Overview of the Worx Turbine WG517

  • Power: The Worx Turbine WG517 is an electric blower with a maximum air volume rating of 450 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 120 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Being that it is a corded blower with a 7.5 Amp motor, the Turbine WG517 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: Anyone who has experienced the frustration of having their blower suddenly stop from being accidentally unplugged will be glad to know that the Turbine WG517 has a 'cord lock' mechanism.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. All told, it weighs 6.4 lbs — the Worx Turbine WG517 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest electric handheld blower on the market.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its 4 speed settings, the Worx Turbine WG517 allows the user to adjust the air output to the task in hand.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 81 dB, the Turbine WG517 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.
