Overview of the Worx TriVac WG509
- 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: Being that it is a corded blower with a 12 Amp motor, the TriVac WG509 requires a steady power source and must be plugged in when using it. Note that the power cord might not be included with the blower. Should you wish to obtain one, use our gauge calculator.
- Cord Lock Mechanism: Anyone who has experienced the frustration of having their blower suddenly stop from being accidentally unplugged will be glad to know that the TriVac WG509 has a 'cord lock' mechanism.
- Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. At 9.3 lbs, the Worx TriVac WG509 is within the average weight range of electric handheld blowers.
- Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the TriVac WG509 offers variable speed settings.
- Vacuum: As a blower vac, the TriVac WG509 handily vacuums unwanted material into a storage bag for easy disposal (11.2 gallon bag included).
- Mulching: This mulcher’s 18:1 mulching ratio means it can reduce 18 bags of leaves and debris down to one bag of mulch. The unit uses a metal impeller.
- Noise: As far as electric handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 50 dB.
- 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 TriVac WG509's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Worx TriVac WG509 compare with similar leaf blowers.
- Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 210 MPH. This puts the TriVac WG509 ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in electric handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Craftsman CMEBL7000 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 CAT DG651, which boasts with 800 CFM.
