This heavy duty steel can crusher “C” by BIL is a strong single can crusher that can take cans up to 16 oz and compress them down to less than 1 inch (2.5 cm) size. Can crusher is made from a heavy duty steel material which provides durability and long lifetime of the tool. The construction of the crusher is powder coated to even prolong the lifetime of the tool. The powder coating also allows to use the crusher outdoors, so you don’t have to worry that metal parts will start to rust.
As mentioned the can crusher “C” will compress cans up to 16 oz in size and it will also crush smaller 12 oz cans without any problems. Today, when more and more nonstandard sized cans are made and standard 12 oz cans are becoming less common for soda and beer drinks, it is useful to have a can crusher that can take taller and slimmer cans up to 16 oz size.
BIL can crusher “C” is a vertical can crusher, so it must be mounted to a wall or other vertical surface. The crusher comes with all mounting hardware needed, so you can mount the unit to a wall. This can crusher is pretty narrow, just 4 inches wide, so it can be mounted to practically any space. The tool has got a nice look and comes in a white color, which in my opinion looks a lot more attractive than most other steel single can crushers in metallic gray and black colors. The design of the tool will fit in different interiors from your kitchen wall to school, office and other places.
The price of can crusher “C” is higher than for the basic steel single crusher models costing around 30 bucks, but with that price you get a decent built quality, durability and long lifetime of the tool, an attractive white design and very easy and comfortable to use crusher.
Can crusher “C” is very easy to operate as most single can crushers. Just pull up the leveler, insert a can into the opening and pull down the leveler to crush the can. Then take the compressed can out of the crusher and throw it into trash. What makes the crushing process even easier is the long handle this crusher has. It is equipped with a large 16 inch (40 cm) handle that has a soft, padded grip at the end that makes crushing aluminum cans fast and easy. The crusher can be used only to compress aluminum drink cans and is not suited for compressing steel or other material cans as they can damage the crusher. As with most steel single can crushers you will get an occasional can popping out of the crusher in the crushing process, so we suggests to squeeze the sides of the can in just a bit before inserting it into the crusher, because this will make the crushing process easier and will take some load off the crusher. After some time of usage the tool might start to stuck and make squeaking noise, so it is recommended to lube all moving parts of the crusher after it has been used for some time.
The size of the can crusher “C” is 7x3x4.6 inches (17.7×7.6×11.6 cm). The weight of the tool is 5 pounds (2.3 kg).
