Exception product. Cut by trash by 75%
Running a home business, I have a lot of trash and I exceed the town trash limits in terms of number of trash bags for the garbage collectors. I averaged 10 42 gallon trash bags (sometimes up to 14bags) a week and the town limit is 5 bags. My option was to pay $4 per extra bag or get a trash compactor. I got the Gladiator and what a terrific investment! Now my trash is average 3 bags, tops 4 bags. I am very pleased. Easy to use and it works.

By Jeff Elkins
As my first trash compactor ever I think this is perfect. I've reduced my weekly trash output roughly 1/3, by compacting the trash. Instead of paying more to the City for an additional trash bin, I'm able to fit all our weekly trash in the single bin. After using it a month I wish it had more horsepower, so I could further reduce the trash, but its adequate for my purposes: smashes most everything into neat compact rectangles that now fit nicely within the trash bin that goes to the curb. I even have some extra space to start working away on the clutter. I use it with the Whirlpool trash compactor bags which have held up nicely. Its not too noisey and seems to be made to withstand our frequent open/shut routine of throwing things away almost hourly. I would recommend this for "normal" household trash use, which is all I use it for. Based on my experience thus far I'm not sure it could handle "shop" trash .

Arrived in good shape, need to assemble casters
One lost shipment, replacement required I contact shipper(s) for deliver. Confusing tracking info posted. Arrived in good shape, need to assemble casters. Caster lock mounting holes incorrect for one location of lock ( i. e. under unit not on the side). Unit does not compress as much as I would like but still useful. Over all a good purchase.
