Worx WG547E 20V Turbine Cordless Leaf Blower review

An efficient, but basic, cordless leaf blower

Our rating 
4.0 out of 5 star rating 4.0

In a nutshell

This WORX WG547E 20V cordless leaf blower doesn’t come with bells-and-whistles, but is a good reliable option, especially if you already have WORX PowerShare tools in your shed. It features just two speeds and has a decent run time of up to 20 minutes if used on the lower setting, with a nifty one hour charge time. Part of the Worx 20V cordless tool system, the battery and charger are compatible across the range, and it comes with a three year warranty.

What’s the WORX WG547E 20V turbine cordless leaf blower like?

This cordless leaf blower weighs the same as the Makita DUB186Z, but as it isn’t as compact, feels marginally more cumbersome to use around the garden – the position of the battery, which is at the end of the body balances it in such a way it seems to add to the overall heft. The wide nozzle means it’s harder to reach into smaller spaces or awkward corners, too, but it does corral leaves as you would hope. The 2AH 20V battery delivers adequate power to cope with dry and wet leaves – ranging from 24-33m/sec air speed, which is like the Stiga SAB 100AE, although that model is considerably cheaper. It has two speeds, but the lowest setting generates a moderate airflow useful for a general tidy up, while the higher speed provides enough power to shift stubborn, compacted wet leaves. Surprisingly for WORX tools, it doesn’t have a soft-grip handle, in fact there is a seam in the plastic on the underside of the grip, which we found uncomfortable after using the blower for a while. The nozzle can be removed from the body, but once you’ve done that, its two sections can’t be separated for more efficient storage, which is frustrating as the nozzle is double the length of the body.

Who’s the WORX WG547E 20V turbine cordless leaf blower most useful for?

This is ideal for those with a medium or large garden, thanks to the fast charge which means you don’t have to wait long before you can use it again. If you already own WORX PowerShare cordless tools, it makes sense to add this to your collection and save the cost of buying a battery and charger.

Is the WORX WG547E 20V turbine cordless leaf blower good value for money?

This is a good, basic model, but as it’s in the mid price range of the blowers we tested, we felt it could have a few more features – a battery level light, a soft grip handle and the nozzle separating into the two sections it initially comes in would all be helpful. On the other hand, it’s part of the WORX PowerShare range, which includes over 140 tools, it has a three year warranty, a fast charge and a decent run time.
However, in the end we felt that if you don’t already own WORX PowerShare tools, this might not represent the best value for money in comparison to other blowers we tested.
