Frequently Asked Questions
How heavy is the 20V AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper?
The great news is that it’s not heavy! The WORX AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper only weighs 3.5lbs. With our ergonomic design to ensure even this small amount of weight is optimally distributed, clean-up has never been so effortless, comfortable or so portable!
Is the WORX AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper electric or battery operated?
WORX has an entire family of products, some of which are battery operated and some of which are electric. The WG545.1 is a battery-powered model and uses a 20V WORX battery.
How long can you use the WORX AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper on each 20 Volt Max Lithium battery charge?
Runtime will vary from job to job, and sometimes between users, depending on how each person works. The battery included with your Worx AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper will take you far, but remember you can also use any 20V Worx batteries you already have so you’ll never be out of power.
Is the battery larger than previous models?
The WORX AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper features our highest capacity battery to date. The included 20 Volt Max Lithium Battery has an amp hour rating of 2.0 vs our previous models 1.3 amp hour rating. The amp hour rating measures how much energy can be stored in the battery (energy capacity). The WORX 20V Max Lithium 2.0Ah Battery can hold almost twice the amount of energy as previous models. WORX has achieved this higher battery capacity due to advanced battery chemistry without making the batter larger than before.
Is the battery going to be powerful enough?
The lithium battery that powers the cordless WORX AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper is the same 2.0 Ah battery sold with our 20V trimmer/edgers and the same one we use in our professional cordless drills. They’re powerful to drill through concrete and large timber, so they’re definitely powerful enough for clean-up that gives your lawn the professionally manicured look you’ve always wanted.
Does this use the same batteries as my other 20V WORX tools?
Yes! With Powershare, you can share the battery and save money. Your WORX AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper can use any 20V WORX battery you already have. By sharing the battery between tools, you’ll always have the power you need to complete any job.
What is the horsepower rating of WORX lithium tools?
Battery powered DC motors are not rated for horsepower as output power is only measured with gas or induction AC (corded) motors. WORX lithium powered products are designed with sufficient power to get the job done quickly & easily.
How long does it take to charge the 20 Volt Max battery?
It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.
Are lithium batteries interchangeable with the Ni-Cad?
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-Cad batteries.
Are the 20 Volt Max Lithium batteries interchangeable with the 32 Volt Max Lithium Battery?
While Power Share allows you to share batteries between tools within the same voltage family, batteries can only be used with tools of a corresponding voltage. Use your 20V Max Lithium battery with any 20V Worx tool – even the power tools – but save your 32V battery for your 32V tools.
What is the horsepower rating of the Worx AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper? How powerful is it?
Horsepower rating is more accurately used to describe gas-powered tools. The WORX WG545.1 AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper is powered by a 20V battery with a 2.0 Amp hour rating, which measures how much energy can be stored in the battery (energy capacity). This is twice as powerful as our previous 20V batteries, an expansion achieved through advanced battery chemistry and not by increasing the size. You can depend on the power they provide. With an airspeed of 120mph, you can be sure the WORX AIR has the power to get the job done, whether cleaning up lawn trimmings or sweeping leaves off the front porch.
Is this also a vacuum like some of the other electric blowers Worx offers?
The WG545.1 does not include a vacuum feature. For a complete 3-in-1 electric leaf blower/vacuum/mulcher, check out the Worx TriVac
or the Worx TURBINE Fusion
Is the WORX AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper variable speed? How do I change the speed?
The WG545.1 WORX AIR is not a variable speed blower. If you’re interested in having more control over the air flow or speed, check out our Turbine family of blowers.
Does it come pre-assembled?
Each WORX AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper comes with some minor assembly required, but it will take less than 3 minutes and will not require tools.
Once I put the AIR together, can I disassemble it?
Yes, you can disassemble the AIR after you’ve put it together. We make it convenient so you can easily switch out the accessories to meet the needs of each job. Locate the textured circle on top of the WORX AIR long tube. Press it and pull the tube away from the body of the WORX AIR. To install other accessories, line up the textured circle on the WORX AIR with the corresponding hole on the accessory and push them on until they click.
Are there any precautions I should follow when using the blower with damp leaves? Will I get shocked?
Regardless of the tool or job at hand, we recommend that our customers follow standard safety precautions while using our tools, including wearing safety eyewear, gloves, appropriate shoes and clothing, and keeping hair tied back.
: The motor housing under the body of the tool is the air intake for the WORX AIR Cordless Leaf Blower / Sweeper. 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.
