  • Speed Settings: With 2 speed settings, this blower’s output can be set to meet the needs of jobs big or small.
  • Vacuum: This unit isn’t just a blower—it has the added feature of being able to collect leaves and soft debris into a handy storage bag (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. The unit uses a metal impeller.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 82 dB, the WG518 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

The Worx WG518's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Worx WG518 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 250 MPH. This puts the WG518 ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in electric handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Craftsman CMEBL7000 and its 260 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • The WG518 is average in terms of air volume. It's rated at 400 CFM, which is common for electric handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the CAT DG651, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
