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: The Worx WG505 can force 350 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 210 MPH.
  • Power delivery: As it is a corded model, the blower needs to be plugged in to a power source in order for the 12 Amp motor to operate. 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.

    The Worx TriVac WG505 features a 12-amp motor, which works on 120V

    For this unit and this selected length, you should choose an extension cord with an AWG rating of

  • Cord Lock Mechanism: Corded power tools can sometimes inadvertently be unplugged during operation. The Worx WG505 prevents such accidents by featuring a cord lock mechanism.
  • Handling: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. However, for an electric handheld blower, the Worx WG505 is heavier than most, weighing 9.5 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: As with similar models of its class, this leaf blower has just one operating speed.
  • Vacuum: As a blower vac, the WG505 handily vacuums unwanted material into a storage bag for easy disposal (11.2 gallon bag included).
  • Mulching: The manufacturer’s specifications give it a mulching ratio of 16:1. For every 16 bags you put in, it will reduce down to just one bag of mulch. The unit uses a metal impeller.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 70 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric handheld blowers.
  • TriVac: This Worx blower is called a TriVac, which is one of the names Worx gives to its power tools that function as a 3-in-1 leaf blower, vacuum, and mulcher.

The Worx WG505's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Worx WG505 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 210 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most electric handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Toro Ultra Blower Vac 51619 and its 260 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Its max air volume rating (350 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of electric handheld blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Bauer 58905, which boasts with 805 CFM.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other blower vacs, the Worx WG505 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.
