ZING 7008 can crusher is one of the high end crushers which not only eases the crushing process a lot but also is very durable and a good looking tool. This can crusher is sold by a company called ZING and you can either buy a complete ZING can crushing kit, which includes a can crushing unit and a can collection barrel, or just the can crusher or barrel separately. ZING 7008 is a heavy duty can crusher that eases the crushing process significantly thanks to its mechanical design which features a long leveler and a strong crushing mechanism. This can crusher will compress aluminum cans up to 12 oz size and you can use it to crush those regular 12 oz beer and soda cans. Unfortunately it won’t work with cans in much larger than 12 oz size and cannot be used with 16 oz cans that is bit of a shame when looking at the high price of the crusher.
ZING 7008 can crusher is made from different materials. The body of the crusher is made from a heavy duty nylon material, which may seem weaker than the steel used on steel crushers, but actually is very strong and even more durable than the material of few cheaper steel can crushers. The advantage of this plastic material is that you can use the crusher also outdoors and be sure that it won’t start to rust. The moving parts of the crusher including the crushing mechanism are made from metal, more precisely aluminum and steel. This crusher needs to be mounted to a wall or some other vertical surface. It comes will all mounting hardware needed, so you can install and use the crusher as soon as you get the tool.
One thing that makes ZING can crusher stand out among the rest is its semi-automatic crushing features. It automatically drops a crushed can below the crusher, so you don’t have to take it out with your hands and throw it in the trash. If you have bought the crushing unit itself without the collection barrel, place a trash can or a garbage bag under the crusher, so all crushed cans drop directly into the trash. But if you want something more practical and better looking, you can purchase an additional collection barrel, or purchase the crusher and collection barrel as a single kit. The collection barrel is a made from the same nylon material and can store up to 48 crushed 12 oz aluminum cans. When a can gets crushed, it drops directly into the barrel. After the collection barrel is filled with aluminum cans, it can simply be removed from the crusher, so you can empty the container from the crushed cans and also clean it from any leftover liquids that spilled from cans.
The size of the collection barrel is 16×8 inches (40.6×20.3 cm). The size of the whole can crushing unit is 20x6x3.5 inches (50.8×15.2×8.9 cm) and the weight is 5.8 pounds (2.6 kg). ZING 7008 crusher is made in the USA.
