Worx Turbine 12 Amp Corded Leaf Blower WG520 Review
Worx 12 Amp Turbine Corded Leaf blower
So today I’m going to review the Worx turbine corded leaf blower which features 600 CFM/110 mph air output. The turbine 600 is definitely one of the fastest ways to clean up your yard hands down. The turbine jet technology has some of the most powerful blowing force I found in a non gas powered leaf blower. You get all the benefits of a professional blower without having to deal with gas, fuel mixture, and harmful emissions.
The Worx turbine blower extremely lightweight. I found it light enough for one-handed use so even older people and kids can have the pleasure of doing some leaf blowing. At 6 lb this is a leaf blower that just about anybody can use easily.
This blower features a hyper stream air nozzle which boost airflow to help tackle even some of the heaviest debris including wet leaves and grass. I was able to blow debris from almost 15 feet away with the Worx turbine blower.
Another great thing about this blower is that is extremely quiet. I wouldn’t hesitate to use in in the mornings or in the evenings as I doubt the neighbors will even hear it if their windows are shut.
I know what you’re thinking. Do I really want a leaf blower that I have to plug in and drag a long cord around everywhere? Wouldn’t a battery powered leaf blower be much more convenient? Yes a battery powered leaf blower is much more mobile than a corded version like this Worx. However, the batteries for those blowers can be extremely expensive and on average you only get between 15 to 30 minutes of continuous run time from a typical 40 V battery system. With a corded blower, there is no limit on how long you can use it.
If you have a very large piece of property then a corded leaf blower probably isn’t the best option. But if you just need to do some blowing around your backyard, driveway, or patio that a corded blower will be perfect.
Pro Tip: Don’t aim this blower directly at anyone’s face. You can almost blow someones eyeball’s out of the socket…which isn’t a good thing.
