Lowes has a shop vac motor that fits on a five gallon bucket. (Shop-Vac Shop Vacuum Item #: 49940 | Model #: 6004511). It is a 6.5 amp motor. It does have good reviews on lowes' website. My question has anyone used this motor to make a bee vac using two 5 gallon buckets?
If no one has used it does anyone understand vac motors to know if a 6.5 amp would be a good size for a bee vac. I think this translates out to about .7 HP.
