Description

Unusual design, unusually-good results. The in-line motor provides the power of a larger leaf blower while allowing the tool to remain compact. The Variable Air Control Nozzle lets you choose between more air volume, or more airspeed.

Overview of the Worx WG543

The Worx WG543 in use

The Worx WG543

  • Power: The Worx WG543 is a cordless blower with a maximum air volume rating of 400 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 125 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Worx designed this unit and its brushless, battery-operated motor with top-of-the-food-chain maneuverability in mind. The WG543 doesn’t need to be plugged in, so you can take it anywhere easily.
  • Battery: Its 4 Ah 20 V Li-ion battery (1 WA3578 battery included) means that a user can operate the WG543 for an estimated 30 minutes on a full charge.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. When compared to other cordless handheld blowers, the Worx WG543 stands out due to its lower weight: just 3.8 lbs battery included.
  • Speed Settings: With 2 speed settings, this blower’s output can be set to meet the needs of jobs big or small.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 69 dB, the WG543 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

The Worx WG543's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Worx WG543 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • The Worx WG543 expels air at speeds up to 125 MPH, making it standard in terms of air speed for battery-operated handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU01PT and its 208 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the Worx WG543 can reach 400 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on par with other cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the CAT DG651, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Users can expect a maximum autonomy of 30 minutes from its battery, which means the WG543 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Makita CBU01Z which offers up to 300 minutes of runtime.

Here's a list of the most popular specific comparisons:
