Description

The WORX TRIVAC 3-in-1 Blower / Mulcher / Vacuum has the versatility to change jobs with the flip of a switch. Because there are no tubes to switch between tasks, you can blow away debris at 210 mph, then easily change to vacuuming dry leaves at up to 14 gallons per minute all with a single tool combining the power of a leaf blower, vacuum, and mulcher.

Overview of the Worx WG505

The Worx WG505 in use

The Worx WG505

  • Power: This electric leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 350 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 210 MPH.
  • Power delivery: This is a corded blower, so its 12 Amp motor needs to be plugged into a power source during use. Please note that some manufacturers don’t include the cord with the unit. If this is the case, or if you’re looking to buy a backup, please use our gauge calculator to ensure you’re buying the right cord for your blower.

  • Speed Settings: The Worx WG505 does not have multiple speed settings. Once the blower is turned on, it always operates at the same speed.
