What is a good shop vac to use?

well my old shop vac’s motor went bad and a new motor cost way more than it’s worth so I need a new one. I have a dust deputy so with that in mind can someone recommend a good one to me?

I have had good luck with a couple of the larger capacity(>5 gallon)/larger diameter hose models from either the blue or orange stores. Either name brand or store brand.

I would say the biggest one you can easily get filters for. I have a 6.5hp shop vac that works fine. I would recommend a cyclone or thein baffle or at the very least a pantyhose over the filter.
