Rated 2 out of 5 by guitar_boy2021 from LET DOWN [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought tbis about a month ago and at first glance, it seemed to be awesome, but as I used it a while, its not as cool as I thought. First of all, there were parts missing and I can’t tighten up D-handle. The strap was also missing. The handle constantia turns no matter how tight I get it. If I tighten it anymore, it could break. It causes my hand to hurt bad.There’s a missing piece to handle that fills gap in the handle screw. I have contacted worx many times, but they never fixed problem or they just hung up or disconnectrd the chat/call. I am truly disappointed. I was going to purchase another one beford this happen and they faised to price up on me. I was on phone for hours and had to threaten them with a complaint to corporate, but that did mo good. They have now canceled my account in retaliation, I assume. I am.on the fence about ordering anything else.
Rated 4 out of 5 by BonBon74 from No more mixing! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Nitro 40V Cordless Attachment-Capable Driveshare 15″ String Trimmer is so easy to use.Pop on the batteries and away you go.Just as powerful as the gas powered trimmers,but without the hassle of mixing of gas.Let alone the struggle to start it.Love the fact I can add attachments to it.Fits most is very vague.Cuts like a breeze! The batteries charge easy.Let alone they actually can hold a charge,better than other battery operated equipment. The only complaint I have is the manual isn’t very clear,it took awhile for use to figure out assembly.It’s not very clear how we would change the line or what kind it uses. That would be useful.I guess I’ll be calling to find out that information.
Rated 5 out of 5 by funkey one from It’s a Beast! While I just recently bought it, haven’t had a chance to explore all the options, but it is every bit as powerful as the gas trimmers I’ve owned. I never feel “cheated” using it. I really like the versatility of the attachments and one reason in particular, is that it affords me the opportunity to trim and limb some trees on my property without calling a pro for every need. Also, with it’s universality and interchangeability, it can power the attachments of other manufacturers (which would be of value to those owning competitors models which no longer run).
Rated 4 out of 5 by chattydaddy from Not bad [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First, I hope this will help someone thinking about purchasing this item. I have 40 years of using trimmers and mainly have used Echo. I was given a simple WORX trimmer 4 years ago, and it was not bad. I like the idea of not having to mess with mixing the fuel. So gave WORX a change with their Nitro trimmer. If you are are not strong in the arms, this might not be for you. So far so good. Based on that and my dealing with the on-line support, I would purchase this item. Hopefully in 5 years, I will feel the same. Two negatives. First, the instructions could be better in my opinion. Second, it took 35 minutes and 22 seconds to chat with a rep.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bcarrot from Plenty of power. Very powerful. Just like gas but more torque. The product manual is horrible. No instructions on how to change the trimmer line or disassemble. Your instructional pictures are horrible. Would appreciate a parts list for the trimmer line, trimmer head, etc.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelly59 from Powerful [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m in shock how powerful this is for being a battery instead of gas. The battery lasted doing my entire yard which isn’t small. It was extremely well made and heavy I love the fact I can buy other stuff that will fit on it. The assembly was very easy to understand which is definitely a bonus for me. It came with a charger that charged quickly. You can adjust the handle for your comfort and the string is strong I didn’t have to replace any broken strings so far. I was always hesitant on anything battery operated but this has exceeded my expectations. This will be from now on the product I will purchase attachments from.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gadget Man from Awesome Tree, Bush, and Grass Trimmer! If Luke Skywalker couldn’t use his light saber for yardwork, this is what he would use! “Not as clumsy or random as a blaster, an elegant tool for a more civilized age.” I’ve been using a 26 and 31 cc gas powered attachment capable trimmer systems for 2 decades, and have loved the versatility. Originally started using these attachment systems so I wouldn’t have the expense and maintenance of several gas motors to maintain on some attachments that might be used infrequently. I have a Blower/Leaf Vacuum/Mulch-er, Pole Saw, Extension Shaft, Hedge Trimmer, 2 curved shaft edge trimmers, and now a Straight shaft edge trimmer. I almost recently bought a STIHL Kombi Power head but then when I saw this for almost 100 less and I was familiar with the performance Worx from using the Hydroshot I bought a few years ago, I figured it was worth trying (Worx also has a longer Warranty). Pro’s 5 Year Warranty! ; Appears very well made/designed tool, Kudos to Worx for standing behind their well made product095 trimmer line; I’ve noticed this gauge line doesn’t break as easily as the.08 line I’ve been using for years. Has a power level indicator “On the Tool”, for when your spare batteries may not have an indicator. If you live somewhere with restrictions on gas power “Ozone Alert days” at times. I would think since this is battery powered it would be excluded and you could still work. Quieter than using a Gas (attachment capable) Power head. You likely won’t bother everyone if your house and both your neighbors houses when you use this. Some tools like the Pole saw and/or Hedge Trimmer you might find you lift the motor closer to your head/ears (than when using a grass string trimmer) to reach spots, using this Battery operated motor is much quieter than the gas heads I’ve used. When using the Hedge trimmer I can actually hear the scissor action of the blades something I couldn’t hear when I was using a gas powered head. The attachment capable tools (like chain saw and hedge trimmer) give you more reach than using comparable tool only, (can also add an extension pole section) sometimes reducing or eliminating the need for a ladder. I have a dedicated electric pole saw (with motor and oil reservoir at saw end) but much prefer using the lighter weight pole saw attachment on this instead, it is lighter at far end (where it matters) since the motor is on the base and the saw at the other end. An added benefit is since it’s just the saw and oil reservoir at the end it can get into spots easier and doesn’t get hung up in the tree as easily. No cord to deal with, when compared to plug in pole saws or hedge trimmers. When you take your finger off the throttle trigger you have “Complete Silence!” With a gas trimmer your motor is still running and only your tool stops spinning/moving, Batteries are compatible with other Worx tools I have (I have Worx Hydroshot, and Worx Brushless Drill) Cons (None of these would prevent me from purchasing this again, I feel that Worx has the best tool in this category right now!): So much quieter than gas, if Spouse is inside, you may not receive the credit for your efforts as they may not know you are working! Eco Mode sometimes times out and must be reselected, This can happen when working with the Hedge Trimmer or Pole saw and you the set tool down to take a break, stand back to decide where more cutting needed, repositioning tool, etc. (it can easily be re-engaged, it would be nice if it didn’t timeout or reset (had memory) unless you were changing batteries, if Eco Mode utilized a physical switch instead of a lighted button, that issue wouldn’t happen). When working with the Hedge trimmer it would sometimes be nice to have a second index hole 90 degrees offset from the existing one, using the existing index hole the Hedge trimmer teeth are perpendicular to ground, great for trimming the side of the bushes but if you have a long run to do along the top of a series of bushes you have to rotate the entire tool and your safety and trigger controls are then rotated as well (it’s workable but sometimes feels a bit awkward). Not sure if this is a con or a strength, the Index hole on the Worx power head is farther in (towards motor) than on my Ryobi gas heads (where index hole is right near the end of Ryobi power head shaft), suspect that allows Worx to make the connection stronger? All tools fit and engage “button pop-out” except for my Trimmer Plus Blower/Vac attachment. That tool is fairly short but also very light being that it’s mostly plastic, perhaps Worx could supply a short adapter piece to allow that attachment to fit? General Observations: If you are used to gas it can take a little bit of learning curve to get use to not having to have “a certain amount of noise/ RPM” to do the same work you did with your gas tool. I initially went through my first set of batteries quicker when I first used this Worx string trimming. This Ntitro 40V appears to have an awesome amount of low end torque (usable power produced at a relatively low RPM). The shape of the twisted line Worx Supplied works well at a lower RPM as well. I have discovered I don’t have to throttle it up as much as I did with my Gas trimmer heads, infact I have been able to do everything I wanted to do while running at partial throttle in ECO Mode on this tool, and the battery run time is longer while running it that way. Running attachments like the Pole Saw and Hedge Trimmer head do not deplete battery power nearly as fast as when using the String Trimmer. Main reason I figure is when using the grass string trimmer you have it throttled to some degree almost all the time, when you are using the pole saw or the hedge trimmer I am sometimes stopping, stepping back looking at where I need to trim more, removing/picking up cut branches, repositioning the pole saw in another spot, etc. I have 2 three amp batteries and they last a very long time when using either the pole saw or the hedge trimmer, they are also a little lighter for reaching higher spots. Observations from other reviews: Some have commented having difficulty with engaging (attaching) attachments, I didn’t think I experienced this but have been using similar system (only gas powered) for 2 decades. Since I read this I noticed when I attach attachments, if I feel any resistance (pushing tool into power head) I rotate the attachment back and forth slightly to get the square shaft of the attachment to properly line up and engage with the square receptacle in the power head till it slides in easily (it should not be difficult). I also noticed since the index hole is deeper the legacy (non Worx) attachments sometimes have stickers near the end (that would need to be inserted into the Worx Driveshare sleeve) the sticker may hang up or need to be removed. I didn’t even realize I did “jiggled/rotated attachment slightly” until after I read people experiencing issues and then analyzed my own process, hopefully this info can be helpful to others. Some have commented about availability of the Power Head on it’s own because they already have a String Trimmer head (I understand, I now have three String Trimmer heads!). I have found having extra String Trimmer heads are not the worst thing, it can be rather convenient (to have at least one extra) that way if you are in middle of trimming and you run out of line you can just grab your extra String Trimmer head that you already have stringed up and swap it out and immediately keep trimming. Then when you have a rainy day you can take your empty head into garage/basement and restring it as you have time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BuddahChief from This thing is a beast At 6’6″ I strongly recommend using some sort of strap, connection point already installed. Running this beast at full throttle will drain those batteries in about 15 minutes, and in those 15 minutes you will decimate. The tool is solid and comfortable, after trimming up my yard I never once felt like it was bending or buckling and the trigger felt firm. Mine also came with about 20 ft. of line pre-spooled (that I suggest you re-spool yourself)

Worx 56V Cordless Blower Review
Worx offers a solid homeowners blower with the Turbine56V. it’s light with good ergonomics. But it’s loud and doesn’t have what we consider a true Turbo mode. even so, it’s a great value.
They are back and better than ever! Alright, well they are at least just as good as ever. We’re talking about the spotlights of each of the cordless blowers that took part in our huge cordless blower shootout back in August. We had 16 blowers in the ring competing for king of the wind. Events included ergonomics, air volume, wind speed, power, design, battery life, and more. It was a lot of work putting all those tools through their paces, but the result was well worth it. We’ve highlighted about half of the contestants with their very own reviews since then. Today, we’ll be talking about the Worx 56V cordless blower.
Positec Tool Corporation, owner of the Worx brand, was originally an OEM manufacturer founded in 1994. It launched Worx a decade later and brought in Tom Duncan, an executive well-acquainted with the tool industry, to be President and CEO. It seems like a good move in retrospect. Now the tools are sold by many big retailers, and Worx has even received some tool innovation awards. Has all that good OPE juju been imputed to the Worx blower? We’re about to find out!
Worx 56V Cordless Blower Features
Motor, Battery, and Power
The Worx 56V cordless blower is just one of five models from Worx. This one represents the top model and features a brushless motor. We like these for their higher efficiency, lower operating temperature, lower maintenance, and generally longer life. Brushless motors are also the foundation of Smart electronics, that is, motors and batteries that communicate to optimize performance and guard against thermal overload.
56V is the highest nominal voltage Worx offers. But if you’ve been reading along – or you’re already wicked smaht – you know that nominal voltage only tells part of the story of a battery’s power. Although many manufacturers trying to impress us with higher and higher voltage levels, we’ve seen 20V batteries outwork 60V batteries. How is that? Because you can only get a real sense of the work a battery can do by knowing its watt-hours. Its formula is volts x amps x hours. Most manufacturers print amp-hours on their batteries. You can find the watt-hours by multiplying the nominal voltage x amp-hours. By this measure, the Worx Turbine56V Cordless Leaf Blower, with its 2.0 Ah battery, can do 112 watt-hours of work. That places it 15th out of 16 blowers in terms of power.
We’ll quickly compare gas- and battery-powered blowers later, but suffice it to say that the battery type needs to wring every bit of efficiency from its design to approach its gas counterpart. Manufacturers increasingly design blowers with inline, rear intake fans that reduce to accomplish this. This Worx blower has just such a design, as did 9 others in the shootout.
Variable Speed and Cruise Control
The Worx Turbine56V Cordless Leaf Blower has a variable speed dial that allows the user to modulate speed. That’s important because sometimes too much airspeed/volume just moves the mess around. Think of trying to blow clippings from a sidewalk onto a grass patch without putting the mess in the street.
A cruise control function eases the fatigue on the user’s hand, especially during long jobs and extended use. Set the speed and forget it. As battery-operated blowers try to edge (pun!) into Professional/commercial usage, features like this help build their case.
In the shootout, we mentioned that the Worx has no Turbo function, but the manufacturer’s claims contradict this. The issue – and feature – needs some qualification. We consider a true Turbo function to be a temporary boost of power over and above a blower’s Wide Open Throttle (WOT). As it stands, the Worx’s Turbo function is WOT and not a short burst. It’s possible to turn the dial to Turbo and leave it there.
In any event, at full strength, the Worx 56V cordless blower pumps out 125 MPH and 465 CFM.
Other Notable Features
Although it would be cool if the turbine you see through the transparent orange thorax of the blower actually moved, it’s non-functional and decorative only. But hey, it looks pretty slick. Worx’s Hyper-Stream air nozzle concentrates the airstream to strike what it thinks is the right balance between speed and volume.
The whole package weighs in at 8.1 pounds – the lightest of the group of 16. Now that’s an auspicious start!
If you’ve been following along, you’ll know that we size up a tool for subjective things like feel and finish first. We don’t want a lack a familiarity to translate to a poor rating – it might just be different to us. This takes time and use. Then we’ll move to objective measures like power, wind speed, efficiency, and so on. Doing this allows us to report just how well it can work and how much you’ll like using it.
Light Your Candle
Several of the shootout’s competitors – including the Worx – suffered from a slightly irritating feel in the hand. The cause was tool plastic or rubber overmold seam that created a small ridge that rubbed the palm. A glove would prevent the irritation but we had to deduct a bit for this issue since it made it, well, a little hard to handle.
Hear We Go
On balance, battery-powered blowers are easier on the ears than their gas-powered counterparts. That’s good since more communities are instituting noise restrictions that affect OPE equipment. As a result, some lawncare Pros are compelled to supplement their work with them, even if they can’t pack the same punch. But even within the battery-powered group, decibel output varies significantly. Our shootout’s 16 blowers produced a range of 82 – 95 dB(A). The Worx 56V cordless blower cranked out 92 for a second place finish. Unfortunately, this is an event where you want to place last! It’s a loud blower.
Despite any marketing FOCUS on a high MPH versus a high CFM, the only way to objectively measure a blower’s strength is with Newton Force. Newtons allow a true comparison by taking both MPH and CFM into account in their proportion. The Worx Turbine56V Cordless Leaf Blower measures 7th out of 16 in MPH, 11th in CFM, but at Wide Open Throttle, places 10th in the pack as measured by Newton Force.
WORX WG184E Grass Trimmer 40V UK
Could the Worx cut it as a Pro level blower? By way of comparison, the best backpack blowers can reach about 600 CFM and 200 MPH, or 40 Newtons. Not only is that well above the Worx’s capabilities; it’s above the capabilities of the most powerful battery-powered blower in this shootout. So the Worx is solidly in the consumer category, but that’s ok – it never made claims otherwise.
The Bottom Line
When the debris settled, the Worx 56V cordless blower placed 9th out of our 16 cordless blowers. Even with the deduction for the slightly irritating grip, it had the best overall ergonomics, it was the lightest, and with a fairly low price tag, it had the 3rd highest value rating. Not too shabby. It struggled due to a high decibel output (being the second loudest) and it had what we consider a pseudo-turbo mode that’s really just Wide Open Throttle.
Keep an eye on the Worx brand – it has a solid offering and a penchant for innovative tools. If the company offered a shovel, we’d dig it! Until then we can use its blower.

WORX WG591 Turbine 56V Cordless Battery-Powered Leaf Blower
The Worx Turbine 56V Cordless Leaf Blower is surprisingly powerful for a cordless model, but the battery life simply isn’t suited for large jobs—at most, it can clear a small driveway or porch.
WORX WG591 Turbine 56V Cordless Battery-Powered Leaf Blower
We purchased the Worx Turbine 56V Leaf Blower so our writer could put it to the test. Keep reading for our full product review.
Electric lawn care tools like the Worx Turbine 56V Cordless Leaf Blower are emerging as must-haves for those who maintain their yards. These eco-friendly models are surpassing their gas-powered equivalents for ease-of-use reasons. So we put the Worx Turbine 56V Cordless Leaf Blower to work in the fall to see if it has enough power to efficiently clear a lawn of leaves and debris. After several hours of testing, here are our thoughts on this cordless leaf blower.
Setup: As easy as it gets
The Worx Turbine 56V Leaf Blower arrives in five pieces: the body, the blower tube, the nozzle, the battery, and the charger. Putting it together proved to be a simple task, even for someone with limited power tool experience. All we had to do was push the two blower tube pieces together and then snapped them into place on the leaf blower’s main body. The whole process took two minutes.
From there, we charged up the 56V lithium battery, which simply slides into place on the charger. It takes 90 minutes to charge completely, and it’s important to note that it won’t charge if the ambient temperature is less than freezing. The manual explains that charging at under 32 F can damage the battery, so we opted to charge it inside, rather than in the barn or garage. Once the battery was charged, we clicked it into place at the end of the lead blower body, and we were ready to go.
Design: Easy to handle
One of the Worx leaf blower’s major selling points is that it weighs just 8 pounds (many of its parts are plastic, making it lightweight), so it’s easy for any homeowner to handle. We could wield the leaf blower comfortably in one hand and are confident that most homeowners can comfortably hold this leaf blower thanks to its ergonomic design. The tool is well-balanced, too—it stayed level to the ground when picked up, and it takes little effort to angle the blower tube downward.
When using the Worx Turbine Leaf Blower, it was easy to adjust the speed with one hand. You use your thumb to control the multi-speeds. However, when on its turbo setting, we needed two hands to aim the nozzle accurately.
A common complaint about leaf blowers is that the turbine fan on the back of the machine can suck up clothing if held too close to your body, which was not an issue with the Worx model. We were able to easily pass it from hand to hand without the fan grabbing at loose clothing.
Once the job is complete, there’s a key-hole shaped cutout on the back of the motor housing that allows you to hang the unit on the wall using a hook or bolt.
Performance: Powerful turbo setting
We were impressed with the performance of this battery-powered machine. The variable speed control allowed us to adjust the air speed from 60 to 125 miles per hour, which was ideal for moving different debris types.
We started blowing dry leaves off a 25-foot driveway and completed the task in around 10 minutes on low to medium speeds. Our next task was removing wet leaves and debris from flower beds. This job required higher speeds and took a bit longer.
The turbo boost mode is powerful enough to move just about any debris, including small rocks. However, it’s important to note that turbo is just an extra-high speed on this tool, whereas a traditional turbo setting on a leaf blower provides a temporary boost of power.
The turbo boost mode is powerful enough to move just about any debris, including small rocks.
Our only real complaint about the Worx Turbine 56V Leaf Blower’s performance is that we wished this model had an interchangeable flat nozzle. The included Hyper-Stream air nozzle works well in most situations, but we would have benefited from a more targeted stream of air when we were removing debris from a garden bed.
Battery Life: Extremely limiting
The Worx Turbine 56V Leaf Blower falls flat in terms of battery life. After fully charging the battery, we set a timer and turned on the machine. After around 12 minutes of constant use, the air stream started weakening, then it shut off. During that period, the blower was on high or turbo for about 6 of those minutes. We found that you can get a little more runtime if you keep the machine on low. Even on low, you’re still only looking at 20 or so minutes of runtime per charge. You may only have enough time to clear a small driveway or deck. It certainly wasn’t sufficient for a 2-acre property.
The Worx Turbine 56V Leaf Blower falls flat in terms of battery life
If short battery life affects the flow of your work too much, you could keep a backup battery handy, but a WORX WA3555 56V Replacement Battery costs a whopping 125. The silver lining is that Worx batteries are interchangeable in the brand’s various tools, so it may be a worthwhile investment if you own other Worx products.

Noise Level: On the noisy side
Usually, electric power tools are significantly quieter than gas models. In this case, the Worx Leaf Blower is still reasonably noisy, operating at 75 decibels. For comparison, gas-powered lawnmowers and leaf blowers are typically 80 to 85 decibels, so this model is only marginally quieter.
This leaf blower isn’t so loud that you need ear protection, but there’s no way you could have a conversation over it. If you’re looking for a leaf blower that won’t disturb your sleeping family, this model isn’t it.
Price: Middle of the line
Leaf blowers can range anywhere from 100 to 500 in price, and the Worx Turbine 56V Cordless Leaf Blower falls roughly in the middle at 200. This cost seems a little high for a machine that can only run for 20 minutes, but it’s also an average price for a cordless leaf blower of this capacity.
Worx WG591 Turbine 56V Cordless Leaf Blower vs. WORX WG520 Turbine 600 Electric Leaf Blower
If your yard is small enough, you might be better off with a corded electric leaf blower, such as the WORX WG520. This model is quite similar to the Worx WG591 Turbine 56V Cordless model, but because it stays plugged in while you work, battery life does not limit you. The WORX WG520 Turbine 600 Electric model weighs just 6 pounds and boasts air speeds up to 110mph. It has an 11.5’ electrical cord, and at only 60, it costs less than half as much as the cordless model.
Good tool for small jobs.
If you’re looking for a lightweight, powerful cordless leaf blower to help clear your driveway, patio, or another small area, the Worx WG591 Turbine 56V Cordless Leaf Blower is a reliable option. It can move all sorts of debris on its turbo setting, and the ergonomic design makes it more comfortable to use than many other leaf blowers. However, its major flaw is its short battery life, which only lasts for around 20 minutes per charge.
