That's 5hp potential in the unburned fuel at the electrical plant :-)

I have a large Rigid (ahem) and a 1gal ShopVac. Both have been for for years
although both are quite loud. The 1 gal sounds right for your application
though it's torquey enough to spin itself if you don't hold it.

Quiet costs. WAP makes a nice one.

You could always locate the vacuum remotely like  central vacuum system but
that's fancy...
