Overview of the Worx TriVac WG512
- Power: The Worx TriVac WG512 can force 600 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 75 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.
- Cord Lock Mechanism: It has a cord lock mechanism, so there’s far less risk of having the cord come unplugged when the unit is in operation.
- 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 8.6 lbs, the Worx TriVac WG512 is on the heavier side for electric handheld blowers.
- Speed Settings: Not all jobs need full power. The TriVac WG512 has 2 speed settings so, you can blow more or less air from the blower depending on the job.
- Vacuum: For those who really want to make leaves disappear, the TriVac WG512 has a handy 'blower vac' feature (the keyword here being 'vac', aka 'vacuum'). It allows the operator to collect leaves and light debris in a collection bag to be easily discarded after the job is finished (11.2 gallon bag included).
- Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 16:1, this mulcher can reliably pulp 16 bags of waste (such as leaves and other debris) into 1 bag of mulch.
- Noise: With a decibel rating of 79 dB, the TriVac WG512 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.

Questions & Answers
How come the CFM is higher than most models but the blowing speed is so low? (Asked June 11, 2020)
CFM and MPH are 2 really different metrics. CFM is pretty much fixed, while MPH can be influenced by the diameter of the output. Think about blowing through a straw or blowing with your mouth wide open. An approximate same volume/amount of air (CFM) will exit your mouth in both cases, but that air will exit at higher speed through the straw (because the output diameter is lower). Read our article dedicated to CFM and MPH to learn more.
