    Will a Badger 1 garbage disposal run off a dedicated 15A circuit?

    Specs:

    Type of Feed: Continuous
    On/Off Control: Wall Switch
    Motor: Single Phase
    HP: 1/3
    Volts: 120
    HZ: 60
    RPM: 1725
    Amp. (Avg. Load): 6.7

    Thanks!

    It will be fine.
    Badger 1: 6.7 Amps 1/3HP
    Badger 5: 6.9 Amps 1/2HP
    Badger 5XP: 8.1 Amps 3/4HP

    I went with the 5XP when I had to replace mine. No issues (the unit is bigger though) and I love extra power in anything.
