Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AKC DIY Installation of Badge 5 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
With the help of my husband, I installed the Badge 5 1/2 HP to replace the old one of same model which has been used for the past I do not remember how many years.
Online order from Home Depot was very easy and it arrived on time well packaged.
We spent minimum amount of time in the installation as we purposely bought the same model for its durability and ease in installing it without having to alter the pipes and connections. It took a little more time in taking out the electrical wire from the old disposal and put it on the new one as it took some wriggling to successfully squeezing the wire into the tiny slot at the bottom of the new disposal. Also we did not follow the instructions by putting the gasket inside the drain outlet before we connect the pipe, instead we wrapped the gasket around the pipe, then insert it into the disposal drain hole, then screwed tight the metal plate, this way we did not have to cut short the pipe and had just enough room to fully insert the pipe into the drain hole. It worked, and no leakage.!!
Attached picture shows our achievement in this project.

Purchased this garbage disposal to replace the the Badger 5 that broke. Easy online purchase, great price, was delivered to my house within a couple of days. Installation was about an hour with regular home tools. Works great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WHTKNT24 Order with ease
To be honest, I purchased this unit, but have yet to install it. I am buying all the necessary equipment and appliances before doing the full kitchen remodel - to save money, etc. However, I did as much research on this unit as possible - comparing it to others more expensive, higher rated, etc. I felt that this one would best match my needs. I plan on buying the sink next and pre-installing the disposal so that I can take the time and while I can flip the sink over and work from the topside rather than trying to install it from below. As it is, I am pleased with my order, will know better once the entire kitchen is complete.

New Badger 5 disposal works fine; hopefully it will last 18 years like the same unit it replaced.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dextercat Broke in 11 months
I bought this little unit 11 months ago and already need to replace it. It doesn't work properly as it constantly backs up dirty water from sewage. Badger customer service told me they can not give me the refund, although it should be still under warranty. The only thing you can get is free home service to replace or fix malfunctioning parts. I am not going to buy anything from Badger brand again.
