The Waste King Legend 8000 1.0-horsepower disposal showcases an ultra-powerful motor, stainless steel grinding components, superior sound insulation, and a corrosion-proof grinding chamber for efficient, quiet, no-fuss waste disposal.

The Legend 8000 1.0-Horsepower Disposer
At a Glance:
  • 2,800 RPM permanent magnet motor
  • Stainless steel swivel impellers reduce jamming
  • Splash guard is removable and easy to clean
  • Sound insulated to reduce noise
  • Lifetime mechanical and corrosion warranties

The Legend 8000 offers more power per pound than the competition. View larger.

Experience a More Powerful Grind
Featuring an energy-efficient, high-speed, 2,800 RPM 'Vortex' permanent magnet motor, the Legend 8000 offers more power per pound than comparative disposers. This 1.0-horsepower motor will grind just about anything, and it requires 115 volts, 60 Hertz, and 7.0 current-amps to operate.

Jam-Free, Mess-Free Feeds
The Legend 8000 is a continuous-feed disposal, which means you can add waste while the unit runs. Stainless steel swivel impellers reduce jamming, and an easily removable splash guard makes it easy to clean.

Grinding Components Minimize Noise and Wear
Because the Legend 8000's grinding chamber is made of glass-filled nylon, you will never have to worry about corrosion. Also, the stainless steel grinding components are insulated, so you'll get the quietest grind possible.

Easy Installation; Works with Septic Tanks
The Waste King Legend 8000 includes a fast-and-easy mount system, with all the necessary hardware for no-hassle installation. The disposer is safe for properly sized septic tanks and comes with a 36-inch power cord.

Lifetime In-Home Service Warranty
The Waste King Legend 8000 is backed by a limited mechanical warranty. This means that if your disposal develops a material or mechanical defect within the lifetime of the original purchaser, it will be replaced in your home--free of charge. The disposer also comes with a lifetime warranty against corrosion.

Couldn't be happier with the purchase.
Here are some facts:

1. This unit replaced a Badger-1 disposal which had come with our house when we bought it new in 2004. I didn't even know what type we had until I took it out. We had been happy with the Badger but it eventually stopped working. Doing some research after-the-fact, I learn the Badger-1 only has a 1/3 hp motor and 1 year warranty. The Waste King L-8000 has a full 1 hp motor and a lifetime (non-transferable) warranty.

2. Though the Badger-1 only had 1/3 of the power of the L-8000, the Waste King was actually quieter. We didn't think either of them was loud, but the Waste King was even quieter.

3. There are basically two types of disposal mounts nowadays. If you have an existing disposal, the odds are nearly 100% that it's installed utilizing either a 3-bolt mount system or the EZ mount system. If you are planning to replace a disposal that required a 3-bolt mount system (such as the Badger-1) with a disposal that requires the EZ mount system (such as the Waste King) you will also need to purchase the following adapter kit: Anaheim Mfg Co 3 Bolt Mount Adapter Kit 3101.

* The above adapter kit is sold here on Amazon for less than $10 and is very easy to install. All you do is swap out two pieces that came with your EZ mount disposal with the two pieces in the kit. You will then be able to connect your new EZ mount disposal to a sink that contains 3-bolt mount hardware. On a scale of 1-10, I would say that the difficulty factor was a 1 or 2. Easy! Additionally, Anaheim Mfg Co (the company that makes the adapter kit) is the same company that manufactures Waste King disposals. So, everything fit perfectly and effortlessly.

Our Waste King 8000 replaced an Insinkerator Badger 5 that cracked and began leaking. This review is for people in the same situation, and it's written to help you get your do-it-yourself installation right the first time. I'll refer to your old Badger as the "ISE."

*** SUMMARY: Either buy the 3101, then throw it out the next day and do it all over again when you're dissatisfied with the appearance, or don't buy the 3101 and do it right the first time. ***

Your ISE was probably mounted with a 3-bolt mounting system. You'll be able to tell by looking at the point where the ISE meets the sink. If you see three long bolts pointing straight up and down, spread out evenly around the cylinder, then that's what you have. This Waste King model is an EZ-mount, which is a different kind of mount. So you have two choices.

First choice: order the "3101 ISE Adapter Kit," which allows an EZ-mount Waste King to attach to an existing 3-bolt mount. This is definitely the easiest solution. HOWEVER, a couple things to consider. One, in the process of removing the ISE, you'll probably twist the mount enough to cause the old plumber's putty to begin disintegrating. If you have any sort of perfectionist streak in you or personal pride about your handyman abilities, you'll want to go to the hardware store to get new plumber's putty (about $2), disassemble the mount, clean it, and then put it all back together with a new layer of putty. This is almost exactly the same amount of work as if you'd just removed the 3-bolt mount, thrown it away, and freshly mounted the Waste King. Two, if you use the existing 3-bolt system, then your sink drain's rim will continue to say "IN-SINK-ERATOR" even though you probably now hate that brand for manufacturing a Badger that failed after only a few years.

Quiet and fast. Has stopper that really works. Small bin makes accidents less likely, and I have not dropped any tableware in yet.
One thing that you must do. Before turning the lock ring in the final step of installation, don't forget to soap up the rubber gasket. If you don't, you will be sorry. It is not an option as implied by the instructions.

I have been using this product for almost 6 months now and it is great. After installation, I have taken its flawless performance for granted. It was substantially larger than the small wimpy disposal that came with our house, but also surprisingly quieter; more like the guttural growl of a menacing bulldog than a loud but harmless chihuahua.

A couple of pieces of advice - make sure it will fit under your sink (it barely fit under mine), and create an outlet to plug it into instead of trying to directly wire it since it comes with a plug you would have to otherwise cut out.

I replaced a piece of ISE Badger junk with this unit. When the ISE seized, the shaft seal went out, and it leaked internally. So I had no dishwasher unless I wanted to do the bucket brigade from below the disposer to the other side of the sink. Galvanized wetted parts plainly aren't the way to go for this service.

I had pretty well decided on the WK 3300 while researching / looking locally and then tried Amazon, finding it much cheaper. Since the WK 8000 was even cheaper, at the top of the Consumers Reports list, and Aneheim Mfg. offers a lifetime warranty (original purchaser), it was an obvious choice.

So I went the WK Direct / Cantex Trading route, with no problems. I ordered early on a Sunday morning; it arrived Wed. afternoon; and was running that nite. The paperwork says it came from Austin, TX. Included are both handwritten and printed notes that urge you to leave feedback at Amazon and contact them directly if you can't give 5 stars in every category; their staff receives bonus based on the feedback. Maybe when they shipped that customer the defective unit in early Sept., somebody at Cantex noticed the review, and has taken action to avoid a repeat.

EZ-mount: I was sure to get this, because I wanted the removable rubber baffle. (How else do you get the grunge off that thing?) It should be a simpler install for most people. Only concern is that the vibration will loosen the plastic locknut, but I guess the mfr. has looked at this. Anyway, it's accessible to tighten if it happens. Rubber gasket under the sink flange instead of messing with the plumber's putty - yea! Two-position locking ring (hold the unit up but let it swivel / locked in place) - yea!. The instructions implore you many times to be sure to get the lower cushion mount in right.
