It’s a common thing for most folks to think the motor is straining when the flow is restricted. Just wanted to offer a little clarification.

It might be worth noting that the same thing is not true for some shop vacuums.
Many vacuums depend on air flow through the system to cool the motor.
Not all, some have separate cooling flow, but the ones that don’t will fry the motor if operated with restricted flow.
