The fuses may be the original problem. I suggest wiring around those pesky troublemakers.
But an 8k winder shaker may not pull much more juice than an old 5k, and it can throw air further. That is important in winder shaker selection. Of course, you might have to miss an episode of "THE LOVE BOAT" , but that is prolly not a problem for you as you seem to have found the perfect "LOVE SHACK" anyway.
And remember these words young man:
"A fire extinguisher in hand is better than, well if there was a fire or something I guess".
Never forget it.
