Charlotte, NC – This season, the new WORX® Nitro 80V Brushless Backpack Leaf Blower, enables homeowners with larger lawns, as well as commercial landscapers managing medium-sized properties, to remove leaves and other yard debris with a maximum level of cordless power and efficiency. The premium blower features the new WORX Base Camp portable/transferable power system, high-efficiency brushless motor and sonic turbine fan technology.
Base Camp, a removable power pack that holds four 20V 5.0Ah Power Share PRO batteries, highlights the entry of WORX into the 80V battery platform. This innovative power source drives the blower, charges all four batteries with an included cord and can be used to power other WORX 80V tools, such as the new WORX Nitro 80V Self Propelled 21 in. Lawnmower. Each of Base Camp’s easy-to-remove batteries also can be used in more than 75 other 20V, 40V or 80V WORX lawn and garden, DIY tools and lifestyle products.
The backpack blower’s sonic turbine fan technology delivers a maximum air volume of 800 CFM at speeds up to 150 mph to lift and drive stubborn leaves and debris, even when damp. This action is enhanced by dual intakes that pull in additional air for greater volume output and blowing-power. The blower’s Newton rating, which combines air speed and volume to measure overall blowing force, is 22N on Turbo mode and 16N on High mode.
The 80V backpack leaf blower also is representative of the WORX Nitro line of performance-driven outdoor power equipment, engineered with brushless motors and high-capacity, high-performance batteries to run longer and work harder.
The backpack blower is equipped with a maintenance-free brushless motor for gas-like power and performance. This hi-tech motor is controlled electronically, rather than with carbon brushes. Therefore, it transfers power more efficiently and runs cooler with less friction and heat build-up than brushed motors. This maximizes battery energy and runtime, while providing smooth, reliable operation and extended tool life.
Power Share PRO batteries provide improved power protection and runtime through an intelligent battery management system with cell-cooling technology. Each battery’s cell is wrapped in thermoplastic to dissipate heat and maximize power and performance.
A variable air control nozzle provides the right amount of air volume and speed for leaf blowing over large areas or in tighter spaces. Sliding the nozzle forward into volume mode provides high-capacity airflow to round-up the most leaves, faster. Sliding the nozzle backward into high-speed mode concentrates and accelerates the air stream to disengage and collect wet or embedded leaves. Turbo mode also can be selected by holding down the trigger to add an extra push to move extra-stubborn debris, like sand on rough pavement.
WORX 80V Backpack Blower WG572_6.jpgThe user-friendly blower weighs 23.6 lbs., including batteries. The blower is highly maneuverable due to its backpack design, and will run continuously for more than 3½ hrs. on the low setting. Its decibel rating is 83 dB, well below the noise level of gas-operated models. Padded adjustable shoulder straps and cinch-tied chest and waist straps secure the backpack blower and stabilize its weight.
The eco-friendly blower is virtually maintenance free. There’s no gas can to fill, oil to dispense or hard starts. No tune-ups or power cords in tow.
Included with the WORX Nitro 80V Brushless Backpack Leaf Blower are four 20V Power Share PRO 5.0Ah MAX lithium batteries, Base Camp (WA3774) and a 4-port 5-hr. charger. The blower is covered by the WORX five -year limited warranty.
