    Installed less than one year, main bearing gone already. Have had 3 disposers over 20 years and this was the least reliable of the 3. Called the warranty folks and they actually asked me if I used it correctly? Are you kidding me?

    This is the third Badger unit I've owned. We've been in the house 17 yrs. The first unit, a Badger 5 lasted 11-12 years before needing replacement after the casing sprang a leak. I think that's pretty reasonable performance. Replaced with another Badger 5 and that one, however, only lasted about 5 years before another leak. I would have tried another, more expensive brand, but am loath to spend the extra time and effort retrofitting the plumbing as the Badgers all seem to maintain the exact same plumbing configuration over time. I upgraded to the 900 this time and I'll keep my fingers crossed it holds up a little better than the last one. It has a 3 year warranty as opposed to a 2 year on the 500 model. The bright side is that if you're replacing an existing Badger, the install likely won't take much more than 30-60 minutes. Maybe less if you decide not to replace the stainless steel collar in the sink. It's a pretty easy do it yourself job if you are at least a little handy.

    Installation was a breeze because I had a male friend do it. He said it was easy. It has a lot of power, fixed the leak problem and works better than the previous disposal. I highly recommend.

    This is a replacement purchase and have not owned it long enough to know whether it will be better than the prior one. The prior one was the same make but only 1/2 hp and it didn't last long so hopefully 3/4 hp one will last longer.

    My new Badger 900 replaced the old Badger 5. The 3/4 HP motor is much smoother and quieter than the old 1/2 HP motor. Installation was tricky but not due to the unit, just the location under the sink.

    This morning I realized that our old Badger 5 Plus had started to leak. Knowing that I would not be fixing it today, I looked for a replacement.Seeing that the measurements of the Badger 900 lined up with the one I had, I went with it to minimize the amount of work I had to put in.It all came down to a few easy steps.- unplug the Badger 5 Plus- loosen the two screws for the drain- disconnect it from the sink- move the power cable over to the new one- connect it to the sink (since it is a direct replacement, I did not bother installing the new pieces in the sink, but used what was left behind from the Badger 5 Plus. I am fairly certain that they use the same hardware also for other models.)- screw the drain back on- plug the power back inAll in all it probably took me 10 minutes.

    I'm not a handy man by all means, however installing it was easy.Don't pay anyone to install it, you can do it yourself.

    I replaced an old Badger 5 unit with the Badger 900 since it was exactly the same size unit. The only problem was the 900 unit comes with a discharge tube that when mounted goes down. I decided to replace the supplied tube with a new straight discharge tube instead of adding more piping to accommodate a curve required in the piping with the curved tube. This would depend on your current piping and preference.

    I have always picked out Badger disposals and always had a leak failure within 3yrs. I kept thinking that it was just a single bad disposal but it has been all of them. Time to change brands. Spend a little more and get a few more years? Sounds good to me!!!

    Replaced my leaking Badger 5 5/8 HP disposer with this Badger 900 3/4 HP unit. Same physical dimensions so it slipped right in with no pipe modifications needed. Chose this unit primarily for that reason. Was thinking about going for the 3/4 HP Evolution unit (longer warranty), but I didn't want to do any plumbing modifications (body is wider). Runs just as "quiet" as the one I replaced. Hopefully this will last 7 or more years like the previous one did.

    I upgraded from the Badger 1 (1/3 HP) to this model (3/4 HP). It works significantly better and is so far able to grind much more (as expected). However, it is not very quiet. It does not seem to have much sound insulation if any. It is very serviceable but I would not call it a fancy garbage disposal.

    No power cord? Really? Install went well and was straight forward except for the power cord issue. Had to remove it from my old one and wire the new one. What other home appliance comes with no power cord? Puzzling. That said everything else works well and it is quieter than expected. Happy enough with it so far.

    I read a lot of reviews before replacing my Badger 5 that came with the house. The 900 provides more horsepower and I decided it was worth it for 40ish extra bucks. I stuck with Badger because I didn't want to adjust any of the existing plumbing. The Badger 900 was EXACT form fit of what the Badger 5 was. I used the existing Badger 5 bracket and extrusion pipe. The complete install took about 30 minutes. I'll post more on performance later, but I expect a few years out of this. I've always had Badgers in my house, so I'm not concerned at all with how it will perform. I'd definitely recommend this if you are replacing an existing Badger product.

    We installed a new Badger 9 3/4hp when we moved in - 2 1/2 years later, it died. After renovating the pantry we installed another one - 2 1/2 years later, that just died as well !Extremely unimpressed, we will not buy another one - KitchenAid or Whirlpool next.

    Product is somewhat heavy. The best way is to have a small hydrolic jack under it to hold it in place without tiring your arms or somebody else's arms. Plus two people would be difficult to fit under the sink, unless of course, you have the no cabinets around you to get in the way. It took about 1.5 hours from start taking the old one out and to install the new product.Good Luck

    3/4 HP makes a huge difference vs 1/2. Replaced a builder grade GE unit and this Badger model (made by In-Sink-Erator) is much better all around. Install required re-positioning the drain pipe and installing a new elbow to align - about two hours. Pleased with instructions and, overall, I would recommend at the under $150 price point. (I paid $130 with a coupon).

    Most of the reviews state that this install requires 2 people, but I did it with just myself. It took less than 45 minutes to install. I was replacing a previous unit.

    Everyone knows this disposal is AOK for the price. It can be tricky to complete the final installation because it's so heavy for one hand. We tried for a little bit and then decided to use our car's jack. This worked great to get it to the proper position before we twisted it on. I would highly recommend this!

    I bought this to replace an existing Badger 1 model. I'm guessing it was original to the house. This went in with no problems. I did it by myself in a little more than 30 minutes. Make sure you have wire nuts if you are hard wiring the new one in or use the old ones as the are not included in the new disposer.

    We had a Kenmore disposal which failed and began leaking out the bottom. I looked on Home Depot's website and purchase this one on line as it was the closest match. Fortunately it was a perfect match and lined up exactly to the Kenmore and replacement was quick and easy!

    Badger 900 proved easy to swap out replacing a internally rusted Badger 5. Used a screwdriver to pry off the dishwasher hose after loosening the clamp. Pluming was easy since the size was an exact match. A heat gun softened the old Plummer putty on the sink portion. Screwdriver helped remove the snap ring, and that collar came off easily. Swapped the cord off the old unit and installed on the new. Put rope of putty under collar, and put towel in sink and placed new unit on collar to hold in place while installing new snap ring. Tightened screws to pull into place, and put new unit up and locked into place with a few taps of the hammer. Finished by re attaching the pipes. These with water showed no leaks. Plugged cord into wall outlet, turned on water, switch on, unit runs nicely! All done in about 35 minutes.

    I had the Badger 1 1/3HP...It had a 1 year warranty and lasted 3 years, with moderate to heavy use.The install for the Badger 900 was straight forward and the instructions were clear and easy to understand. Only took me about 45 minutes, with the only other plumbing experience of refreshing a toilet's flush mechanism, which was a pain in the, ya know. This was easy.I gave it an overall good rating because that is what it is. B if you can shell out money for others, go for it, if you want something better than the super cheap ones...go for this.

    I purchased this unit today and it took me a while to put it in because I had never done it before but after I got it in, works great so far. We'll see if it lasts as long as my previous one which just now started to leak after 12 years but still ran.

    I'm using this disposer to replace one that isn't that old, but rusted inside because it didn't have stainless grinding parts.This disposer is much quieter than the in store display suggested. Running without anything to grind up, it is just a loud hum.

    Replaced my GE 1/2 HP with new Badger 900 3/4 hp since I needed it right away, couldn't wait for shipping for original. Should have waited...Had to change my piping under sink, which was no big deal, but unit was so heavy to try to install just right so that it clips on to the holder, it was very hard. Not like bolting it. Had to have neighbor help, and he even had a hard time, and he replaces them all the time! Also do not like the rubber catch in it. My eating utensils keep falling into it. The only way to replace the rubber is to "unlock" it again from underneath! It is much quieter than my old one though. Hopefully it will last, but I don't really care for it. If it goes bad, I won't even replace with a new one. Rather do without one...
