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.

Size Name: 1 Disposal Verified Purchase
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.

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 decent, but 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 endamame 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.
My friends were very impressed, honor was returned to my Condo, and now i have an unstoppable Garbage disposal that is just waiting to destroy anything i can throw at it.
Thank you, Amazon. And thank you, Waste King for making a disposal that makes WAR with meat bones in a manner most fitting.
