About Worx Air

If you just watched the infomercial for the Worx Air electric blower, you’re probably interested in finding out if its 120mph air speed really can help you find every kind of dirt in every space. In fact, you likely also want to know if it really can create “clean zones” on sidewalks in just 2 minutes, patios in 3 minutes, and garages in 6 minutes.

But does the Worx Air really help make cleanup faster, easier, and more efficient? Is it worth your hard-earned money? Let’s blow the dust off the facts and see what they have to say.

Worx Air Blower Details

Although it’s rather obvious, the Worx Air website claims that 85% of the dirt in your home is tracked in from the outside. To help with this, the Worx Air electric blower claims to deliver 120mph of maximum air speed to create a clean zone around the exterior of your home in just minutes. In addition, the Worx Air also features a 20V (also available in a 32V version) MaxLithium battery so you won’t have to worry about cords slowing you down, while the lightweight and compact design can help reduce fatigue.

The Worx Air also features 8 attachments that you can use inside and outside of your home, including:

  • An angled long tube that allows you to access hard to reach areas, and is best suited for cleaning decks and patios. Also includes a detail brush that you can use to dust narrow areas.
  • A short tube that’s ideal for tight areas that the long tube can’t access. Also comes with several attachments to make it even more useful.
  • An inflator nozzle and deflation cover that allow you to quickly inflate and deflate objects.
  • A dust brush, which helps you clean areas of your home susceptible to dirt and debris buildup, such as corners and windowsills.
  • A wide nozzle attachment that allows you to easily dry flat surfaces and sweep wider areas than the angled long tube.
  • Can also purchase a gutter cleaning kit separately, which has an 11-foot reach that helps you avoid climbing ladders when cleaning your gutters.

In addition to these attachments, the Worx Air also includes a 20V MaxLithium battery (claimed to remain charged for up to a year if not used), a 20V Energy-Star certified battery charger, and an accessory bag.

Worx Air Pricing & Refund Policy

The 20V Worx Air is priced at three payments of $33.33 or one single payment of $99.99, while the 32V version is priced at three payments of $49.99 or one single payment of $149.97.

If you’d prefer to not purchase directly through the manufacturer, the Worx Air is also available at Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, Sears, and Amazon.com, as well as many other independent retailers.

All Worx Air electric blowers purchased directly through the manufacturer come with a 30-day money back guarantee, less shipping and handling charges, in addition to a 3-year limited warranty.

What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About the Worx Air Blower?

Overall, it appears that the Worx Air Blower has a mostly positive online customer reputation, as long as you fully understand its limitations. We’ll talk more about why this is important in the Bottom Line section.

With this in mind, the Worx Air currently has an average customer rating of 3.3 stars on company’s website, with the most common complaint citing lack of power—in fact, one reviewer claimed that a hair dryer might provide more power than the Worx Air. In addition to this, the most common complaint relates to poor battery life, and that you’ll only have 15-20 minute run time before needing to recharge (which take 3 hours).

Elsewhere online, it appears that the Worx Air has a slightly better overall reputation, although the most common complaints continue to be related to lack of power and short battery life.

What’s the Bottom Line About the Work Air?

Whether it’s the pollen of spring, the dry dust and bugs of summer, or the leaves of fall, the Worx Air infomercial really does make it seem like this is the last electric blower you’ll ever need to own. But is this really the case, and is it worth $100? Perhaps, as long as you fully understand it’s intended use. Here’s why:

First, it’s fairly clear that the Worx Air’s claimed 120mph air speed was calculated directly at the nozzle, which quickly slows down after exiting. Even in the Worx Air promo video, you can see that there was little air speed about 10 feet past the nozzle. Numerous customer reviews we found during our research backed up this assertion as well. But why is this important?

This is important because, even though the Worx Air looks like a leaf blower—and based on the promotional video and many of the product’s claims, you could be forgiven for thinking so—it’s not. Instead, it’s simply intended to blow dry dirt and debris from porches, decks, and patios. In other words, if you’re planning to blow heavy and/or wet debris (mud, grass clippings, wet leaves, etc.) like you would with a traditional leaf blower, the Worx Air simply doesn’t have enough power to handle these duties. In short, the Worx Air is solely intended for light work around the house, and nothing more.

Instead, if you’re interested in purchasing the Worx Air or any other cordless electric blower, focus more on CFM (cubic feet per minute) than on air speed. This is because CFM is much more relevant to the amount of power a blower has, and will give you a better idea of the type and amount of debris it’s capable of moving around. And with just 80 CFM, the Worx Air is definitely on the lower end of the spectrum when compared to the competition. As such, unless you’ve been without rain for a while or don’t have much debris in your gutters, the gutter cleaning attachment probably won’t work very well.

When it comes to customer reviews, it appears that most consumers were pleased overall with their Worx Air purchase. Despite this, the most common complaints included lack of power and short run times (15-20 minutes at most). Also, while lithium-ion batteries represent good options for cordless yard tools, keep in mind that they’re notorious for reduced capacity after just one year, which means that your Worx Air will likely have even less operation time after this point. Most customers strongly recommended purchasing a second battery and always keeping it charged, especially if your yard is anything other than small.

Bottom line: If you think of the Worx Air as more of an “air sweeper” than a traditional blower, you may be more satisfied by its performance. However, most customers highly recommend purchasing a second battery and always keeping it charged, since the Worx Air has a very short run time and a long recharge time, which increases your cost even more.

  • Disappointing

    Purchased the combo leaf blower and weed eater. I think model numbers are WG 163 and WG 546. Tried to blow dry leaves from the front porch and part of the driveway using two fully charged batteries. The two together lasted a total of 20 minutes. I fell for all the advertising they do. It's made in China but I thought it would be a better product than this. I guess I'm stuck with it and hopefully I've learned my lesson.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Blower quits after 20 seconds, battery checks out at 19.3 volts.

    Worx cordless blower (WG545, SN# 201311030553) worked OK but runtime has decreasingly shortened. I checked the battery and it is still at 19.3 volts. What do I do in order to make it operational?

    I find the blower adequate for small jobs like blowing the leaves away from my doors and off my patio. They are light enough that my wife can do that herself if needed (which is often). The run time is long enough to clean my 90" driveway and patio at the same time. I bought two, one for upstairs decks and down stairs patios so I have two batteries if needed which is usually never. Light weight, easy to handle blower. I'm not trying to move 20 lbs of leaves over rough terrain, just concrete.

    Given all that I'd probably try a different brand if the weight is not too heavy and has a higher volume, higher voltage and cost close to this, but I would recommend if you are cleaning concrete patios and not cleaning an entire large yard.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Beware of Worx Products

    • By Mitchell,

    120 MPH, not efficient, especially with leaves when they start piling up. The last one I used until it died. Shop, shop, shop. I found 200 mph of old corded one I used met my expectations. Now, batteries are the fad. I have a Black and Decker 18 volt battery drill that does well. Worx products sell the attachments and suck. No pun intended.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Bought one for husband birthday and he let it charge for 12 hours and the battery only lasted 20 minutes. Returning it to company.

    What a waste of a lot of money! My husband ordered along with the trimmer, the bag collector, and trash can adapter. It's awkward and not easy to handle, made a complete mess when the bag blew off the trash can that was suppose to be collecting the leaves, gets clogged up and just made the job of cleaning up fall leaves a bigger chore than it needed to be. Too late to return, it's going to Good Will!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
