Waste King 5000 5 Horsepower


High Volume, Mass Feeding Operations Where Peak Loads Are Extreme and Volume of Difficult Waste is Continuous or Very Heavy. For Example, a Large Factory Restaurant or a Hotel

Waste King Exclusives:

  • Anti-Jam Swivel Impellers rotate out of the way of an impending jam, then fall back into grinding position, pulverizing waste particles
  • Stainless Steel Undercutter Blade located beneath the grind ring snips fibrous and stringy waste into small particles making them less likely to clog drain lines
  • Hush-Cushions isolate the unit from metal to metal contact, significantly reducing noise level. Hush-Cushions are specially compounded and designed to withstand vibration and tension, and have a built-in safety splash guard

  • Fan cooled motor with ball bearing construction, and integral overload protection
  • Dynamically balanced for smooth, long wearing operation

Models 5000-3, 5000-38, and 5000-38S are equipped with a drain outlet for connection to a conventional 3" trap. The trap may be connected to a 3" branch waste line running directly into a waste stack. We recommend a slope in the waste line of not less than 1/4" per foot. Limit the 3" drain line to a turn free run of 15', then connect to a 4" or 6" line or stack. Connect directly to waste line, not through a grease interceptor.

Motor Data:

5000-3, 5000-38, and 5000-38S 60 cycle 3 Phase 5 HP 1740 RPM 208-220/440 volts 16.0/8.0amps.

Bearing permanently lubricated. Manual reset overload protection in motor.


The legs can be cut shorter if the unit must be lower than the minimum shown for the screw adjustment. 2" clearance must be maintained beneath the motor for ventilation. For example, on a flat floor models 5000-3 and 5000-38 can be shortened by 1 1/2".

If space between disposer and wall is insufficient to allow for installation of trap, waste line may have to be at an angle to the wall as shown. See disposer leg modification instructions.


Disposer assembly includes disposer, mountings, and drain outlet. Other items shown in gray are available in mounting systems or ordered separately. Installation should be made in accordance with local codes. All specifications subject to change without notice. Assembly should be installed in accordance with Waste Kings printed installation instructions. ( * Items available through Waste King. )
