We have the same crusher, does and ok job, does toss out some bigger pieces but overall gets it done and easier than having to chop it up first and shove it down a garbage disposal crusher. We got a 3/4 inch drill press head and a shaft for a 1/2 inch drill to fit it on from a machinst webpage, now we can hook up a good drill and go much faster than that silly assed wheel that comes with it. I want to put an electric motor on ours but first have to find a wheel to fit the shaft.

Great idea with the 1/2 in drill! I'm not sure why I hadn't thought of that!

We had to get a drill press head big enough to fit it but would then fit on a 1/2 inch shank, all pretty cheap. Only concern is the weight on the shaft is probably going to make it start to wobble one day, but we plan on upgrading to maybe pulley wheels as a winter project. WVMJ
