    Default Electro Groom vx Rapid Groom Vacuums

    Has anyone here had the chance to use both of these machines? I am anxious to get a horse vacuum with shedding season upon us. The rapid groom seems like it would fit the bill, but I would consider getting the bigger (and less portable and more expensive) electro groom if it is far superior in cleaning ability. I keep my two horses at a boarding barn and expect that I will be sharing the vacuum with other boarders, so capacity of the dust bag might be an issue on the smaller vac. Opinions on either machine are welcome and appreciated. TIA

    There's a thread on here somewhere about using a $50 shop vac and getting the same results as a $400 equine vac.

    I've been thinking about that thread lately because my horse loves to roll.

    I was just going to say, my trainer went and bought a shop vac that can be hung on the wall and it works great! Not sure the price but definitely probably not as much as the horse specific ones.
