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.

So I know next to nothing about buying a garbage disposal, for the past ten years I’ve lived in huge cities and haven’t had any room (or necessity for that matter) to purchase one. Having recently bought a house, all that has changed. From dishwasher to washer to dryer to garbage disposal, I’m having to educate myself about them and purchase them with informed decision making skills. Yikes.

With the garbage disposal shopping, I quickly learned that the big brands are Waste King and Sinkerator and that those were the two best places to start. After going over several models and two trips to two separate best buys (who, by the way, really need to amp up their customer service model) I cheated and had my mom choose one for me. Sue me. So she chose this particular brand, and wow—it works really well, I can’t believe how easy it makes my life. I can put bones, and tough food products down the disposal, and it makes cooking really simple. Go figure.

Update: As an aside, I also learned from my research that the best way to clean my disposal is to use citric acid. Having previously had no idea what citric acid was used for, I decided to order some from Amazon, going with the brand my sister uses: Citric Acid Powder - Ultra Fine Pure Powdered Crystals - Natural Preservative Food Grade Quality (16 oz) and gave it a whirl after 3 months of using my disposal. I let the citric acid sit with some water in the disposal for about ten minutes, and then I let it run for a solid 2 minutes. I repeated the procedure a few times and after about 30 minutes—wow, all the leftover gunk and food was flushed out of the disposal, leaving it clean with a very mild citrus scent. I feel like I’m becoming a real DIY at home kind of guy.

I ordered this Waste King L-8000 to replace a wimpier 3/4hp model that had been installed for about 8 years.
The old model still worked and was a decent disposal, but it had recently committed a grievous error...
Once a week I host my friends for dinner, usually its pizza and beer and we watch a game, but during the summer months it turns to BBQ and assorted cooked meats. On one of these occasions, i tossed in a chicken drumstick and a few Buffalo wing bones, flicked on the disposal and waited for 30 seconds of god awful racket and grinding to destroy the refuse of our sumptuous feast. It had failed miserably... bone shards were visibly numerous, and the drumstick was practically whole! My friends immediately began hooting and hollering about how much of a sissy disposal i had (as only beer fueled friends can) and as you can imagine, I received quite a few Waste king links on Amazon shortly after from the aforementioned buddies.
In my shame and fury, i selected the 1 HP Waste King 8000 and ordered it immediately due to its good reviews and evidently unbridled power to destroy the scraps of my feedings without remorse.
I was not disappointed! The day after it was installed, we BBQ'd and kept every bone we flayed. I crammed in a dozen buffallo wings, half a cup of edamame shells and 4 chicken drumsticks to start and engaged the L-8000.
MADNESS!! The Good King ANNIHILATED the offering and screamed for more! MORE!!! Every bone, shell, scrap and morsel of gristle was fed into its angry maw as it howled in a frenzy of destruction! After it spun down, i checked the interior, nothing remained save a few paltry specks of gristle and the haunting smell of an Apex Predator.
