- 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.

- Speed Settings: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the Worx TriVac WG509 allows precise control of the air output.

- Noise: With a decibel rating of 50 dB, the TriVac WG509 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.
- 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.
