I see one review that states this unit will not fit a cast iron sink. Has anyone else dealt with trying to install this on a cast iron sink?

I'm not a plumber but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't. Have you had problems with other garbage disposals fitting?

I'm not a plumber but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't. Have you had problems with other garbage disposals fitting?
It is installed in two pieces. First there's a tube piece that slips down through the hole in the sink, you put putty under this. Then there's a bracket that goes on the underside and basically pulls the tube insert piece down against the sink and pinches the putty to make a good watertight seal. Then the unit itself simply hangs off this mounting assembly. It's simple really. The only issue I can see is if your sink is somehow so thick that the tube insert piece is not long enough to poke through the sink so the bracket on the underside would be able to attach. But that would have to be a super thick sink. I've seen some cast iron sinks in the past and I don't think they are nearly that thick (they'd weigh a ton!). Read Less

Answer: 
I hooked it to a cast iron sink that was approximately 1/2 in thick or less. there is a flange that you can buy to fit a sink that is thicker. However i did not need to use it.

Answer: 
I've not installed it in a cast iron sink. However, the instructions do not point to a problem with this. The main issue is the thickness of the sink where the tail piece goes through (the drain hole.) Most tail pieces are long enough and have enough threads to accommodate a thick cast. Only thing I can think of that might not work is a really old sink, like a farmer's sink from the early 20th Read More

Only thing I can think of that might not work is a really old sink, like a farmer's sink from the early 20th century.
Measure the thickness and the length of threads (twist on the sleeve two or three turns, and measure between the sink side flange and the sleeve) on the tail piece. Remember to add a little for the plumbers putty around the flange. Compare to the thickness of the sink. If the tail piece measure is less than the estimated sink thickness you will need to buy a longer tail piece.
The disposal mounts to any standard diameter tail piece/drain. Read Less

Answer: 
found the answer:
If you are replacing an existing disposer there is no need to remove your sink flange. Simply use the Waste King 1 HP Disposer supplied splash guard and easily install the new unit. This splash guard lets you switch to a reliable Waste King 1 HP Disposer without spending additional time removing an existing sink flange.

Answer: 
It will not. Waste King Disposer and Insinkerator flanges are not compatible. You must mount with the flange that comes with the disposer

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Big Disappointment! I remodeled the kitchen and wanted to update the disposer while installing the new sink. I thought I was upgrading going from a 1/2 horse disposer to a 1.0 disposer, I was wrong! While it runs quiet and sounds powerful it does not grind up the garbage. I was trying grind up watermelon rind and it would not! Very disappointed! I will remove this one and install something that works better. It was a waste of money and time installing. September 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It's the King Quieter than expected (& much quieter than my old Insink*rator)and efficient. Very satisfied! September 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Waste King 1 HP So far so good a little maybe too strong for our needs I think but I was told was more durable through the years. September 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Disposer Very good quality and has plenty of power to grind up food. September 20, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Home Depot Test It's new. It is still working as expected. Seven more characters were required. August 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best customer service Had a problem 10 years later and they sent a new one, love this company. It's a work horse. I have one question why would you ever buy a different brand? August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product not great that it was broken. I really like my Legen Series 1.0 HP garbage disposal. It is very quiet and although it is really meant for commercial use it fit nicely under my sink and was easy to install April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lifetime warranty! Consumer Reports sugested! Bought this unit to replace leaking 1/3 hp Badger unit. Awesome quality & power! Easy 3 bolt mount system even for ammature DIY. Quieter than lower HP units. Doubles as wood chipper. LOL April 4, 2016
