    First off, the WG521 is by far the best blower I have ever owned. It has 4 speeds, and it makes short work of blowing large parking lots clear of debris. The performance details to consider would include air velocity, air volume, weight, loudness, and ergonomics. After about 6 months of fairly significant use, here are my thoughts:

    1. Air velocity: Powerful enough to blow typical 1″ landscaping rock around…9 out of 10
    2. Air volume: Certainly this unit’s strongest point…10 out of 10
    3. Weight: Considering its power, this unit’s weight would be acceptable, and it feels well-built…8 out of 10
    4. Loudness: I don’t have a way to measure/compare decibels, but given it’s power, the sound level is acceptable…8 out of 10.
    5. Ergonomics: This unit is well balanced and easy enough to wield, but the biggest weakness is the $#@* 4-position power/speed rolling-type switch. It is recessed too far into the handle, difficult to “roll”, making it VERY difficult to turn on or change speeds when wearing gloves. I have to remove my gloves when I want to turn it on/off or change speeds, and even then, it is still very hard to “roll” this switch. This is the AG521’s only Achilles heel, but it is a really annoying one. WORX folks…fix this annoying issue and you will have the absolute best blower by far on the market.

    + PROS: PowerfulWell-balancedAcceptable noise level
    - CONS: Worst power on/off/speed switch ever...extremely difficult to use.

    Okay, great blower. Really powerful.

    Needs a flat nozzle attachment!!!!! Not having one is SERIOUSLY a major faux pas on the part of the manufacturer. I mean, it’s a LEAF BLOWER.

    Also, THIS article says that it’s a real speed. Wrong. It’s fully ajustable.

    Only FOUR stars because it doesn’t have the flat nozzle.

    + PROS: Powerful.Doesn't get much trash stuck on the intake even in piles of leaves that are 16 inches high.
    - CONS: No flat nozzle.Loud (DUH!)

You can compare as many blowers as you wish. However, for the best results, we recommend you to compare only 2 blowers at a time.
