Does WORX TriVac Really Work?

This three-in-one gardening tool, they say, is compact and light at just 8.3 pounds.  And yet, it is a blower, mulcher and a powerful yard vac.  They claim to be the only blower/vac that can be operated with just one hand.  As a blower, the WORX TriVac has an airspeed of 210 mph, making it tough enough for even wet leaves and debris.  It’s wraparound soft grip handle allows blowing leaves off the driveway, or vacuuming leaves on the patio effortlessly.  With just the flip of a switch, they say, this product transforms from a blower to a vacuum, and with its unique angled tube leaves are easily vacuumed from under decks or play equipment.  The WORX TriVac claims to be quieter than most blower/vacs at less than 70 decibels and the WG500 shaver is more quiet than an electric shaver.

I am 66 and handicapped. I can not believe how well the WORX TRIVAC works! I eventually purchased the optional larger bore hose that goes perfectly on a 45 gal. trashcan with wheels, maiking the job so easy for me to operate. The original collection bag gets very heavy on the shoulder and so I had to empty it nore frequestly to be able to walk and blow/vac. NOW IT IS PERFECT (ALMOST).I love this thing, and the JAWSAW by WORX as well. I have half an acre of leaves and trees and no lawn…..now I am actually having fun and finishing quickly.

Yes - Great tool for average yardwork.

I highly recommend the Trivac. Does exactly what it is advertised to do. I bought the 32/55 gallon can attachment and it really cuts down on the emptying the bag time/routine. A possible, left hand handle would be nice, on front/top left side. A small set of wheels about 2-3 inches on the front of the vacuum tube might work for ease of rolling on the yard. All in all, good product at a good price.

Yes - Impeller is not an issue
5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars

I was very wary of purchasing this machine because of the reviews I read about the impeller being made of plastic. While I agree that a metal impeller would be ideal, I have to say that people are exaggerating the issue. Now I am not recommending that you go and try to suck up debris from your rock garden with the Worx Tri-Vac, but then I wouldn’t do that with a metal impeller either. I have had the Tri-Vac for about 8 months now and I have an Oak tree that drops acorns, tons of leaves, and small branches. None of these items have caused anything more than cosmetic damage to the impeller. I have been sloppy enough to take up a couple of small rocks too and other than the small scratches and dings on the impeller, no loss of function has been observed. The impeller is plastic, but it is very thick abs plastic. You would really have to be a fool to do significant damage to the tool. Also, I have had no problems with either the zipper or with taking the bag off of the unit. The only knocks I would have on this unit are that it gets very dusty and that the bag fills up quickly causing interruptions to empty it. I will be getting the attachment that fits over the garbage can to solve that problem as soon as I get off my butt to do it. If the impeller issue scares you, don’t believe the hype. This tool is good for light to moderate work consistently just don’t be dumb and try to grind down thick branches and rocks and you will have a tool that works for many years to come.

Yes - Perfect For The Patio

Absolutely the best tool for keeping the patio clean.The vacuum is more powerful than I expected,and the whole unit is very lightweight.One has to avoid sucking up larger stones though as the impeller is plastic and can be dammaged. Over all I love this tool.

The impeller/blower is plastic and rocks or hard debris will crack or break it. Cant imagine why they put a plastic impeller in such a device made to grind up leaves etc. Needs a steel impeller.

Yes - Good Product...not Perfect
4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars

It does what it says it can do (blow, mulch & vacuum). It doesn’t remove all the work from raking but it is a big improvement. It makes raking leaves a lot easier becaues you don’t have as much manual work. You still have to dump the vacuum bag frequently but still better than traditional rake, bend & bag. I would buy it again.
