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: This is a corded blower, so its 12 Amp motor needs to be plugged into a power source during use. 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.
- Speed Settings: With 2 speed settings, this blower’s output can be set to meet the needs of jobs big or small.
- 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: This mulcher’s 16:1 mulching ratio means it can reduce 16 bags of leaves and debris down to one bag of mulch. The unit uses a metal impeller.
- Noise: Its noise rating of 79 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 TriVac WG512's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Worx TriVac WG512 compare with similar leaf blowers.
- Air expelled from the nozzle of this blower can reach 75 MPH. When compared to others of this type, the TriVac WG512 has a lower air speed than most electric handheld blowers. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Craftsman CMEBL7000, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 260 MPH.
- If air volume is an important feature, the TriVac WG512 by Worx will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 600 CFM (cubic feet per minute), which is more powerful than most electric handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the CAT DG651, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.

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.
