How heavy is the 7.5 Amp Electric 2-Speed Leaf Blower?
The great news is that it’s not heavy! The Electric 2-Speed Leaf Blower only weighs 4.4 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.
How long is the cord?
The Electric Leaf Blower does not have an attached cord. Plug in an extension cord to the back of the blower and use the onboard extension cord retainer to help keep your power cords connected, even if it gets caught while you’re working.
What kind of extension cord should I use?
The right extension cord will ensure you get the performance you expect and will extend the life of your blower. Look for an extension cord rated for Outdoor Use and make sure the gauge of the cord is appropriate for the length you’re using. The WG506 is a 7.5 Amp tool, so check for gauge and length on the grid here, or in your manual. Your local hardware or garden supply store will be happy to help you select the right cord to meet your needs.
What is the horsepower rating of the 7.5 Amp Electric Leaf Blower? How powerful is it?
Horsepower rating is more accurately used to describe gas-powered tools. The WG506 Electric Leaf Blower has a power rating of 7.5 Amps and with a max airflow of 160 cfm, you can be sure it has the power to get the job done.
Is this also a vacuum or mulcher like some of the other electric blowers WORX offers?
The WG506 does not include either a vacuum or mulching feature. For a complete 3-in-1 electric leaf blower/vacuum/mulcher, check out the WORX TRIVAC.
Is the 7.5 Amp Electric Leaf Blower variable speed? How do I change the speed?
Yes, the WG506 Electric Leaf Blower does have a 2-speed control. The control is in the perfect position for one-handed operation. To change the speed of the blower, use the power switch on the top of the handle to go from low to GO!
Does it come pre-assembled?
Each 7.5 Amp Electric 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 leaf blower together, can I disassemble it?
Yes, you can disassemble the electric blower 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 blower.
I misplaced my manual. Is there anywhere I can get more information?

Are there any precautions I should follow when using the blower with damp leaves? Will I get shocked?
