As number 1 in the best air blower buying guide, the worx wg520 turbine electric leaf blower is a lightweight leaf blower that offers a cheaper and cleaner way to blow away leaves and obstructions via turbine fan. It also comes with an attachable nozzle that helps direct the fan’s air flow. This is one of the best tools to have around if you have trees or flowers in your yard or garden.

Why We Like It – Worx WG520 Turbine Leaf Blower Review

The WORX WG520 Turbine Electric Blower has low levels of noise, only weighs about 6 Lbs., and has an adjustable air speed feature to provide more versatility. Not only can it be used for leaf blowing, but it can also be used for drying surfaces such as cars and other smaller vehicles.

Pros
  • Light weight
  • Hearing protection
  • Cord retainer
Cons
  • Not battery powered

Performance

This electric blower has high capacity air volume so that it can be usable for leaf blowing, unlike the xpower airrow multi use electric computer duster. With its variable speed control feature, the user can use it for more than just leaf blowing. The user can blow air into tight spaces with a 60 mph air volume, and those leaves are blown away with an air speed of 600 cubic feet per minute.

Design

The worx turbine blower has a turbine fan and a hyper stream air nozzle, that allows it to utilize air like a gas powered blower can, but without the smell and most of the noise. Unlike the Jastind Professional Air Blower Gun, it already contains a source of air and can’t be used for air blowing that requires precision. However, the user will definitely need an extension cord, as they won’t be able to wander too far from the socket otherwise.

Value

With its dynamic airflow design, this corded electric leaf blower is cheaper than gas blowers and alternatives such as the Max Storm durable lightweight air mover. While the Max Power mover is quite powerful, it can’t be used for leaf blowing due to not having a way to direct its airflow. However, the worx can also be used for some of Max Storm’s applications, as it can also be used to dry different surfaces- just not to the point of water damage restoration.

Worx WG520 Turbine Leaf Blower Review Wrap Up

Customer reviews have praised it for its power and how they can also use that power for more than just leaf blowing, and despite how powerful it is, leaf blowers like this are capable of being very light weight to the point that the user can operate it with just one hand.
