The great news is that it’s not heavy! The TURBINE 450 Leaf Blower only weighs 6.4 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.
WORX has an entire family of TURBINE products, some of which are battery operated and some of which are electric. The WG517 is an electric model.
The TURBINE 450 Leaf Blower’s attached cord is 11-1/2” and is equipped with an extension cord retainer to help keep your power cords connected, even if it gets caught while you’re working.
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 WG517 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.
Horsepower rating is more accurately used to describe gas-powered tools. The TURBINE 450 Leaf Blower has a power rating of 7.5 Amps. With a max airflow of 450 cfm, you can be sure the TURBINE 450 has the power to get the job done.
The WG517 does not include a vacuum feature. For a complete 3-in-1 electric leaf blower/vacuum/mulcher, check out the TURBINEFUSION Blower / Mulcher / Vac.
Yes, the TURBINE 450 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!
Each TURBINE 450 leaf blower comes with some minor assembly required, but it will take less than 3 minutes and will not require tools.
Yes, you can disassemble the TURBINE 450 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.
The TURBINE 450 Electric 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 and clothing, and keeping hair tied back.
ATTENTION: The back of the motor housing is the air intake for the TURBINE 450 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.
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 450 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.
