I bought the can crusher for my boyfriend who goes through a lot of cans. :) He mounted it on the wall right above the recycle bin and it works great! We put the cans in, crush them and they're in the bin, no mess no fuss. The only issue is that when they fall toeards the crushing part or you just toss the can in, you have to make sure that it falls the right way to properly crush it. If it falls incorrectly you have to stick your hand in the sticky mess to adjust the can. Also, I haven't yet figured out how I'm gonna clean it. Other wise, I think it was a great gift and he has a lot of fun crushing the cans and thank goodness he is picking up after himself too!

I researched metal and composite plastic can crushers and wanted something that was more efficient than stomping cans with my feet. The single can crushers that crush cans vertically are usually cheaper or higher quality, but I decided I wanted something with an auto-feed type shute. The Dial Industries M92 Can Ram aluminum can crusher satisfies all of my needs.

Pros:
- Fast, efficient, shute-fed operation
- Large lever arm makes for easy crushing
- Cans drop at the bottom into a bucket or bag of your choice
- Easy to mount and assemble
- Strong, solid feel
- Cans crush to a very small profile
- Will crush a 16oz can if done singularly

Cons:
- Crushing mechanism starts off crushing at an angle
- Can can pop up if there aren't enough cans in the shute

If the can crusher worked 100% of the time, I would give it 5 stars, but the speed you get from being able to crush multiple cans is worth the occasional missed can, making it faster than any single crusher out there.

Overall, it works better than I suspected and I'm satisfied with it for the $20 I spent.

I just recieved my crusher in the mail. I put it together and was quite excited to use it. I installed it on a bare stud (no drywall) in the basement and was dissappointed to realize that the hopper relies on the support of a wall behind it and does not fasten to the crusher correctly if simply screwed to a stud. The hopper is still functional though. Also, I expected to pull down on the lever to crush cans but the crusher actually operates when you push the handle up. It's not really a problem. It just feels wierd. The only REAL problem with the crusher that I have found so far is that the slot that the crushed can drops through is too large and about 50% of the time, the can crushes a small amount and then slips through the slot diagonally. Bottom line: the thing works.....kinda. If I had it to do over, I probably would have purchased a different crusher.

Worked very well for crushing multiple cans at one time. And if you read the instructions, it would tell you that if you bent the sides of the cans a bit before crushing them it WILL prolong the life of the product.

Works way (WAY) better than lining your cans up on the floor and stomping them. Here's the problem, and the easy solution:

The cans drop straight down from the crusher, so if you mount the crusher flush against the wall, the container you are dropping your cans into needs to also be flush against the wall. If your dropping your cans into a round trash can, this is a problem; many of your cans will end up on the floor.

A little ingenuity offers a free and simple addition to solve this problem, but there's more way than one.

One solution is to take a scrap piece of lumber at least two inches thick to mount between the wall and the crusher. A couple inches is probably all you need to get the can to fall into the container. But I have a better trick.

What I did was took a flap from a cardboard box and made a chute. I took the lowest mounting screw out of the crusher, slide the box top flap between the wall and the crusher and screwed the mounting screw through the top center of the flap. Then I drilled two small holes through both sides of the crusher and the sides of the box flap and ran zip ties (screws may stick out too far and block the can) through to secure the box flap to the crusher and angle it outward from the bottom. Now my cans drop perfectly into the container.

Occasionally the cans will get turned upright in the hopper. Its a little inconvenient, but still way better than when they fall over on the floor before you stomp them and you have to bend over and set them back up.

This is a great crusher,after using the one,that crushes one at
a time,this is a breeze.90% of the time the cans fall in order.
The other 10% is no big thing.After I fill a 13 gallon bag(which
doesn't take long,since I drink beer,like it's going out of style)
I give them to people,who turns them into cash.
I also want to add,that this product does not work well with the
Coors Beer can,it's an odd ball size and jams a lot.Glad I don't
like Coors.

What a great item. It works like a charm, with two minor issues. When there are 10 cans in, sometimes the top one will pop out. The other is that sometimes the last two cans will pop up and you have to stick your hand in to lay them flat again. With that being said - I crushed thirty pounds of cans in a matter of hours. If you go thru a lot of cans this is the can crusher for you.
