Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyCustomer832 I love this trash compactor!
We are a family of 5 and we create a lot of garbage! Previously we'd easily fill our outdoor trash can to where the lid would be unable to close and we'd have additional bags next to it on trash day. After 4 days of having our gladiator, it is still not totally full and I have put absolutely everything in it except 1 glass bbq sauce bottle, 2 glass beer bottles and 1 wine bottle. I am not quite ready to put glass in it yet even though the directions say I can.
We keep the gladiator in the garage and have a very small waste receptacle in the kitchen. As we put items in the kitchen trash, I take it out to the gladiator. Needless to say, I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase!

It took a long time before I accumulated 1/2 bin full of compactable trash in order to actually compact the trash. Once done, it appeared to do the job nicely. I purchased it primarily to have less volume to take to our transfer station.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bubbie Glad I bought this
This is my first compactor. Over the holidays we had so much trash, I decided this might be the thing to try. My researched came up with this one and it had good reviews. When it arrived I was to say the least skeptical. Once I started to use it I couldn't believe how much space in my dumpster it saved. We keep it on our garage and just empty the inside trash can right into it. Super simple to operate and even though it's in the garage it is still very quiet.
The outside blend in with all my other cabinets in the garage and it hardly takes up any space. We are a large family of 6 and I have one bag of trash now per week.

I'm very happy with this compactor. This helps me keep on top of the added trash burden created by having a kidney dialysis member of the household.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by None I like it.
Bought this unit right after Christmas as my wife would not stop bugging me for a new one. Our old one was over thirty years old and the motor finally quit. When we got this one and tried it out for a couple of days, we were kind of not happy with it. But, now that we've had it for a couple of weeks, we really like it. It compacts a lot more then the old one. Thanks. Now where do I get the bags for it?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MatthewJR Works great in the kitchen too.
Instead of putting the wheels on we flipped the dolly that holds the wheels upside down and put some adhesive strips on it then set the compactor on top of it. This puts the top of the compactor right at counter top height and it looks fine in the kitchen over next to the other trash can. As for functionality, its a great compactor and we're down to taking our recycles out twice a month now instead of twice a week.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MTP2013 Good Product
I bought this compactor three weeks ago to place in the garage beside some floor cabinets. The previous comments that I reviewed seemed to be mostly positive and Home Depot's price for this unit was the cheapest that I found. I don't use it too often, but it seems to work very well. I have it on its castor frame so I'll be able to easily clean behind it. I had no problems with the little amount of assembly or operation. It's not loud or noisy for the garage. Overall, I'm very satisfied with it.
