  • What buyers say about The Crusher, Pacific Precision Metals Aluminum Can Compactor

    I put them in the base with the rough side of the can facing the padding and it made a big difference in the amount of crushing of the can.

    If the cans pop out while you are in the middle of crushing, slow the speed down. Its not a race to see who can crush the fastest.

    I mounted it inside of the door to the basement, in order to protect the wall, after reading a few reviews.

    I have bought this can crushing machine many times at stores. If you have a lot of can drinkers in your house, it's a good idea to get a can crushing machine.

    I use teflon spray on the inside side walls of the compactor to keep the crushing mechanism running smoothly, and it is amazing how many crushed cans you can fit into a regular recycle bin.

    Common Questions


    Is it possible to use this without mounting it to a surface?


    It is almost impossible to crush the can if it is not dented a bit. I am very petite and not very strong, but I have no problem using the crusher on our countertop with a dented can.


    Is it possible that it can crush 16 oz cans?


    The arm doesn't raise high enough for a 16 oz can when mounted as instructed. You need to secure a piece of 2x4 behind the base to hold it up.


    Will this be able to crush 8 oz aluminum cans, like the slim Dr. pepper cans?


    I would bet the little slim cans would be a piece of cake, because we crush the large cans with ease.


    Cans of 24oz fit this machine?


    I don't drink 24s often but every now and again one of my drinks in in one will do a 24oz Can, you just need to crush the can a little before you put it in.


    I need a can crushing machine that can crush cans.


    It is not possible to design a manual can crushing machine to crush food cans.
