Waste King L-8000 Features

What you get with the Waste King L-8000 Legend Series Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal is a machine that comes equipped with a 2800 RPM motor, stainless steel grinding components, heavy cast stainless steel swivel impellers complete with an anti-jam mechanism, the actual grinding chamber is made from glass nylon so there are no issues with corrosion, and a removable splash guard that means you can clean it without too many problems.

All of this adds up to it being the most powerful item of its kind on the market right now as well as it being one of the quietest, but perhaps one of the best features is that you are able to load more waste into it while it is in operation and this is clearly quite a clever addition that can make a huge difference to the user.

This particular Waste King garbage disposal series can easily be mounted and it is completely safe for septic tanks so there are no real safety issues for you to be concerned with. The product itself is relatively small as you are looking at sizes of around 9 x 9 x 14.2 inches and you will also find that it is very sturdy as is shown by its weight, which is around

the 15 pounds mark.

Possible Issues With The L-8000

When it comes to the negatives, then perhaps the opening could be slightly bigger than what it currently is, but of course it does mean that it is harder for things to enter it that you would rather didn't go in so this is more like a minor inconvenience. This does also mean that if something does go in, then you will need a small hand to retrieve it. Also, whilst the installation does tend to go quite well, some people may find it to be a bit difficult in tighter spaces especially if you have a two drain sink. Another negative is that the chrome ring that you get as part of the connector could be a bit better, but on the other hand these are easy enough to replace if you run into any problems and it is, yet again, just a minor problem that can easily be rectified. Overall, it is perhaps best to say that there is no major negative that you can pinpoint on this particular series of Waste King garbage disposal units as the problems listed above are rather picky to say the least.

Positive Aspects To The L8000 Series

First, this particular series is far more powerful than a number of others out there, but it is also extremely quiet, so both of these things are clear positives. Most people will also find that it is not too difficult to install this particular item and this does give it another advantage over several others on the market where you may struggle unless you have above average DIY skills. Its size is also a real positive as it is big enough without being too big at the same time so it can fit under sinks without too many problems even if you do have a deeper one in your kitchen. As was already mentioned, you also do not have to worry about corrosion due to what its interior is made out of so this particular Waste King garbage disposal unit will last you for quite some time before you have to think about possibly replacing it with whatever model is seen as being an upgrade.

      I had the privilege of installing a Waste King for our church. It works great and the installation was quite simple. Plus, it is quiet.
