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. Note that the power cord might not be included with the blower. Should you wish to obtain one, use our gauge calculator.
- Cord Lock Mechanism: Corded power tools can sometimes inadvertently be unplugged during operation. The Worx TriVac WG512 prevents such accidents by featuring a cord lock mechanism.
- Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. At 8.6 lbs, the Worx TriVac WG512 is within the average weight range of electric handheld blowers.
- 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: As a blower vac, the TriVac WG512 handily vacuums unwanted material into a storage bag for easy disposal (11.2 gallon bag included).
- Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 16:1, this mulcher can shrink 16 bags of leaves down to one bag of mulch, helping you get rid of unwanted leaves and debris. 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.

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.
