Originally, I wanted an ElectroGroom for my new barn. Sadly, I cannot afford the $600 price tag. Instead, I am researching shop vacs for the purpose. My horse is a Yak in the winter - in Virginia - so I suspect he'll be even, um, yackier when we move to Wyoming.
The electrogroom is a total of 3.0 hp with both motors running. This one is 5hp... wondering if that might be too much:
I like that it has a detachable leaf blower, handy for blowing out the barn aisle.
I want a bigger cannister vac as it'll be used as a shopvac is meant to, but I don't want to suck my entire horse into a too-strong vac :)
If you use a shopvac to groom your horse, what are you using and how do you like it?
