    We bought this inSinkerator - Badger 5 1/2hp disposer to replace an exact model we had for more than 10 years. The motor in the old one finally quit. All measurements of the new disposer fit the old one. Removing the old was a bit challenging but not overwhelming. (Save the power chord!!!) Working on the project by myself, it took about an hour. Without help, lifting the new disposer, keeping it in place, juggling the parts and tools are challenging ... but do-able. You will need plumber's putty. Keep the old power chord because it is not included. The new Badger 5 fits nicely under our sink. It is quiet. We are pleased with the purchase.

    I bought this as a replacement for my burnt out old disposer. There are lots of options out there but I decided to get this as it fits my family needs and the price is competitive enough. Overall, the installation process is straightforward as long as you also have the power cord kit. Just follow the instructions and you can't go wrong with it. My only challenge with this is when it comes to hooking it up and clamping it with 2 screw drivers or the tools that came with it. I think this may need 2 people to make it easier as it's quite heavy with just one hand trying to align the clamps while turning it. I hope in the future, products like this will have an easy way of screwing up the clamps. Because once it gets misaligned, you'll repeat the process. I have to take some breaks to relax my arms when doing this as it take me couple of re-tries to get it properly hooked up. But other than that, it works as expected. No complaints so far.

    This garbage disposal works great. It’s a little smaller than the one you might be replacing so make sure you have a long enough PVC pipe. My old one was pretty gross and needed to be replaced. This one was really easy to put in. I did it myself. It leaves a lot of room to put stuff under your sink because it’s not so gigantic

    This disposal surprised me! I’ve seen and heard many of them in my lifetime and this one is the quietest. It works beautifully and I’ve not had any problems with it. I’m still amazed at how quiet it is compared to others especially my last one.

    The part I purchased replaced an existing part from the same manufacturer. Proper fit guaranteed! No issues I've experienced after I've installed it, but... to hopefully spare any others pain and frustration working on this project PLEASE HEED the following: Old books ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS to hold the unit up while trying to lock it in place. 3+ hours I contorted myself until I figured that move out.

    There was a minor glitz in the electrical hookup with a plug and socket not being compatible, but the technician skillfully redid the wiring and everything works very well. He went the extra mile when he could have said--"that is your problem--good bye" and left us without an operating disposal.
