Just Purchased...Easy Install

by: Jimbo P

I just purchased and easily installed the new UCG1500 model. Previous GE compactor crapped out after 17 years...a good run in my book. These are solid, well made units. I was surprised to see that the old unit had a metal chain drive not a rubber belt.

Good? Maybe?

It took three months to receive this unit I assume due to COVID issues. Then after it got here I realized that it didn’t have the extra pack feature that my previous one had. This means that I now take out the trash more often. With that feature I only took it out o ce per week.

Poor Compacting

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Our old compactor did a great job (could keep pressure on trash for an extended period), but was loud and groaning. We would have kept the old Kenmore if we had known the poor compacting on the new one. We wasted a thousand dollars.

Love the color and the features.

I love the features. It is a beautiful unit. It doesn't compact as tight as the old one. But the unit is taller so it still holds just as much. Easy to install.

Great unit
