Overview of the Worx WG583
- Power: The WG583 is a cordless blower made by Worx. It has a maximum air speed of 185 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 350 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
- Power delivery: Worx designed this unit and its brushless, battery-operated motor with top-of-the-food-chain maneuverability in mind. The WG583 doesn’t need to be plugged in, so you can take it anywhere easily.
- Battery: Its 4 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery system (2 Power Share WA3578 batteries included) offers a maximum autonomy of 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.
- Speed Settings: With 2 speed settings, this blower’s output can be set to meet the needs of jobs big or small.
- Vacuum: For those who really want to make leaves disappear, the WG583 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 (9 gallon bag included).
- Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 12:1, this mulcher can shrink 12 bags of leaves down to one bag of mulch, helping you get rid of unwanted leaves and debris. The unit uses a plastic impeller.
- Noise: As far as electric handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 70 dB.
The Worx WG583's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Worx WG583 compare with similar leaf blowers.
- Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 185 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most 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.
- It’s capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 350 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This places it at the low end compared to other cordless handheld blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the CAT DG651, which boasts with 800 CFM.
- Users can expect a maximum autonomy of 30 minutes from its battery, which means the WG583 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 Toro 51822 which offers up to 140 minutes of runtime.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Worx WG583 is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this blower nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.
