Does this vac suck too much? :)
 
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?

I just bought one of the orange shopvacs from Walmart. I have the little 1 gallon sized one and it works just fine - but my horse does not get very hairy. I would check Walmart, Home Depot and lowes. You can find a nice one and save on shipping.
