I purchased this model to replace a 10 year old GE when we installed new countertops/sinks. My cousin installed one in his new home and said it worked well and was very quiet. I used the electircal cord from the GE unit for the install. The installation took about 30 minutes. The most difficult part was getting the snap ring installed. I tried using the disposal to hold the sink flange in place but it wasn't heavy enough. I had my wife push down on the sink flange from above. This worked like a charm and the snap ring went in easily. I highly recommend this model.

I rated in Overall Rating and Quality only fair because the previous one,same brand and product started to leak from the motor casing.. It did not leak from water connections or any other place.
It started to leak about a couple of years after we bought it, and it would only leak a few drops occasionally. The under cabinet was always humid or wet. I checked for leaks several times with water faucets open and not a single drop was visible.. It was until I discovered the leak only happened when we operated the InSinkErator, And it happened accidentally because my wife operated the motor while I was checking for leaks, then I noticed it exactly on the backside, very difficult to find.
I will attach a couple of pictures so you can see for yourself.

Good for entry level

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

This is the product for someone who wants a budget friendly disposal without all the bells and whistles. Does exactly what you'd expect and has been problem free so far. Easy installation since I replaced an identical model that was about 15 years old. This is the main reason for going with this model...the other one lasted way longer than I expected. Overall, I recommend this brand and product.

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

I got this disposal because my daughter recently had to purchase one and got the same thing. It is so very quiet, you almost think it isn't doing anything. After 3 weeks, seems to work well. Just make sure that the person who installs it catches all the clips all around it and tighten well. This will prevent leaks.

Exact Model Replacement

By fbuss

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

Twenty-seven years ago, the construction company finished building my house and I moved in. The Badger 1 was the original equipment installation. It lasted the full 27 years until it finally succumbed to an internal leak. So replacement with the exact same model was straightforward. It is even quieter than the original. I can expect to never have to touch this again! Of course, it works great.

Louder than its predecessor

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

After 5 years of light service, the internal seals gave way. The replacement was a necessity but the new Insinkerator is much louder than the old one ever was. Still seems to meet the needs of our household.

Cost-effective and Reliable Product

By Jose157

from Kissimmee, FL, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

After using a previous Badger 1 Garbage Disposal for 15 years in our home, the disposal starting leaking from the bottom. We purchased another Badger 1 model and it fit perfectly. We re-used the existing sink brackets which sped up installation of the new disposal. Make sure you use a bucket or some other article on which you can rest the new disposal to make the re-wiring process a lot easier with two free hands. It was my first replacement and all went easily using the instructions provided. Make sure you do not forget to take the Model and Serial number labels and place them to the front of the disposal for future reference.

Seamless Upgrade

By EnolaPA

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

I recently replaced my counters, sink and prior InSinkErator. I had a lower powered InSinkErator in the past which worked fine for many years but recently began to lock up and was difficult to unjam. Since a minor kitchen remodel was in the works I decided to replace it. Looking forward to many good years with this new unit. Thank you for a quality product!

Good product, very happy with it overall, I don't "abuse " my garage disposer, I'm pretty conservative with it, if you stay away from the stuff they recommend you not shove down there and use common sense you should get many years out of it like we did.

The InSinkErator was installed for us so I cannot speak to the ease of installation, however the technician installed it fairly quickly without difficulty - it seemed to me. The unit takes care of all our disposal needs.

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

Was very glad to find this exact replacement for the same model that went bad after apparently many years of use in the house we acquired two years ago. Fit exactly to existing plumbing. Did not come with power cord and was somewhat difficult to salvage the cord from the unit that went bad. Otherwise replacement went well.

I like the brand and have been very satisfied with Badger products but this was the lowest HP I have owned. May be a bit lite on grinding. I would recommend at least a 1/2 HP model.

Good price and installation was quick. The instructions are extremely easy to follow. I wish that it was a bit quieter. It's a shame that it has to be so loud. It's not unbearable but could be bumped down a few decibels. We were on a budget and couldn't afford the pricier, quieter one. Overall it does a great job of moving the food.

I replaced an old Badger with this new one. I was surprised at just how easy it was to install. Disconnect the pipes, twist and the old one is out. Transfer the power cord from the old unit then do the opposite. Less than 15 minutes total. Wow!!!

Longevity

By Dan2840

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

My first Badger 1 disposal worked for 24 years. The only reason for replacement was a leak into the motor. Keep in mind that 25 years ago the parts were made of metal. I chose to replace it with the same Badger 1 which is now lighter due to resin housing et.al. It is a very quiet running disposal. I should be dead before I have to replace it with another. lol
