Information From the Manufacturer
The WORX TRIVAC Deluxe is a 3-in-1 compact blower, mulcher, and yard vacuum all in one. The WG502 brings three functions together in one compact, lightweight machine with a 2-stage mulching system with shredder blade and all-metal impeller. The WORX TRIVAC is lightweight and easy to use. At 8.6 pounds, the WORX TRIVAC weighs less than a gallon of milk. In fact, it is the only blower/vac actually designed to be used with only one hand. With its wrap-around soft grip handle, blowing off your driveway or vacuuming leaves around the patio are almost effortless. With the TRIVAC WG502, there is no hassle with changing large bulky tubes when you want to change from a blower to a vac. With the flip of a switch, it can easily go from blower to vac. The TRIVAC Deluxe has a metal impeller blade which increases the mulch ratio to 18:1. The metal impeller is also heavier duty against solid debris objects. The convenient WORX large-capacity collector bag holds up to 10 gallons of mulch (equal to 100 gallons of dry leaves) and is made of special breathable nylon fabric to maximize airflow. The bag’s proprietary quick-connect coupler makes emptying and replacing it a snap. Unlike other standard blower/vacs, the WORX TRIVAC comes with a unique angled tube to easily vacuum leaves from under decks or play equipment. The blower tube on the Deluxe has a built-in airflow regulator which allows the adjustment of the blower speed to the job. As a blower, the WORX TRIVAC Deluxe produces an airspeed of over 210 mph, strong enough for even the toughest wet leaves and debris. As a yard vac, its powerful 12 amp motor produces enough suction to vacuum 14 gallons of dry leaves in less than a minute. The Deluxe and its 2-stage mulching system with all-metal impeller condenses leaves and debris to one-eighteenth of their original size – perfect for spreading as ground cover for the flower bed or compost for the garden. Electric blower and vacuum can blow away debris then easily change to vacuuming in seconds
