The Worx TriVac WG509

  • Power: The Worx TriVac WG509 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.

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

  • Cord Lock Mechanism: Since accidental disconnection can be a real inconvenience, the TriVac WG509 features a reliable cord lock to prevent it from being unplugged during use.
  • 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. Be aware that, at 9.3 lbs, the Worx TriVac WG509 is on the heavier side for electric handheld blowers.
  • Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the TriVac WG509 features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Vacuum: The TriVac WG509 is also what is known as a 'blower vac'. Those who don’t wish to blow leaves and debris away can switch to its vacuum setting and suck them into a collection bag (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.
  • 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.
