    You are the only one who can know how much garbage your ship is going to generate each day and the number of days that garbage needs to be stored on board.

    dang, I had no idea they were over a Grand.
    But they work pretty good and 1 to 4 is just what they do on a single stroke. Real world is whatever it will crush to given the pressure.
    Seems they were more popular decades ago something about bigger houses and local Garbage unable to do more cans do to contract with city or something, or for people in the boondocks who had to haul their own trash.

    Also used to compact Weed.
