The Shop Vac 4.0 HP models review is a review of the top three rated vacuums with this peak horsepower. Generally, as the HP power goes lower, the price of the unit is also less on average to the consumer. Another side effect of this is that the vacuum cannot stand up for heavy use over long periods of time. The reason being, is the motor will burn out do to the stress placed upon it. If you should have lots of water or debris to pick-up you may want to consider getting a vacuum with greater horsepower so you will not burn out the motor and have to purchase another unit.
