Overview of the Worx TriVac WG512
- Power: This electric leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 600 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 75 MPH.
- Power delivery: Being that it is a corded blower with a 12 Amp motor, the TriVac WG512 requires a steady power source and must be plugged in when using it. 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: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. However, for a electric handheld blower, the Worx TriVac WG512 is heavier than most, weighing 8.6 lbs.
- Speed Settings: Thanks to its 2 speed settings, the Worx TriVac WG512 allows the user to adjust the air output to the task in hand.
- Vacuum: The TriVac WG512 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: Its mulching ratio is 16:1, meaning that it will turn 16 bags of soft debris into one bag of mulch.
- 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.

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.
