  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. At 7.5 lbs, the Worx WG518 is within the average weight range of electric handheld blowers.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its 2 speed settings, the Worx WG518 allows the user to adjust the air output to the task in hand.
  • Vacuum: For those who really want to make leaves disappear, the WG518 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: With a mulching ratio of 16:1, this mulcher can reliably pulp 16 bags of waste (such as leaves and other debris) into 1 bag of mulch.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 82 dB, the WG518 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.
