My DC is a 2 hp, does that give me much advantage over the 1 1/2?

You said earlier it was the HF DC you have. That is almost certainly not a true 2 HP, more likely 1.5. It’s a good bet that a 12” impeller would overload that motor (besides, it may not fit in the blower housing) but there was a thread here some time back where someone used an 11” (I think) Rikon impeller and seemed to be relatively satisfied with it. I searched a little and couldn’t find the thread, but maybe whoever it was will see this and chime in.
