Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by venisonman The Badger is a snap to install.
Installing the badger 100 1/3hp was very easy. Removal and install took less than an hour. At 89.00 dollars the value of this unit is very good. This was our third unit in twenty-one years. We have well water that contributes to unit failure via the can rusting through. I suppose a stainless unit may prevent this failure but I would just as soon have a fresh disposal every six to seven years. A stainless unit if it exists will probably be very costly anyway.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JatLA Don't forget to get putty
My old disposer quit working after 9 years.
I replaced with same model so I don't have to re-adjust fittings.
It had been 9 years so I forgot to what come with and what doesn't come with unit.
* Plug in cord doesn't come with unit, it's Okay I can re-use from old one or take from my junk appliance.
* Wire retainer doesn't come with it, my old one doesn't have it either and I can't find anything to substitute in my garage, I had to use zip tie.
* Sink putty didn't come with unit.
I re-use sink flange, otherwise I had to go back to HD to get just putty.
I waste new flange and gasket by reusing old flange.
I would be appreciate if small tube of patty came with it. most people need it anyway unless reusing same sink flange.
* One tip for installation.
Get scissor jack from your car's trunk to hold unit while installation.
It's so much easier than holding it with your knees or ask your wife to hold it.
* Also don't forget to punch out dishwasher connect pipe.
It was written in installation manual but I forgot to do so until I found out next day my wife used dishwasher.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cb77305 Badger 100 is the one for me
The only installation difficulty was having the strength - at 68 - to hold the unit up to the sink fitting long enough to engage the clamp ring. After three attempts I was finally able to engage all three tabs on the clamp ring. Next time - I'll likely be helping a friend - I will use a small scissors jack with a short length of 2x4. This will ease the strain on my arms. The unit I replaced - also a Badger 100 - developed a break in the seal around the shaft coming up from the motor to drive the base plate. Water started dripping from the bottom of the motor and eventually caused the motor to trip the GFCI. The Badger 100 is very strong - has no trouble dealing with anything I put into it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pharoeprince Great for price
I ordered this product because I've had good experiences with Badger products before. I must say it exceeds my expectatins. We just moved into a new home that did not have a garbage disposal. This product has more than suited our needs and we are extremely happy with it. It is very quiet compared to disposals we've had in the past and it just gets the job done.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MissMJ Reliable product
This is my 2nd one which was replaced only due to a kitchen remodel and it was suggested that I replace the older model since it was 10 years old. It was still working fine even though I chose to replace it. I live in a house with just 2 people so it does not get overly hard usage. And I am sensitive about what I put in it based on experiences in a previous house with a garbage disposal. I do not put in egg shells, rinds from lemons/oranges, etc. or an abundance of peels from apples. All 3 of those items broke a disposal (or the dishwasher - a random egg shell was transferred into the electrical panel of the dishwasher and shorted it out) in a previous house.

Installed the Badger 100 disposal and it works great! Just remember to pound out the drain line plug inside the unit as I forgot and had to re-assemble. I think the manufacturer should have a tag on the unit to remind those inept people like me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OddDoc Easy replacement for DIYer
This was a replacement for an older Insinkerator that died of old age. Replacement was relatively easy considering one has to work in a confined cabinet space and lift it into position. Nonetheless, the installation was successful on the first attempt and has been in service without a problem
