low efficiency motor from a 6 gal/9 gal vac—very little airflow/suction & high pitched noise

the better motor—still equipped inside ridgid wd4070 4 gal vac & craftsman (emerson made), workshop & ridgid 12 gallon & larger vacs

this motor produces lots of airflow/suction & lower pitched sound

will this one fit any emerson 6 or 9 gallon shop vac:




x may be any # from 0-9 due to special promo models

Emerson makes proteam backpack vacuum.
Sears went belly up. Stanley at Walmart bought rights to Craftsman. Lowe's also sales Craftsman. Lowe's tools are kobalt. Wal Mart is hyper tuff.home Depot is Ryobi. I've also only seen rigid at home Depot.
Back to the point. Sears rights were sold. This lead retailors to diversify vacuums. If you carry too many skus it confuses the customer.
It's going to have weird things like this for a few more years until they build under a new model.
