Lightweight, Compact and Easy to Use

man blowing debris from a deckA Swiss Army knife of blowers, the Worx Air offers an interesting concept – combining a featherlight, battery powered unit with a wide array of attachments to cover many different cleaning, sweeping, inflating or drying tasks around your home.

All looks great on paper or in commercials – but what about the reality?

Let’s start with the positives – the super-light frame and compact size make this sweeper very easy to carry and manipulate, plus there is no messing with an electric cord, you can forget about outlets and use it anywhere you want. The noise level is also okay.

Various Attachments for All Kinds of Tasks

The attachments and additional nozzles are easy to swap and their functions range from a traditional removal of leaves and debris to cleaning corners, window frames, boats or computer keyboards, drying windows and cars or even inflating mattresses, inflatable pools or boats (see the video above).

Also, an extension hose is present to provide more flexibility for some of the tasks.

Using the attachments

Low Power

And now let’s discuss the drawbacks – firstly, the power is low, with 120 mph of air speed and only 80 CFM it’s one of the weakest blowers we reviewed.

It still does the job on hard, dry surfaces, blowing leaves, grass clippings, dust or other debris from sidewalks, decks, patios or garage – but don’t expect it to handle anything tougher like damp stuff, gutters or leaves from grass.

Short Battery Working Time

And the battery system isn’t ideal neither – users report only 10-15 minutes of work on a single charge. And taking into account the 3-hour recharge time, you would probably have to buy a spare battery to get the job done in one session.

Conclusion:  The WORX WG545.1 might be a good choice if you need a lightweight blower only for light jobs, don’t want to mess with an electric cord and would make a good use of the additional attachments. Otherwise there are better cordless sweepers available – with more power and longer battery running time.

Also, if you need to blow leaves from grass, collect them into piles or perform other medium-difficulty tasks, a more powerful unit would be certainly better.

Frequently asked questions:

How should I treat the battery to ensure maximum lifetime?

Always store the batteries inside your house in reasonable temperatures – never leave them on direct sun or outdoors during winter!

Some users also recommend to remove battery from unit when you are finished (and recharge it even if it’s not fully discharged), otherwise the sweeper might stop working.

Is a charger included?

Yes, a charger and one battery are included.

Are there any accessories I should buy?

You’ll probably need a spare battery as the working time is quite low.

Is there any maintenance needed?

No, the motor is an enclosed unit so no maintenance is required. Just ensure a proper care to the battery (see above) and clean the machine from debris occasionally.
