Frequently Asked Questions
How heavy is the TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower?
The great news is that it’s not heavy! The TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower only weighs 8.1 lbs. Our ergonomic design ensures even this small amount of weight is optimally distributed to make clean up comfortable, while keeping the controls easily accessible.
I have seen the TURBINE Leaf Blower as electric or battery operated. Which one is correct?
WORX has an entire family of TURBINE products, some of which are battery operated and some of which are electric. The WG591 is a battery-powered model, and uses a 56V MaxLithium battery.
How long can you use the TURBINE 56V on each battery charge?
Run time will vary from job to job, depending on how each person works. To maximize the run time you get out of the battery, use the appropriate speed for the job at hand. Lower speeds are ideal for cleaning off hard surfaces, like driveways, sidewalks, patios or garages. Faster speeds are ideal for cleaning the leaves out of your grass and use more power to give you the blowing force needed to get the job done. Since most clean up jobs will involve switching between lower and higher speeds, actual run time results will vary. The battery included with your TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower will take you far, but remember - you can also use the 56V WORX batteries you already have so you’ll never be out of power.
Does this use the same batteries as my other 56V WORX tools?
Yes! With PowerShare, you can share the battery and save money. Your TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower can use any WORX 56V battery you already have. By sharing the battery between tools, you’ll always have the power you need to complete any job. See the full line of 56V PowerShare tools here.
How long does it take to charge the 56V MaxLithium battery?
It takes approximately 90 minutes to fully charge the battery.
Are lithium batteries interchangeable with Ni-Cd batteries?
Our lithium tools and Ni-Cd tools are separate platforms and are not interchangeable. Lithium batteries offer our customers maintenance-free technology without the hassle of managing the memory effect inherent in Ni-Cd batteries.
Are the 56V lithium batteries interchangeable with the 40V or 48V lithium batteries?
While PowerShare allows you to share batteries between tools within the same voltage family, batteries should only be used with tools of a corresponding voltage. Use your 56V lithium battery with any 56V WORX tool, but save your 40V/48V battery for your 40V/48V tools.
What is the horsepower rating of the TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower? How powerful is it?
Horsepower rating is more accurately used to describe gas-powered tools. The TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower is powered by a MaxLithium battery with a 2.5 Amp Hour rating, which measures how much energy can be stored in the battery (energy capacity). With a max airflow of 465 cfm, you can be sure the TURBINE 56V has the power to get the job done.
Is this also a vacuum like some of the other blowers WORX offers?
The WG591 does not include a vacuum feature. For a complete 3-in-1 electric leaf blower/vacuum/mulcher, check out the WORX TRIVAC.
Is the TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower variable speed? How do I change the speed?
Yes, the WG591 TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower does have a variable speed control. The control is in the perfect position for one-handed operation. To change the speed of the blower, use the orange dial at the front of the handle to go from low to GO!
Does it come pre-assembled?
Each TURBINE 56V leaf blower comes with some minor assembly required, but it will take less than 3 minutes and will not require tools.
Once I put the TURBINE together, can I disassemble it?
Yes, you can disassemble the TURBINE 56V after you’ve put it together. Press the convenient clip on the left side of the TURBINE nozzle to release the nozzle. Hold this down and pull the nozzle straight away from the motor. Separating the motor and nozzle makes the tool more compact for transport or easy storage in tight spaces.
If you need to further disassemble the nozzle, find the small, rectangular shape with rounded corners near the seam of the two nozzle pieces. Press down hard on this space while pushing the seam against a hard surface. It is difficult to separate, but may be done if necessary.
Are there any precautions I should follow when using the blower with damp leaves? Will I get shocked?
The TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower is double-insulated to prevent shock, but we recommend that our customers follow standard safety precautions while using our tools - including wearing safety eyewear, gloves, appropriate shoes & clothing, and keeping hair tied back.
ATTENTION: The back of the motor housing is the air intake for the TURBINE Leaf Blower. Keep all lose clothing, hair and debris away from this area to avoid accident, injury or damage to the tool. Hold the blower at your side and keep the back of the motor housing clear at all times.
I didn’t receive a wall mount with this tool, but I thought it was supposed to have one. How can I get it?
It’s not missing, just improved. In addition to our passion for innovation, WORX uses customer feedback to continually improve our tools, and some of the feedback we received was not everyone had the space to mount a separate wall bracket to hang their tools - or that it wasn’t compatible with their current storage space. Instead of including an extra piece with the TURBINE 56V Leaf Blower, we built the wall mount into the tool! On the back of the motor housing, under the orange air vent, is a key-hole shaped cutout. This gives you the flexibility to use what you have – hooks, bolts, or nails – to hang up your TURBINE without changing a thing.
