    1 HP = 746 Watts. 120V x 15A = 1800W (roughly). So, only about 2.4HP are even possible out of a regular 15A outlet. 2400W and 3.2HP for a 20A outlet. 4HP is marketing BS, unless it uses 220/240V. Nope. I checked, and it's 120V.

    You wouldn't say that if you had it hooked it up to your autosuck...

    Peak HP is the initial draw of current that lasts for just a split second. Any longer and it would blow the circuit breaker. Max usable HP from a vacuum is about 2 hp on a 15 amp breaker. Notice the lights dim when you turn on vacuum with peak 4 horsepower rating, or when a heavy draw appliance first kicks on. That is the initial draw of current or maximum peak horsepower drawn to start the motor turning.

    I agree, it's a BS measurement unless if you wanted to know if that when you turned the vacuum on if it would cause other things on the circuit to suffer a drop in current or voltage briefly (your computer might not like it but Ironbadge's autosuck wouldn't miss a beat)...
