I took apart a new "6.5" hp Shop Vac recently (custom project), and was pretty amazed at how weak (not robust) the design and motors are. Plastic anywhere they can, no circuit breaker (they just use a piece of solder as a "fuseable link"). How these guys get away charging so much for so little was amazing. Also to say these are 6.5 Hp is an out right lie:
1 hp = 746 watts .'.
6.5 hp = 4849 watts
4849 watts/120 volts = 40.4amps
Household circuit is rated at 15-20amps, and by design allows for a brief spike in current as the motors voltage starts from near 0. NEVER does the "power" peak at 6.5 hp. ShopVac is staring a lawsuit in the face claming this type of garbage.

I own this and it works pretty well. Although the attachment storage caddy leaves a bit to be desired.

I would recommend Ridgid or bust, but the warranty left me hanging

I second the Ridgid. I've used multiple Shop Vac vacuums for years. Recently tried a couple Ridgid vac's and I fine them to be built much better.

and the large one can usually be purchased from HD for $40 around black Friday... I bought several and gave them away as gifts... They are fantastic at clearing out any stopped drains in the house.. Has saved me several Plumber Calls...

They don't warranty at the store, have to send pics. Just disassemble and clean the motor very good otherwise they will deny it

I own this one and a $55 model on sale (I paid more) and they both work great.

How could you plug a 6.5 hp unit into the wall? This is a blatant lie. that's over 4000 Watts??? You would need a stove or dryer 220 dedicated circuit...........

I own a smaller ShopVac and although I didn't spend as much for one of the higher tier versions, I can agree with the majority of the comments here and say that it left much to be desired. I'm in the Ryobi 18v and the Milwaukee M18 ecosystems and am now trying to decide which of the two to go with for their vacuum system. The Ryobi 18v 6 gallon looks good for the price. Waiting for a sale.

I'd go ridgid or craftsman. Same company builds both.

Peak hp is based on it's locked rotor (inrush) wattage. With that said inrush is usually about 5 to 8 times running current. I agree it's total BS but it's marketing and unfortunately true.
