    6HP - ha ha ha ha.... 1HP is about 745W. 6HP would draw around 6 x 745W = 4470W.

    That shop vac 6HP rating is the equivalent of when they had peak music power b/s for quoting insane audio amplifier power levels. i.e. total marketing/sales b/s.

    cheers,
    george.

    To add dont overlook start up amperage often start up surges will need 50% or more amperage.

    What's the story here? You have some fancy hardware for sure.

    How are you going to support the transmission?

    It's in a 40. I used an early 2F bell housing which has the ears. It's not going to be a hardcore off road 40. It's just for putzing around town.
