Worx Nitro 40V Power Share Leafjet Blower
Worx redefines versatility with a unique Leafjet blower design
Worx endeavored to deliver the most wanted functions of a leaf blower. According to Worx, the solution is the Nitro 40V Leafjet Blower. Though it looks a bit unorthodox, the design combines an in-line brushless motor and variable air control nozzle to give you a dual function blower that is the most powerful blower Worx has ever offered.
What does Worx say about the Leafjet blower?
When choosing a blower, homeowners may want high speed (mph) or high volume of air to remove leaves and debris. That’s why we developed the new WORX Nitro 40V Leafjet blower to achieve both. By simply sliding the variable air control nozzle forward or backward, homeowners can choose which feature is best for their conditions.

What’s the big deal?
For us, the big deal revolves around the design of the Worx Leafjet Blower. Granted, it looks a bit strange, but Worx claims this design allows a maximum volume of air of 620 cfm and air to be pumped out at a rate of 165 mph. It uses two 20V batteries (in series with 40V) to power the in-line brushless motor. This keeps the weight under 7 lbs, even with the batteries connected.
But the Worx Leafjet Blower also works a little differently than any other blower currently available on the market. You can switch between high-speed and high-volume air modes by pressing the orange release button on the side of the hose and sliding the variable air control nozzle forward or backward. The high-speed mode works well for removing leaves and debris from thicker, grassier areas. The high-volume mode seems ideal for clearing away hardscapes and larger areas.
Worx developed the Leafjet blower with a D-handle to make the entire experience more comfortable with prolonged use. The handle also features rubberized handles, and Worx has placed the speed control on the handle for convenient setting of the power. A turbo button in the handle lets you use the maximum performance that the Leafjet has to offer.

The Worx Nitro 40V Power Share Leafjet blower is available in one of two configurations. As a mere tool, you can pick it up for $ 199.99. Or, you can pick up the kit for just $ 20 ($ 219.99). The latter seems like the better value proposition for this tool. You get two 4.0Ah batteries and even a 4A dual charger. In any case, Worx supports this blower with a 5-year guarantee.
