Buffalo Tools CNCRSH can crusher is simple to use can crusher that will compress aluminum cans down to 1 inch size. This can crusher will work with cans up to 12 oz size. 16 oz or other larger sized can will not fit into the crusher. This aluminum can crusher is made from a durable steel so you can expect increased durability of this tools compared to cheaper plastic can crushers.
The construction of the tool is very simple. The body, crushing mechanism and leveler are all made out of a steel. The body of the tool is in metallic grey color and the leveler as well as hinges are in a black color. This crusher is not the best looking can crusher we have seen but it certainly does its job and will crush your 12 oz aluminum soda or beer cans easily. It is a perfect tool to store into garage, pantry or even in open, outdoor areas. However, if you consider to use the tool outdoors be aware that it might start to rust after some time of usage, because paint can be easily scraped of the crusher, especially around the moving parts.
The mounting of CNCRSH Deluxe can crusher is very easy, there are four mounting holes on the crusher and it can be mounted on a vertical surface such as a wall. This tool comes with four screws that allows to mount it to a wood surface. If you do not have a sturdy wall to mount the crusher to, you can use a thicker plank and screw crusher to the plank and place it next to a wall so the crusher stays in a vertical position. This way you will not need to damage the wall but still can use the can crusher for aluminum can compression.
The crushing process with CNCRSH Deluxe is very simple and easy, even kids can use this tool. Large handle helps to ease the crushing process and at the end of the handle there is a soft rubber cushion grip that gives you more comfort when compressing cans. As previously mentioned, this tool will compress 12 oz aluminum cans in about 1 inch height. This will save a lot of space in your garbage bag and so you can take a lot more cans to the recycling facility in one time. Another small but useful feature that Buffalo Tools CNCRSH has is a bottle opener at the bottom of the crusher.
To ensure that the can crusher works properly even after multiple months and years of usage, we recommend to apply lubrication oil to the hinges on the crushing mechanism from time to time depending on how much you use the crusher. For moderate to heavy usage we recommend to oil the hinges at least one time every week or two. This will ensure that the crushing mechanism works properly, does not make squeaking noise and do no wear out after short time of usage.
