Overview of the Worx WG520
- Power: The Worx WG520 can force 600 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 110 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. 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: Since accidental disconnection can be a real inconvenience, the WG520 features a reliable cord lock to prevent it from being unplugged during use.
- 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 WG520 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest electric handheld blower on the market.
- Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the WG520 features variable speed settings for added control.
- Noise: With a decibel rating of 82 dB, the WG520 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Worx WG520 compare with similar leaf blowers.
- Maxing out at 110 MPH at full power, this blower is on the lower end in terms of air speed for 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 WG520 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 Worx Turbine WG521, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.

Questions & Answers
Is a second handle available for the bottom of the WG520 blower. My wife says she needs one. There is a key hole slot on the bottom for something. (Asked September 24, 2020)
We are not aware of the existence of secondary handles. The key-hole shaped cutout at the bottom gives you the flexibility to use what you have – hooks, bolts, or nails – to hang your blower on the wall.
