid,
  • engine adapter,
  • gasket,
  • mounting plate,
  • strap
  • finger guard adapter
  • stainless hardware.

The following picture is for illustration only.   The center lid would be replaced with a drum lid.
