This Can Pactor can crusher by Commercial Zone is one of the few multi-position can crushers and certainly the most popular one. It can be mounted to practically any place, whether it’s a wall, table, ground, sill or other place. This can be done thanks to a multi position mounting mechanism of the Can Pactor. This can crusher can also be used flat without any mounting at all, so that makes it also a portable can crusher. This is useful if you do not store all your cans in a single place and mostly use the crusher in a kitchen, but also sometimes want to take it outside for an outdoor gathering. With the Can Pactor you will not need to dismount the crusher each time you want to use it in another place.

Can Pactor not only can be mounted to both horizontal and vertical surfaces but also has a very simple installation mechanism that allow fast and painless mounting. The crushing unit has got 3 mounting holes and you simply need to use three screws for mounting this tool. The Can Pactor does not come with mounting screws so they need to be bought separately.

Also the ability to mount it to both horizontal and vertical positions gives a real advantage for this tool as there aren’t practically any crushers that can work equally well when mounted both horizontally and vertically.
